I didn't do any 'specific' Induction (as in, I didn't follow exactly what Atkins said I could and couldn't eat, nor any other specific plan) apart from the fact that I stole what many of the inductions out there says to do and had 20g or under of carbs for the first 2 weeks. I don't know whci foods Atkins says you can or can't have, but I figured as long as you are adding those carbs to your total for the day, and keeping it under 20g, does it really matter? Unless there is some science behind the foods you can't eat. I also thought a lot of the foods he prohibits (like nuts) is because he knows how easy it is to get carried away on them!

Anyway, I think that sounds delicious. And if you can find something delicious that doesn't have tons of carbs, keep at it.

By Induction you mean Atkins, right?

Tomatoes were not allowed on the original Atkins plan during Induction. They have been allowed on Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution, which came out sometime in the 1980s, and are allowed on whatever it is that's at

The meat is probably ok.

The cheese is probably ok, but in limited quantities.

if memory serves me correctly tomatoes aren't allowed in the first 2 weeks of induction. there's 6 grams of carbs in 12 grape tomatoes. and no fibre.
as far as the meat, i don't know that brand, you would have to read the package. some deli meats have sugar and such that adds carbs.
but, depending on how much of a stickler you are to staying under 20 g carbs, this sounds tasty.

I've been eating some of the Carving Board chicken or turkey meat, sandwiched in between two slices of Medium cheddar cheese (twice, like to "sandiwches" of meat and cheese) and a handful of grape tomatoes.
