    Hi everyone. I am back on good old Atkins to shift a few pounds from the summer, andstarter tuesday last week. Have done well, stuck to it and the sticks put me in firm ketosis all day. Trouble is, since started, I have actually gained 2lb! I hope it is water and my body is rebelling but for someone who uually manages 3lb off in the first week it is quite offputting. Anyone got any ideas please? Thanks

    Hi Kikuka, what diet have you been on? But I'd guess it's water weight myself.

    I notice that you don't have a lot more to lose now, I suspect that may be part of it as well.
