(hope i'm putting this in the right place!!). A week ago i started on a high protien zero carb diet of eggs, red and white meats, bacon sausages and mushrooms NOTHING ELSE. I always used to love my carbs especially white bread and pasta etc and i also was drinking 10-12 mugs of coffee per day with semi skimmed milk and 1 spoon of sugar!! Since starting my new diet i have religously taken up the active sports program on the playstation console and also a little weight lifting every day just for 15-20 minutes or so. At the start of the diet i have also gone down to only 1 coffee in a morning (same ingredients as before) and 6-8 pints of water per day!
My meals stay the same every day for breakfast (2 boiled eggs and mushrooms) dinner is a piece of meat and 2 poached eggs and mushrooms and tea/supper is a couple of slices of bacon and a few sausages with mushrooms!
In my first week i have lost 8lbs! My start weight was 238lb last monday and i am now 230lbs!!
My goal is to get down to 190lb by july 7th when my wife, children and i go to egypt for 3 weeks
My question is....If i was to stick to this strict regime would i lose the same kinds of weight week in week out? or would it stabalize??
Thank you for comments/advice in advance, Andrew
I don't think Dr Atkins would argue with your choices. His original plan had very little veggies in it but he found many couldn't stick to such a restricted plan so he added the veggies to make it easier for them. If you can do this strict form I'm sure it will be okay. If you start to think you'd like variety go to http://www.genaw.com/lowcarb/

Men lose easier than women and young people lose easier than older folks...........I was 64 years old when I started this program and I was losing 1/2 to a full pound every day for a very long time. Almost every morning when I would get on the scale I would be down some amount......and even a small movement down is encouraging.
I suspect if you stay on the program and you're honest with yourself so you don't hide cheating from yourself...........you will be very happy with the results showing on your scale and you will feel wonderful when you head off on vacation.
