Gaining instead of losing
Atkins is so amazing! It will make your body so healthy for your life. But in order to enjoy the huge benefits of Atkins you have to give it your all and do it totally correctly.

I took a quick look at your diet calendar and I can definitely give you some advice.

Induction is 20 NET carbs per day, not less, with 12-15 of them coming from veggies. (the veggies are NON-negotiable)

Women must eat at least 1500-1800 calories per day.

60-70% of your calories should be from fat.

Green peas, cottage cheese, and beet are all not Induction foods.

Once you've revamped your menu to reflect the guidelines of Atkins I'm positive you'll have lifetime success!

Total Carbs - Fiber = NET carbs

trying the atkins
Gidgamoe,
Very bad advice and not at all what Dr. Atkins says. Induction is a 2 week jump start to weight loss and a way to get rid of cravings. Some people choose to stay on Induction for a bit longer. However, if you want LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off--for your LIFETIME, then you absolutely MUST lose most of your weight in OWL as Dr. Atkins intended. Some people aren't able to add back in every rung of the carb ladder, but the key is to find out what you can and can't eat to have LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off.

It's NOT about losing weight--that's the easy part. It's about the LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off.

Finding a Maintenance food plan after Atkins
It sounds like you did not follow all 4 phases of Atkins--sounds like you stayed on Induction the whole time you were dieting?

Induction is a 2-week jump start to weight loss and a way to get rid of your cravings. MOST of your weight should be lost in OWL (phase 2) where you introduce new foods slowly and methodically according to the OWL carb ladder. (all of the foods you listed would be added in in phase 2) Then with 10ish pounds left you head to Pre-Maintenance and then Maintenance. You REALLY should read about the amazing Atkins plan.

Fat fast support
I've been an Atkins follower for 10 years. I've helped a lot of people follow Atkins, too. I pride myself in having the most up-to-date health and nutrition information directly from Atkins. I know a lot about the Fat Fast.

Dr. Atkins used the Fat Fast only on extremely obese patients that could not START losing weight any other way--even after months of following his Atkins protocol correctly. The Fat Fast is NOT to be used to break a stall. You are only a candidate for the Fat Fast if you have not lost any inches OR weight at all. Furthermore, the Fat Fast is only to be done under the direct supervision of your doctor.

A true stall is no weight OR inches lost for at least 4 weeks. Are you measuring yourself?

Dr. Atkins said that it's extremely important that you get your body on a a perfectly even keel. By doing 'crash' diets, your body and metabolism are just going to get crazier and crazier. Losing weight is not a race--even with yourself. Trust the Atkins program and do it totally correctly. You will have LIFETIME success at keeping the weight off.
