Post day one....atkins

well today is day one and I'm feeling ok... a little strange not eating bread with my eggs this morning. But breakfast was yummy anyhow. Now I am working on a salmon salad with celery and cheese for lunch and it's awesome... better than my "old" lunches ever were!!
One question.... How often should I be weighing myself now that I have started Atkins? I don't want to become obsessive with the scale, but I do want to know if I'm losing.

I have another question... I have read about people using salsa for flavour... do you have to use a specific type, or is all salsa low in carbs?

Hi chipmunkis (cute name). I am also starting atkins (again). I have started a few times actually. The first 3 days were always hard but once your over the hump it gets easier. I also felt crummy the first couple of days but the energy did come a few days later.

I could never tolerate so many eggs so I just drink an atkins shake with my vitamins in the morning. The food can be great, it just takes time. My weakness is fast food. I have 3 kids and sometimes I just don't take the time. Try using the ketostix (available at grocery stores). They are very motivating. Don't get discouraged if you fall off temporarily.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Thanks posie I will keep that in mind! I am really excited about doing this, but a little nervous too... I haven't actually EVER been on a diet, or changed my eating habits before and I really am a carboholic- I crave bread and pasta, not sweets, so it's hard that way. But I really want to lose weight and feel better. I am just so sick of no energy and not liking how I look.

chipmunkis,

I forgot to mention about the salsa. Some bottled salsa that's not refrigerated has added sugar so try to avoid it. Fresh salsa is better (tastes better too). I love Chevy's. Salsa is good for you too but during Induction you're still supposed to be careful with it (after all it is a carb). I would only use a small amount on your salad or eggs etc.

I'm gettin hungry!
