    Hello lovelys!

    Just wondering if these have any influences oon weight loss/stalls etc. I used them the last attempt and they didn't seem to affect me, just wondering if perhaps this time they may be the reason im struggling for a loss?:confused:

    Did you say you had chips on friday? I might have read someone else saying that, sorry, there are a lot of juleses around right now! If so, that will be the reason you're struggling for a loss - when you cheat on this diet you can gain back 6lbs of water weight overnight. But if you can keep the atkins bars to a minimum it's probably a good idea; the bars contain sugar alcohols which stall some people (including me). How many have you been having?

    Still, losing despite a cheat isn't bad at all! The reason cheating is such a pain on atkins is because, first you gain the water weight back, then you need to get into ketosis again to start burning fat. It's not like with calories where if you have too many one day, having less the next will balance it out. But you're back on the wagon and it sounds to me like you're doing well! TOTM plays havoc with a lot of people.

    Maybe try only having 3 bars this week and see if it helps?

    -Just adding also that you're already just about within the healthy range for your BMI, so your losses in general will probably be a little smaller than people with more to lose.
