New member saying Hello to Everyone
« on: March 16, 2012, 12:17:37 PM »
Hi all. I am new and starting phase 1 today. I have been on the atkins regimine for almost a year now and have lost 501lbs but have been stuck at the same weight for 2 months so decided to shake things up and try this out. 30 more lbs to go and this system seems up my alley... Any advise for a newbie is appreciated...

You lost 501 lbs or 50lbs either way that is awesome. Just finished wek one and def lost weight just not stepping on the scale for 3 more weeks. This is very easy to follow and your felling og health will start immediately. Try to be strict and success will follow. Good luck!

Atkins is low carb isn't it?  If so I wouldn't eat a high carb meal every day if you've been on atkins, I would keep the carbs just as low for phase 1.  But hey I'm no expert on this I just registered but I've been eating grain free for several months now and I feel great.  Remember the goal isn't just to lose weight or hit a certain weight but to healthy and strong (not bulked up necessarily).

And if you find that you're not dropping any more fat after a couple weeks then try eating 500 or so less calories from fat a day to try to encourage using body fat for energy in the absence of dietary fat.  Or include some more physical activities.  Or both maybe.  Again, I'm no expert.
