Not feel good on Atkins?
I really don't believe people who say they are doing this diet and not feeling good. It's a healthy diet. The danger zone is that there is room for people to make really bad choices and eat foods that will "not make them feel good". I eat lean meat or fish and vegetables everyday, I eat a salad for lunch everyday. Bacon and Cheese and Eggs or an Atkins shake for breakfast every day. What is there not to feel good about? They've gotta be making bad choices and then blaming the diet for their bad choices. If you stick primarily to whole foods and take a multi vitamin, there is no reason you should be feeling bad on this diet unless something else is wrong with you and you should see a doctor.

Regular bowel movements are also important. That could cause you to not feel good. If you are not using the bathroom at least (bare minimum) once a day, you need to work on that.

Also, the people who say they did the diet before and didn't like it, and now they are back, I don't get them either. If you didn't like the diet the first time, why are you doing it again? There is more than one way to lose weight. Maybe this isn't your path.

Personally, even though I had a shaky week last week, because I didn't feel like cooking, I am loving my Atkins experience and I feel very good about it health wise.

Oh P.S, here's a good recipe for you... Approximately 7 Net Carbs

Hello, new here!
I've done Atkins before, but took a break from it over the holidays, and also while recovering from an illness. Now I'm planning a trip to FLA in 8 weeks, and I want to use this time to get in shape and get back on Atkins. I'd like to start tomorrow, but I still have a lot carby foods in the house...I either have to eat them or toss them. Either way, I've gotta get it together. I'm looking forward to being smaller and buying a new bathing suit! :)

I have a quick question...

Has it been anyone else's experience that using Splenda while on the Atkins pretty much stalls the weight loss? In fact, I feel like I'm gaining it back. Do you have any recommendations for sweetener other than Splenda?

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving - what do you make for dinner with all the family coming over?

Thanks everyone!

Someone HAS to know!
Hi! I think it was in this community where I saw these asian style "noodle" things that were low in carb, and I went to the website and ordered some, and they were good. Well now I want to find them again for a recipe I want to try, and I just can't remember what they're called. I looked through old entries in this community and another for like an hour with no luck.

They're sort of squishy, wet noodles that come in a plastic package...

Perhaps an asian word that starts with "N?"

I'm drawing a blank.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

I hope someone does!

coconut milk
I accidently posted this to aktins diet, which doesn't every seem to get any action. Just in case you didn't already gwet this.

2 ideas for coconut milk
use it for coffee cream
make a curry veggie dip by adding curry paste to coconut milk, serve with raw veggies

Coconut milk has 2 grams of carbs per ounce. I know it is carbier than cow cream, but I am eating paleo right now as an experiement. So far so good.

coconut milk
I have been messing around with coconut milk, as a replacement for cream. I have never gone off dairy before, and thought I would try it. Right now, I am eating paleo, with the occasional peanut thrown in. Here are two ideas I had for coconut milk. One, you can use it to cream your coffee, and two, you can make a curry dip for veggies. All I added was curry paste, but you could get more sophisticated than that. Coconut is a super food, full of lauric acid, which fights bacteria in your gut, and rev.'s your metabolism. Every ounce has 2 grams of carb.'s, so it isn't a freebie, but I think it's health benefits make it worth using the grams on.

Government Advises Eating Whole Grains
Monday, March 28, 2005

Go ahead, have a piece of bread. Have three. Make it whole-grain, and you'll be following government advice for eating right.

Three servings of whole grains each day will reduce your risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes (search). It doesn't have to be bread. Brown or wild rice, oatmeal, cold cereal flakes, popcorn — without the salt and butter — and even trail mix will do.

Of all the new advice in the government's new dietary guidelines, eating enough whole grains may prove the easiest.

But if eating whole grains is so easy, then why aren't people doing it now? Most Americans are eating one serving or less each day, according to the Agriculture Department.

One reason may be that a little sleuthing is needed to figure out which foods have whole grains.

Just because a bread slice is dark, or a cracker looks grainy, doesn't mean the whole grain is there. They could be darkened by molasses or other coloring.

You need to look on the ingredient list to make sure you've got whole grains. The words "whole" or "whole grain" should come before the grain ingredient. And that should be the very first thing listed.
