Well, maybe it did. And maybe the flying spaghetti monster will deign
to grant us all a few more days of bliss before He or She destroys
this sinning hunk of rock.

Frankly, if you are "getting tired of what" in a way that just means
that you end up eating less without too much horrific discomfort, I'd
strongly suggest that you just go with the flow and take full
advantage of that for now.

Not a bunch of BS as to "net" carbs -- just good food that is really
low carb for the most part. I've made several of the casserole type
dishes and they are great tasting and quite filling.

Now that's truly scintillating prose, when you consider it's coming from an
obese idiot.

Good job, fatboy.

Psst! another rerun, you are repeating again. Did you get to the end of your
one-liners and have to start over ?

- Bread is not low carb
- Pancakes are not low carb.
- Cookies are not low carb, fatboy.
- Ice cream is how you got fat in the first place.
- Grits are not low carb.
- Have you ever heard of proper punctuation?
- Common sense dictates that you're an idiot.
- Learn how to quote properly, idiot.
- obesity = idiocy

And who can forget (my personal favorite)
- Your inane ramblings are more nonsensical than ever.

"There is actually nothing wrong with the advice that was given. Eating

good tasting or exciting foods all the time may cause a person to over
eat.
I doubt that the average person would gain a lot of weight if they ate
boring, repetitive, bland foods.
Many people complain that low carb menus are boring. IMO, they are
overlooking a great tool to help them control their weight. "


There is nothing wrong with it except that it doesn't work. If you
limit yourself to food that doesn't taste good, then most people simply
conclude the diet doesn't work and go back to their old ways. The
beauty of LC is that you CAN eat good, very tasty and nutritious food.
And that is one of the reasons it works.

It doesn't work because people are always trying to push the limits.

Or, people are trying to imitate their old carby favorites and find the
taste still isn't good enough.

There are many factors for why people eat too much. Very tasty, is one of
them.

I don't know how "good" my ideas are :) but here are some of the things I
pack in my husband's lunches (he doesn't have access to a microwave):
string cheese
hard-boiled eggs
meat sticks
wraps (in romaine leaves or low carb tortillas)
peanuts
cottage cheese
SF jello with whipped cream (unsweetened of course)
tinned fish (sardines, herring, etc.)
cole slaw (homemade)
cookies (homemade, I have a couple of recipes I use)

There are other things but I can't think of them right at the moment.
Whereas I keep my daily net carbs in the 20-25g range, he isn't in it for
the weight loss, and he eats somewhere around 50-75g most days. That gives
me more flexibility, and I pack 3-4 different "snacks" together every day to
prevent boredom. Still, it would be nice if he had a microwave...

"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure". Eating
while you're not hungry, and using the food to prevent
hunger in the first place, is that ounce of prevention.

Caveat - Easy to abuse and do a pound and a half of
prevention as your pound of cure.

You eat at Atkins induction levels on a permanent basis even though Atkins
himself advised against doing that? Why is that? Why don't you do what
Atkins advises and increase you carbs after induction?

Some folks believe that lower carbs equal higher loss. Doesn't
matter that evidence generally contradicts their belief, it's too
obvious to question.

But within the directions of the Atkins process is the answer.
You cut out Sherry's signature so I'll restore it:

In the chapter on Induction there's a list of qualifiers for staying
low. Not bored, still working, still have a lot to lose and then a
6 month time limit.

I have long insisted that "a lot to lose" means "still have 100+
pounds to lose". Check out Sherry's numbers. This week and
likely for another week or two she still has 100+ to lose and
so she still falls under the "a lot to lose" provision in the
directions.
Today it makes sense that she is still near Induction levels.

The day she hits 295 then in my opinion her 6 month timeout
begins, or she should move on to OWL simply because doing
so is the most likely path to the best loss.

Well, for one thing, I'm not following Atkins. :)

Just as an FYI - when I go above 30g/day there is no weight loss.

Thank you for your concern :).

I'm not one of them :). I went up earlier this summer, 5g at a time, when I
got to 40g/day I stopped losing. And didn't start again for over 2 months.
So I did a couple of things. I went back down to 30 and I raised my fat
levels. That got me losing again. Now I lose 1-2 lbs/week most weeks.
There are other variables (I won't see any loss, for example, this month due
to choices I'm making) but that's how it's working best for me now.

That's the plan :). When I get down to my last 100 lbs, I figured I'd work
my way back up, 5g/week at a time again, and keep my fat levels higher. I'm
in no hurry to lose, the health benefits are great for me too. Previously I
was eating a lot of fiber (a habit I'd gotten into on the advice of my
cardiologist several years ago) and that actually might have been part of
the problem?

I wish that were true. If I get sick of eating something, I won't eat it and
eat something else. that's why I'm looking for other lunch ideas.

I don't find low carb boring, actually it can be the opposite if you use
different spices and such but it is easy to fall into a repetative trap.
In the summer we grow the most delicious tomatoes. I look forward to them
every year. I eat them with every meal, prepared a million different ways.
However by the end of the season, if I see one more tomato, I will throw up.
A few months later I forget all about it and start to look forward to tomato
season.

Why is it that the best ideas are always the simplest and we tend to over
look them????
Thanks!
