    First time on atkins, I'm now on day 4.
    Weird thing is I've had no head aches or feeling sick which I normally get with other diets. (I'm hoping I'm just lucky! And I am doing this right)
    I'm sticking to 20g everyday, but my calorie count has been roughly 2,000. I am in ketosis as I purchased the sticks and they were a definate purple.

    Although I have weighed myself and seemed to have lost around 3lbs so far, I'm just worried my calorie intake is to much. How many calories is everyone else having per day?

    I stick to my normal diet calorie intake which for my weight and height is 1200. If you are losing then you must be ok - if loss slows consider dropping it. It's still calories in calories out - I wouldn't lose on 2000. Hope that helps. Good luck

    Thanks. I came down to 1700/1800 towards the end of the week. I weighed myself this morning (weigh in for my first week is Monday morning) and I've lost 3.3kg which is 7lbs! So I'm well chuffed with that. I haven't cheated at all, which I don't think I've ever done on a diet before. I strictly stuck to 20g carbs everyday and was always in ketosis checking with my sticks. :)
