    I was like that too. It is hard, but try to eat something & drinking lots of water is good. Atkins does curb the appetite & it does come back, just not so much.
    Hope this helps. I'm sure some one can give you better advice......JIM.. where are you? ;)
    He'll know, believe me x

    I'm here.

    Yes Atkins can cause you not to feel hungry, it's because you are eating more protean and that makes you feel fuller.

    I'd cut out the snacks first and see how that goes, if you are still not hungry at meal times then cut down on the portion sizes.

    I don't have snacks b'coz I just don't need them... make sure you eat 3 times a day tho as yr body needs to keep the fuel coming in to burn the fat!!

    I find I have some days where I eat like a bird & other days where I'm eating for England!! Go with what yr body is telling you & don't fear eating too much if you've had a row of days where you haven't eaten much!!

    Just don't skip meals or you'll do yourself no favours. xx
