Thanks for answering in detail. Don’t stop eating all the blueberries. They’re supposed to be good for you. :)
When doing the Atkins diet Induction Phase, the goal is to get the body to start burning fat instead of glucose. Thus you have to cut carbohydrates almost completely out of your diet. No more that 20 grams per day. I will go back to blueberries when that phase is over. At the time my husband died I had crept up to around 165 pounds. In a year I was down to 155. Then I discovered Atkins and dropped to 128 in less than 3 months. Gradually, my weight has crept back up to 150 thanks to a lot of government induced stress, so I will do Atkins for a while to move it back down quickly. Then I will go back to the blueberries, cherries, grapes, oranges, and whole grain rice, wheat, barley, oatmeal that I have to temporarily eliminate. This time I will try to do a better job of avoiding cake, cookies, chocolate and ice cream.
