    not sure if anyone can help, but i had a baby 3 months ago and have now been on atkins induction a week.
    sticking to 20g drinking the water, doing a bit of exercise every other day.
    i have been in ketosis for 3 days now, but no loss whatsoever, normally the 1st week i lose quite alot...
    but i have had and still on a lovely 6 week totm, could this be the reason i haven`t lost even half a pound?
    please help, i love this woe but it gets so disheartening when nothing shows
    thanks x

    Are you still feeding your baby and if so, are you getting enough carbs to cover that?
    It could well be the totm stalling you. I wouldn't worry too much this early after giving birth as your body will still be adapting. Make sure you are having plenty of greens and water. Good luck and hugs to you and your little one.

    Could well be the hormones - otherwise if you're in ketosis you should lose. Cheese and alcohol can stall people but I wouldn't expect that in the first week. But ketogenic diets do mess with your hormones (well, all diets do to lesser or greater degrees) so if it's not right just now it might be worth coming back to later, or even starting off at a higher point in OWL for now.

    How much do you have to lose?
