I'm not experiencing a lack of variety so much as experiencing a learning curve of recognizing what I can & can't eat. I've made mistakes in the past week and went over 20g carbs on some days. I'm also trying to figure out possibilities for foods that are on the Induction list that didn't use to be included in my everyday diet. What helped was checking out lowcarb recipe websites (Atkins website was very helpful, as was the recipes section in this forum), the recipes in the Atkins book, and suggestions from others. That gave me ideas on what to make for dinner, or possible substitutes for high carb foods I used to eat.
If your old eating habits were like mine, you habitually consumed very few high protein/high fat foods--most of what you ate was high carb. Now that those are off limits, you think you're limited to the tiny number of high protein/high fat foods you are used to. Try new things & get creative!
