@Sarah+Keith I believe in keeping my doctors in the loop. The 72' Atkins is completely different than what is online. No worries. My woe is what got me from having HBP, High Cholesterol, Diabetes, and more to being all back to normal. What works for some, does not work for all. My health is definitely the oddball to the norm.

So I did the grocery shopping and am geared to go. I came back on here and read some of the food journals of others on Atkins. Why are so many Not eating?? I see people who are eating bare minimum or eating mostly snack type food (cheese) as meals. The original Atkins does not limit calories. In fact Dr. Atkins specified you would lose weight eating 3000-4000 calories a day if you followed his plan. When I follow the original Atkins, I never count calories and always eat as much as I want. I end up losing weight every time. It makes me wonder if those who are trying to follow Atkins and count calories are stressing themselves out to much.

I'm slightly confused with my diet
My two cents - 700 calories is not to low depending on the diet or way of eating you are using. I use Atkins and IF. My calories ranges from 0 to 1700 was the highest day. On average it is usually around 700-800. I have lost a lot of weight in 12 weeks and continue to lose at a good pace. The real key is getting to know your body and what works for it. We all are different and have different metabolisms, health issues, stressors in life, medications - all of which can effect weight loss. Personally, I have a huge problem with appetite as I am never hungry. Plus with my medical issues and medications I have had a difficult time losing until I started the plan I am on now. I am also under doctor's supervision on my woe and have not lost any muscle. For me I lose better when my fat% is around 73-75, and I cannot go over 10n carbs or I start to gain again. My point is we have to find what works for us as individuals and although we can all give out advice, what we do may not work for the other person. You have got to learn for yourself what works for you. Do the research on different eating plans, find one you like and stick with it for awhile.

I love Fat Head. It really throws the monkey wrench into 'normal diet recommendations'. Just wish I could get my mom to understand this and maybe she could get off th echolesterol and diabetic meds she is on. Willtry, I do hope you weren't using vomiting or laxatives to 'lose' weight. That is classic bulimia.

Thank you Reddarin for your post. I should be more willing to do like you did and get into the specifics of other's posts, but I felt Ledunkly was stuck in the mud so to speak especially saying she was a dietician. You would think a dietician would actually do the research.

Azure, you posted your question on an Atkins topic, but I will provide you with the information I know. I read the book awhile ago so may not have advice on everything you are wanting. Carb Nite is basically a combination of Atkins, Juddd and IF. You keep your carbs under 30 but are allowed a free day once a week to eat what you want. I believe there is a 10 day induction period from what I remember where you stay low carb. On the 'Carb Nite' women are recommended to stay low fat while men do not have to. On low carb days no sugars or sugar alcohols are allowed, but many people do not follow the no sugar alcohols rule. There's a lot of other rules especially regarding workouts and fasting. Overall I found the information in the book to vague. There is a spreadsheet in the book that lists a lot of foods by the F F+, P P+, and N what that means is Fat and Fat with something else, Protein and Protein with something else, and then Neutral. This is because many foods have more than one macro and this helps you identify them. Now my personal observations of the program. It is a very good diet for people who workout if they build their Carb Nite around their workout schedule. It will help them get the extra energy boost needed and help them build LMM faster and lose excess fat. But it is not a good program for others because of the insulin spikes. Continual Insulin spikes cause damage to the body's systems and can be deadly for diabetics. So health-wise not so great for the normal non-workout person. If you go to the carbnite website you can see his graph that he shows of the insulin spikes. They are horrible! I would be in the hospital with those type of spikes. So I think the program is okay for bodybuilders and those who have a workout program but not for normal, healthy that do not work out and definitely not healthy for persons already with health issues.

