WOE: counting carbs
Weight loss in first two weeks of low carb?

How much weight did you guys lose during the first two weeks of your low carb diet? Just curious as I'm just getting started with counting carbs, and I'm trying to get a general idea of how I can expect to lose my first two weeks.

Expect the Unexpected.

I had 108 lbs to lose ... everyone else my weight was losing 10-15 lbs. I lost 4 the first week and 2 the second week for a total of six. By the end of the month I had lost a total of 10 ...

and after 6 weeks I had the usual "post-induction stall" ... if I had focused too hard on the numbers I would have quit and not gone on to lose 91 lbs my first year and make it to goal ....

You'll do great!!! Don't worry about the numbers .... it will all come ...

Peoples losses vary GREATLY depending on many factors like how much you need to lose. I lost 12 lbs during induction.... I'm sure at least 8 of that was water!

Hi s2bs2,
I lost 8 pounds, then took 8 weeks to lose 2 more. I got cocky and stopped counting, and was doing it without a book or real plan. Last week I got a book = 2 pounds lost.
Good luck. I do love eating low carb. I feel so good.
