I love eggs and bacon...and I'm just like BirthWarrior in that I normally do not eat sugary snacks at all. I only used to have sugar in my morning coffee...but now that I'm on Atkins it's like all I think about is ice cream, candy, chocolate bars, syrup...etc...lol, so funny...

I love steak and shrimp...but don't eat a lot of eggs, as I have to choke them down most days. (The texture just gets me!)
I find it strange that while I usually didn't crave OR EAT much sweets before Atkins, but now I crave ice cream, fudge, and other desserts like mad. I suspect it's more because I have lots of problems with yeast overgrowth (systemic emoticon ), and it's trying to get fed?

You know...
you can get SOME of the flavor you crave by eating potato skins (loaded of course) when you've lost some more weight and are more familiar with your body's responses to just how many carbs you can get away with...

I miss sugar. In any form. Once I lose all the weight, and am on maintenance, I will see about sweeet potatoes. And a family holiday dessert...

The best thing? Hmmm... I can't decide whether I should say "eggs" -- because they are SO VERY versatile, or if I should say "fried pork skins" because I love them and I can EAT them on low-carb diets, and because actually, they are pretty versatile too...

Mmm~mmm! To enjoy steak & lobster! What potatoes? Honestly, once you are on Atkins for a couple of weeks~ not even that long for some~ the carb cravings disappear because you'll be satisfied with your meals.

Favorites are sirloin steak, salmon, most any seafood, bacon, eggs, sharp cheddar cheese and real dressing on my salads of baby spinach and lettuces with vine ripe tomatoes and cucumbers YUM! ;)

I was thinking this AM as I was driving home about the really great things about Atkins and things that are not so great. My worst things about Atkins is that I love potatoes, they have long been my favorite thing. The best though steak and lobster are my favorite. So how about for the rest of you??
