Carry on, carbolators.
That's great--keep up the good work!

Right at the moment, FitDay does not track net carbs, just total carbs. I've been told that the PC version does, but I can't personally vouch for that fact. Net carb tracking may be one of the "new features" that are coming online at some time in the (possibly) near future.

Michael

Default new atkins dieter--any others here?

my name is patti. been dieting for a month and lost 6 lbs... think i should have done better as atkins usually helps it pour off! i lost about 10 lbs before the holidays and kept it off so it's a total of 16 lbs. Im at 182 right now so i cut myself off just before i topped off at 200 lbs...
I want to get down to 150 which is where i was most of my life and really worked for me pretty well but it's a struggle.
i discovered the delicious atkins snack bars and started eating 2 a night (at least) NOT GOOD!!!
I've got no self control once i get started!
if anyone else is working the atkins program i'd love to hear how you're doing.
have a great day everyone and good luck with your weight loss goals!

I just create a custom food and plug in what would be the net carb count.

That is what I do. I am in stage 3 of Atkins and eat about 50 grams of net carbs a day. It is not at all hard because I really do not want all that flour/sugar/starch. The diet has totally weaned me from such foods and I do not feel deprived by declining cakes/cookies/fries.

Just jot down all the info you have on the food, the click create food and enter the details. Then save it.

If you go on the Atkins website there is lots of help/advice/recipes. If you cannot find what you want you can ask on the forum.
