eating too much meat?

Hi everyone. I am back to strict Atkins induction. I am also pre menopausal and weaning off a few medications. *Just weaned off Celexa to Wellbutrin.

Anyway, yesterday all I wanted was protein. I had 2 1/2 burgers for lunch. Just meat of course, no bun.

Anyone ever overeat protein on induction, and if so how do you feel about doin it?

Thanks!

I haven't read the atkins plan requirements, but I didn't think there was limit on protein. Usually, if people are working out, to transition fat to muscle mass, people have a hard time eating enough protein. I think the only time protein is an issue is when people have damaged kidney(ies), gout, or some other medical condition in which excess protein is a factor.

Induction means restricting carbs. Fat and protein are to be eaten to satiation. That is the plan and if 2.5 burgers is what it took to make you feel sated, then you are following the plan.

I don't worry about how much protein I eat as long as my carbs are very low because it just never causes a binge effect for me. I eat it until I don't want anymore. However, if I start adding in more carbs, then I have to start counting calories and dealing with cravings.

strickly speaking yes but I personally would just try to avoid the actual 'mix' and enjoy the unexposed meat.

I make my roast in the crock pot, and add only a small jar of pepperoncini's with the juice. I like it much better than the soup mix. Less carbs.

I looked at my soup mix and it has 20 carbs per package. In the wloe batch of meat, you shouldn't get much.

I think it's fine to eat as much protein as you want during induction. When I do induction, though, I know I get into ketosis easier and faster if I make sure to get a lot of fat, so make sure those are fatty hamburgers!

Don't worry about overeating on protein unless you're in a true stall - it is rare to have issues with that, especially when beginning the plan, as protein is often highly satiating/self limiting. The tweaks for lower protein tend to come with folks closer to goal and those who have been on plan for a few years - to get down sufficiently low in a metabolically resistant person, sometimes protein is too insulinogenic and prevents sufficient lypolysis. RARELY is this the case right out of the gate, especially if your protein is not overly lean

I encourage you to also read at least the first half of Phinney and Volek's Art and Science of Low Carb Living. 2 burgers is not too much protein. 6 lean burgers, 6 eggs, an entire turkey breast might be too much.

Your kidneys will be a little stressed the first 3 days, but after that your body will further break down the ketones and they will not go through your kidneys as much, and even less during the next few weeks of ketoadaptation. Eat more fat if you are worried--add coconut oil or dairy if you can, and nuts to keep satiated. If you feel hungry, eat something fatty. Blue Diamond makes these awesome almond crackers that I like to melt cheese over in the microwave--a great low carb, filling, fatty snack. I have 4 crackers and 2-3 oz of cheddar cheese.

Furthermore, there is evidence that low carb/high fat discourages the dissolution of bone calcium phosphate, which might be important for someone in menopause.
