If I get bored with the food it's all over. Today I am making turkey meatballs, chicken breasts stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach, chorizo sausage with red peppers and jello dessert. Should last me and hubby a few days.

Ruby, the wonderful thing about Atkins is all the wonderful things you can eat. I am always finding wonderful recipes online that are low carb and Atkins friendly.
Welcome to your journey - May it be prosperous.

Dear Lord, You are the beginning and the end of this great narrative called history. Thank You for writing me into the story. Though I play only a small part, may I play it well. May I honor You with my days and my choices and may I truly know that Your grace works. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Thank you K. Last night I almost went to a chinese restaurant for eggrolls and fine cut chow mein, thought I better get cooking.

I cannot emphasize enough how important preplanning and preparing is for my survival. I am never hungry on Atkins but I eat something every two hours regardless. It's when I am hungry that I tend to make mistakes. I cook up a lot of bacon, prepackage the dry ingredients for MIMs, and other foods that I keep at work so there is rarely a time that I don't have food. Same goes at home - there is always something ready to be eaten when I need.

Well, thanks, I am going to do that too. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all the help I get from friends at FS.

I am the same way. I prepare all my breakfast and lunch meals for the week on Sunday only leaving dinners to think about (so DH can have SOME input) LOL.

I do not prepare in advance for the weekends and that is usualy where I go wrong with either too high carbs or too low calories.

I do the exact same thing Amy. And my weekends are my biggest problems.

I'm not doing Atkins, but I can tell you that for years I've found that cooking a week's worth of food on Sun makes my entire week (as well as weekends) so much easier. I eat every 2-3 hrs so having healthy small meals ready to go keeps me from eating anything that's just laying around. The best part is that if you cook it up, you can put things in individual containers, freeze them, take them where ever & heat them up. I know it's easier for me b/c I'm only doing it for myself but I think the more planned out & prepared you are, the better off you'll do. = )
