WOE: Atkins 02' (Induction)
Start Date: 10/2/10
I restarted induction 2 1/2 weeks ago and so far a 4 lb loss. This week I started an exercise routine and my weight seems to have stopped and gone up a pound. My ketones are lower than usual, but still registering in small amounts. In the past 2 days I reduced my carb intake to under 15 grams. I am following the book and not eating anything off the lists, though I have on occasion had 1/2 to 1 ounce of almonds (plain) when i felt dizzy as suggested by Dr. Atkins. I also never eat more than 3 servings of cheese a day and sometimes don't eat any at all. I have been eating slim jims and pork rinds with cinnamon and stevia, counting the carbs of course. These are the only differences from my last successful round of Induction.

I did start Atkins before the holidays and failed to follow and messed on each holiday (Thanksgiving day, Christmas day, etc.). Then I had to be out of town for my daughter's surgery and I was 5 days off the diet, (no refrigeration) though I tried my hardest to keep carbs down when possible. Would all this back and forth mess with metabolism? Should I do the Fat Fast?

Sorry to just bust on in, its been a while since I have been here! Congrats to everyone on their weight loss and determination!
I have been back on program for 2 weeks and am sticking to it like glue. I am in the darkest shade of ketosis and have been walking 3-5 miles at least 4-4 times per week.
I am not eating nuts, but am having a bit of cheese. Other than that it is just steak and chicken.....chicken and steak!
Very few veggies.....I know, I know, but I just do not like veggies
Here is the problem. The first week, I lost 9 pounds and week two nothing........but its not just that I didn't lose.....I actually gained
I am not pre-period.
Any thoughts or insight is very appreciated.
Jen

WOE: Atkins Extended Induction
Start Date: January 1, 2009
same here

I lost 8ish lbs in the first two weeks, following things to the letter, and have now stalled. I have ten more pounds to go and while I know it slows down week three, four, and five, there is absolutely no movement at all and it's discouraging.

Is the fat fast the way to go here? What else can I do to ensure at least a pound of loss this week?

A stall was defined by Dr. Atkins as four consecutive weeks with no weight loss or loss of inches. Are you REALLY stalled?

Are you still on Induction or did you move to OWL?

If you moved to OWL, how long ago did you move and what foods did you add back?

If you want to post a complete menu, with quantities and net carbs for all foods, we can take a look. It's difficult to troubleshoot without a menu.

Definitely no!

The Fat Fast is for those people who are very metabolically resistant. Since you lost over 44% of the weight you needed to lose in the first two weeks, you're certainly not a Fat Fast candidate.

Quote:

Honestly... nothing. Nothing can "ensure" you will lose X lbs in Y weeks.

This is not a race. There can be weeks or even months without wight loss... and often there's nothing you can do about it.

This is not unusual when you start a new exercise program. It's not that you're not losing fat... but you are probably retaining water.

Also... make sure you take body measurements. Sometimes we lose inches without losing pounds.

The color on Ketostix is unimportant. The fact that they change color means that you're in ketosis.

And you could be in ketosis without changing the color of the sticks at all.

Not losing weight for one week is not a reason to lower your carb level. In fact, you might be missing important nutrients your metabolism needs by undereating vegetables.

As I wrote in my previous reply, there can be weeks and even months with no weight loss. It happens.

Quote:

Are you still dizzy after 2-1/2 weeks? That's not right!

How many calories are you consuming daily?

Are you eating every few hours? And do your meals have some fat, protein and veggie carbs?

Quote:
I have been eating slim jims
Junk.

Quote:
pork rinds
There are better sources of protein.

Plus, part of the protein converts to glucose... so consuming excess protein can actually interfere with weight loss.

Quote:

You should not compare your weight loss then with your weight loss now.

A "successful round of Induction" does not mean you will be successful on Atkins. And I don't know what "successful" means for you since Dr. Atkins told us that weight loss is not the only way to measure success at the end of our 14-day Induction.

Quote:
messed on each holiday (Thanksgiving day, Christmas day, etc.)
Did you have a plan? Did you have Atkins-friendly foods you could eat? Without a plan, you are likely to mess up... which is why planning is essential.

Quote:
Then I had to be out of town for my daughter's surgery
I hope your daughter is feeling better!

Quote:
Should I do the Fat Fast?
No.

