lost 13 lbs past 4 weeks, just real food, no fake food(bars or shakes)
I have to agree with you PeeFat (lol love that name BTW!). Yesterday I was at a GS cookie sale with my daughter next door to Publix. Well, stupid me, I assumed I'd be able to get something to eat at a grocery store! Can you believe there were NO convenience foods I could eat?!? Even the salads had TONS of carbs in them!! On a side note: Who puts potato salad in a Greek salad? So stupid! Well in desperation I grabbed an Advantage bar since it seemed to be the only allowable food available. Well I admit it was very tasty but sweet isn't really what I wanted, and I gradually began to feel not so "right". Here I am today in bed with a horrible stomach ache and nausea and, since I didn't eat anything else out of the ordinary I suspect it was the bar. So I won't try that again! Supposed to be starting OWL today, but the way I'm feeling I don't believeI will be able to eat 25 carbs. Thanks, but no thanks.

Homemeade salad dressing?
I've been on Atkins for a week now and someone there directed me to this site to better track my net carbs. It's nice because I can see exactly how I'm doing and that I'm on track. But I've hit a snag. I don't know how to enter salad dressing! The problem is, I make my own and I always have even before Atkins because I just don't like what's in the shelf brands. Not just the sugar but the soy (I don't eat soy except for shoyu or maybe tamari or tempeh). So here's the thing; do I HAVE to break down each ingredient in my dressing? If so, the problem with that is, I make my dressing in quantity and I don't know how much of any ingredient is in a serving. Is there a quick way I can count it? It's an olive oil vinaigrette that I add Dijon mustard and sour cream to, and then I blend in about a tablespoon of flaxseed oil.
