    Re-starting Induction tomorrow.

    Ive been LC-ing for about 7 weeks now - well for the first 5 I was doing very well - not sticking to Atkins to the letter (eg, having roasted butternut squash, sweet potato, sweetcorn in my salad etc, and I know theyre not Induction friendly) and I was losing weight - I lost 5lbs in total, no bloating, no feeling sick etc.

    Then I went to stay with a friend for 4 days... My God, that woman eats like a pig. Anyhoo, its kinda thrown me off and Ive been trying to LC since and its just not working, I cant stick to it and no weight is being lost... I think my system needs a big kick up the bum and so do I :D

    Hi Mrs,

    You need to get back into ketosis to stop feeling hungry, which means no more than 20g carbs a day in induction, so that will mean cutting out the sweet potato, sweetcorn etc and really sticking to induction. After 3-4 days ketosis will kick in and you'll feel wonderful and not hungry. If you can be disciplined and lower your carbs, it will really benefit you.

    Good Luck. Jayne

    I think you need to go clean and green for a while. Just your chosen protein and green leafy veg. It will really give your weight loss a boost and will get you back into ketosis.
    Good luck, keep posting. :)
