Atkins Day One

Today, my first day on Atkins, went fine.

The food is good, but I'm definitely going through some carb withdrawals. I'm grumpy. I've had a low grade headache since the afternoon and I'm freakin' tired. I just fed the parrots and after I put them to bed, I'm going to sleep too. I saw that Amy posted that she's had a lack of energy on Atkins. I will definitely say that is the case here too. Maybe I'll feel more energetic in a few days after withdrawing from carbs...who knows?

I did discover that unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze is pretty good. I had a cup of coffee and a cup of tea with a splash of that stuff and I enjoyed both. One gram of carb per cup, and only 40 calories.

I am grumpy too. But my first day was okay! I found myself wanting to snack quite a bit and just ate a lot of cheese. Tomorrow I'll regret that! We can do it though!!

Hi there! Thanks for popping by my blog! I like South Beach and have never done Atkins, but I always look at South Beach like lower carb but the carbs I eat are the good ones like berries and apples etc. No super sweet fruits like bananas or watermelon. Good luck for a quick carb withdrawal. After that you'll notice a lot more energy.

Good luck on fighting those carb cravings. It was the hardest thing for me when I did Atkins. I LOVE almond breeze! Keep us updated!

I only went off sugar and carbs for 10 days and I gotta tell you I lacked energy. Perhaps it takes longer than 10 days to feel the energy come back. Now I am doing 40/30/30 and I feel much much better.
