I am Loving Induction

I love this way of eating!

I am eating wonderful foods that I have always enjoyed, but was terrified to eat too much of. I am satisfied almost constantly. I feel great. I am sleeping great. I haven't had a headache the whole time.

And, I started at 238 lbs and this am I weighed 222.6! 15 lbs in two weeks - 8 the 1st week and 7 the 2nd week. Even if I slow to 5 lbs a week ( don't know if this is realistic or not), I will be within 7 or 8 lbs of my goal in 3 weeks!

Seems too good to be true. I am a 57 year old male. Goal weight is 200.

Not sure how long to stay on induction, but I was thinking until I was about 6 or 7 pounds off my goal - thoughts?

A big factor is my wife is an awesome cook - we have been using Linda's low carb site's recipes, which are very very good!


thx, Steve

Steve.

Congratulations on your success so far! Be aware that it WILL slow down, and five pounds per week might not be realistic, even though you're a man. Be prepared for that.

An extended induction is fine, but I would strongly encourage you to move through all three phases before you get to maintenance. They're designed to teach you to make good choices long-term, and be able to KEEP the weight off. Losing is just part one. Maintenance is the long haul, and pre-maintenance is crucial to teach you how to eat this way without losing or gaining.

Current weight is 218. Things have slowed in terms of weight loss, but:

1). I feel great
2). Lots of energy and stabile energy. I am not getting tired at 9pm anymore. Seriously, I am awake until 11:30 and up at 6am, wide awake.

3). I don't get very hungry
4). I eat as much as I want and I simply have not experienced those times when "the more you eat, the more you want", which I used to experience allot
5). I am losing 1 to 2 lbs per week.

18 to 20 lbs to go

So glad to be off sugar and junk carbs!

That's a great pace to lose. That's about how much I lose when I don't stray off the path.