Orangesmarti, I can tell you really care and are coming from a place where your experiences gear you towards the opinion you hold. But I really hope you do more research before making statements about carbs being okay for people and not making you fat, especially when you may not know what illnesses they have or what meds they are on. [b]Your quote from FitDay is very inaccurate, and if you read the comments on there you see most of the people disagreed with the article. [/b] Talk to any doctor who is worth their salt that knows about glucose spikes. Sugars and Carbs cause blood sugar spikes and can be very dangerous for a person with diabetes or pre-diabetic which I am along with many other illnesses. For those who are not diabetic, Atkins does progressively allow you to add back in some fruits and even nuts. Atkins diet was created by an actual doctor- Dr. Robert Atkins, a cardiologist, and he helped so many people who had heart issues, diabetes and other illnesses. You can eat high calories on this diet, even though so many find that they never need to eat high calories. Most people on Atkins diet eat more servings of vegetables than on any other diet. Here is an in-depth research article showing 23 different studies and their results on low carb versus low fat diet and the benefits of low carb eating. [url=http://authoritynutrition.com/23-studies-on-low-carb-and-low-fat-diets/]23 Studies on Low carb versus Low Fat[/url] The one thing you did say that was I totally agree with is "The best kind way to lose weight is to go on a lifestyle change". Atkins is a lifestyle change and it is becoming more and more recognized globally as a better way of living than the previously held belief of high carb diets. I know you are still under that impression and most likely nothing anyone here anyone says will change your mind. But the more you open your mind and learn by talking to actual people on Atkins and doctors who are familiar with it(Atkins has been around since the mid 1960's), you will see how wrong your ideas are. It is not a trend or fad diet. It is based on good, sound, scientific research, and time and time again it has been proven to have so many health benefits and help bring people back to a healthy state even after being diagnosed with illness. Many go from being handcuffed to taking medications every day for the rest of their life to being able to reduce or even eliminate those same meds after changing to the Atkins way of life. You will never find even one scientific study that can prove the Atkins diet is unhealthy or bad for you; but you will find many that show its benefits. I am sorry you had such a bad episode with predisone. I do not know the reason you took it, but I can say I also took predisone for many years due to one of my illnesses. I have also taken diabetic medicines, thyroid medicines, heart medicines, seizure medicines, antidepressants, and a whole lot of other meds, most of which cause weight gain. While I commend you for being able to get off your med, I can not just do away with or stop my meds without major side effects. This woe will allow me to eventually reduce and eliminate some or even most of the meds I am on.

NET Cals
The net (kcal) refers to your caloric intake(what you've eaten)minus your caloric expenditure (what you've used). Let's say you ate 1644kcals in a day, you did nothing but rest/sleep in that 24hrs, so you expended 2036kcals. Your net kcals would be -392. It takes on average -3200kcals to lose a pound of weight. If Net is positive (Intake is greater than Burn) you have a calorie surplus, which leads to weight gain. If Net is negative (Intake is less than Burn) you have a calorie deficit, which leads to weight loss. If Net is zero (Intake is the same as Burn) you have a calorie balance, which leads to weight maintenance. There are a lot of discussions on what is acceptable for net kcals. In a normal healthy adult the goal would be to lose a pound or two a week. That would equal to 500 to 1000 negative netcals a day.

Hungry on 1500 calories
Willtry, I really don't think the calories will hurt you. I have seen people on Atkins go really, I mean Really high calorie and as long as they don't go over their CCL they still lose weight. Oranges and Ledunkley, I won't discuss the science of CHO or the SAD. I have done my research and so has my doctor who I have faith in. To each their own- what works for some doesn't work for others. Luckily my doctor and nutritionist are both aware of my diet and are on board with it. They are the ones that steered me to this woe. My breakdown is 74%fat/23%Protein/3%carbs.

Hungry on 1500 calories
Willtry, I eat under 10 net carbs most days and steadily lose weight. Your body does not need carbs at all. I don't know what version of Atkins you are doing, but in the 72 version if you hit a stall where you are not losing weight or inches, you should go back to Induction for 3-4 days to 'shake things up. 72' Induction has 0 carb intake. You can eat the meats, fowl, eggs, but not all seafood - leave out oysters, clams, mussels, scallops and any pickled fish. The original didn't limit margarine, shortening, or mayo. It also allowed artificial sweeteners, vinegar, extracts and other condiments w/o sugar. You could enjoy coffee, tea, diet soda as long as it did not contain sugar. You could have the juice of a lemon or lime, 4oz of cheese incl. cottage, but no cream cheese or cheese spread. Heavy cream was allowed at 4tsp a day but no milk. And Two small green salads a day (each less than one cupful, loosely packed) made only of leafy greens, celery or cucumbers and radishes. Dressings with vinegar, oil, salt, dry spices, herbs, grated cheese, or anchovies. Or else a sour pickle in place of a salad. Plus . . . green olives. So maybe try strict Induction for a few days then back to your regular eating. I have a lot of meds that cause me to gain weight and personally I have to eat under 10net carbs regularly and then every other week I do strict Induction just to lose weight.

How?
you really want to see how inaccurate the scale is - weigh every hour. You will have shifts in pounds throughout the day.

Disabled and Trapped in a Fat Suit! Advice?
Well the good thing is you are doing very well for someone with SMA. If you are not currently in physical therapy, I would suggest to start. It is most definitely covered by insurance for someone with SMA. I have minor scoliosis with moderate-severe lordosis. I also have several herniated/displaced discs in my lower back. So I understand the issue of not being able to exercise. My suggestion would be to go back on Atkins and stay at the induction level. You will lose weight slower than most people because of your limitations, but you will lose and you will be healthier. Eating all that junk food is just not healthy regardless of a need or want to lose weight.
