I read the book a couple of years ago, and this time just skimmed thru the induction chapter. My carbs were on the acceptable list. The only thing that might be questionable was of course my coffee and I thought I would try working on that after the first 3 days were up. The thing is even if the scales showed a loss (water being dumped) it still doesn't make any sense that you can eat 3000 cal and loss weight. Today has been a little more under control, and I am counting on ketosis to curb some of the eating, along with a temp job that I am starting soon. Still, I would like to have an upper calorie intake to go by. It seems to me that I read somewhere at one time that 1750 cal on atkins was roughly equivelant to 1200 on other diets due to the ketosis.
Thank you for your response because I feel that is where I will finally fall into, calorie range that is. I am the type that likes to plan out a plan of action and unlimited eating worries me.
Thanks for the welcome
PS I'll have to get my ticker going so I can get up to speed with the group
