Why Can't I Have Coffee, Dr. Atkins? :(

I mentioned in my previous post that South Beach hasn't really been working for me. Despite that, I've been trying to cook mostly low carb since I bought those new cookbooks (they've been excellent so far). The food is delicious and my hubby seems happy that I'm cooking a lot more. This is really the reason why I haven't gone back to Jenny, which has been proven to work. I've mostly been maintaining though, and haven't really been taking dieting seriously.

I started reading up on Atkins this week, because I feel I need a more carb-controlled lifestyle as opposed to going on South Beach Phase 2 and bingeing on all the 'good carbs' I want. So far it seems reasonable, although I am still a little scared to have full-fat everything. But it has worked for a lot of people, so I'm willing to try it before I go back to paying a ridiculous amount of money for tiny portions of okay food. The only real problem I have with it is the part about giving up caffeine. Seriously. I can't. Sorry Dr. Atkins.

I've been pretty strict about the diet this week, although I've really only lost a pound so far. It seems like it's going to be one of those weeks. I'm not going to give up though. I'm going to start my real induction phase next week with the following menu:

Hopefully I don't get lazy and keep posting my results :).

Don't feel pressured to eat all the fat! Doing turkey bacon and chicken burgers on a regular basis and saving the real thing for treats will probably make you feel less guilty.

I think I'm actually more excited but guilty rather than pressured, but I think I'll try not to have too much fat anyway.

Have heard a lot about this diet.It is good to follow one to make sure you lose the unwanted fat and calories and lead yourself to a healthy route.
