Hello All Members of Trying to do Atkins Right! I grill lots of meats -hamburger pattys, chicken, pork chops, steak - and grill lots of vegetables too. I have recently learned to make cheese crackers in the microwave and they are just wonderful. Take parchment paper (no other paper will work) and break up a slice of DELUXE cheese into about 9 or 10 pieces spread out on this parchment paper. Microwave on high for 1 minute to 1 1/2 minutes depending upon your microwave. Ready when light brown and bubbly. Let cool and enjoy. You can add flavors you like before microwaving and the texture is wonderful. You may have to try a few batches in your microwave before you find the perfect timing.
I love having the crunch back with no carbs. Loving this Atkins Plan. I can eat real food and still love weight - my kind of eating plan.

Hello. I just started on Atkins (again) three days ago, but I have done it a couple of times in the past three years. I do pretty well eating mostly meat and vegetables. I try to keep it simple. Let me know how it goes! Induction is the hardest part (as I am remembering right now).
The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago; the second best time is today.

Hi Hayley and Carmen,
I have been doing Atkins since April 1st. I've lost 20 lbs. The first thing that is necessary is to read the Atkins book or go on the website to find out more. In a nutshell the lifestyle begins with restricting your carb intake to 20 grams which consist of mostly lean protein and vegetables. No sugar or flour. After awhile you will become very resourcefulSmile

The best advice is if you "fall off the wagon" than don't beat yourself up. Just start over at the next meal. Good luck

Hi all
I have just started Induction today, but I have been off sugar, gluten and all refined flours and grains for 5 weeks. I only lost 3kg doing it this way. I am so surprised to see how quickly the carbs add up. Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing better results. I found an awesome website with the most amazing low car ideas! It's I really enjoyed the cauliflower pizza base recipe! Does not taste like cauliflower but helps me eat it since veggies are a struggle for me. Keep pushing forward...

I'm back to lose the baby weight. My son is 6 months old. I can't do induction yet because I'm nursing but I decided to do 60-100 NC and see if it helps with my bloat. I have been gluten-free for years and cutting dairy also helps me lose weight with a side-bonus that it also helps reduce my seasonal allergies.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!
