Fantastic!

Sensational!
Thanks for setting the challenge - it was the spur I needed. Giving up the bars/diet sodas was the thing that finally put cravings to rest and got rid of that awful need to graze all day long. Will see what happens this week.

OK, reading over the page on this forum about Atkins 72, I have some questions.

Is bacon OK to eat daily?

Is Feta cheese OK for the first few weeks?

"Salads: Two small green salads a day (each less than one cupful, loosely packed) made only of leafy greens, celery, or cucumbers and radishes. Dressings with vinegar, oil, salt, dry spices, herbs, grated cheese, or anchovies. Or else a sour pickle in place of a salad. Plus green olives."

**Does that mean no meats or eggs can be on these salads?**
**Is spinach considered a leafy green?**

Is heavy WHIPPING cream OK? It has 0 carbs per serving. Can this be used in coffee??

I think that's all for now...

I cannot answer all your questions but yes, heavy whipping cream is great in coffee.

Yes, Spinach is a leafy green. Makes a fabulous addition to a salad.

Yes, you can put your meat or eggs into your salad.

I think that somewhere there is a list of the best foods for on induction, have you checked the back of the book you are using?

That info came off this website. I don't have my book yet, but I hope there is a list of food! I am going on vacation in 2 weeks from tomorrow and was hoping to find more info out on specific foods. If anyone does have that list and wouldn't mind sharing, I would be extremely grateful.

From Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution, Fourth Printing, December 1972, pages 136-140:

Quote:Meat: Steaks, corned beef, lamb chops, tongue, hamburgers, bacon, any kind of meat in any quantity--except meat with fillers such as sausage, hot dogs, meatballs, most packaged "cold cuts". (Italics his.)

Fowl: Duckling, turkey, chicken, anything with wings, no stuffing.

Desserts: Gelatin with artificial sweeteners (e.g., D-Zerta).

Condiments: Salt, pepper, mustard, horseradish, vinegar, vanilla and other extracts; artificial sweeteners; any dry powdered spice that contains no sugar.

Drinks: Water, mineral water, Vichy, club soda, beef or chicken broth, bouillon, sugar-free diet soda; coffee*, tea, decaffeinated coffee.

*Special note on caffeine and Diet Cola. Because most heavy people have some hypoglycemia, coffee, which contains caffeine, should be limited to six servings a day (cups). If you know you have low blood sugar, better limit it to three. As of the date of publication, Diet Rite Cola and Diet Pepsi contain not only caffeine, but a significant amount of carbohydrate, so, fair warning, read the labels even on diet drinks carefully and control your intake accordingly. (Italics his.)

Fish: All fish, including canned salmon, tuna; any kind of seafood, including oil-packed and smoked, except oysters, clams, mussels, scallops, and pickled fish. (Italics his.)

Eggs: Boiled, fried, scrambled, poached, omelet--any style and with no limitations,

Salads: Two small green salads a day (each less than one cupful, loosely packed) made only of leafy greens, celery, or cucumbers and radishes. Dressings with vinegar, oil, salt, dry spices, herbs, grated cheese, or anchovies. Or else a sour pickle in place of a salad. Plus . . . green olives.

(Butter and Mayonnaise) Fats: Butter, margarine, oils, shortening, lard, mayonnaise. (Fats have no carbohydrates.)

Juice: Juice of one lemon or lime.

Cheese: Four ounces a day of any hard, aged cheese. No cream cheese or cheese spreads.

Heavy Cream: Four teaspoons a day. (Cream has less carbohydrate than milk, so don't use milk.)

The Diet Revolution Vegetables: Asparagus, avocado, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, beet greens, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, chard, Chinese cabbage, eggplant, kale, kohlrabi, mushrooms, okra, onions, peppers, pumpkin, rhubarb, sauerkraut, snow pea pods, spinach, string beans, summer squash, tomatoes, turnips, water chestnuts, wax beans, zucchini squash.

The Diet Revolution Salad Material: Celery, chicory, Chinese cabbage, chives, cucumber, endive, escarole, fennel, lettuce, olives (green or black), onions, pickles (sour or dill), parsley, peppers, radishes, scallions, watercress.

