Have you heard about muffin in a minute? Most people try it on induction Made with ground up flaxseeds (and egg, butter, baking powder)

You don't have mayo but you have flaxseeds? What do you mean? It is exactly two foods that are interchangeable? Like I do not say I am out of mayo so I will make my tunasalad with flaxseeds instead

Atkins Induction
The carb craving will likely stop. I would suggest eating in beginning. Keep eating protein and fat and drinking water. Keep yourself full. But do not have carbs (expcept for those few veggie ones) Once ketosis hits it will be much easier for you to control your cravings

how is it that atkins endulge chocolate candies are 19 carbs according to fatsecret but only 1 net c
I am not sure I would say "any other governing body" as UK and EU countries and many other countries list net carbs on their label (carbs with fibers deducted) I am not sure about this "extremely small impact" either. Some sugar alchols have been shown to have a significan impact on blood sugar. It depends on what they are. Maltitol used by the Atkins company in their chocloates is one of the sugar alchols with a definite impact.

You will have to set your fatsecret to show net carbs. Do that by clicking my settings and add net carbs at the bottom of the page. Do you understand the difference between total carbs and net carbs? On the Atkins diet counts net carbs fiber and sugar alcohols are deducted (although personally am sceptical when it comes to those candies I am not so sure about the atkins count) I think I would count at least have of those sugar alcohols myself as most people probably absorb them as carbs. If I have sugar alcohl that is what I do

Diffence in carb values
When you are on the page where you add food into your diary you should see to your right something called "my custom foods". When you click add custom foods you can add your own in.

Atkin Advantage Bars
I was wondering about the statement " count half the fiber"of Mechville;s above. I have not come across that. Is that the advice given to diabetics? I really have not seen that in connection with low carbing before.

Proposed Food Label Changes in the US
About the serving sizes - the current labels are so deceptive now. Most people do not really know how much energy they are eating. I think on this board most people ascribe to the idea that people can lose weight by regulating their food intake. If that is indeed a way to not get obese it should be easier (than it is now) to regulate food intake. I also get annoyed by the so called zero calorie or low calorie foods sould where the calories are low only because the serving size is ridiculously low and you can actually round the number down to zero. (spray oil is an example of this) This is just not helpful But personally as a low carber I think the composition of the food is much more important than the calores so I do not believe making a big screaming calorie number is what is going to help people become thin or stay thin Sugar seems to be accepted more and more now as possible being appetite stimulating (unlike some of the other refined carbs in foods) and again the sort of general public need to be able to have information to regulate. I think this is especially true for items we buy for childredn where we want the food to be worth while eating (nurtrious and not just energy fillers and treat tasting) But I am not a big fan of the government taking charge and trying to push us in making certain choices over others. Governments are too bureaucratic and tend to just push single item messages which seems to hurt more than help. I do want labels that are accurate - and informative. My wish would be that food companies would have to disclose all the chemicals they add to food or use in making the food. I do not really understand why the law lets them get away with certain things.

What's wrong with the modern diet
If you take a sick pet to the vet and the first thing the vet often asked is what are you feeding it.... Your human doctor on the hand rarely assk about your diet if you come in with an ailment. There may be an optimal diet for us humans just like there is for different animals. And perhaps adjusting diet can help us heal. I certainly believe that.

Banting ice cream
I have not heard about the Banting diet. Is that William Banting the Victorian who Dr. Atkins mentioned in his first book? Your dessert sounds good. I often use pumpkin for dishes.

Anyone tried the new dry miracle noodles?
They are called Kanten Pasta and made with agar. Just saw them at the low carb grocery in Canada. I have not had them but I am curious I have yam noodles frequently http://www.miraclenoodle.com/p...

New U.S. Food Labels Being Proposed Today
It does not look like the entire package will be on the label but there seem to be a proposed change to serving sizes. ETA I see the dual one after clicking around. I really like that one I think it is an improvement. I like the European/UK system of always listing 100 grams of the product. But that is not something that will happen. I wounder what will count as added sugar.

how to make custom entries on food record
You need to set your FatsSecret to show net carbs. To do that find MySetting then go to the bottom of the page and choose netcarbs. I am pretty sure that the person who entered teh Atkins bar in the system has the correct netcarb
