I don't really count because I was not doing atkins before--but I was doing a reduced carb diet very similiar to what is described in Atkins For Life (Pre-maintainence and Maintainence phases). I did lowish carb for 5 months, atkins for 2=7 months
Ok, ok, i know, not the same as 7 months of all atkins :P
Am I still losing weight? ummm good question. I lost 7 pounds in month one of atkins after being stalled out and cheating on my old plan. Now the scale went back up a tad and is holding still again. I do believe in the concept of set weights at which people naturally stall. I have been this weight many, many times and hated looking at the same number week after week. What it came down to was this: I LOVE Low carb food, I LOVE my energy level, and I LOVE not being hungry. Would I trade my stall for high carb nutso weight gain and mood swings?!!! never! I can easily put on 10 pounds a month while eating carbs and junk and attempting to eat like everyone else...I think a stall sounds lovely compared to that!
