    Everyone on here talks about the fairy coming, well ive had mine for some time now and according to atkins i have not stalled properly as i have lost inches. Where am i going wrong? Im drinking my water, i eat to induction with the exception of half an onion once a week (or fortnight), i dont drink, cut ot citrics, ive not cheated and yet my scales seem to be stuck when i stand on them (not when hubbie does, so they are not broken). I think my big fat fairy is a liar or really doesnt like me. Sorry guys but realy needed to have a moan as its getting me down again.

    Yes i do when i remember and so far ive not had any problems, only to look at citrics as they can make people stall so i gave them up completely and have cut back on cheese as this could be another staller

    if you are still losing inches is it that critical the weight loss aswell? (sorry even i know the answer to that one!) are you maybe doing exercise and building the fat into muscle therefore losing inches and gaining.not losing weight???

    i havnt wii fitted for a while, didnt eat for a couple of days coz of bad tooth. maybe only getting about 12 carbs in on some days.
    hardly ever eat brekie. i do try and post my daily eating plan but it always changes!
    ive got £35 of food coming from the low carb site. so at least i can eat a breakfast bar on the way to school! was totm last week with everyone else so not that.
    maybe its time to calorie count with it.

    I started yesterday but some items are not very clear on there or arent on there at all. Last nights dinner came to 29g carbs but that has done 3 portions and i had a small one.

    So im hoping Jim. Its been a month those scales have stayed the same. Well ive fluctuated a lb. My mum came over yesterday (while i was in a total mess cooking) and said she can really notice it now and my clothes are bigger but im not measuring. Maybe i should drink more. Im having about 2litres a day, which according to that info Caz found is half a litre under what i should have. I'll try that and see how we go.

    copied from another forum

    Atkins also promotes the use of L-Carnitine: 1000-1500mg daily to aid weight loss. He says L-Carnitine can help break up a weight loss logjam (stall) AND help nutritionally deficient overweight people get into lipolysis and ketosis. He also suggests Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) - says he often prescribes to people over 40, usually in a dose of 100 mg per day. Says it works in collaboration with L-Carnitine (& Chromium) to mobilize fat.
