Hi and welcome.
You will need to have more fat than you appear to be having. Good butter, olive oil, coconut oil etc. Full fat mayo is good.
On induction you need to have no more than 20g carb a day but not much less either. You also need to keep your calories up. You actually do need to eat quite well on Atkins.
Great to have you with us. Post often and get to know us all. :)

No nuts during Induction, unfortunately! And cheese and cream etc need to be limited. No more than 4oz of cheese daily, and no more than 2 tablespoonsful of cream. Some of us find that we can't have even that much as cheese stalls a lot of people, but only time will tell whether or not it might be a problem for you.

Keep your portions moderate. If you are hungry, eat, but don't gorge. Have 20g carbs per day in total and make sure 15g of these carbs comes from green leafy vegetables.

Don't go mad on the Coke Zero, either, as it can cause cravings. Drink water, black coffee or tea (or add a bit of cream from your daily allowance) or perhaps peppermint tea.

Good luck!

My wife sort of had the same problem. She wanted to lose just a stone, she followed the Atkins down to the last letter, however it seemed her body stalled...she lost 4kg in 8 wks.

She then went on the GI diet and lost the rest....and I've read about other people that it's not been as successful as they hoped.

Touch wood, I'm going ok at the moment !
