I've been on Atkins for two days and have gained three pounds. I have counted carbs, not exceeded my 20g's. Is this normal? How long until Ketosis begins and fat starts to burn?...Help!Shock

I did Atkins years ago and the fat starts burning within the first 2 weeks and gains a head of steam after a few days. Try and do some exercise as well, it will help alot.

With Atkins you will most definitely rip through some early weight loss. It's fantastic like that. Just as long as you don't crave some carbos. Smile
