Going straight from TFR to Atkins?

This is way in the future, but assuming I stay on LT TFR for another 5 weeks, I'm stopping as I will hopefully be at the top end of the normal BMI range. I still need to lose another stone or so to be well within it, but don't want to spend the money on the shakes, so I'm hatching a plan to go straight onto Atkins, so as not to waste my lovely ketosis.

Would it be possible to do this? Any pitfalls?

Last week I went a bit loopy loo and needed a break. I did 4 days where all I ate was meat and fat free dairy. For some reason it kicked me out of ketosis? I really don't know why? Still, I maintained over the 4 days.

I still intend to return to Atkins/dukan in a months time I'm pretty sure after about a week of adjustment I'd start losing weight again.

Were you eating a lot of sausages? They can contain carbs. And maybe your fat free dairy had fruits or sugar in them?

Nope, chicken, low fat ham (carb levels carefully checked) and a piece of steak. The only yogurt I ate was the fat free fromage frais.
I'm sure that my body didn't have long enough to get used to going from shakes to food though

The fromage frais (plain one) I had was 3g per 100g. I had no more than 1/2 a pot a day so that was 7.5g tops.
I ate no veg whatsoever so that was pretty much all the carbs I had each day, a few g more in the ham etc but not much.

I think it's total carbs Nat, but I haven't done much research yet.

They seem to count fibre separately in America but ignore it here.

Nick will know anyway, I'll just sit back and wait for him to answer...:D

LOL on Atkins it was all about net carbs (the ones that have impact on blood sugar) so if something was like 30carbs you looked at the ammount of carbs that were sugar, most foods specify on the nutrition...

Hi People,

I've done loads of research on atkins and I'am going ot move over to it next Friday, but keep the maintenace lipotrim shakes for breakfast and dinner, hopefully that should keep me in ketosis. I will keep all updates though, i can drink vodka and diet coke as well yeah yeah yeah. Got my 30th in 2 weeks so very excited.
