Hi everyone. I am new to the group and new to Atkins. I have been tying to follow rules exactly. I'm having a little trouble getting my full 20 carbs a day. I love this diet tho because I always feel full and I just plain feel better all around. I need a heart and lung transplant but have to lose 120 lbs first. I have no luck with counting calories. Always hungry. I have already lost 9 lbs in 1 week.

You don't have to get all your carbs in, that is just a maximum. Just make sure you get the recommended number of veggies.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

The good thing with this diet is you never count calories, you only count net carbs, which is Total Carbohydrates minus Dietary Fiber= Total net carbs. If you go to the Atkins official website it has a pdf version of acceptable foods in the introduction phases that can be eaten. Plan a day a head to see what you want to eat so that you can prepare your journal of foods. See if this works for you.
