I find that if I get all of my carbs from fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds that I get about 50-100 a day, and haven't so far had any trouble losing weight.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.

I find I can't avoid fruits altogether.
Even with what my readings say.
They still are in the desirable range.
Moderation is good to strive for.

Welcome Frogman! emoticon I notice that I am anywhere from 50-100 carbs a day. I wonder if that is too much but I am losing and feeling good so I must be doing something right, right?

woubbie I was telling the truth my hubby really did think that. This weekend at Sams he pick up a bag of almonds and says can I have these. I said yes but only a serving or so a day. He look and said well handed me the bag. 1/4 cup was a serving and he said no but them back for I would eat alot more than that at one time if I ate any of them....I know its right there on the packages but you know I find that many people think that very thing about a lot of packaged foods. Heck I knew better I just wanted to eat it anyway so I acted like I did not lol...no need for me to lie.

I still have carb stuff all in my house to. I have twins that are 6 two teen boys one that is 17 and one that just turned 19 Sunday. They eat some of the good foods but they still have those high carb foods to.

This is the link to the Atkins website. even tho I dont fully do it the atkins way anymore I do still eat from the atkins food list/eat. I just count carbs different than they do.

Hi and welcome!

If you need support and encouragement you came to the right place!

Theresa, that cracked me up, about the serving size! But good for him! I'm glad that you're both on track together. My DH is very supportive and never makes a fuss about my eating differently from everyone, and he is verrrrry slowly swinging my way, but we still have a houseful of carbs because he can still eat them. At least for now.... His problem is not carbs, but alcohol, which is slowly but surely driving him to the same endpoint - his blood pressure has been high for years now, and his fasting sugar levels are beginning to go up. The terrible thing is that his Dad died of the complications of Type 2 at the age of 54. !!!! He was a real mess because he refused to control his drinking and eating. Sad, he was a great guy. But really, really stubborn.

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

Dont say HOPE. say I AM.

If my hubby can do it you can. He was a big bread eating sweet tea drinking person. He gave them both up totally. He dropped 35 pounds like it was nothing. He says he wants to lose 5 more so we will see. This is someone that never worried about what he are or looked at a package to see what was in it, heck he did not even know what a serving was he thought it was whatever was in the package lol but he really thought that

He don't count carbs now really he just don't eat foods that have them unless they are vegys. He don't eat package foods anymore because when he sees the carbs in them he drops them like they took a bite out of his hand or something, its really funny in a way.well that not totally true he has two Atkins bars a day, yes two he has done this since he started the first of April. He probly eats about 50 total carbs a day and like 30 of those are from the atkins bars. He says those are his sweet snacks and keep him from eating the wrong things. Hey it works for him.

Just remember to eat a lot of fat to keep you satisfied - that's what got me through it.

You'll do fine and keep in touch.

I started Induction with more carbs and whittled my way back to less than 20 after 2 weeks. I had carb flu and that made it rough. I was just happy I did not give up.

I have successfully eaten low carb for years only to have life stress in the last year really mess up my health. It is time to get back on the wagon! I wish you all well.

When successful, I do well on 75 grams of carbs per day as long as none of those are from grains or added sugars. I am thinking that a good, solid two week Induction would be just the thing to get me back on track.....here's hoping I can do it!

I lost a lot of weight and maintained it for years, then I got all stressed and busy and lost my way. Starting over from a much better place (way less to lose this time!) and making things better.
