I have to loose 200 lbs, so I know the temtation to stay on Phase 1 to loose more weight quickly.... but as others have said, it can lead to falling off the wagon
I have tried Atkins a few times... staying in phase 1, but you get sick of it pretty quickly, and it happens overnight. One day you are doing great, the next day you wake up and can`t stand the thought of more restrictions.
This is why i`m switching to SB (better food choices, for better health). THIS time around... I`m going to follow the suggested 2 week induction period, then move on.... so it will be easier to stay true to plan. I have been searching the web, reading , reading, and MORE reading for tips and hints from the people who have done it with success.. and HOW they have done it.
(Also, loosing weight TOO quickly can lead to saggy skin
But it is Your choice, and if it is something you would really like to do, then you should do it........ but not for TOO long. Either way, wishing you well with your results.
