3. Afraid not, too much protein can put you out of ketosis, but you're a big guy, you could probably take 150-200g, I aim for 150g and need protein shakes to do that...

I have been on Atkins '72 since July 5, 2013 "Induction Week 1. I have no more than 6 carbs a day (these are not net carbs -- I'm an A'72 purist, so I don't use those). I have no health issues (just had a check up last month). I just reached my personal weight loss goal of -120lbs in 35 weeks.

I do Bernstein's "Diabetes Solution" which is less than 25gm of carbs and then only from non-starchy vegies so I'm on permanent induction...and have been since January 2013.

Once your body gets used to being so low carb, you'll feel a lot better. I have way more energy, mentally and physically, than I ever did eating higher carb.

Haven't read as much as I should except the things I'm concerned about.
Yeah...no. She's probably thinking ketoacidosis which is a diabetic complication and *NOT* caused by low carbing.

I've substituted a little red hot sauce for ketchup on meat and to be honest, I like it much better. Hot sauce = zero carbs & kcals but check the food label to be sure.

4. What's the best veggies for low carb?
OOps forgot to add the Quote. LOL

Hey, Larry! Congrats on your intial loss and for taking those important first steps toward a low carb lifestyle. You've already gotten a lot of great advice here. You know, no matter how you slice it, low carb - or ANY true change in your eating lifestyle is HARD! In my opinion, since I love meat, fat and all kinds of veggies, LC has been the easiest of any of the plans I've used in my life to lose weight, but even more importantly, the ONLY plan that has also improved my health, my mood, and is working to ward off illnesses I would have most likely faced had I continued on my current path.

The first time you go into a restaurant and order that juicy burger without the bun or fries, or the big steak minus the potato, it's going to feel weird and unfair. But truly, once you start noshing away on that juicy fatty meat, the need for the french fries subsides. And after a while, you truly will begin to feel satisfied with less food than you may have been used to, since the carbs are not fueling your appetite for more. When you asked, "can I eat all the meat I want," the answer really is, eat all you need to feel satisfied. Pay attention to your appetite as you begin to experience less cravings over time.
LC ketchup? Heinz makes a great reduced sugar ketchup that is good. I like to mix it with mayo to put on my burgers.

When you feel a bit "yucky," drink a cup of salty broth/boullion and that will often make you feel better by restoring your sodium/electrolyte balance. Veggies: think green (or white, in the case of cauliflower) for the best options. Broccoli, salad greens, asparagus, green beans, spinach, cukes, zucchini, etc. If you like, or can tolerate, salad greens, a big salad loaded with LC goodies makes such a satifying meal. I work in a hospital so am lucky to have access to a nice salad bar. I use spring mix/spinach as a base, and add olives, a bit of cheese, walnuts, cukes, red peppers, some sliced lunchmeat or chicken salad, boiled egg, a bit of olive oil and usu. my own ranch dressing I make at home (since all that's offered is yucky "low fat" or sugary dressings). Also, roasting veggies gives them incredible flavor and often an entirely different taste profile from your usual raw or steamed. If you like to bake, or bread your foods, almond flour, ground flax, and coconut flours can be a big help. I second the suggestion of reading a book or two on LC and why it is so good for us. "Why We Get Fat," by Gary Taubes provided my "ah ha!" moment and changed my life forever. I will NEVER look at food again in the same way.

I've been a LC fan for a few years now. I've fallen off the wagon more times than I can count and this site give me strength and helps me jump back on. Good luck to you and keep posting and reading on LCF!

Larry I was told by members here to make my own milk. That and broth are the main things that helped me to stay low carb. There are recipes for it on this site.

Thanks for the input everyone!

I only lost around 3 pounds the 2nd week lol.

My wife had to go and help with a family matter and I was by myself.

My wife helps me by making and portioning my food. She is an awesome helper in this quest lol.

My portioning went out the window and I didn't really count the carbs while she was gone I just ate more of the stuff I am supposed to. I made the biggest hamburger in my life and topped it with pickles and muenster cheese and seasoned it with Monterey seasoning.

Hopefully now that she is back home I can get my portioning done right.
