I'm doing eggs/meat today. I wanted to do all eggs today but I have to go meet a friend of my mother's this afternoon which means that I'll be out for dinner and should probably have some meat. The restaurant has roast suckling pig so i'll get some of that and tell em to keep the salad. So, lunch will be one egg, snack one egg and then dinner, and no food after 7pm!

I have been eating around 10-15 carbs a day for almost a week after that 2 weeks and am now going back to the meat/eggs for just a few days to try to move on into Onederland.

I plan to use it when I need a boost, but I do agree that we need more veggies and to be honest I eat 3-4 cups of romaine lettuce in place of the eggs as I can hardly stomach eggs most days...I use the zero carb dressing on the lettuce and have it with some meat... I just make sure to stay at 5 carbs a day.

hi,I was just wondering about adding a small amount of the romaine lettuce to my diet as I really got constipated last week and had to take three different types of laxatives last week. when you started adding the romaine did you notice any difference in the weight lose? thanks,angela

Default just an observation...

I notice a common comment about this 'fast'...to paraphrase..."It breaks my stall, I lose weight fast, I have greater energy and feel great...but I don't think it's healthy" kind of reminds me of how the low-fat/low calorie diet believers view low-carb study results..."they lost weight and felt great, but not eating carbs MUST be unhealthy, so we don't recommend it" Are we too subscribing a bit to that view when we question the merits of this so-called fast? All we're really doing is the original Atkins... Re constipation, perhaps eating more fat and drinking more water will 'smooth' things out...
