Day 5 Atkins Induction

Thursday, July 25, 2013

Yesterday stats:
70.2% fat
8.1% carbs
21.7 protein

Does that sound about right? Calories a little on the high end. I was working on a website and found myself eating from frustration not hunger. When am I going to learn that I really need to go pull weeds or go for a walk or something not eat.

Feeling much much better. Scale is down 1 lb

I have been trying out new recipes from the boards and links from here. Found little cheesecake muffins that are so good with coffee and give me a little break from all the salt.


Cream Cheese, 16 oz
Splenda, 1/2 cup
Egg, fresh, whole, raw, 2 large
Butter, 2 tbsp
Organic Vanilla Extract, 1 tsp one with no sugar added

Nutritional Info

Fat: 15.8g
Carbohydrates: 2.8g
Protein: 3.9g

Soften cream cheese to room temp (or about 40 seconds in microwave.)Beat with mixer till smooth. Add other ingredients. Pour into 12 muffin pans lined with the papers. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

Serving Size: makes 12

And these flax muffins from

3 eggs
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup sugar free syrup, such as Da Vinci or Torani
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup flax meal
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon (the amount is correct)

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with a fork. With a fork or spoon, beat in the oil, syrup, water and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients, then stir into the egg mixture. Let stand 5 minutes. Spoon into 12 well-greased muffin cups without paper liners. Bake at 350 12-15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned and seem set to the touch. Remove from the tin at once to cooling rack. Store in the refrigerator.

Makes 12 muffins
Can be frozen

Per Serving: 130 Calories; 12g Fat; 3g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 3g Dietary Fiber; 1g Net Carb

These are both supposed to be good for induction. I hope they are!

    I agree with the keeping the hands busy. I have a friend who knits - I scrapbook if I need to keep my hands busy. I also keep weights near me when watching tv and just do upper body work while sitting on the exercise ball. I'm interested in following your routine. Will read more of your blog

Thanks for sharing

    I had a friend that started a needle work project to keep her hands busy while she adjusted to her new diet. She felt it was good to do something productive and positive. emoticon emoticon

    I don't know if they are acceptable for induction, sorry. But fake sugars really make my weight loss stall. I try to have no more than 1 packets of sweet and low a day in my lrg iced coffee. I have 2 day. Otherwise I want to add sweetener to everything! LOL! And then I just don't lose! It's like my crutch- I eat LC but too much sweetener. I'm finding a happy medium! emoticon
