    OMG - I ate an apple !?!

    Hey

    So, it's week 3 now, and coming from Atkins, it was very odd, yet satisfying to have an apple after my steak and broccoli lunch (cooked in butter, olive oil, with cream, mushrooms and mustard!).

    I've cheated before, but reading the Primal Blueprint which arrived this weekend, and changing from the strict Atkins 'diet' to a Primal way of life has been welcome, and there is no guilt!

    Anyway, seems I'm not cheating!

    Oh, and jeans are looser today than 3 weeks ago....

    Can't wait to do more exercise now either!!

    PG!

    Glad to know you enjoyed your apple!

    So what are your goals, coming off Atkins?

    lol, ok, i'll bite.

    in the northern hemisphere, that apple was harvested at least 8-9 months ago. yuk.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    The apples I buy are imported from South America so I don't think that's necessarily true.

    Atkins is only low carb for the first 2 weeks
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I thought Atkins was VVLC for induction, then you added back carbs 'til you stopped losing weight. But heck, since CW recommends 60% of one's calories from carbs, I figure anyone who has the sense to pour piss out of a boot is probably considered low carb.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.
