I'm just starting Atkins today. After much thought and procrastination I've decided to do it. I'm looking for people who have recently started or are just starting Induction to help keep me on track. Smile

Hey there! I just started today too. I'll be your buddy. I'm trying to lose about 50 lbs. I just had a baby 5 months ago so I need to get some of that weight off. I've done Atkins before and lost 60 lbs so I have high hopes for this go around.

It is really important to follow the Phase 1 acceptable food list, which is available for free on the Atkins website.
65-70% of your calories should come from fat each day.
Each day you should have no more than 20 net carbs.
If you have a headache, cravings or feel bloated while in induction, try a half avocado sprinkled with salt before bed. Works like a charm!

I've been on Induction for almost nine months,Dr.s' orders,half way there,ask me anything if you need help.Watch the cheese,eat the veggies and easy on the Atkins products.If you get the headache,Atkins recommends chicken or beef broth,headache means your body is turning to fat burning mode and Atkins is naturally diuretic,so you lose the sodium.Drink the water.I spread my veggies over the whole day but mostly the first half,burn it early and relax the evening.

Good morning everyone.

I started for my second time on Monday. I did very well the last time, but was in an accident and fell off. I am looking to lose about 100 lb. I am having some problems navigating on this site, but I keep trying.

Would love to join this forum. I have been on the Atkins diet for 10 days. Need to loose 65 lbs. My question is are they using net carbs as their tracker or just regular carbs?

Hello everyone. I'm actually re-starting today, for about the 100th time, it seems! I have had great success with Atkins (as long as I stick with it!)I've previously lost 60 lbs on Atkings and I've put 20 of those right back on. Enough is enough so today I start back. My plan is to get myself in ketosis then start my workout routine again. I need all the help I can get, I'm realizing this is more an emotional battle than I had thought.
With God, all things are possible!

You can set up the food tracker to show fiber and net carbs as well.

Hi all! I'm still really new to all of this so I didn't realize how many people had posted!

Thanks for the tip about headaches. I get migraines as it is so is there an easy way to tell if it's the diet or something else before I eat something?
