    Hi all,

    I completed my lipotrim weight loss regime nearly 3 weeks ago and for the first week i did low fat low carb as i didnt want all my glycogen stores to go mental with the amount of fat you need to eat on atkins.

    Since then i have done atkins induction my typical daily men is:

    Drinks daily are:

    500ml green tea
    2litres plain water
    1x250ml 'irish coffee' without alcohol and with one 'clicky' of splenda - caffeine free coffee, i have about 25ml of double cream in this coffee - i know thats a lot - but thats an irish coffee for ya!

    Daily menu:

    breakfast - 2 rashers of grilled bacon (no time to do too much in the morning!) (0 carbs)

    lunch - tuna mayo salad with handful of iceberg lettuce, one sliced raddish, a sixth of red bell pepper chopped, 1 spring onion, 3 cherry tomatoes, half a stick of celery and about an inch of cucmber. (approximately 5 carbs)

    dinner - swordfish steak with cauliflower cheese (sauce made with cream, english mustard and good handful of cheddar - this makes enough for me and my man) (approximately 4 carbs)

    dessert - sometimes i will have a MIM with cream and diabetic jam or sometimes small handful of berries and 100ml soy yoghurt (2.1 carbs)

    mim = approx 5 carbs
    yoghurt = approx 5 carbs

    i reckon about 14 carbs a day so even if i have underestimated the carbs i should still be 20 carbs or less a day.

    but i haven't lost any weight!!!! I have 1 more stone to lose and would like to get to target by xmas.

    should i cut out the desserts?
