... when after I add one, the next one it tells me I cannot add another buddy so soon? I'm on day 3 of induction of Atkins. I'm so tired I can hardly stand it. Food seems to be ok, not too hungry and I eat something about every two hours. I've been low on calories and carbs.

Hi Dorinda. From what I've read, your tiredness might be what's called the "atkins flu" On, it's recognized as a typical response to the initial low carb part of the program, but doesn't have to occur if you follow a couple of rules. Drink at least 2 cups of chicken broth each day, as loss of sodium could be the reason; drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day - this is critical; and take a good multi-vitamin. All these suggestions helped me. Also, calories aren't critical in this initial phase, as long as you don't go "hog-wild."

Hi Dorinda! Miss_Red is so correct! I added the chicken broth each day and sure enough the tiredness went away! Plus more water too. You can do this, just follow the help suggested. Smile

Tiredness is greatly improved. It last two long days but by the next day I was much better. Still have weakness in muscles but I've had that so long i figure it will take some exercise to get strong again.

For the question/problem about adding buddies, go to the CalorieCounter people instead of the forum here. I'm pretty new to the forums, isn't there something for web/app issues?

dorindam59 how are you doing on Atkins now? are you still following it? I started it about 2 months ago and followed it strictly for about 6 weeks. I was so tired all the time and frustrated at the small variety of foods available after that length of time. I never got to the gym once in that 6 weeks and I still feel like i'm trying to drag my motivation out again.

Got to get serious
You can do it - don't give up! The key for me is to relentlessly weigh and measure everything I put in my mouth. And log it completely honestly. And bulk up all my meals with lots of veggies.

Im hanging in there but have read about someone losing 77lb in 3 months. I just wonder how that was done. Mine looks miserable compared to that.

Weepy? Food related or having to deal with emotions without using food?

Are you on Facebook?
I spend a great deal of time on Facebook and I am always looking for friends there. If you are on Facebook and want a diet buddy please look me up. My name is Holly Naim on there. Thank you
