    hi there,
    i was just wanting some advice please, ive done cd for past week and lost 9lb i stuck to it for 6 out of the 7 days ( i ate on one day loads!!) i think the diet is fab if you can stick to it but having done half hearted attempts at it since august i always end up eating and then piling on weight within days so im back to square 1:(
    ive been reading atkins diet book and just wanted to know what the average weight loss is per week?

    i realise that the weight loss will not be as quick as cd but as much as i try cd i can only manage 9 days at the most before i crack then start bingeing !!

    i need to do something about my weight and have been considering atkins but im so confused ( and a bit scared that im going to be eating too many cals after being on so few)

    a very confused Jo xx

    i would love to just find an eating plan that fit in with my life as i have 4 boys ages from 15 down to 2 & half and i want to set them a good example with my eating habits and not have to sit at the table with them whilst they eat and for me to have a drink it doesnt feel right to me .

    Hi Josie, there are quite a few on Atkins here who are ex CD'ers. I'll let one of them answer. For myself, I lost an average of 2lbs per week on induction, I did have a lot to lose though.

    Yes, I'd go easy on the tomatoes though, especially on induction. Did you read my stickie at the top Josie? It's calles "So you're thinking of starting Atkins"
