Just starting...HATE vegetables
I don’t have any problem sticking to 20 carbs but the problem I’m having is I hate vegetables. They say you have to have 15g of the 20g of vegetables. Is this even going to work if I don’t eat many veggies! I can eat cucumbers, peppers, radishes tomato’s and carrots and green beans. I did test and I am spilling ketones. I’ve been using the Atkins shake (1 a day as a meal replacement) eggs, bacon, chicken breasts, boneless pork and homemade breakfast sausage from ground pork. I have about 1-2 ounce of cheese for a snack. I’ve been on this since Thursday and don’t feel particularly hungry but I have eaten the Atkins snack bars which I know is forbidden in the first two weeks but honestly I was eating 30-50 carbs a piece of everything I ate so a HUGE amount. No wonder I never lost weight. Since I want to adapt to no more than 40 carbs a day does all this sound ok or am I setting myself up for failure. I’d rather cheat a bit and have 2-3 carbs of treats than end up giving up. Also, what’s the maximum caleries you should have? I know you don’t count caleries but I don’t want to be eatting 2000 caleries a day. Advice welcome.