A week without weight loss is not a reason to do the Fat Fast.

no

hey guys,
i decided to take your advice and just stick with the WOE, no fat fast or craziness. since last week, i have lost one more pound. while it would be sunshine and rainbows to lose more than a pound a week, as you said, this isn't a race so easy does it for me. this is the healthy way, esp since i'm within 10 lbs of my goal/healthy weight. thanks for all your encouragement

Hi everyone.. I see there haven't been any really recent posts in here.. but i just needed to get some things off my chest :/
went to the doc today and the scale there has me only down 2 pounds since i was there almost a month ago. i did just have lunch and all. but my scale here doesnt ever (even on up days) weigh me at my starting weight
And i would like to say that i have lost inches, but i just dont know if that is true since i just started measuring last tuesday!
I just cannot believe that i have been at this for 4 weeks and i am the same exactly as i was when i started!?! especially that i have been working out so much and so hard! i guess it could be new muscles and losing fat... but is it really posible that i be losing fat and gaining muscle at a rate that i would see almost NO change on the scale?? should i be doing something differently? i mean i am just mad and frustrated and i really wish i would have measured on the very first day so atleast i would KNOW if anything is happening!

Are you getting enough water in? That's sometimes the culprit. But your scale may not move, but you still be may losing inches... due to gaining muscle and losing fat. The best way to measure that (since you only checked your measurements a few days ago) is to try something you wore last month when you started that fit a bit tight. See if there has been any change in the clothes you wear. If you feel you're fitting better in them, then it's okay that the numbers haven't moved because you size has gotten smaller. Also, since you have little to lose, it may take longer. It seems as iff we're very close in Stats. So Good luck!

Thanks.. I will try on some things. i dont really look forward to it, cuz i been wearing pretty much my normal clothes this whole time. and i think i have noticed alittle difference. but i am worried that it may just be wishful thinking :/
i am trying to stay hopeful and stick to it. but its just not easy this time around. I hope to see some movement on the scale soon.
oh and you are right on with the water. i keep a gallon with me all day (at home) and i manage to drink about a half of one everyday. but in the last few days it has taken me about 3 days to drink one. maybe that is what is going on. i will make it a point to really get it in today and try to keep it up.. hopefully that will help

Did you get enough of the water in? I hope it helped. How's the scale looking? I'm down 1 pound since my last post, but I feel the weight loss is starting to taper off, since induction is over for me on Friday. I'm hoping to last till Sun (valentine's day) even though we're going out for dinner...Gonna force myself to go to the gym today.

I have been getting my water in. alot of times i have waited til later in the day but ended up getting it in by bed time. I am still not seeing any change in my inches and since this weekend i havent been back on the scale. I weighed on saturday and was about 1 down, but i hate to count it with the way things have been rollercoastering recently. I may be going to weigh in the morning but i was trying to make it til friday if posible. I feel pretty good today. like maybe.. just maybe i may be seeing some change lol. I am sticking with it and hoping i will see some change by the time i get on the scale again. also am trying intermittant fasting by not eating in the mornings and not eating too late in the evenings. just started that today as an experiment and hope to report that it works.

Thanks for checking in let me know how you do at the dinner. i know its hard to eat out and stick to plan. I hope i get taken out to eat for valentines day too
CONGRATS ON THE POUND!!!

Slow but sure

I lost 6 pounds in the first two weeks and then NOTHING for about 10 days and finally lost 1.5 pounds--total 7.5 pounds in the first 4 weeks. I am trying to stay right around 20-25 carbs daily but discovered that there were some hidden carbs in all the Splenda I was using, so I've switched to liquid sweetener (EZ-Sweetz) with 0 carbs. I was all upset that I wasn't losing more until I measured and discovered I'd lost 1.5 inches around my chest and 1 inch around my waist and hips. My goal for next month is 8 pounds.

Isn't it awesome when you find out that even when the scale wasn't moving, the inches were? I love that part because the scale can bum me out sometimes.

One thing I find is that I get very tired on Atkins and my excersize endurance gets hammered on. This concerns me and tempts me to add more carbs. I've heard a bit here and there about ******* diet... is there a place I can learn more about the plan and science behind that... ?
I am also on day 3. I have no Idea if im in ketosis. I still have some cravings but Im not starving all the time. So I guess we will see.Good luck to everyone!!

I just keep working the plan, don't eat when not hungry and watch how often you weigh yourself, It can be INCREDIBLY hard not too, but I have goal in mind and I am sticking with it. my clothes are looser and I needed a smaller lab coat at work...that works for me...

