When I started here, the Atkins site itself recommended I start with OWL as I only had 19 lbs left to lose to get to goal of 140. My weight has been stubborn with me so I chose to start induction first because I know Pre maintenance is when you have 10lbs left to lose. (I was losing at a rate of 2-5 lbs a month before Atkins)
It's been one week and I've gone from 159.6 or so to 153.8.
I'm scared that if I stay on induction too long, I won't have time to do OWL and then Pre maintenance properlly and I'll just shock my system with rapid weight loss (I need to slow it down as I'm nearing maintenance). I don't want to gain the weight back and I want to do this right.
Now reading what I have written, I think this would be a appropriate time to move ahead but I just wanted your guys opinions
