Thanks, I'll order some and see how it goes. Any low carb canned tomato products out there?

No, not an astronomer, but I am very interested in the universe.

I love these tips, Cosmicstargoat. Thanks!

-AVOID Diet Sodas like the plague. Diet sodas will fool your body into thinking its getting something and when it realizes its not, it will ravage you with hunger pangs. Just don't.

-Eat the proper ratio of fat/protein. Fat is your friend. Again, don't gorge on meat (or anything else)

-Make sure most of your >20 grams of carbs are from vegetables, not food processing additives.

-Don't weight yourself more than every two weeks. I know that it's tempting and everyone wants that gratification, but daily fluctuations can send you into a psychological tailspin. Hide the scale.

-Don't Panic. If you screw up, don't think that all is lost. Simply forget it and stick to your guns the rest of the way.

-No alcohol. I love beer like sex, but you cannot rationalize with "Well, Jack Daniels doesn't have carbs, so I can have some instead of beer. Just say no.

-Give yourself time. It took a long time to get overweight, so how can you rationally expect to solve this issue in days or weeks?

-If you're stalled or not losing, come here for help. There are lots of reasons and some of us can help. Some drugs like statins or Singulair for asthma can make it had to lose weight. Just ask us for help.

You're welcome. I wrote them as much for me as for everyone else. It's so easy to get discouraged, rationalize, fall off the wagon and give up. I know, I've been there and it is painful. I still think that they most important key is to educate ourselves about nutrition. When I get discouraged, I pick up the Atkins book or watch the Dr. Robert Lustig video again.

Low carbs does work. Low carbs is the answer, there is no doubt in my mind. Anything that is worth achieving usually come at a price, nothing is easy.

dagnyt- Isn't keeping track of our carb intake surprising? I thought I was at 5 carbs one day, but was really at 18.

Cosmicstargoat- I am watching the video. I am loving it and on part 5. WOW!!! This is so enlightening and finally makes sense about why I wasn't losing any weight on a 1200 calorie diet for years. Also, explains why I developed hypoglycemia based on insulin resistance. Everyone should watch this. I am wondering why low carb diets aren't being embraced by the majority of the medical community.

Sails- I am in love with Low Carb Linda's recipes. Everything I've ever tried of hers is delicious. Her pizza tastes just like pizza (induction friendly). Her chile relleno casserole is amazing and even her pork fried rice. All induction recipes.

Big Stevie- Way to stay on plan in a social eating situation!

LoveLosingit- HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!

Day 4 was tough. I was hungry all day. In another thread someone said drinking alcohol causes cravings. Well I sure had them yesterday after having one drink on day 3. I dont know if it was related to the alcohol or not but i wont be finding out again any time soon. Good news is I fought through it and ate right all day. Hopefully today will be better.

A couple people have already said I look thinner. I think carbs just puff you up.

It's a political and economic issue. The Food Companies are not about to let their big selling products be undermined by something as mundane as THE TRUTH. There are a lot of dollars at stake. Just look at the explosion of the phenomena known as Energy Drinks. Those things are absolute poison. Look at Gatorade, for example. Even the G2 version is off the charts for carbs.

America and the world is sick and getting sicker. The enemy is sugar. Only until there is an outcry like there was for cigarettes will anything be done. Corporate America will not relinquish these profits without a fight, count on it. The key is education, but unfortunately this country is becoming dumber as they become fatter.

It's a big, complex problem.

Last week I borrowed Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution Cooksbook from the library. I tried some of the recipes and they were really good. I needed some new ideas and everything was easy.

I know about Linda's Low Carb website. Anyone else find any good low carb cookbooks or recipe websites?

Want to share something you've created?

Mmmmmmmm, slimy worms for dinner!!
I have some in my fridge, too. I'm unsure of what to do with them. I'd like to know what other people do with them. My plan was to use them with veggies and a bit of LC alfredo sauce. Maybe tomorrow.

We're in Pax River.

The recipe I found for the OMM is:

1/4 cup ground flax
1tsp- 2tbsp butter ( i guess it varies??)
1 egg
1/4 tsp baking powder
cinnamon
splenda

mix dry ingredients in a coffee cup, add wet ingredients...pop into mic for 1 minute..(mine takes 1 min 30s) I liked it with extra butter spread on top and cinnamon.
We're at Ft Meade, but I'm currently in Cali for training. I'll be back soon though

I've found that the shirataki type noodles go best with Asian style dishes and stir fries. Personally I didn't like them with Italian dishes, but that's just my opinion.

Thanks! I do like stir fry. Do the noodles go in toward the end? I usually put chicken, mushrooms, chopped cabbage, egg sometimes, pepper, onion. not necessarily in that order though...

Ack! Somebody please smack me upside the head or tell me not to freak or something.

