talking to myself is better than binging alone

I highly recommend talking to one's self. Apparently, it's when you start answering back, that there could be a problem Razz.

Is the binging something that you want to talk about?

I'm not on Atkins, but I do low carb. I think it depends: if you want to go on the cruise, and not worry about it while you are on holiday then I think that would be understandable and an approach many people would take. I do generally like to plan and often this would mean taking my own food. Whether this is really possible on a cruise, to be honest I'm just not sure, probably not. I'm also not really sure what type of meals they would serve, if it's buffet style then you may be able to pick the foods that would suit atkins the best. But either way, I do hope you have a wonderful time.

I've never been on any cruise - one through the Canal sounds really interesting. As for food I hear on travel channels all cruises have many food options in their scheduled meals plus optional restaurants. Maybe you could contact the cruise line for the menu availability? My friend just did a cruise and she lost 8lbs in 2 weeks because her room was a long hike to the dining room Smile


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

^ That's actually a really good point. I took a quick look at their site and they seem to have several sample lists of their menus and the options available. On a cruise like that I would imagine they have to plan every meal down to the last martini olive Razz If you rang up and explained that you had some special dietary needs, you might be able to get a menu and then I think you'd practically be able to plan every meal out if you wanted to. Well...except for the drinks Razz You have been doing really well by the look of your calendar.

I was just on a RC cruise myself. Different ship though (Adventure of the Seas). Here's the great thing about dining on a RC cruise. If you have specific diet needs in the dining room, you can simply tell your waiter, who will then pass that on to the amazing chefs they have on board. You can most certainly get an Atkins style meal for dinner without question. Breakfast also shouldn't be a problem, even if you get the buffet rather than order it in the actual dining room. Just eat eggs/bacon or sausage and whatever other Atkins friendly foods they have. For lunch, there is a buffet everyday aboard the ship. You can eat hamburger patties/hotdogs, salads galore, and some more things I can't quite remember. Eating on the islands is really the only tough part.

Also, make sure you don't get too tipsy and start binging on carbs all night. It happens to the best of us!

So anyway long story short, aboard the ship is it is not a problem at all to eat low carb. On the islands, you might have some problems, since that is a little more unpredictable what is available to you.

Cheers and have fun!

I can't say I'm much of a drinker, and I normally wouldn't suggest hard liquor but hey I was looking up carb contents of some alcohols and something on the rocks looks like a pretty safe bet, for carbs anyway Razz Or here is another post on various types. A dry white wine doesn't look too bad.
