performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week

I've never had a weight problem until the past few years as I've come closer to menopause. I've been putting on some pounds and having a lot of problems losing them. It's become even worse as I started on bHRT back in January. I started craving sweets and carbs like crazy - and gave in to it most evenings... Now that my hormone levels are lowered and more balanced, my carb and sweet cravings have lessened. Lessened even more the longer I stay on the Atkins low carb program. I'm hoping this will work for me as I cannot afford to buy any more clothes in yet larger sizes! Not to mention, I hate the way I look and was feeling.

CHEATING!
I've found that cravings are my body's way of telling me I'm not getting enough fat. Do not be afraid of eating lots of fat on Atkins - especially during Induction. Good luck!

fatsecret is right? about carb count?
I didn't know that...when I input the Atkins bars I put sugar alcohols under "Other Carbohydrates" so maybe that's why it gets deducted. FS *should show sugar alcohol specifically though.

fatsecret is right? about carb count?
When you input it into your diet calendar it will automatically deduct the fiber and sugar alcohols, if you have your account set up for net carb count. It will then show 2 net carbs on your diet calendar.
