    Another gain this week. Back up to 16st 5lb. So much for my goal of being 15st before uni.

    I have seriously had enough now, this has been going on for 3 weeks, I have been doing atkins for 5.

    Literally at my wits end

    I havent been exercising because I havent been well, gonna cut out scratchings

    trouble is without cheese my calorie intake will be very low because I have trouble eating large amounts of meat

    I drink about 3ltrs of water per day too

    I feel like I'm having lots of salt! but then I was never one for salty food before atkins. I have read the book over and over again :(

    thanks for your help though :)

    I am starting to debate exante now, feeling really disheartened with this, everytime i get on the scales I gain and I am working HARD. Food is starting to take over every thought and that is not healthy.

    But, at least I know I can maintain on atkins so thats a thought

    I agree that cheese might well be the problem. I am vegetarian but cannot eat as much cheese as I would like to, because even a little too much stalls me.

    I also agree that you need tons more leafy green veg and other low carb veggies. They are vitally important when doing Atkins.

    I replied to you on the Exante thread, too. Watch out that the sudden leap to 60g carbs a day doesn't make you gain and turn up your appetite. It did with me!

    Good luck with whatever you choose to do.

    Well today is official WI day and I have gained 5lbs this week.

    Marvellous

    I officially give up, out of my 5 weeks on atkins I have gained or stayed the same for 5 of them.

    Until I get paid in 2 weeks I will be using the rest of my protein shakes to substitute 2 meals and have a low carb dinner. I can't risk keep gaining like this otherwise I will be back to where I started.

    Thanks for all the advice, I hope I'll still be allowed back here :) xx
