What are you eating today???

I'm stalled on the Atkins approach. It appears I may have been eating too much protein and not enough fat. Looking for some menu suggestions. Thanks for sharing what has been working for you.

Check out this old thread:

Daily Menus-High Fat/Moderate Protein/Low Carb

...and maybe this thread:

NK (High Fat Diet, Medium Protein, Low Carb) Grocery List

...and we are working on a menu planning thread, in the rough draft stage right now:

Rough Draft - NK Menu Planning

this could be your problem! however, we are also subject to a LOT of fads in the dieting world. this is one of the two bigger ones now. I do not think this is a widespread problem. there are certainly people who need to restrict protein, but I would guess that at least 80-90% of the time it's just a simple matter of eating too much, not the percent of fat and protein. it doesn't hurt to try it!

NK is a fad?

No. It is a refinement of LC. And a very effective one for people. But it calling it a fad is a great way to denigrate it.

NK is no more a fad than Atkins or other variants of low carb. It may not be for everyone, but calling it a fad is kind of insulting to those of us who are following this diet.

I really don't get why you would come on a support forum and bash other people's woe.

This is a persistent 'belief' here and just about any weight loss realms. If one can't lose, then they must simply be eating too much. The simplicity of the notion is enticing but there are so many other factors that it is kind of laughable to think that could be the answer.

N.K. has been around for a long time but not necessarily identified as such. It is simply ketosis brought on by food choices rather than by starving. It has been further refined in a small way by placing importance on the # of grams of protein required. But it is basically an Atkins plan. That has been around for at least 40yrs so I would hardly classify it as a 'fad'.

Can someone please define what "fad" means to them? Because I can see how people would consider NK to be a fad. I would like to understand why it isn't just like every other type of diet out there that people are following religiously.

OP, how much weight do you have to lose? Also what are your stats? Height, weight, M/F, age. How long have you be doing atkins? And which phase are you in?

Definition of fad diet....

Quote:
Noun 1. fad diet - a reducing diet that enjoys temporary popularity
obesity diet, reducing diet - a diet designed to help you lose weight (especially fat)
I think the bolded words are the key in this instance.

Sorry I neglected to answer your question....I post my daily menu on the main board and there are others there that do the same. It is under the title of 'It's THURSDAY.... what are you eating today?'

Another definition I've seen is that a fad diet is based on popularity and not scientific information. Phinney & Volek have done their own research and cited the work of others in their books.

If someone had an objective criticism of the science behind their recommendations I'd be interested in reading about it, but it seems to me that NK is based on science and not a silly fad like that cabbage soup diet.

Thank you. I did review that post, but most appear to be doing the "regular" low carb. I was looking for the menus where people are doing the high fat, lower protein. I eventually went online and purchased the Fat Fast Recipe book. That will help me up the "good" fat intake.

Great idea! I also use an on-line food tracker to help keep my macros in line.
