Do you have to do induction to lose?
Sugar is the number one no-no on Atkins. Seriously. It will not work if you include sugar. Creamer itself is full of chemicals and hydrogenated fats. It's best to use full heavy cream or halfnhalf with a Hazelnut sugar-free sweetener.

Atkins is amazing! Why not give it a try? Do some studying over at atkins.com. They have some great free lessons that will help you get started.

Gaining instead of losing
Atkins is so amazing! It will make your body so healthy for your life. But in order to enjoy the huge benefits of Atkins you have to give it your all and do it totally correctly.

I took a quick look at your diet calendar and I can definitely give you some advice.

Induction is 20 NET carbs per day, not less, with 12-15 of them coming from veggies. (the veggies are NON-negotiable)

Women must eat at least 1500-1800 calories per day.

60-70% of your calories should be from fat.

Green peas, cottage cheese, and beet are all not Induction foods.

Once you've revamped your menu to reflect the guidelines of Atkins I'm positive you'll have lifetime success!

Total Carbs - Fiber = NET carbs

trying the atkins
Gidgamoe,
Very bad advice and not at all what Dr. Atkins says. Induction is a 2 week jump start to weight loss and a way to get rid of cravings. Some people choose to stay on Induction for a bit longer. However, if you want LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off--for your LIFETIME, then you absolutely MUST lose most of your weight in OWL as Dr. Atkins intended. Some people aren't able to add back in every rung of the carb ladder, but the key is to find out what you can and can't eat to have LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off.

It's NOT about losing weight--that's the easy part. It's about the LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off.

Finding a Maintenance food plan after Atkins
It sounds like you did not follow all 4 phases of Atkins--sounds like you stayed on Induction the whole time you were dieting?

Induction is a 2-week jump start to weight loss and a way to get rid of your cravings. MOST of your weight should be lost in OWL (phase 2) where you introduce new foods slowly and methodically according to the OWL carb ladder. (all of the foods you listed would be added in in phase 2) Then with 10ish pounds left you head to Pre-Maintenance and then Maintenance. You REALLY should read about the amazing Atkins plan.
