    Average monthly loss on Atkins

    Hi, I am currently doing a VLCD and getting on well with it. I am thinking about what I will do when the 12 weeks are up, as I don't plan to do it any longer, but will still have about 2 - 2.5 stone to lose.

    Am thinking about Atkins and wondered what the average monthly was was on this diet?
    5 1/2 stones lost Jan - July

    New target, lose 14lbs by Christmas

    Before...never again! and June 2009

    I haven't been on it for long enough this time around to comment, and I haven't done it following a vlcd.

    Rose Elliott in her book says that weekly losses are higher in the first six months than "traditional" high-carb-low-fat diets and then level out to the same (i.e. 1 to 2 lbs a week) so I can only assume that her experience is that losses in the first six months are 2 to 3 pounds a week or more.

    I've just moved over from weight watchers to low carb and lost 4lbs in my first week. Other people seem to be doing even better than that in their early weeks.

    Hope that helps x

    Sarah, after the initial huge losses on the first few weeks of Induction I lost 2lb a week most weeks with the occasional 3lb loss.

    Thanks for your replies. I have been looking at Atkins online and it looks like it could well be the plan for me after my 12 weeks of VLCD.

    I am sure I will back with more questions then.

    To be honest I would be VERY happy with a 2lbs a week loss on Atkins. I did CD and my average weekly losses were 4lbs with NO food.

    Good luck Sarah

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies. I am doing Exante. I can order it online and just get help over the phone or email when I want it. I have a post going on Exante on the VLCD board.

    I am finding it really good so far, but plan to move to Atkins after 12 weeks.

    Having seen that my losses are really good abstaining from food, I have decided to try a week on their working plan, which allows me to have a 300 cal ketogenic meal also. Am going to see if it affects my losses. I don't think it will too much as I walk the dog for over 1.5 hours a day and that is helping to burn the fat. So I am preparing myself for Atkins by doing these kinds of meals. Am still in ketotis!
