Have you read the Atkins book? What plan are you following cause not many include bread for this reason..

I strongly suspect that the Ezekiel bread is what causes your troubles because it is not low-carb at all, although I also think that adding a lot more fat will probably help.

The broth is good advice. Also, keep something fatty on hand for snacks until you get the hang of your new blood sugar levels. Nuts are usually a good go-to once you're past induction.

I just read in my Atkins book you can avoid that buy drinking beef or chicken broth, it has sodium and helps keep your electrolytes in balance and helps with fatigue.

I often go to many hours without eating sometimes it's work other times not hungry, try to munch on something, even if it's just a little.

Hi, I'm new at this eating protein and more veggies and staying away from grains other than Ezekial bread..

Last week I did fine. This week, however, is a different story. One day, I barely ate anything b/c I just wasn't hungry. Of course, the next day I was eating all day!

This afternoon, I wasn't hungry but noticed how tired I was getting. Got too tired, cranky and realized I probably needed to eat something. I was just starting to cook dinner. Had to stop and EAT. Ate some salad, that I just made and found some canned tuna. Almost too exhausted to eat. Then, I went to bed for a while. This is NOT good.

So, do I need to plan to eat every 2 hrs?
Do I need to fill up on more protein?

Help!!!!
