14 Days... The First Time Ever!!
I am so excited!!! OMG! For the first time ever I made it to 14 days after starting over so many times. I feel so great! I am down 10 pounds. It wasn't easy the first couple of days, but I pulled through!!

I want to stay on the induction but I want to add grapefruit? It's my favorite fruit...would that be okay?

Also, this is one of the best lowcarb sites out there, I just love this website and the many encouraging people...:):)

Did you read the book...you did induction and were a success ...I'd hate to see you wreck all your hard work...next thing to add is more veggies...if you don't have the book look up the atkins carb ladder on line. But, if having grapefruit is gonna make or break you, you could try it. If you continue to lose great, however the sugar in fruits often causes people to crave more carbs not just the fruit itself so be careful. If you add it back I don't think I would have it on a daily basis, save that for maintenance.

Thanks Terry. No, I wouldn't have it everyday...its just a thought...but I just miss my fruits so much!!!

If you wanted to move onto OWL, you could add 5g carbs' worth of berries and see if you still lose with that.
I second reading the book/info on the "carb ladder".
Congratulations on making it through the first two weeks and your great loss!
