I agree. Induction for me has to be <15-20 carbs. If I get up around 25 carbs I don't lose anything. Every one is different but if I am not mistaken Induction is supposed to be <15-20 carbs. 25 - 35 is for OWL. The amount of carbs you are currently eating, while lower than the average American diet, would be more appropriate for OWL, but for me 35 - 40 would be maintenance level (CCLM).

I have been on induction for 9 days. So far I have lost 7 lbs. I find it hard to not eat late at night. Soon school will start and I will be in bed early. Arrgghh

According to the Atkins web site, cheese is ok on induction. I wouldn't make a meal out of it, but in smaller quantities it is ok. This is what it said: (sorry, the formatting messed up the chart)


Cheese including:
Type
Serving Size
Grams of net carbs
Blue cheeses
2 T
0.4
Cheddar
1 oz
0.4
Cow, sheep and goat
1 oz
0.3
Cream cheese

0.8
Feta
1 oz
1.2
Gouda
1 oz
0.6
Mozzarella
1 oz
0.6
Parmesan
1 oz
0.9
Swiss

I have been on induction for a couple of months now and am only losing 1-1.5lbs per week ...have from the beginning, never had that big 5-10lb weight loss I hear from people, but I know everyone is different.

I do think I'm probably eating too much cheese though ...I thought it was limitless and didn't think about serving size...I also have been having cottage cheese that I just noticed as 3grams of carbs per 1/2 cup, so that might be an issue too.

I know that 1-1.5 is still a loss though weekly and I'm happy for that, it's just that I have a lot to lose and I'm impatient I guess...especially since my husband is losing twice as fast eating the same thing ( of course ).

Anyone gain on their fist week of Induction?

I started on Monday,gained a pound, then gained 1/2 a pound, lost the half pound, stayed the same and finally today, Saturday, I am back at my start weight. Have been keeping carbs under 20, no bars or shakes, calories 1000-1600.

Yesterday my carbs were 15 with 1000 calories. I guess I have to count both carbs and calories.

I do both ultra low carbs and low kcals -- I wanted quick results and I got them as well as knowing (I hope ) what my maintenance threshold is (1200-1400 kcals and 10-14 carbs daily). I'm so carb-sensitive!!

Rotel has sugar and too many carbs, Queso is not real cheese. Go buy some real chedder cheese, not the slices either which are not real cheese either. Find a good salad dressing that you like with low carbs and 0 sugar or as close to 0 as you can. If your grilled chicken is from home , that's good. If it's from a restaurant or drive-thru, it's probably injected with sugar. I don't see any vegetables either.
Read these guidelines for induction:
4. VEGETABLES-Remember, the 20 grams of carbohydrates that you consume per day should mostly come from vegetables. You can have 3-4 cups of salad or 2 cups salad, 1 cup cooked vegetables per day using only the vegetables on the acceptable food list. This is very important. Eliminating the vegetables may shut down your metabolism and your weight loss will stall.
For your breakfast add 3-4 slices bacon or sausage with no carbs or sugar, plus your eggs.
I hope this helps......

Carri, 1-1/2 lbs per week is great! Keep up the good work...
I would not eat cottage cheese though. It's way too high in carbs. Full fat is 1cup=8grams, low-fat 1 cup=10grams carbs. Just buy some real cheese with low carbs. Use your carbs for vegetables and salad.

You are right Dottie! In fact it looks like Rotel has less carbs and less sugar than any of the cans of stewed tomatoes I have in my cabinet. 4G Carbs and 3Grams sugar for Rotel. I might start using it again because of the low carb count. It's just so hot for me....
Can we agree though that Queso (Velveeta) is not real cheese?

I haven't looked a label in many years, but that is my recollection.

I used to like the spicy rotel, but my tolerance for lots of spicy stuff has moderated of late.
I still can go with a pinch of cayenne in just about anything, but two pinches is one too many.

The lower carb on the Rotel is very good but sometimes I don't want hot unless it is in Mexican type of food where I expect it.. I think that's why I really quit buying it. I'm just not a hot sauce person. It's not in my blood. I went somewhere the other day to eat and they had put hot sauce in the green beans. I told the waitress because I eat there a lot and she said it was the new guy in the kitchen.

Just JO and Crazy1-
I so relate and am coming out of denial once again...I must track both my calories and stay at a very low 11 or so daily carb count. I celebrate that I no longer have the carb cravings as I have eliminated most sugars from my diet BUT I now know that menopause and my intolerance of carbs means that I am super sensitive
Oh Well....
