I'm going to start Atkins on Monday, everywhere seems so quiet on here but I've been keeping an eye on your diary and have decided to give it a try for the first time. I've tried so many diets and I just can't keep the motivation as results are so slow so hoping this will work for me. I have about 3 stone to loose, but I LOVE carbs, pasta being my favourite so it's going to be a struggle. I am constantly bloated and feeling sluggish so hoping doing this and seeing results will keep me motivated!
I just feel terrible. I'm eating plenty of calories, enough carbs 30-35g, lots of healthy fats. I'm losing weight. I just lack energy so bad. I'm not sure what to do, as this has been 4 or 5 days. Which is why my carbs are up to 35g.
My husband is saying I should start eating 'normal again' but I felt truly awful before Atkins. So I'm hoping it will pass soon.
I hear ya, been the same myself. I put it down to a lack of vitimans. We are advised to take a vitiman tablet without iron ( If possible ) everyday in the atkins book. I started taking the ones from aldi and finally after two weeks of being exhausted I feel better. Definetly worth a try
Well I completed my first day... Does this sound right?
Breakfast- 2 boiled eggs
Lunch- chicken salad with 2 spoons of full fat mayo and a bit of the chicken skin
Tea- chicken cooked in olive oil, Cauliflower mash with butter and cheese and broccoli.
I also drank about 2 litres of water.
Although I think I followed it correctly yesterday is it normal to think you've eaten bad? Feels so strange using full fat Mayo butter etc