Rebky, I am on my 4th week. I felt very washed out for awhile and didn't think I could keep going on. On those days do not exert yourself too much. Build exercise into your habits...I haven't been to the Y since saturday, but I had sick children. I am going today, but I only work out on the Treadmill for 30 minutes.. The first day I was back on I BARELY made 10 minutes!

If you are really deidicated you will get there...we are al different,it WILL come off but you may have t oadjust for YOU here and there...I read other people's stories for inspiration, but not at fact for me...

you wanna laugh? my stupid motivation is my halloween costume..I want to go as Satine from Moulin ROuge...a Musical from 2001 starring Nicole Kidman..
It's what keeps me going...

I've been on Atkins since January 4th, and I've only lost 10 pounds. I have lost a few inches, but not much.

My ****** stats look like this (started using ****** on Feb. 4th:

Monthly Average

Calories
1,448

Total Fat: 51%

Carbs: 10%

Protein: 39%

Should any of my percentages be tweaked a bit? Even though I am seeing some results, I feel like I'm moving kind of slow Thanks!

Portions??
I've been on Atkins induction for 2 wks, and the scale has moved only 2 lbs. And I'm thinking that's water weight. I'm eating only 20 carbs a day, but enjoying all the low-card/no-carb foods on the induction food list.

I feel great on this food plan - my blood glucose levels haven't looked so good in 10 years. I'm not hungry very often, and I've noticed other positive changes in the way I feel.

But I want to lose weight, too! So - I think I need adjustment in the amount of food I'm eating. Are there any portion size recommendations out there??? Should I be counting calories as well as low-carbing? Help!

You might consider looking at the supplements you are taking. I've been taking cla and gla and have had great results. I'm only on week 8... have lose zero weight the last month... but have had huge results in changes in my belly. You can see the result for yourself if you look at my photo album. Ive taken photos every 30 days to keep me focused on my goal. I can't tell you how happy I am that I found out about these vitamins... (there is actualy a cla/gla group here on LC friends. Just look under the vitamin supplement link to see.

I am on week 5 and I just came off a week and a half stall. I realized that I've slowly added things that are not induction and I think one of them is the culprit. I've added:
*more artificial sweetener - I went from one diet soda to probably 3 a day
*sunflower seeds - I'm sure it wouldn't hurt me as bad if I didn't eat the whole tube in a sitting.
* fruit -I've had blueberries and strawberries mixed with HWC too often

Yesterday was the first day of cutting these things out and I felt like I was doing induction all over again. On the upside, I lost a pound!!

Kitkat - I can relate - I added almonds blue cheese and rum and diet coke... stopped that and the weight started to come off again... I find it interesting learning how our body reacts to different things... Just keep going... I was stalled for a month... but saw results in my clothes! That's where it really matters anyways IMO

babycricketgirl- It is interesting! It's like a frustrating game of weights and balances. Too bad there isn't a test that can determine all this stuff for us. I think I'm going to stick to induction until I am at my goal, then I will allow new things in my diet.

Kitkat... I think that is a good plan... I think that works for me too.... I do have a day here and there that I do more carbs... but for the most part... LC is the way to go... I think it helps me be successful as I deal with the mental mind issues that go along with being successful with weight loss... I've come to understand for myself it wil be a way of life... (kind of like being fat was... focusing on dieting everyday.... where thin people focus on exercising every day.) and the other thing I think thin people don't stress out about is going off plan... because they know if they are on plan most of the time... they can go off plan here and there... and still be in control and okay when the week ends... We need to train our minds to think like thin people.... not that thin people dont eat piggish at times.... ut have you ever been repulsed at the amount of food a thinn person eats?... Ever watch how an unconsious (sp) fat person eats? We just consume... dont even think about what we eat!!! I see this in my son... we have dinner and 30 minutes later.... he is asking... Mom... what did we have for dinner.... and I have to think about it... to recall... WHATS UP WITH THAT??? Do we forget what we eat,,,, so we eat more??? Any thoughts? Let's brainstorm here

It's so true! I've had a hard time with stopping myself from habit/boredom eating. I use to eat from the time I got home from work until I went to sleep. I would have a meal, 30 minutes later, dessert, 20 minutes later more dessert or my dinner leftovers and so on. I was good with the excuses, that dinner was smaller than a normal portion or the snack wasn't very much (but looking back, I knew I was lying to myself.)

I wonder if each person's body react differently to the carbs in the foods or is the other elements of the food. It has to be one or the other, right?

How many almonds? Do you mean 15-20 almonds (one serving in my book) or 5 fists full?
