Hi, I did Atkins before, and started up again recently "from memory". Some of the posts have addressed things that show my memory for detail is not as accurate as I'd hoped. I have a book on order, but until it arrives (I bought one at a bargain basement price, so shipping will be slower) could someone please tell me how much water we are supposed to be drinking during the Induction Phase? Thanks!

8 8oz glasses of water. I just started up 3 weeks ago and lost 2 lbs very slow but sticking to it .

Thanks! I'm doing pretty well there then!

I've been losing in spurts. I had 11 come off in one week, then weeks with nothing! Then I had 3-4 come off in a week, and then again nothing! I keep tweaking as I find out where my infractions are, and I'm also trying to up my calories some after reading a post about the importance of meeting the needs of our Basal Metabolic Rate. I'm hoping the "tweaks" help with more consistent results. Good luck and I'm glad your hanging in there!

The Atkins website has all of the basic info to get you started up again until your book arrives. There is also a forum with answers to common questions. Good luck!

Never said it effected CICO. But you didn't specify that either. You stated "And the glycemic Index, Matters not...". For people like myself who do LCHF, and for diabetics The GI is VERY ...

Favorite new product
Love the Blue Diamond Nut-Thins. Yes, they have the evil rice flour in addition to nut flour, but they are not horribly high in carbs, and they are FODMAP safe.
