Atkins and Thanksgiving

Posted on

 

First I want to say that Thanksgiving is a time that we give God thanks for all that He does in our lives. It should be a time of fellowship with one another and honoring God for His faithfulness to us.

Also I am on Atkins so that means a lot of stuff I will not be able to have unless I go off the diet for one day. I really don’t want to do that so I am looking for recipes that I can have while on induction.

First I have found a low carb pie crust recipe and I am going to try it out before thanksgiving with my friend Darin A. and we found a sugar free pumpkin pie recipe to go in the crust.

Next we need to look at califlower potatoes and see if we can have a good mashed potatoes substitute.

And I think we found a good stuffing recipe as well so we will see how it all comes out and I will post recipes and pictures here for all to see.

Atkins continues

I have been on Atkins for 15 weeks now and I have lost 22 lbs so far. I have stalled out for the last month because of slipping off the plan but I am back on track this week. So far it has been a good re-start (not that I had stopped doing Atkins, I just had a few days here and there were I slipped for one or two meals).

The induction phase has been good but I have had some issues with cravings for sugar or baked goods. I think it is because I have been having caffeine when I should be having decaffeinated coffee and or teas. So this week no caffeine for me.

My friends who are doing this with me are having good success as well, 1 of them has lost 45 pounds in the same time period. That is awesome.

I have set a short-term goal to be under 200 lbs by Thanksgiving. I will have to add more exercise to reach that goal.

Say a prayer for me and thanks for reading.
