I'm going to join you on here healthy cause my weight is gaining instead of losing and I have no idea why. I'm finding it hard t get in my fat intake especially because I live in China where its hard to find avocados and other foods we we would eat on Atkins in the USA. Anyways, here's my plan today.

B: 4 boiled eggs
L: 1 chicken breast, 1 zuchinni, 1/2 red onion, 2 tablespoons of mayo
D: 10 Chicken Wings, 1 tomato
Water- A gallon


I've been doing an extended atkins induction for a year now, except 4 months this summer when I was off plan due to electricity issues when living in Ghana and inability to cook or keep food refrigerated. I'm now two months into being on plan again 100% and in the past 5 days i'm showing a 6lb gain and don't know why.

Dear shan84,
Thank you so much for joining in.
Wow, I think it is exciting that you get to travel and live abroad.
Regarding your Atkins journey: look how far you have come and how determined you are!
You are an inspiration to me. It has always been a struggle for me to stick with it and look at you: sticking with it for such a long time!

As for fat intake: would it be possible to find stuff like coconut oil, maybe cook things in butter. Do you live in a big city?
Do they have department stores and grocery stores with foreign (from US or Europe) items?

Hang in there and stick with it.

I came home late tonight and had big cravings for bad things (bread, cookies, etc). I made good choices, didn't touch anything bad but think I overate in terms of calorie intake. Instead of mushrooms and turkey leg I had a cucumber, turkey meat, cheese, liver and mushrooms.

I think I might weigh in every couple of days or even once a week to avoid the stress of brief ups and downs. I don't know……I am debating.
My OCD leads me to daily weigh ins but I think it would be better to weigh in less often while still being on plan and at or below 20 net carbs per day.
OK, enough rambling.
Good night and take care!
Checking in again tomorrow!

Thanks for checking in.

I know I have come a long way and I know I stick to the plan 100% but I am just so frustrated. 6lbs in 5 days is a huge gain. I'm shell shocked. I'm trying to do as much research as I can because there has to be a reason or something I should be doing differently.

For fats, I get most of my fat intake from my mayo and from cooking in butter. I'm beginning to wonder if it's not enough.... Breakfast and lunch were as I posted above. Dinner is waiting at home ready to be cooked tonight. Hope the scale shows change tomorrow morning.

Hi ladies,

I hope you don't mind me chiming in here on the fat intake but I was having the same problem of gaining so I increased my fat intake to 55% carbs 15% and protein is 30% on my macros, I weigh everyday to keep myself liable.
For fat I use heavy whipping cream in my coffee morning which is 4.5 gms for 2 tbsp., and I drink only one cup in the am and then at night I drink a cup using sugar free vanilla creamer in the little tubs just one which is 1.5 gms, then my daily fat in foods I eat each day. If I don't have all my fat in then I eat a small plastic spoon of jif peanut butter alone! I also use virgin olive oil and butter to cook eggs and veggies in. It works for me, I've lost 37 lbs and 10 1/2 inches. I just turned 60 on 11/1/55

Hang in there this works. I normally net anywhere from 20-30 carbs a day

good luck to everyone.

Sherry- Thanks for your words on fat intake. I don't drink coffee at all so creamer and the likes are out for me. I will continue to cook everything in butter and olive oil.

So yesterday, I stuck to the menu of what I posted earlier in the day but after dinner I was shockingly hungry still so I boiled up some cauliflower, added some butter and salt and pepper and ate a cereal bowl of it. I think it put me a little over on my carbs but my breakdown for yesterday according to myfitnesspal was fat: 56%, protein: 37%, carbs: 7% and came in at 1395 calories (although i don't really pay attention to calories).

Anyways, I stepped on the scale this morning and I was down 5lbs! What the heck happened! I mean, I'm thrilled but will it stick and be legit. What was so different about yesterday? I mean I did up my water drastically but still....

Today's plan:
B: Woke up late so it becomes lunch
L: 6 strips of bacon, 3 fried eggs, 1 tomato
D: Garden salad, no dressing, 9 small chicken bites wrapped in bacon
Water: A gallon

Stayed on track yesterday with everything I posted.

I didn't see movement on the scale this morning which I'm ok with because that means the huge 5lb loss the day before might be true.

Here's todays plan:
B: 4 boiled eggs
L: 4 oz salmon, 1/2 red onion, 1 tomato
D: Not planned yet.
Water: a gallon

Hi Shan84,
Good job!
Sherry, thank you for sharing your wisdom with us.
Was on track yesterday but today I had crackers and toast needed due to a terrible stomach bug and things/symptoms I am not sharing here…….
I don't feel guilty. Tomorrow is another day.
Have a good night!

Hi all. Had another big drop yesterday. Another 2lbs. I'm calling this week a win so far. Last night I ended up cooking some baked chicken breast w/ butter, mayo, 2 slices of cheese, half an avocado, and some boiled cauliflower w/ butter, salt, and pepper. Also got all my water in yesterday.

Today's plan:
It's Saturday here in China so I slept late.

Brunch: Fried eggs, 1 tomato, 1/2 avocado
Dinner: 2 Baked chicken breasts in butter w/ mayo to dip it in, boiled cauliflower w/butter, salt, pepper, and 2 slices of cheese
Water: My gallon

Lost another 1.1 lbs overnight. Its a good boost to my confidence that I've seen weight loss this week finally. I hope I can continue the trend.

Today's plan: Slept in late again so no breakfast.
Brunch: 10 chicken wings cooked in butter, salt, and pepper, Cauliflower mash w/butter, salt, and pepper, 2 slices of cheese
Afternoon snack: 1 tomato
Dinner: 4 chicken legs cooked in butter, salt, and pepper, 1 zucchini, 5 baby mushrooms
Water: a gallon

Today's goal is to do some real exercise. Yesterday I did some stretching, sit ups, and leg exercises. Today I want to try some cardio.
