I absolutely loved this post. Its as honest as it gets. I decided to stay in induction for a long haul as I am trying to lose 120 lbs
Induction is were you lose weight at a more rapid rate and I wanted to take advantage of that. Was I afraid that I was going to stop losing weight...no. There are many discussions on the Atkins site going pro and con regarding the change over.
If you feel comfortable in your new diet its ok, but if you are getting bored of food choices, you are better off in OWL because you will demotivate.
I intend on going to OWL when I have about 25 lbs more to lose

Welcome aboard . We were all newbies at one time. I still feel like a newbie cause I learn every day
This site is amazing even though it has its faults.
Be sure to add everything you eat in the food journal. Its amazing what you will find.
a few quick tips
1) don't be a stickler on calories, its easy to get side tracked, make sure you get enough foundation vegtables and protien
2)never ever skip breakfast
3)get a scale for your food, and weigh and measure yourself regularily
4) never let the scale ruin your day. If it says you gained, that can be natural, or muscle build up. But always review back to weight journal and your diet handbook. usually the answers are found in there.
Some things ive found.
If i dont eat protien with veggies, my performance goes down
If i eat to few calories my weight loss stalls
Dont get to uptight about the treadmill, stairs go really good with this

calculating net carbs
Yes there is. If you look at the Food Diary in the date section there is a link to Edit Preferences
I monitor net carbs carbs fibre and calories and the RDI info...

I've been wondering the same thing. My recommended is 2900 which is unreal. I've decided that as long as i keep eating the recommended things and include butter or whip cream or olve oil involved ill be ok
I max out at around 62 % of the recommended.
Also note that the site doesnt allow to try lose more than a pould a week, so the index is skewed from the start. Just remember 3500 cal equals a lb so if you continually are below recommended at are at at least 1000 to 1200 cal you are ok
Dont starve yourself, make sure you get the right mix and try follow the diet in Atkins. They give recommended meals....i put them in FatSecret to test and they are well below calorie levels on here
