    Atkins Dinner [Picture]

    After finish induction I decided to make a low carb cauliflower pizza as a cheat day. You are supposed to bake the crust for fifteen minutes then add the toppings and finish baking. Unfortunately the crust stuck to the pizza pan so it was a no-go. My whole house smells like a pizzeria. The crust did taste pretty darn good. Luckily I had a recipe for carb free fried chicken which turned out FANTASTIC!

    Anyone else on the Atkins diet or a similar low carb diet?

    Just coat the chicken with a mixture of equal parts pork rind and shredded Parmesan and fry. Taste great.

    Really think your not going to see the results you are looking for long term on Atkins

    But each to their own

    Try almond flour on your chicken with whatever spices you want....it's good too

    What do you mean? I don't expect to lose a ton of weight every week forever. When I start OWL the weight loss will level off to a steady pace. I will be able to reincorporate fruits and nuts and even bread/milk eventually.

    Just an opinion, not looking for a debate, just believe the reason the Atkins diet failed (and I did it myself) is that it's not a long term choice for an eating plan. You are not just loosing weight, you are training yourself for how to eat the rest of your life.

    I think the south beach or paleo are much more long term approaches.

    I am only on week two so I will see how long I can last. So far it's really easy and I can still enjoy a lot of food that I'd normally eat when I'm not dieting. If I can't see myself sticking to it for a long time I'll just switch back to some other diet. I might even give paleo a try if this fails.

    I mostly eat a low-carb diet and have since I quit doing 15-18k miles a year. Now I ride about 5-6k miles and the low-carb diet really suits my lifestyle. I eat a lot of beans and rice, vegetables and fruits, and several varieties of fish, but I don't really care about weight loss, just good health.

    I agree that what you have listed can be a recipe for good health.. but what do you call low carb? The beans, rice, and fruits caught my attention as something that is limited on a low carb lifestyle, but you said you eat a lot of these.

    By your description, it seems closer to Paleo than low carb. Although I think there's a slow carb diet that includes beans and rice.. but I don't know much about that one.

    Beans are protein-rich. My parents went on a fairly extreme vegan diet seven years ago to combat genetic heart disease (it worked! they both reversed heart disease by changing nothing but diet). It excluded all processed foods (like white rice, bleached flour, etc) as well. Thankfully, I was already out of high school and only had to suffer through vegan meals in the summers I was home then, but I lost weight without trying and without being hungry all the time. Black beans and garbonzo beans/chic peas are full of protein and, when you're a vegan, for instance, foods like avacados, beans and nuts are how you get your protein since meats and cheeses are out.

    Fair warning: it's sad to look down at your plate at dinner and see nothing but broccoli, beans, and rice. But, it does keep you healthy and you will lose weight. Also, I hope you like mexican food. My parents don't do spicy, so most asian food is out. What can you make with rice, beans, and various vegetables? About 150 mexican dishes that all taste the same. A smoker is a game changer here. They bought a Big Green Egg and it has actually provided endless delight. Cauliflower pizza on the smoker gets an A+ in my book.

    Pro Tip: Buy Beano in bulk from Amazon and thank me later.

    I have been trying to do "plant-strong" myself tho of late I have been terrible at following it.

    A friend of mine works for Engine 2 (they have books on Amazon etc). She was dealing with HBP, Type 2 Diabetes and weighed over 400 with cholesterol thru the roof. She went plant strong and has reversed the diabetes, no longer needs HBP meds, lost over 200 lbs and her cholesterol is under 150.

    If you have access to Netflix (you can stream it free) or can find it to rent elsewhere but I recommend watching "Forks Over Knives". I found it enlightening.

    I am not promoting this just thought I would throw it out there if anyone might be interested in checking into eating plant strong and what benefits there are.

    I will re-iterate I have not fully done this but when I cook at home the meals I have been cooking are plant strong. Even my meat and potatoes husband has enjoyed the meals. I figure the health benefits even with doing it part time is helpful when you throw in my exercise thru cycling. BTW...had my cholesterol checked in May and was at 199....haven't been under 200 in forever.

    Most of the carbs that I do eat are unrefined, and I eat very little bread or grains at all and no pastas, as well as no confections or candy or pastries, and very little dairy other than whole milk, and very little root veggies. Even with fruits I usually stick to apples or melons. I do eat brown rice and beans because I only allow myself one serving of red meat/pork a week, and most of my protein intake is from seafood and the rice and beans. Balancing a low carb intake and also limiting red meat/pork intake makes keeping a "truely" low-carb diet difficult, but I eat a lot of fish, poultry, and selective veggies. Compared to the 10-15k calorie high carb diet that I ate when I was actively training and racing, what I eat now is very low carb.

    If you look at Primal, Paleo, Atkins (in it's originally form, not what it's become today), Forks Over Knives (which I believe the Engine 2 is based off of), Slow Carb (I'm probably missing some); they all have one thing in common. At the core of the diet eliminate highly processed foods and vegetable based oils. Granted there are variations of all of these and they won't illustrate my observations.

    With all of these if you are really embracing the true intent of the way of eating, you're left with real, whole foods that haven't been messed around with by people.

    Some eliminate certain food types, or focus on others.. but I believe the key to all of their successes is the whole food aspect. Which way of eating (I don't like the word diet, it makes it sound temporary) works for you determines your preferences and your biology.

    Also when compared to the standard American diet (SAD), most people would classify that as low carb.. I guess it all just depends on your reference point.

    Neil. Not sure anyone answere.

    Take a head of cauliflower. Cut into small pieces. Cook in chicken stock for about 25 minutes. Put in enough stock in the beginning so it's only a little left in the pan when the cauliflower is done. Take a mixer and put on high and mix up,the cauliflower to a mashed potatoe consistency. I use garlic, butter, pepper and a bit of oregano in mine, but spice,them as you see fit.

    Thanks. I was too busy chasing people from the Clyde Forum to notice no one answered. It looks like a good recipe.

    Not a clyde, but I really enjoyed the effects when I tried Atkins in college. Some weight came off, but the mental clarity from leaving the sugar rush/crash thing behind was amazing. At least from the Atkins books I've read, it's presented as a long-term diet where vegetables are promoted and a small amount of carbs are allowed. The hardest part for me and most people is that we love carbs so much.
