A big hello heres a bit of my background have been on the Atkins diet on and off for 4 years to loose weight after childbirth. It works for me and I stick to it. Im female 32 5 foot 3 in height. My current weight is 10 stone 3 pound.
I can stick to the diet I dont cheat, understand how it works and generally have never had any issues with it. I started back on the diet 4 weeks ago after my birthday. I havent cheated and in Ketosis, drink loads and have bad breath so I know as such things are as they should be however in 4 weeks ive lost nothing and this week gained a pound. BMI is now 25.6
Now the only difference this time round from the other times is that im now taking an anti depressant called Fluoxetine given to me by my GP in a 20mg one a day tablet. Is this what could be causing it? The Gp need my BMI to go down to 24 to continue with me taking the contraceptive pill (sorry if TMI) I dont drink or smoke but as im over 30 im classed as high rish so that 1.6 of a BMI makes a massive difference.
I dont drive so walk everywhere and am a busy Mum of 3 so its not like im not active. I eat well and genuinally stick to the diet 100%. Can anyone please offer any advice. Ive mentioned Atkins to the Gp before who said it was rubbish and id be better off at Weight Watchers.
Id be happy to answer and questions and many thanks for any advice. May I wish you all well on your weight loss journey xx
