Hi, my name is Vicky and I started atkins last friday (1/1/10). I have been sticking to the induction but seem to have only lost 3 lbs so far. I feel dizzy and sick this morning and thirsty all the time.
Am I in ketosis? I feel bloated and horrid and hope Im doing this right!!!!:confused:

Hi Vicky, sounds like Atkins flu to me. Many people experience that when first stopping carbs. I hope you are drinking plenty of water. and hang in there, it will pass.

Thanks! At least i know its normal.
To be honest so far it has been the easiest diet to follow. I have tried weight watchers (too hungry) and slimming world (too complicated) without much success. Im enjoying the food and not craving pasta or bread either (i used to eat a lot of pasta). I think the only thing Im missing is the odd glass of wine - think it will be worse this weekend. BUT..I will persevere with the induction and then maybe add it in later on. :D

Yes this diet is very easy to follow. This is why we all love it! My life is no longer ruled by cravings. Such freedom.

It varies from person to person Lorna, I had a lot to lose, and lost after the first 2 weeks about 2lb a week.

You need to identify why you have become de motivated Vicky, what's changed love.
