Induction Water retention ? Feeling extremely bloated and swollen

#2
No never, I'm usually quite bloated and swollen but within 24 hours of of starting Atkins the bloating always goes away and my stomach is much flatter - that's why I love it!

The only time I get a bit bloated is if I've eaten something i shouldn't. Have you eaten anything illegal?

I do feel bloated/heavy most times but that's because I'm not used to eating so many animal products. That's why I'm incorporating 'fasting' with Atkins as well - that works for me.

PD - maybe do without the sodas, the citric acid in them can cause some people to stall.

Hmmm I'm generally ok on those but only if i have them in moderation. I have maybe two glasses of fizzy drink a day max and only a little sweetner because if I have any more I stall or gain weight and feel bloated as you describe.

different things affect different people. Maybe try cutting back on one thing at a time for while and see if it makes a difference to how you feel?

usually when i have very bad sugar craving, i make a chocolate pancake. i beat 3 egg whites, 1 tsp of cocoa beans powder, 1 tsp of cinammom, 1 tsp of ginger powder. then i add few tablets of sweetex in few tsp of boiling water. mix the powders and the diluted sweetex and add the beaten egg whites. poor the mixture in non-sticky pan and simply bake it.

it is absolutely delicious. and as far as i am informed, cinammon and ginger aid to weight loss even during low-carb diets. but the sweetex may be doesnt help me:(
not in ketosis yet!

I don't know how many carbs are in ginger and cinnamon but when I did this the first time I was having lots of herbs and spices and things thinking that they were carb free or low carb and then when I started gaining weight I looked into it and I found out that some of them were quite high carb, it was only a few here and there but over the course of a day it added up and put me way over my allowance.

Now I have to be really careful about what I add to my food :-(

Thanks for this advice. Actually I was concerned just for the same thing. The packaging doesn't say anything about carbs. I bought both ginger and cinnamon from westbury food and wine ( my corner shop). ImageUploadedByMiniMins.com1377358580.031116.jpg ImageUploadedByMiniMins.com1377358612.820556.jpg

No idea how much carbs are in a tsp of this particular brand. Will check with myfitnesspal.
