    I started Atkins last week weighing 11st 3lbs. I have lost 5lbs in my first week. I am doing the diet with my husband. We chose Atkins as its the only diet that suits us both.
    I want to do a diary with pics so I can see my progress.

    Hello and welcome, great loss for the 1 week. Atkins is so doable, great consistent losses and no hunger or cravings.

    Has anyone suffered from aching legs on atkins? I was awake last night with it and its driving me mad.
    Anyway today was an early fry up for brekkie as I couldn't sleep.
    Lunch was a smoked salmon and prawn salad.
    Dinner will be fish with a watercress sauce and asparagus tips and broccoli.

    Yes it's common in the very early days - you need a bit more salt in your diet and that should sort it out. It's just down to unbalanced electrolytes as you flush all that water out.

    I also take a chelated potassium tablet as/when I need it for Restless Leg Syndrome - but that's more to do with menopause (sigh)

    It was lamb shanks from Tesco and the gravy was part of the shank. I didn't need anything else xx

    Having more energy is a handy side effect of ketosis. Carbs and the insulin spikes and dips they produce make most of us sluggish.
