The Atkins site mentioned 50% of calories derived from fat, 45% from protein and 5% from carbohydrate. I have a stubborn metabolism and am doing a 5 day fat fast which is beginning to move me into ketosis and weight loss. However, this is not recommended for more than 3-5 days. During this phase, I am at 80-85% fat, 10-12% protein and the rest in carbs. which is around 5%.

Tomorrow or Sunday I will switch back to regular induction.

I have been on a fat fast for a few days and dropped 5 pounds. I needed the metabolism boost! Now I am in deep ketosis so I will start adding protein and a few veggie carbs. It is difficult to get started, especially a second or third time. I lost 35 pounds on Atkins a few years back but now my metabolism is so stubborn it is much more difficult! Good luck. I think I sent you a buddy request and feel free to check my daily food intake.

Are you sure that's what the Atkins site says? I've been a member over there for 8 years and I've never seen that. It has been pounded into us, though, that our percentages should be 60-70% fat, 30-35% protein, and the rest in carbs.

Hi guys! I first tried the Atkins diet in 1999, counted total carbs and lost 34 pounds. It is almost 15 years later, metabolism and hormonal changes...and yes, I'm pre-menopausal Sad. So, right now I am stuck for almost a week and have actually gained almost a pound. I'm still exercising 6-7 days a week for 35 minutes and sometimes swimming or toning.
What I have been super confused about is: WHEN and WHY did the carb counts go from TOTAL carbs to NET carbs? I consume more protein and fat than anything no matter what I try. I tried NET carbbing for 3 days...and that is when the stall started and I gained a little weight. I stopped and went back to TOTAL carbs and am still having no luck. Any words of wisdom you can share with me?

Sounds like me. I did Atkins years ago and lost easily, now the pounds are stubborn. I switched to the fat fast keto diet and it kick started me back to fat burning. As we age it does seem to be much more difficult. I don't know why it went to net carbs but I do know too many sugar alcohols do cause stalls. I never counted calories before either. I just ate protein and fat and lost weight.
