: : 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.

: Hi Judy--I am 50 and finally figured out how to get this diet to work, I have lost 35 pounds so far. I had to get off hormone replacements and I went to GNC and bought xenadrine. I tahe one at 10:00 in the morning and the snacking urge left. I cook my own chicken and turkey--store bought lunch meat didn't work for me. I eat ham sausages with vidalia onions --but so far that has not slowed the weight loss. I drink one gallon of water a day and also have to have my decaf. I have added an apple a day. My husband bought a bushel and I am making them last. You have to watch fruit--add it slowly. Good to talk to ya--hang in there. I walk my dog 6 times a day and walk to the post office when the weather permits. Oh and if you have to snack--go with diet jello with spray whipped cream with no carbs or sugar, pork rinds or cheese spread on pork rinds--not bad

Kay, thanks so much for your reply - it was very helpful. I stopped the hormones last year. I will check out the xenedrine, but am concerned about what's in it - most stuff with the edrine at the end are stimulants. Do you use any particular cheese spread with the pork rinds - I already use rinds. the ham sausages with vidalia onions sounds great. Any particular brand of sausage you recommend? It's obvious I have to up my water intake. Also, with the chicken and turkey, do you get skinless?? Thanks, Judy
