I am on day five of the Atkins....after a couple of days of a headache and fatigue the low hunger and high energy kicked in. It is so exciting. I went running in the late afternoon and lifted some weights, when I arrived home from the gym I was playing around on this site, it dawned on me that I never thought about lunch. I then grabbed two cups of lettuce and 4 oz of leftover grilled chicken breast with olive oil drizzled on top with a tad of sea salt. It was delish. It is dinnertime and I am not the least bit hungry. It is not that I am full but just SATISFIED. I am just thrilled. : ))Very Happy By the way, I had two eggs fried in olive oil this morning,two slices of nitrate free bacon and one large strawberry all before running to the gym. ( I sneak a couple of strawberries in when I run even though I am not suppose to do that on induction phase)

That is so encourging!I'm going to be starting atkins, do you think you are still burning fat when you eat strawberries? How often can we sneak in a fruit do you think? I might do that maybe twice a week? Smile

I did Atkins several years ago and was doing great with scales going in the right direction but my hair started falling out. My friend was also doing the Atkins and said her hair was falling out. We both quit the diet and our hair loss stopped. I donot think it has the same effect on everyone but just beware. Good luck.

Atkins is a very healthy way of eating, lots of salad and veges, berries nuts seeds good amounts of protein, a natural diet - no additives. I know in induction fruit is a no no- except those fruits that are vege fruits like tomatos avocados etc, but personally I think after a week or so a couple of strawberries or blueberries would not do anything to take you out of ketosis- and I do mean a couple meaning 2 LOL - enjoy, but if you get cravings for more, hold off on them for a while. Induction is for getting rid of those cravings and getting you into fat burning mode-ketosis.

Thanks folks! As for the berry, I took it because I was running out the door to RUN. Take a good look at the Atkins site, it is detailed on all these, each of us can start at phase 2 under certain criteria they have stated. Phase 2 allows berries, etc. In order to get serious keep up with the veggies, proteins and good fats. Don't be afraid to used butter and olive oil(add it to salads and veggies), especially on the leaner meats. The body has a way of turning even protein to sugar if there is no fat to work off of...keep that in mind. Fat is part of the science here. But really, go to the Atkins site and read there, it was great to learn more about this, things have changed thru the years. Also, read under their success stories, wow, what great inspiration. Congratulations Carrie...you are quite an inspiration...I hope I can do something big like that, too. You'll have to give us some good tips on your stamina to keep on going. Thank you everyone for being here congratulations to all. Feeling so blessed...

During the first phase of Atkins your best friends are going to be green veggies. Lettuce, spinach, celery, broccoli, brussels sprouts, asparagus, green beans, etc.

I have been feeling pretty ogood this first 6 days and have lost 5lbs. I do snack on veggies and have actually had supper really late several days. It didn't seem to impact my loss.
