Looks good to me. This is 1445 calories. You could probably up the calories a bit more if you wanted to.

cream contains quite a few carbs, so be careful. Also, some people don't tolerate dairy very well.

I recommend upping the calories a little bit, maybe add a bit more fat like mayo and butter to your diet.

Some people don't see big losses immediately. I am one of these people. It's more like a slow and steady wins the race kind of thing for me. Are you losing inches?

Are you eating enough salt?

Are you taking in enough fluids?

What kind of fluids are you drinking?

Do you consume artificial sweeteners?

What kinds of oils and fats do you use for cooking, and how much?

Sending lots of good thoughts to you and I hope you see the scale move down soon!

I don't think there's any need to go out of your way to add more fat when you are already getting plenty of fat in whole eggs, higher-fat ground beef, bacon, 3/4 of a cup of cream, salmon, etc.

Your protein servings look very small to me--3 ounces at two meals? Why such small portions? And, I don't know what plan you are following but you can have more than 1 cup of vegetables on Atkins. I think you might want to get more of your carbs from salads and veggies.

I think I am eating enough salt, don't want to over do it I have high blood pressure.

I drink water with lemon all day. and 1 cup of coffee in the morning.

I do have 2 equals with my coffee, I just ordered swerve, will switch to that.

I use olive oil in my cooking, a few tablespoons.

[QUOTE=Mimosa23;16776485]cream contains quite a few carbs...


?? Cream is .42 carbs per tablespoon. So for 3 carbs you can have a couple cups of coffee w/cream, or a half cup of whipping cream. That's a nice treat imo, for pretty few carbs. Sometimes I add blackberries (3.12 NCs for 1/2 cup) to my cream in a blender and for about 6 carbs it's my LC version of ice cream.

I think your menu looks fine, but I have a bit of a different take on this. For me, the key to getting on board and staying on board was finding low carb foods and recipes I really enjoy and look forward to. I now have collected so many recipes and ideas I love, and I've become so happy on this woe! Feeling satisfied and not deprived was huge for me, and gave me the patience I needed to wait for the weight to come off. And it sure has, but it wasn't fast.

I think you could enjoy a few more calories if it means tastier and more fun food. Because you know, it can't just be a diet, or you put it all back on. It has to be a lifestyle, which imo, means you should enjoy it, and when you do, you're not so miserable and frustrated, it gets to be like a hobby, something you can grow and make better and better. It takes some time, but it's so very worth it.

Hang in there and good luck.

Lemon juice could be the culprit. Try cutting it out for a few days and see what happens. It is a great diuretic, but it can cause stalls especially if you are using more than 1 tsp a day. Try and lose the sweetener if you still see no improvement and stop counting your calories... eat when you are hungry, make it satisfying enough so that you don't have cravings and enjoy. You will get there, just watch for those hidden carbs. You will get there ~

A fluid ounce of fresh lemon juice contains about 2.5 grams of carb.

That's 6 teaspoons. 2 tablespoons. I really would not go fretting about lemon juice.

Calories count for some of us, but before you cut calories, I'd ditch the lemon juice and cut back on the whipping cream. This would allow you to increase your protein a bit if you want. I usually do 4 oz of protein at lunch and again at dinner.

When I eat 3 hardboiled eggs, I mix the yolks with 2 Tbs real mayo. I'd probably make sure to add fats if I'm eating fish (not one of my favorites since it rarely satisfies me.)

If you're having difficulty losing, changing up your diet is smart and, my .02, I would not increase the calories...just perhaps rearrange them a bit (see above).