I stepped on the scale (after eating dinner) and it showed a 4 pound gain!! I'm freaking out!

I know, logically, that I should not be getting on the scale after I ate dinner. I also know that I drank way less water than I should have today. I know that I barely ate any vegetables today too. (about 2 cups of lettuce, 3 slices of green pepper, 1/4 of an avocado, and 2 tomato slices, about 1/4 of a cucumber, and 2 carb-free dill pickles)

Still...4 pounds! UP! Totally wrong direction here!

As far as how I feel...mostly I feel great. Plenty of energy, no afternoon slump where I feel like I need a nap.

I've been having heart palpitations that annoy the crap out of me, but otherwise I feel great.

I have not gone off the plan at all. Not one tiny bit. If I come through 2 weeks of this with a gain I'm going to cry.

Oh, I'm on day 5 of induction.

Dagnyt- Post some of your menus? Maybe some old pros can help you. No worries. I know that my weight can go up even 5 pounds during the day from food and water.

Cathy and Catrapoin- I will try some asian dishes with the shirataki, though my chicken alfredo was delicious. But, hey, I'm Italian. I could put chicken alfredo sauce on anything and love it.

Today, I wasn't that hungry. Hubby took me golfing 14 holes yesterday for his Bday and I was tired today.

B-flax muffin with cream cheese
L- One chicken breast
S-another flax muffin with cream cheese
D- ribeye and creamed spinach.

Sure!

Yesterday:

Breakfast - 2 eggs, 1 ounce of cream cheese, about 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar, about 2 ounces of breakfast sausage (checked to be sure, no sugars or carbs)

Lunch - 2 ounces of roast beef, 1/2 tablespoon of Ken's ranch dressing (1 carb), 2 dill pickles (no more carbs than 1/4 of a cucumber)

Snack - small handful of pork rinds

Dinner - 2 cups romaine, 4 slices of green pepper, 1/4 avocado, 2 small tomato wedges (maybe 1/8 of a tomato), a few chunks of celery (less than a stalk), boneless/skinless chicken breast with a homemade spice rub (no sugar)
ranch made with sour cream and mix. no carbs in the mix, no sugars. about 1 tablespoon

Snack and dessert - flourless/carbless chocolate cake (made in the microwave..got the recipe here. Splenda, egg, cocoa powder, baking soda, cream of tartar), cheese chips (small amounts of shredded cheddar and grated parmesan cooked in the microwave until crispy). About 8 chips.

One coffee in the morning. Water during the day, dinner, and evening.

Same breakfast this morning with a side of bacon.

I imagine this is where people struggle...

I think that's it for now.

Dagnyt-I understand why you weighed yourself later in the day. Sometimes the scale can be addictive. Try to do it in the morning after the bathroom.

I would enter all that food into ****** or another tracker and see how many calories you were eating. I was thinking the last few weeks that caloried didn't matter but I didn't lose. Yesterday, I kept my carbs under 15 and calories at 1800 and lost a pound and a half.
Hope that helps,
Denise

Yesteday I ate 1,419 calories. Too many carbs yesterday though I had 27 according to that site. The carbs that I'm getting dinged on the most are eggs! The last time I did Atkins, eggs were the big thing. Everyone talked about eating loads and loads of eggs. I'm not even going crazy with them, just 2 in the morning. And then if I have that fake cake thing, there's one in that. But that right there is almost 5 carbs!

I'm thinking I might have to stop eating eggs altogether. What sucks about that is I finally found a breakfast that I like! The eggs, with cream cheese, sausage and a little shredded cheddar....it's perfect! I don't feel sick after eating it, it's filling and fulfilling.

I agree it was silly to weigh in after a day of eating. But even this morning, I'm still up a pound. Today I'm going to try to drink more water. Maybe that'll help.

I didn't mean to post a link to anything bad. Sorry about that! I do track my intake, that's all I was trying to say.

Anyway, the site tells me that I'm eating under the amount of calories I should intake to lose weight. And my carbs were 7 higher than they should have been. But I really don't understand the egg thing.

I'm really frustrated.

Dagny-Okay here is what I've read from others...I am still learning, too....

There might be a lot of sodium from some of the foods like pork rinds which can make you retain water. If so, drink tons of water. Are you going to the bathroom? Constipation can add weight. Splenda stalls some people. Cocoa powder can spike blood sugar. Caffeine stalls some people. Cheese and cream cheese are more stalling than eggs from what I have heard. I don't think two eggs has all that many carbs? I might try cutting down to 15 carbs ( a few less veggies?) to make sure you are under 20. And if all that doesn't work, maybe up your calories a little because 1400 might be telling your metabolism to slow down.

Just some ideas.

WOW EXCELLENT information, thanks for posting. I've been snacking on pork rinds (plain), but will slow that down due to the salt content.
