    Ive enjoyed the way of eating but it's time to admit Atkins just doesn't work for me and i can't stand the thought of fat fasting so i've decided to go back to slimming world. i'm going to do the original plan and introduce carbs slowly. since i've not actually lost anything in lbs or inches in the 4 weeks i've been doing it, am i libable to see a weight increase?

    I weas reading about switching from low carb to low cal last week (I know it is not quite the same)....It aid your body would stall in loss for a week or two. Which is just holding onto water. And then you will start to lose weight. That is how I understood it anyway.

    Good luck with the switch xxx

    Thanks Fuffs, i guess a few more weeks stalling won't make much difference and i have a few valuable lessons to take with me from my short time on Atkins. so i have no regrets from giving it a whirl :)

    Good attitude to have xxx

    It should not take very long to start losing. Just keep the positive attitude and all will be well. Keep your water intake up to shift the water :)
