Tuesday, Day 2 induction, menu and check in

Hey! It is day two and I’m hanging in! I managed not to get too sick this time (it stinks getting sick), and while I didn’t want much, I did eat a healthy bit of food! Just to give you a hint of how water retainy I am, I’m down 6 pounds. From yesterday! That is the magic of the diuretic effect of Atkins.

I don’t count carbs or calories. I am going to tracking food choices through the food pyramid for now.

Why not? We already know that low-carb is a very healthy lifestyle!

Breakfast: Nothing. Induction flu. Felt uber-barfy
Lunch: 1/2 Wendy’s Baconator on Oopsies, 1 Caesar Side Salad
Dinner: Not feeling 100% so had a small garden salad w/ cheese, plum tomatoes, bacon bits,Vinegar and oil
Beverages: I drank water for most of the day, and 1 iced tea sweetened with Stevia

So, according to the food pyramid… (which we alllll know and lub, bwah)

3 meat exchanges, (1 burger, 2 bacon, egg from oopsies)
4 cheese/dairy (cream cheese from oopsie and cheese from baconator and salad)
3.5 veggie servings (1 cup of loosely packed lettuce is only 1 serving, + tomatoes)
2 fat servings (oil from salad, mayo from baconator, dressing from Caesar)

I try to eat when hungry and stop when full–and to be honest, who can eat much when your body is switching gears into induction?

    sweet! Glad to see you are working hard at it 😉 I’m kind of on a break (ala Friends) not really from reduced carb choices, but from trying to lose weight. I really enjoy what I am eating right now but really need to jump back into this head first and lose another 25 or so before the summer. I look forward to seeing some new recipes from ya!

    Hey! It is good to see you! I was wondering where you had gone!

    I took a break last year, but it was too soon. I should have stuck with it! I am not going to do that again. But you– you’re doing GREAT!

  3. Way to go!

    I lost a whole lot of weight 4 years ago (down to size 10!). I discovered I crept back on some of the weight (although not really moved in dress size) I want to lose a bit more weight (30 lbs or 1 full dress size, whichever comes first).

    Must get back on induction…must control portions..*sigh* At least it’s no longer carb season.
