Hey! I started Induction about 7 days ago and I'm having a really hard time with it. I have actually enjoyed Shirataki noodles with some cheese
But I wanted to start a thread to help new people on induction because I know for a fact its extremely hard. I have lost 10 pounds this week so I know it will pay off. But back to the point; I wanted to start a thread were we put together all out best induction recipes to help those having a hard time. Thanks all and here's my contribution taken from Linda's Low Carb Menus and Recipes: Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Home
2 ounces cream cheese
2 teaspoons granulated Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch of cinnamon
In a small, microwaveable bowl, soften the cream cheese on HIGH 30 seconds. Beat well with a fork until creamy. Add the egg and beat very well until creamy; mix in the remaining ingredients. Use a small rubber spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl so that all the batter is in the bottom. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds; rotate the bowl (do not stir) and cook another 30 seconds. If the center still looks too runny, cook another 30 seconds. It may take up to 2 1/2 minutes total, depending on your microwave. The center should be a bit soft for the danish filling effect. Run a small rubber spatula around the danish, then under it to release from the bowl. Transfer to a small plate. Cool until just warm or cool completely before eating.
Sauce to make it taste better:
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon granular Splenda
Blend all of the ingredients well in a small bowl. If necessary, freeze a few minutes until very thick, but spreadable. Spread over warm Mock Danish.
Total Carbs and stuff:
With granular Splenda:
Per serving: 283 Calories; 25g Fat; 11g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 4g Net Carbs
With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 279 Calories; 25g Fat; 11g Protein; 3g Carbohydrate; trace Dietary Fiber; 3g Net Carbs
Hope you guys participate! Thanks!

There are lots of threads of induction recipes in the recipes section, Jacobloop.
I just want to encourage people not to get too caught up in the fancy stuff right away. Two weeks minimum, up to several months for people with loads to lose, it's just better to eat very plain low carb food. Your proteins and some salad, a few vegetables.
Induction is just as much about changing your mental habits as it is changing your body to burn fat instead of carbs. After a "clean" induction, whether it's two weeks or three months, you can start adding in things like that mock danish and enjoy them more, not comparing them so much to the old carby foods.
At the beginning, people eat a LOT while they are getting into ketosis. Best to emphasize clean fats and proteins and not things that will encourage recreational eating at this transitional time.
Often I don't come back to read threads where I've posted. If you want me to see something, please send me a private message. Thanks!
