Hi! I am following Atkins owl. So not induction as i felt really ill on it. So now I try to keep my carbs around 50g. I d rather keep track of calories which seems the best way regardless of what you eat!! So I set it at 1200. Doing well average 102 percent on average in last ten days. Question when tracking exercise as well. The tracker always gives me a good difference between exercise calories and food calories. So in one day I have a net deficit of 800 let's say from the 2000 required to sleep and rest from my intake 1200. So after 5 days I should have 4000 calories deficit so more than one pound (3500 calories) but the scale is not moving!! Am I using this tracker right??

I will let someone else answer about the tracker - but as far as i remember it works best if you do not count things like driving, shopping and only the actual exercise as some of the other daily stuff is already worked in.

Another thing is that the Atkins diet tend to work better if you eat fats and therefore keep you calories higher (not super high)
However if doing lower carb and watch the other aspects feels better for you
