So, I recently restarted Atkins and I have been very good about it. No major carb withdrawals. Doing fine. My problem is exercise...so I downloaded an app called Charity Miles which allows you to choose a charity that you walk/run/bike for.

The motivation though, for me, is that I have it set to automatically post my distance and the charity I choose on facebook. So, I push myself because it would just be embarassing to not even make a minimum of 1.5 miles at a pop. Just a thought and a share...

Good work on walking. You are strenghtening your most important muscle (heart) and working your metabolism.

How do I cnage diets from Atkins to calories?
Go to My Toolbox, then My diet. Atkins shows calories too. Maybe you just need to update your RDI or add calories to your Food Diary Nutritional Facts on My Account.
