I've been snacking on boiled shrimp in the afternoons. There are several induction friendly snack ideas, but this is just one "go-to" option.

I'm in Texas too and just waiting for shrimp season. I just can't eat that imported farm raised stuff from Indonesia.

A pickle, or a pickle wrapped with a slide of deli meat or cheese.

I also microwave pepperoni slices. Yum.

I tried microwaving American cheese to make "chees-its" . . . but didn't work so well; maybe someone can give me advice.

ejw, is sodium an issue for you? I find I need to supplement my diet with extra sodium.
My issue with pork rinds is portion control. I only like them once in awhile anyway, as a change of pace.

Sliced cukes or radishes (with salt, for me) are good. You can also mix them with a small bit of sour cream for a bit of extra fat.

Half an avocado, or a small bowl of olives are a good snack.
As is jerky or meat sticks . . . . but always read the label, as some are loaded with sugar.

Here is a good one I haven't done in a while.
Take a slice of deli meat, put cream cheese all across meat, sprinkle with green onion small slices, roll up meat and slice into small cross sections....eat and enjoy. very good..

I have never been able to make cheese crisps with American processed cheese food, but I make it lot with regular cheese. Just shred it or slice it and put it on parchment paper in the microwave for two minutes or so. It browns and gets crispy. YUM.

Other snacks I keep on hand:
  • dill pickles or olives (especially good at cutting cravings for sweets)
  • Nuts and nut butters
  • cream cheese
  • Diet A&W with HWC (tastes like a root beer float!)
  • Hard cooked eggs (sometimes with a smear of mayo)
  • Mozzarella sticks, cheese slices
  • Pepperoni and cream cheese
  • pepperoni microwaved until crisp
  • herring in sour cream (another kinda weird one, but I love it)
  • Liverwurst heated with cream cheese as a great dip for celery or pork rinds
  • Egg salad (also a good dip)
  • Beef summer sausage, or salami, or other sausages, sliced thin

I like the pork rinds with franks.

Tonight I had some olives and feta cheese....probably doesn't help with the sodium issue though

Some of our favorites:
  • Bell pepper (mix it up in colors!) with dressing/dip
  • Celery with creme cheese
  • Olives and cheese
  • 1/2 avocado with roasted chicken (from leftovers or Costco rotisserie)
  • Shrimp
  • Leftovers from dinner
  • Mini caprese salad (tomatoes w/ mozzerella drizzled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, italian spices, parm cheese)
  • Sardines
  • Cukes with dip and a protein

We are on induction, but I'm looking forward to some nuts each day in the next phase!

Deviled eggs are my favorite, but I just wish they weren't such a pain to make. And my husband, who is not eating LC, eats them up!

Sharp cheddar cheese block (in moderation).

Pork rinds with guacamole or cream cheese dip (also in moderation, because both dips are so delicious that I could eat an entire bowl).

Crispy bacon strips.

Olives.

Raw broccoli with dressing.

If you're doing Atkins '72 Induction, skip the almonds and 1000 Island dressing.

Deviled Eggs are my go to ( but agree that they are a pain to make )
string cheese
celery with dip

My new favorite thing is a product called Moon Cheese ...only like the pepper jack flavor though, the others are too rich ...but it helps with the need for a crunchy snack.

Well, thank you dear.

I find Atkins '72 Induction very easy other than getting your head around no more snacking. Remember that's what got most of us here. I ate chips, chocolate anything and ice cream sometimes in the same darn night but part of this is dumping habits cause that's all they are, really! That craving isn't in your gut, it's in your head so if you can't control that "grazing" feeling, try to reach for something that won't sabotage your efforts. You want to break that vicious cycle, right? This is a very easy way of dropping that weight and getting the body you want and deserve! I won't pretend there isn't a huge commitment required on your part but if you give it 100%, it will give you back the same. It will only be hard if you're not in it to win it! Good luck Noemi. C'mon girl, enough is enough and it's your time to be everything you wanna be!! I'm rooting for ya!

I need to eat snacks due to blood sugar issues and the Atkins stuff I've read recommends 3 meals and 2 snacks. Today I had celery with an egg salad made from hard-cooked eggs, dill relish, green olives and mayo. It was excellent!

Thanks Bonny-Jean. When I see successful people like you, it makes the dream of having a healthy body more real and achievable. It can really be done! I appreciate the support... It's really up to us to do what needs to be done and make a change in our own lives... Sometimes, we get used to the status quo, we just accept what we have, it's the easiest way... But it is dangerous - that's how people end up morbidly obese, sick and bedridden.

Exactly Noemi!! Almost all diets and/or woe work if you work the diet!! The key is a little research on what "kind" of woe will work for you. I'm a meat eater so Atkins sounded perfect for me. Low cal, WW etc don't have enough protein for me so Atkins was a perfect fit but even Atkins wouldn't have worked if I didn't follow it to the letter without excessive snacking, cheating, etc. Everything, including exercise will work but you have to keep at it. Hey, I've had the odd "cheat" as I call it but I have one forkful of something low carb once a week, maybe!! To me, that's a cheat!! Like stealing 2 fries off my kids plate or eating a 1/3 of a cheddar biscuit at Red Lobster or an extremely level tbsp of sf peanut butter. Again this is one thing a week or two and I feel like it's a cheat, well it is a cheat but it keeps me sane and on track. One day and a time. Get thru that day and then at the end of the week you won't believe the reward you will see! Again, all the best in your journey and if you feel like deviating, jump on the boards and talk to someone. It helps!

Oh my gosh, I found, by accident a de'lish treat. I was mixing up my daily 8 oz of Silk Almond Coconut Blend Unsweetened (45 kcals 1 carb) with 2 T Da Vinci SF Caramel Syrup for my AM foo foo coffees. And I licked the spoon and then took a sip before I poured it into my coffee -- lordy, wonder if you can freeze it like ice cream cause it was the BOMB!!!

Thanks Bonnie my dear for introducing me to all the Silk products... you are the BEST!!

I LOVE Silk products and I'm so glad you do as well.
I emailed them and told them how impressed I was and they sent me 2 x $1.00 coupons.

I tried the same thing with Dove and they sent me nothing!!

Deviled eggs are super easy to make now that they sell pre- cooked hard boiled eggs! We buy them at Costco, you get a bunch for a low price.

Can you get Blue Diamond Almond "Milk" products there as well? Cause they are exactly like Silk and I can find Blue Diamond Almond Coconut Milk Unsweetened at Walmart but not the Silk blend brand... I've even bought some of the shelf stable Almond/Coconut Milk Unsweetened so that I NEVER run out, they expire in like 6 mons on the shelf. Once opened you have to refrigerate them....

Read the labels though, some of them have more carbs because of the "shelf stabilizing agents"! I bought those that had 1 carb per 8 oz.
