baimak, I'm sorry that you're finding it difficult to get through induction. I agree that it can be the most stressful time of the diet, but it is very, very important that you train your body to not need the carbs and the sugars.
Arkansas Kel has given you a lot of good advice for getting through this time. You need to look at what's going on and then ask yourself the important questions. Why am I slipping off of the diet? What is triggering me to eat what I know I shouldn't? Am I stressed? Bored? Upset? Angry?
I experienced a lot of fatigue and even headaches/nausea as I went through the Induction period last week. It can be very tempting to slip off and indulge in "comfort foods" during this time. Please resist that with everything that you can!
What is occurring is that this is a turning point in which your body is beginning to switch from using stored fats for energy instead of storing more fat from
what you're eating.
This change may make you feel weak and sick at first. I experienced this as well. It's commonly known as the "Atkins Flu". After a few days, you'll be more energetic, more hopeful, clearer and more determined that ever before. So when you're tempted to give up please come here and talk to us! We'll get you through! Atkins does work!
Just last week I was dealing with the same symptoms that you are, and now I'm over 20 lbs lighter in 2 weeks time! I also feel better than I have in years! You can do it!
Here is a website that you can check out that explains exactly what is going on and how you can get through this period of time. There is also a short video from a person that lost a huge amount of weight of Atkins and how he got through the Atkins Flu. I think that you'll find it very helpful, informative, and encouraging. I know that it helped me a lot last week when I was on the threshold of quitting the diet.
I hope that this helps you!
P.S. I also highly recommend checking out FitDay! It's a program that's on the internet that helps you to log your food, moods, and activities each day in order to help you to see "patterns" to your behavior. This might help you to figure out what your pitfalls are and how to overcome them.
