    I am really struggling to eat now. Its not even that I am sick of meat and veg and wanting to eat carbs, I literally feel as though I could go for days without eating.

    Does anyone else have this problem? I feel like I am forcing food down all the time and I resent that a bit!

    I have ordered sero bars to help get some food in doesnt anyone else have any suggestions?

    This is a pleasant but annoying side effect haha

    I know what you mean. Some days I'm like that. It's weird after being a carb freak for years & you can't stop eating!! Try your best. Some days I can face anything then other days I could eat a huge mixed grill. I guess it levels out. xx

    I feel the same at the moment. Its great to not be craving and it makes me feel in control, but I find I just cant face breakfast at all. The only reason its ok at the moment is cos I on holiday and I can eat nearer lunchtime. But I think when I get back to work I might have a shake at breakfast time.

    I am really struggling to eat now
    to the point that I am gagging on food. My mum has gone out to get me some atkins shakes for today as apparently it was painful to watch me try and eat my lunch today!

    I am also getting lectured from all my friends about hw dangerous atkins is, what and being fat isn't dangerous? I really need support not lectures from friends who suddenly think they are doctors.

    :cry:

    Racheal, ignore your 'friends'. Atkins or any low carbing (it's safer to say that ;)) has been proven to be safe. Obesity &, especially type 2 diabeties is not safe. Jus tkeep that in your mind.
    As I said before Atkins does curb your appetite, but it will come back. Yesterday we struggled to eat, but today we've had mackerel & a huge mixed grill. One thing you won't be is hungry & wondering what you are allowed to eat!
    Relax into it & read as much as you can & enjoy the food. As you've said being obese is the danger.
    We all all behind you in this.

    Embrace this way of eating & watch the weight come off. xxxx

    I agree with Sharon, even now I'm on maint I still say Low carbing, that's acceptable it seems, Atkins isn't :sigh:

    Well I can safetly say that atkins has been the best food plan (I don't like to call it a diet)

    I am never hungry, never thinking about my next meal, I have energy and I am losing weight. Nobody is going to make me change my mind.

    I told my mum I was sick of having no support, so she has started reading the book and following induction to help me along which is really nice :)

    My sero bars arrived this morning so just tucking into one, I am going to invest in some atkins shakes aswell to help me out until I get my appetite back.

    Thank you all for your support :) xx

    Hi Rachael

    I've been the same - never been hungry first thing in the morning but get hungry later if I don't eat brekkie. But trying to eat lukewarm bacon and eggs on my 90 minute train journey just ain't an option (I've tried).

    Am going to give a soya shake a go tomorrow - Holland and Barrett do a 90% soya protein instant powder (vanilla) - one scoop = 0.28 carbs. Will try it made with water and report back :)

    I have spent today forcing myself to eat :( I am feeling really very sick. My dr has suggested I try a VLCD while I am like this and atkins induction when I want to come off of it.

    Will I still be allowed in here for support if I do this? I am hoping to be back on atkins after a week or so, and this is definately the plan I will follow for life. Ketosis and stress is just making it impossible to eat and I feel very low :(

    thank you so much.

    I have decided to use meal replacement with atkins style snacks in between to keep my metabolism firing and my fat intake up
