How to ensure no muscle loss in Atkins
[quote=smughal]Will consider your suggestion, currently i am doing brisk walk for 45 min on daily basis[/quote] In that case is there any possibility that you can incorporate any uphill sections on your walks. I think this adds resistance and will increase muscle strength.

How to ensure no muscle loss in Atkins
You need to lift weights - I do a class at my gym called body pump which is weightlifting to music. It s amazing what a difference it has made. Though not on Atkins I am sure all my weight loss is fat not muscle.

Challenge updates
Thanks sunkeeper. I've emailed about this too. I will uncheck the boxes and see what happens. It's good to know I'm not alone on this.

Challenge updates
Hi. Am I doing something wrong? When I update my weight info I am checking the boxes to feed the information in to my challenges but they are not being updated at all. Is this a technical glitch with fatsecret or am I missing something?

Need some advice
Abbie - I always tell myself that the most difficult bit of exercise is stepping out of the door. If I only have that small barrier to overcome then it seems possible. If you need tips and encouragement I have been reading a website called nerd fitness which has some great tips about about doing it one step at a time and some good motivational stories. Incidentally before November I did hardly any exercise but now do at least 5 hrs per week and I'm amazed at how much better I feel. Logging it on your exercise chart is a good way to see that you do have time - try and get those resting hours down from 16 - it is much more difficult than you think.

Thanks so much - what a dope I am for not working that out.

Hi , I've been on the site for a 10 days or so and have been logging my food and exercise carefully. I can't work out why some days I get an asterisk in my diet calendar next to one or both and sometimes I don't. Anybody know?

bad day
If it were me I would blame it on the mother-in-law completely. There is no need to involve your husband, yourself, or even the car when there is a mother-in-law involved. Good luck today!

Diets are hard to stick to, and a "soup" diet sounds like the most vulnerable to failure. I recommend low carb - meats and green vegetables taste good and keep you from being hungry. Eating soup ...
