Will I gain weight If I go on Atkins?
Hey guys. I'm really thinking of doing Atkins to help me overcome my food addictions and my Bulimia. My mother thinks it will be good for me and will possibly help me in overcoming my COE and Bulimia. Two things I have struggled with my whole life (bulimia for only the last year and a half). I've read the whole book, and it sounds too good to be true. The last thing I need for recovery is to gain weight! That will send me spiraling right back into bulimia. It seems that most of the people in the success stories goal weights are 135 lbs or above. I'm 5'7'' and 126 lbs, so how could it work for me? I want to get down to 120 lbs., and stay there. No more COE or Bulimia to help me. Do you think I'll gain weight on it, honestly? Also, do even "normal" (non-ed) people gain weight the first couple of days?
Goal: Healthy eating forever!
