Induction is a cleansing....you are going to crave the stuff that you are trying to purge from your body....this is a lifestyle change.
No matter how bad your craving is tell yourself "I am not going to eat it" if it is not on your list of acceptable foods it does not cross your lips....
That being said, after you get through the 2 week induction the cravings will be gone and you will be on your way to a good weight loss as well as feeling good.
in 2004 I started Atkins and dropped 100lbs and have kept it off, as long as I stay low carb my weight stays off.
Clean eating is the best way to go, I do eat the bars and have the shakes only in a pinch, I work 12 hour shifts and end up going way to many hours without eating if I don't have something fast and convenient.
Peanut butter is a no no until your induction phase. Plan ahead and have stuff you can have.
Ham roll ups, ham, cream cheese, green onion
grilled chicken for salads
bacon for salads
hamburgers, I grill a bunch and eat them all week.
www.genaw.com has tons of induction friendly meals to help you stay on track.
