I am a single mom with two active teenagers that have smoking metabolisms and are eating all the time. Our home is always busy with teens and friends eating pizza, pastas,ice cream, tacos, mountains of fries and other fun foods.

I started Atkins Induction today. Yesterday I planned my menu for the week and purchased groceries. Today was the first day of this new way of eating. I have a soft-side cooler that will help me get my meals and snacks to work each day.

I've already made a weeks worth of sausage/egg/cheese quiche-like muffins that are already bagged up and ready to go.My snacks are prepackaged as well. I've also got a plan of what I will eat for dinner while the teens eat their pasta and other tempting foods. Some meals will work for all of us and the kids need not know any different. I've bought some of the zero carb powdered drink mixes to help me get all of the water in each day.

I am officially ready to go! I hope other Atkins members will help me out with this. I have a lot to learn.

Atkins Induction 3 weeks not losing
I am a newbie. Just started Atkins for the first time today and I already see that I am going to glean valuable insight from everyone here. I also see that I may have the same problem as Pam.

Because the foods are so satisfying and I am not starving between meals I may have the same problem getting all of the calories in. Since I am just starting I r-e-a-l-l-y want to do this right.

I AM reading the book and have pulled together my first weeks menus from the sample meals in the book. This will put me at aprox 20 grams of Carbs per day but the suggested menu does not tell me how many calories.
