Anyone on medications that cause weight gain? I am on Atkins and went on a new med and put on 4lbs. That is emotionally sad for me, however; I will keep on trying no matter what!

Insulin and any of the Sulfonylureas do the same for me. Fortunately cutting way back on carbs to the Induction phase allows me to significantly cut back on one and eliminate all the others. Unfortunately, I can't cut back totally on all of them as, for me, protein still requires insulin.
Avoiding the things that raise blood insulin and leptin levels works. Really!
