    Hi

    Was planning on starting Atkins on Monday, but have now found out I have an interview on Thursday so wanted to know what the consensus was......


    1. I often find with new diets I have a breakout of spots from around day 3 or 4.....at my age :rolleyes: .......did anyone experience this with Atkins?

    2. Having read about the headaches and generally feeling rough after the first few days would you (I have not experienced these yet so can't say!) advise to maybe delay til Friday......would it be too off putting for me to perform well??

    Thanks in advance

    Yes, a lot of people get spotty outbreaks as part of the general detoxing of carby rubbish. I certainly did!!!
    Perhaps you could just eat very healthily until Friday which would also help you slip into ketosis that little bit easier?

    I would not suggest doing an interview with atkins flu- altho not everyone gets it, not worth the risk! Starting friday will be soon enough and plenty of time to plan. Start cutting sugar down/out and that should make the transition when you cut out rest carbs easier!

    Start on Friday, you'll have the whole weekend to lay around & feel rubbish. then should be feeling better by mon/tues.
