Just restarted Atkins after a 6 day induction that didn't go well... I've not lost a pound and haven't gone into ketosis. I'm now afraid of carbs, and am at an all time low as my boyfriend chugs down a monster bowl of oatmeal that smells like HEAVEN. Please someone give me the EASIEST and CHEAPEST daily menu you've done during induction and I will follow it to a tee. I gained all the weight back that I lost after I moved here from Santa Barbara and I'm desperate. I'm CERTAIN that most of it is because I'm not happy here, but here is where I am!

Thanks

A basic day for me on induction -
egg, 1 slice bacon, and coffee with cream for breakfast. For a snack a cheese string.
Lunch - some tuna with celery & mayo. No sugar added jello.
Dinner - any meat, tossed salad and 0 calorie flavored water.
Snack either a Atkins bar or no sugar added jello.
Really push your water intake - it helps to clear out the fat cells. Good luck - Jane

A day for me would be....
Breakfast: Scrambled egg with bacon bits,cheese, and spinach, water
Snack:Celery with small amount of natural peanut butter, water
Lunch: Grilled chicken breast and cucumbers with ranch, diet soda
Snack: pork skins, water
Dinner:Turkey burger and mayo wrapped in lettuce with steamed veggies, unsweet tea with splenda
If I'm hungry before bed or get a sweet urge then I would have a sugar free jello with a dallop of cool whip on top.

For me a typical day is:

Breakfast - Whey Protein shake
Snacks - cheese
Lunch - chicken and bacon salad with olive oil, green peppers, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, red onion
Dinner - this varies - chicken, mushrooms,leeks or steak and a poached egg with asparagus
And 2 litres of water at least every day

I'm the laziest person when it comes to cooking, which makes atkins challenging for me, but here's what I eat on induction:
Jimmy Dean breakfast omelets (cheese or ham & cheese) only 4 net carbs!
Oscar meyer precooked bacon (1 min in microwave...crispy...no carbs!)
banquet sausage rounds (1 min in microwave...mmmm)
I still have my coffee...like 2 - 3 cups a day with splenda and light cream.
salad for lunch, which consists of buying a bag of lettuce and filling a small tupperware each day, cutting up a cucumber and some peppers on sunday night and storing them in a ziplock so I just add that and a small handful of shredded mozzerella. Instant salad. And lately I've been buying the pouches of starkist tuna to put on top of my salad. There's nothing to drain, you just pull it right out of the pouch and add it to the top.
I also found that Ken's Steak House dressing makes 1 g carb dressings that were pretty easy to find in the major supermarkets.
For dinner I like Steak-umm with some melted cheese on top and heinz reduced sugar ketchup (1 g carbs). or baked chicken with roasted red peppers out of a jar on top and some mozzerella cheese.
It does get challenging...what I like to do before I start induction is map out two weeks worth of food (menu) so I have something to follow once I start. It keeps me going.
Good luck!
