Default Doing atkins and I am HANGRY

hello lovely ladies!

so , i just started doing low carb january 1st 2018 with induction phase.
My question is, how are you able to curb your hunger?
I am tired and a bit dizzy. I am eating 5 times a day and drinking a ton of water.
Please help! I really want to succeed.

I lost all my weight doing low carb, not Atkins so am familiar with this way of eating. Have you tried increasing your fat - it’s very satiating.

wont increasing fat worsen the liver? Sorry, not really educated about all this. I do know that my doctor told me to do a liver detox. Thanks!

Eating more fat while eating low carb isn't what hurts your body. It's eating more fat and carbs at the same time. Not entirely sure what to eat for a liver detox, though. Why did your doctor recommend one?


To get through the first few days, eat as much on plan food as you need. Your appetite should decrease once in ketosis. The first few days are rough.

I have an appt with a nutritionist in a couple of months (ugh, it's taking forever) BUT, i was just curious to see if anyone heard of any correlation between high fat and low carb .
Doctor tested blood levels and said my cholesterol numbers were off. I also had a recent miscarriage a couple of weeks ago and doctor mentioned now is the time to gear up and be healthy and lose weight. She made me feel terrible about it.
I am hoping that the Atkins diet will help me lose 40 pounds.

Neko- how many pounds, on average, did you lose per week?

At first it was two pounds a week, slowed to one pretty quickly Unfortunately, I've been pretty stalled since August. I'm trying to pay more attention to carbs/calories right now so hopefully I can make it to my goal.

If you haven't read the book, I would suggest doing that. If you're still hungry try drinking more water, increasing your protein. What are you all eating? I believe the book said not to worry about fat. And I believe your cholesterol will get better as time goes on also
