I started Atkins induction last November. I did really well until Januaury 3rd right after I started a new job at night. I was tired and hungry and ate what was convenient. And at first it was "oh this granola bar only has ten net carbs, that is safe for now" My new job involves about two hours of constant exercise. But then I fell off completely. High Cal/High Carb foods became the norm. I was still losing weight though, so I rationalized it.
NOW I am not really losing weight. my body has adjusted to the amount of exercise and I miss the energy I had from Atkins. I've been cutting back the high est carb foods the last few days. Preparing to go back into induction. And I started planning a carb blowout. french toast, enchiladas or lasagna (or maybe both?) chips, cake etc. Then I stopped. . . what if. . . rather than a carb blowout, I planned a lowcarb feast day to kick it of? Spinach and Swiss cheese omelets, rib-eye steak, shrimp cocktail, a loaded bacon cheeseburger with a couple slices of tomato.
Tomorrow is super busy, so I"m gonna hit the grocery store today and prep a few things. Who needs a carb blowout? not this LC er :jumpjoy:
