I like to mix a package of cream cheese with a package of sugar free jello and some pecans. This really satisfies my sweet tooth

Wow... great responses so far! Thank you ladies! Rani, I had sent you an e-mail from a link on anothr site, never realizing you were one of my FC neighbors! Small world, huh? I was looking into joining your chat but don't have AOL.


I have to learn about protein powders, and baking substitutes, and ways to convert recipes to LC equivilents. It seems everything I'm accustomed to is just not apropriate anymore.

I'm getting bored with the induction phase, and hungrier...
It's only been 9 days .... not soon enough to go off of it. But I'm craving alternatives that are not so heavy or salty or chewy... I'm looking for lighter fresher crispier, and I can't find it.....

I suppose I need to go out an buy a few cook boks and a better carb counter, and do some more agressive menu planning.

Hey Shawn, Post some recipies over here too! LOL!!!

It is indeed, a small world!

>>I wrote an article on that very topic, entitled "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Protein Powders, But Were Afraid to Ask. You can't make exact measure-for-measure conversions, it doesn't work that way.
But read this: http://stores.yahoo.com/carbsmart/ranipp.html

Patience, little grasshopper, you have 5 days of Induction left. And now tell me why you are HUNGRY? For goodness sakes, eat MORE. You want light/fresh/crispy? Have a nice (BIG) grilled chicken caesar salad and some sugar-free jello for dessert.

>>I suppose I need to go out an buy a few cook boks and a better carb counter, and do some more agressive menu planning.

Best carbcounter book is Corinne T. Netzer's Complete Book of Food Counts. I got mine on eBay for $2 and I've seen it on half.com for cheap, too. It's excellent. There are a number of LC cookbooks, but so many websites that are free.

Atkins

Hello everyone,
I have recently started a new way of eating and taking care of my health. I am, in other words, on a diet. Let's face it, I want to lose weight so I bought a book written by DrAtkins. I could really use someone to talk to. Is anyone out there on this diet and can tell me about thier story. I could really use some help right about now. Thanks
Ciao for now,
Irene

I need some help

Hi all,
I need to talk with someone who is on the Atkins diet. I read all the negative letters on this site about the diet but I am in the middle of this and just want some positive talk. If there is anyone out there in the same situation I am in I would appreciate just the talk. Maybe we can even go onto the chat forum.
Thanks in advance,
Ciao for now,
Irene

I have been on the Atkins diet since September 1, 2003.
I have lost 30 pounds and about 14 inches. My husband went on it with me and he has lost 40 pounds. I never would have been able to do it if he had not done it too.

It is the easiest diet I have ever been on and Iv'e been on a lot of them.

At first we stuck to it real strict but after about a month we started adding more carbs. We stay away from sugar and pasta
and only eat low carb bread. Which I don't eat much of. Maybe every couple of weeks I have a sandwich. We eat alot of grilled chicken salad, taco salad and chili soup. If we have meat we eat green beans with it.

My husband is lactose intolerant so it limits the diet some.
I love cheese but find that I don't lose when I eat It.

We did find some low carb ice cream bars because my husband loves desert. Blue Bunny was the first one we tried they are good, but Klondike now has a low carb bar that is really good.
Neither of these bothered his lactose problem.

We drink caffiene free iced tea and lots of water.

We got the splenda sugar but I like the sweet n low better.

I also fond a low carb pizza recipe that is really good. The crust is made out of zucchini.

reeniedoll..if you did a google search on Atkins support groups.. I'd bet you'd find a lot of interactive support...


I was doing the diet last year, but an attack of colitis put an end to it.

I'm now on a modified-carb, moderate -fiber, low-fat diet that I am living with nicely...

I know enough about health and nutrition to take charge of my life, and the weight is taking care of itself ...SLOWLY... but surely

I'm starting Atkins again

I lost two dress sizes before but the day I moved across country I just threw it all out the window cause of all the different restaurants I was passing by. I then continued to give it up for 7 months but not any more, I refuse to quit this time. I did screw up 3 times but overall I've done well since Jan. 7th. So, I can't wait to continue...
