Default Geez I guess Atkins does work!

I have only been on Atkins for 4 days and was ready to give up, I stepped on the scale this morning and lost 3 lbs. I havent really been doing the diet, the way it should be. I have had absolutly no carbs at all. Just chicken, pork, tuna and lots and lots of eggs and cheese. I bet I have had over a pound of cheese in the last 3 days. And I havent even gone to the bathroom in about 3 days. I guess I will continue on this and get the book so I know what I am doing is correct .

You might want to have a look at the following links until you get your book


Basically, Atkins Induction is 20 carbs per day, 12-15 coming from veggies & salad from the acceptable foods list. Cheese (the varieties listed on the acceptable foods list) is limited to 3-4 oz. per day

Hi Janis! Congrats on your loss so far! Atkins realy does work! Get some low carb veggies, you need some carbs and fiber. Cheese can be constipating in large amounts for some people, especialy if you aren't eating any fiber. Getting your veggies in and lots of water will help you lose more. You will like the book, it is very informative and helpfull. Ask any questions you have here as well. We're all here for ya.