The Diet Revolution No-No's. (This is not a complete list, by any means.) For you they're poison--don't forget it. Bananas, beans (except green or wax), bread, cake, candy, cashews, cereal, chewing gum, cookies, corn, cornstarch, crackers, dates, figs, flour, dried fruit, honey, ice cream, jam, catsup, macaroni, milk, pancakes, peas, sweet pickles, potatoes (white and sweet), raisins, sweet relish, rice, spaghetti, sugar, syrup, yams, sweetened yogurt.

NO "MISTAKES." Sometimes, a single stick of chewing gum or putting milk in your coffee could put you right back to Level One--by upsetting the new chemical balance in your body. Yes, even that much carbohydrate over your tolerance level can turn off your fat-mobilizing hormone. Then you'll need at least two no-carbohydrate days to get it circulating again so that you're unhungry, feeling high, and burning off fat again.

Hi! I'm a new member here but have been doing Atkins NANY for two years and stalled for 17 months now. Still want/need to take off 30-35 lbs. Long story short: I don't cheat ever. No major loss for ages; no gains either. So I can maintain at the 35-40 net carbs I was at, I think.

But dropping back to Induction for 5-6 weeks recently did nothing to break the stall. I'm 62, a veteran yo-yo dieter for 25-30 years sadly. I have known hormonal imbalances being addressed with BHRT implant at present. I also take a beta blocker BP med and likely have thyroid issues and adrenal burn out from chronic stress last few years. Cortisol which was OFF the charts is now in normal ranges. Glucose is good and lipid panels are good. Most stress factors are somewhat reduced now, thank goodness. But still no break in my stall.

So as my last ditch effort before I shell out big bucks to see an endocrinologist for major testing/diagnostics, I started Atkins '72 two days ago. So I'll jump in on your challenge here. I was surprised I had no hunger/cravings dropping back to 20 TOTAL carbs (as opposed to net). I can't find my old book, so I really appreciated finding Linda Sue's posting of the plan here today. It is also basically the Duke University LC Support Group plan Gary Taubes outlines in the appendix of Why We Get Fat, which I have just read and was using to get me started on the 1972 regimen.

I'm down 1# today, so I'm encouraged. It sure did work for me some 15 years ago. I've always felt the "fiber deduction" was a cheat really. Kinda like a get-out-of-jail-free-card" that just didn't help me one bit. But with all my health issues, who knows what was my staller(s). I've ditched coffee and tea, because I just don't liket them without sweetener and cream, and have also eliminated sweeteners for awhile. Eliminated virtually all cheese and dairy, too. And don't feel too deprived for having done so........yet, anyway.

Really hoping this works for me (and all of us). I'd really like to think it was just some food along the Atkins OWL ladder was a problem for me and I just couldn't see what because it wasn't making me actually gain. Time will tell I suppose.

Well, I'm down to 172 today, so that's 2# lost since I started Atkins 1972 version a week ago. I'm taking this as a good sign. If this stall is FINALLY broken, I'll be soooooooo happy.

Most days, only 20 TOTAL(not net) carbs a day has been pretty easy for me. But I almost blew it yesterday. I was experimenting in the kitchen making an English muffin and with my tasting all 3 versions, wiped out all my carbs for the entire day. It has been so long since I baked anything, I forgot how fast almond flour will do that. So for lunch, I had leftover sirloin with herb butter; for dinner I had baked chicken slathered in butter. No veggies. Not only did I manage to keep my protein to 128 grams (28 more than I try to keep it at), but I kept my carbs to 20.6.

Odd thing I noticed was I wasn't hungry all day and didn't eat a single snack the entire day. Wonder why?

I went on vacation and gained 3 lbs so I'm definitely doing another week of 72 Atkins! It will straighten me out!

I got my book, but I don't read diet books on vacation! So I will start rereading it this week.

There are many available on Amazon!

Thanks Melinda and KAS. May it prove to be a "trend" and not a water bounce.

That 3# will come off Julia. Probably water weight gain from sodium in the food while eating out. Give it 3 days of lots of heavy water chugging and that'll be gone!
