Starting again after kidney stones

I passed a kidneystone about 4 months ago that almost killed me. The pain was horrible...

I wound like to start back on induction. I haven't had or wanted a diet soda since I passed the stone. For some reason, I've lost the craving the artificial sweeteners.

Do you guys have any ideas on how I should start back...maybe some menus.

Careful with the water consumption. You should drink chicken broth (bone broth is best) to keep your electrolytes in balance.

Please check with your kidney doctor before beginning a low carb plan, or before increasing your water intake drastically. Tons of water is not necessary and can be unhealthful.
Please check with your doctor about increasing electrolytes, particularly sodium, magnesium, and potassium. I'm sure you've heard the 'check with your doctor' line lots of times, but it is really important since you have had kidney issues.

That being said, I think Atkins Induction, eating to fullness and not beyond from simple foods is the best. I try to not push the limits on cheese, cream, and other stuff that's allowed in limited quantites.

I eat simple. Here's my basic plan:

eggs and bacon, with butter for the eggs.
You can change this up when you're sick of eggs. Jodie's pumpkin bake (occasionally), homemade chicken salad eaten with a spoon, and cold leftover chicken or eye of round with a little mayo are favorites of mine for breakfast. JODY'S PUMPKIN BAKE - Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes

salad with full fat ranch and/or olive oil and about 4 oz cooked chicken, beef, pork, or seafood. Cheese or hardboiled egg or avocado if I want it.

small salad w/full fat dressing or olive oil and/or 1/2 to 1 cup cooked veggie with butter, 4-6 oz protein choice, maybe a little cheese or sour cream to add interest to the veggie or protein. Check the official atkins site for a list of acceptable veggies.

snacks-- used only if hungry, not "just because it's snack time"--- dill pickle w/a piece of cold leftover meat, devilled eggs, chicken salad or ranch dip w/veggie strips, or a cheese stick with a couple bites of tuna salad. Can choose a simple, not over-the-top dessert or sweet if desired. I suggest sugar free jello with whipped cream or a small batch of cream cheese clouds. But watch out, those can be addictive.
