How much fat can you eat a day on Atkins, is there a limit on it? What about the calories? I need help with this.

If you're starting with induction, there's no real limit to the fat(*) - the only things you should be tracking is carbs/net carbs and fiber.

Carbs low, fiber high.

* Eating sticks of butter is a bad idea no matter what. Wink

I might as well add that my fat intake has been off the charts this week. Chorizo, butter-fried eggs, greek yogurt, feta cheese, greasy hamburger patties with bacon...

Feeling great.

In the early stages, more is better...fat that is. As you progress to later phases, the fat intake becomes more of a factor. But that comes later. Cool

Just eat until you are satisfied and only eat when you are hungry, but don't go more than 6 hours without eating. Like others have said, we don't count fat on Atkins and tracking calories only helps if you cannot lose by cutting out carbs. Refer back to the book when in doubt. Smile Good luck!

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

Maybe switch it up a bit. There are different things to do. Have a off keto day, Eat high calories, and then later do some fasting.

What can I put in my coffee?
I'm trying to keep my sugars down, but love flavored coffee creamers. Any creative ideas for low-sugar things I can put in my coffee to sweeten it up?

stopped tracking years doesnt have to be forever
I stay pretty steady since being on maintenance for a number of years. I tend to track occasionally just as check up on myself.

New Study suggests a metabolic advantage for low carb diet
Ah, you deleted that comment. Anyway, I never claimed it was simple. I've struggled for 18 years with it. I think I finally have it down. :)

Here is an account of it That is pretty astounding if correct. So will this lead to more correct advice by those in charge. Probably not
