Carb Tracker for Gina's Journal, 21 March 2013

oops. Sometimes, even when we're 1000% accurate and in full ketosis, weight appears to increase. I never worry about it, it'll correct itself in a few days OR the day befores was inaccurate.

Also, changed my RDI to 14??. I think the default was 2000. Not that I pay attention to calories. I've put it in place so that I can actually document that the actual calorie doesn't matter too much on Atkins. That being said, if you plan to switch off Atkins at some point and do caloric, it's important to SEE where your calories WERE coming from.
Once before, over 20 years ago, I lost 35 lbs on Atkins, switched to NORMAL caloric parameters and did fine for 25 years until I stopped smoking..... now I need to lose 50 (15 down, 35 to go) to maintain my health. Have to admit, it's been easier to do the diet. I think mainly because I'm willing to eat things now that I wouldn't touch before (ie spinach!, sugar free jello). Hey, tastes change!, but I don't seem to be so obsessed either this time. (age perhaps?) The biggest issue is that being so close to 60 that, research shows, it's harder to shed the pounds. Well, I'm just not in as big of a hurry as I was 20 years ago either! As long as I'm losing, I'm sticking with Atkins.
172.4 lb Lost so far: 17.4 lb.    Still to go: 32.4 lb.    Diet followed 100%.
