I am an older retired lady. Dr wants me to lose weight and do more exercise. I have been on Atkins since March 29,2013 and I have lost 50 pounds. It has been good to me and I feel a lot better. I have three grown kids and 4 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. I love to golf and take the g kids to Silver Dollar City. This summer has been fun. My husband and I just celebrated our 50th in April of 2013. I reached my goal weight in October of 2013 and I have been successfully maintaining since then. I love my new look. It is crucial that I keep a close eye on what I consume so i stay here at FatSecret to manage my food intake and get positive reinforcement from other food aholics.

Bloated all the time
Atkins is a great plan if you give it a chance. After induction, the craving goes away, you just have to have the fortitude to stick it out, I have been a serious carb-o-holic all my life, I gave up bread and potatoes completely while I was losing. It was easier than trying to just eat a little. You can do this. If I can do it anyone can.

Soy flour
I purchased a bag of soy flour. I thought I could use it for breading chicken tenders. Is it useful for any other low carb recipes?

Happy Friday
Yes, it's Friday! My husband and I are off to Silver Dollar City for the day, they are having their Harvest Festival and a tribute to Cowboys. This is my favorite festival, the park is all decked in fall colors, mums galore, and everything cowboy. Lot's of walking, up hills and down so I don't have to worry about getting enough exercise. I am going to focus on what I am not going to eat today and continue with owl right on through the weekend and try to stay with in reach of 30 carbs.

Edit food intake
Click on that item you posted in your food diary and when the page goes to the nutritional information, look over to the right side of the page. It gives you the option to save or delete. Go ahead and delete it and then go back into your food diary and add the correct amount

Induction Breakfast sick of Eggs suggestion
I have found that Joseph's Flax,oat bran and Whole wheat Pita bread is good for a BLT. It is a good Atkins owl food with only 4 net carbs. I also like cottage and sliced tomatoes for breakfast.
