Atkins Induction Day Three Review

My third day of being officially in "knowledgeable" (have read Dr. Atkins book) induction.

I stayed at the ranch on Tuesday evening, so my morning started off with more chores than when I stay in town.


Breakfast:
2 cups of coffee w/ 3 T cream and 2 splenda total
1 oz beef jerky ( I was supposed to grab something out but just ate the last of the jerky in my desk)

Lunch:
Double beef patties with Jack cheese, mushrooms
Onion rings with the crusts peeled off!  (my hubby wanted to split o.r. so I obliged)
Diet soda
Double beef patty at Pops in Arcadia Oklahoma YUMMM!
Shared onion rings with hubby and just ate the onions.


Snack:
Chocolate decaf tea
4 radishes
1 oz braunshweiger
1/2 c whey protein ice cream

Dinner:
3 oz turkey burger

Dessert:
2 T cream over ice
1 T s.f. chocolate torani syrup (this was yummy to sip, tasted like ice cream)

I weighed myself at the end of the day and have lost 3 lbs since Sunday.  I know that 2 lbs was water since my legs and feet were swollen from flying back from Hawaii.  There was a lot to drink on that trip and very little of it was water!

Folks on a low calorie and low fat diet would have failed miserably with this menu.  Good thing I don't believe in that.  It is so easy to stay in this plan.  I'm never hungry or thinking about my next meal.

Our legs were pretty swollen also. I've dropped about 3 lbs. I've been hungry though.

I knew that I dropped 2 lbs of water weight immediately. My legs and ankles were very swollen when I got off the plane.
