Hi Friends, I am new here and doing Atkins for the last (almost) a week and could use your advice...
I am eye balling this General Mills cereal, it's called fibre 1.
on the nutrition facts it states:
per 1/2 cup
I heared about the ECC (Carb-Fibre=ECC) which is basically carbs that dont stay in the system and are "OK" to eat while doing atkins.
This Cereal's ECC would be 10g (24-14) still allot since im in induction. And I would hope someone would enlighten me to these facts above and if they are 'atkins-kosher' ===> please recommend me some fiber cereals that don't taste like ply-wood (I read that special K low carb tastes like that)
Please confirm this and let me know... I can't eat anymore bologna, cheese and chicken, i'm going nuts...
i'm also daily exercising (moderatly,-fast walk) a 15 minute jog.
I'm not fat, I am skinny in all of my body and ALL my fat decided to go into my stomach, I look like homer simpson.

Go to LindaSue's website for Induction meal planning. Grains are not allowed until that particular rung and some people can't eat them at all. Also Fiber One contains aspartame and other overprocessed ingredients. Oats are a much better whole grain. Maybe you should check out the South Beach Diet which allow fruits & grains after the first 2 weeks. You have to find a plan that works for you.

lisabinil advice is right on target. Choose a program that matches your body so you can stay on it. If you want Atkins, keep reading the book until it is clear. I had to do this a number of times but now the program is natural to me. Also, some of us never can go to cereal because of how it interacts with our digestion. I get my fiber from veggies and nuts. Trying lots of different recipes also keeps the program interesting.
