    No but I am struggling at the moment - can't seem to go one day without some sort of cheat :cry:

    What did you have with the chicken, fish and steak, any salad/veg? Did you have other Atkins allowed things such as mayo and cheese or purely the protein and what fish did you have???

    Sorry for all the questions but so desperate I might try this just to get back into ketosis then straight back on the packs! x

    Lexy my cdc tells me to go ahead and help myself to protein, i know some others on here may frown at that but i have really difficult period times! and thats when i fall down, so to keep in ketosis but to stop me nearing the carbs! i have protein- plain though, a bit of chicken/turkey breast, prawns, white fish, cheese is okay but high in fat. when im desperate and have had my shakes! as a kind of last resort, and im also happy to say it never really seems to affect my weigh losses! :) xx

    i think people have said before that they have done Atkins type food (carb free) for the week running up to SS....
    it must be a lot easier starting CD if your already in ketosis!

    A few weeks ago, I went from Go Lower (where I lost nothing but over £500!!!!) and really fed up I went to a very strict protein programme (Dr Stillman) which Atkins was developed from, just to see a change on the scales.

    I did this for a few days and then went onto SS. It was the first time I have ever done it without a problem - usually crippling headaches and hunger pangs. But as it says above, I was already well into ketosis, so no carb withdrawals.

    The only thing I would say is that there probably wasn't any loss of 'water weight' cos I was already in ketosis, and my loss in the first week was slightly less (7lbs) than usual with SS, but then I comfort myself it was all fat!
