This is week three on Atkins....induction phase still. I have only lost 4.5lbs. I was on Atkins about 10 years ago and lost much quicker. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm in ketosis and have been the whole time. I'm eating mostly just meat, eggs, cheese and a few veggies. Im confused as to why I'm not losing. One or two days I had an Atkins bar but I have not cheated at all. I'm 5'2 and 162lbs. Please I need some advice I feel like giving up and trying something else. Also I am on the treadmill walking 1.5 to 2 miles a day. Sample menu: Breakfast: 4 slices of bacon 2 scrambled eggs in olive oil
Lunch: hamburger patty with cheese and bacon lettuce with full fat Ranch. Dinner: shrimp in butter or olive oil sometimes with mushrooms and yellow squash. Usually 3 times a week I was having an Atkins bar as a snack but I can cut that out.......also sometimes I will snack on ham or turkey with avocado. I usually have an avocado a day. Plus lots of water and usually 1-2 packets of crystal light with my water. Any suggestions?
