I am a 53-year-old woman who first tried Atkins last November. Lost 12 pounds over several months and then plateaued - I 've since gained back 8 pounds and I'm starting over. I've been following the induction diet for about a week and a half - lost four pounds at first and then nothing for over a week. Not sure why - I believe Atkins can work for me, but not sure why it isn't. Can people share what's most effective for them.
I've been using a lot of cheese and sour cream, also turkey, chicken and beef and shrimp.
I have a small salad with cut-up turkey breast every day.
I do have trouble with water intake - I much prefer decaf coffee with some saccharine, but I'm trying to remedy that.
Also, I notice my staple turkey breast and turkey ham, although they do have 0 and 1 gram of carbohydrate respectively, have sugar and sodium phosphates listed in the ingredients. Is this a big deal?
I have a tendency to snack at night - on no or low carb stuff - does time of day for eating have any impact?
Finally, I received a flyer in the mail for a product called chitoplex - anyone comment on whether this or any of the other low-carb diet supplements work?
Any suggestions appreciated.
