    Hi Linda and welcome to the boards love. It is possible, but I don't think you have enough to lose to lose that much in so short a time. Atkins isn't really a quick fix, more a life times commitment.

    Good luck with this, we both started yesterday :) I'm finding it ridiculously easy so far which makes me a bit worried that I'm doing it wrong, but my book came today so gonna plow through that now ;)

    Hi and good luck,
    I did this diet years ago without a book. I was just told to keep my carbs below 20g a day. I found my own recipes like homemade meatloaf and burgers with cheese, fried onions and tomatoes etc, delicious omellettes, chicken tikka and soured cream, fajitas with lettuce leaves instead of flour tortillas - loads of great food. The weight just fell off me and I never have felt healthier in my life. I'm starting again too and I've about 4 stone to lose. Here's hoping.

    Hi Broxi, sounds good to me love.

    May I ask a question? if you did so well, why did you go off it and gain the weight back. I ask this because I know so many who have done the same.
