Have I blown it?!
I have been lurking around this forum for a while. First doing slimming world, then weight watchers!
I started following Atkins 2 weeks ago (it'll be 2 weeks end of this week!) I have lost 9lbs so far and feel great! I have stuck to it religiously and drank loads of water....until last night!
Yesterday my boyfriend of 7 years proposed to me! (i said yes!) Then came our friends with cupcakes, champagne and other Atkins no no's! I tried my best not to over do it, but didn't want to look ungrateful either!
My question is, if up until yesterday I have been following the plan fully and am back on it this morning, have I blown it? Will my body still be in ketosis or, will it take a day or two? I don't want that horrid head ache again!
(That is all I kept thinking about whilst having my one glass of champagne, one velvet cupcake and half an after eight choc!)
I went to bed happy after the proposal, but felt the rubbish food wasn't worth it and remembered how good I felt looking down at the scales last week.
Sorry for the long post! Have a great Friday everyone xx
Hi there - well done for your first two weeks and dont panic too much! You may well have been kicke out of ketosis but shouldnt have awful carb flu again. The trick is drink LOTS of water and eat enough low carb food to be satisfied. You will possibly have cravings or be starving - this is the danger time! Go clean and green and you might bounce uo but can back on track fast!
This doesnt mean you can cheat regulalry but one off no probs:D see sticky "so you are thinking of cheating" for more info. Good luck
I was here some time ago and lost 4 stone in less than five months on atkins. If you have a carb out burst like this just get back to the program. The initial weightloss will be water but the end results are loss of hunger and weightloss. I would have an odd glass of wine or vodka and diet soda without dropping from ketosis
