FYI... there's no guarantee that two weeks of Induction will cause a ten pound loss, either. The larger numbers are usually for people with a lot to lose. If someone has 100 pounds to lose and drops ten pounds in Induction, then you... with only ten pounds to lose... will probably lose much less. You'll lose water weight by entering ketosis. It takes water to hold glycogen (stored carbohydrate) in your tissues. Once you use up the glycogen and you don't make more, then the water used to hold it is eliminated. Go back to producing glycogen (leave ketosis) and your body will replenish its glycogen stores... and you'll "gain" the water weight back.

Honestly... Induction is only the beginning. It's not a diet in and of itself. It will be interesting to see if it works for you and if you're able to transition to another way of eating without regaining what you might lose in these two weeks. Please keep us informed of your progress so we can guide others in the future with your experience.
