@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.
