That sounds great.

My plan for today is:
Breakfast was just coffee with HWC and stevia
Lunch, a plain chicken thigh
dinner:steak, salad with a vinaigrette dressing, some other veggie
snack: pickles and olives

I am also headed to the store for supplies.

Great!

Looks like you did well today!

Here is what I ended up eating:
Bulletproof coffee
Steak with warm chive and onion cream cheese (this tasted really good together!)
Atkins Coconut Bar
Bacon with a little mayo
Atkins Chocolate Peanuts
Steak

I did get 10,000+ steps at work.

I didn't make it to the store but will go tomorrow. I am off the next 2 days.
The steak was a splurge. Tomorrow I will be buying eggs, chicken, ground beef, greens and veggies.

Have you tried the Atkins rolls? I bought some cream of tartar and will make some tomorrow.

I may not do this by the book for the first few days. I still have food from when I started last week that is high fat/low carb and don't want to just throw it out. I will probably cut out the Atkins snacks, too. I tend to binge on them. I ate FOUR of them yesterday! I will be ready to do this by the book in a few days.

A question. I have no idea where my 1972 book. Do you think I can get by with the info on here?

Wendy, Ava Cado, and Kristina are you still doing this? I am reading and learning from your older posts. Hope to see you all posting.

Looks like Ava Cado is in Disney. Have fun!

Anyone want to get this board chattering again? I am going to start posting here, if its just me thats okay I had great success with Atkins 72 in 2011/12... I lost 30 pounds pretty fast and kept it steady for a year to walk down the isle. Then I gain it back, then I lost it again doing Stillmans and Medi. I need to get back to a low carb routine...I enjoy Atkins 72, nothing to over think. Today I stocked up at the grocery store, and will weigh in tomorrow am. Eggs, a rottisrie chicken, some frozen turkey burgers, unsweetened iced tea, smoked salmon.

Yes I am doing A72 as well. I have no idea how much I weigh as my scale got old and useless so I threw it away and have no desire to replace it.

I do eat one thing that was not on the list of foods and that's shirataki noodles. But not that often.

Today I've had a grilled burger with a fried egg on top. For lunch I had some creamed cabbage with bacon and chicken.

Hi Emerald - glad to have company! I got caught up with work this morning (I work from home) and then I ate breakfast, and forgot i wanted to weigh myself before eating anything - so I am just going to weigh in tomorrow. Might be a blessing that your scale isn't working! Just go by how clothes fit - its probably less torture

Today I had smoked salmon and black coffee for breakfast. For lunch I had home made soup...chicken, dill, low sodium broth (pretty basic). For dinner I might make tuna salad. I had a diet coke mid-day.

The only thing I keep on hand thats not part of the original 72 plan are the atkins shakes. I don't drink them often (like MAYBE one a week), but in a pinch when I am low on groceries or in a hurry I feel like its better than a total cheat food.

Hello, Junebug and Emerald!
So glad you guys are here. I am re-starting Atkins 72 today (fell off the wagon over the holidays.)

Good luck in 2017. We can do this!

I'd love to join you all. I've been on '72 since Tuesday the third. DH is joining me. Last week we were pretty strict induction. This week we plan to add a little broccoli, some salad tomatoes and green onions. I know, we live on the edge, huh? I lost 4# the first 5 days and DH lost 3.9#.

I also practice Intuitive Eating (IE). I usually only have coffee with cream in the morning and than have my first snack around 11 or 12. Never thought I could do that. I just started trying to put as many hours between last meal and first, and not eating until I was really hungry and it just happened.

Right now we're eating a lot of meat salads (meat, mayo and a little pickle, celery or radish), meat and salad for dinner and in between snacks are occasional cheese sticks, pork skins, olives, egg salad or leftover meat.
