Sounds like me. I did Atkins years ago and lost easily, now the pounds are stubborn. I switched to the fat fast keto diet and it kick started me back to fat burning. As we age it does seem to be much more difficult. I don't know why it went to net carbs but I do know too many sugar alcohols do cause stalls. I never counted calories before either. I just ate protein and fat and lost weight.

I have been on a fat fast for a few days and dropped 5 pounds. I needed the metabolism boost! Now I am in deep ketosis so I will start adding protein and a few veggie carbs. It is difficult to get started, especially a second or third time. I lost 35 pounds on Atkins a few years back but now my metabolism is so stubborn it is much more difficult! Good luck. I think I sent you a buddy request and feel free to check my daily food intake.

The Atkins site mentioned 50% of calories derived from fat, 45% from protein and 5% from carbohydrate. I have a stubborn metabolism and am doing a 5 day fat fast which is beginning to move me into ketosis and weight loss. However, this is not recommended for more than 3-5 days. During this phase, I am at 80-85% fat, 10-12% protein and the rest in carbs. which is around 5%.

Tomorrow or Sunday I will switch back to regular induction.
