    is the damn scale not moving???? I am so frustrated! I feel like I am doing something wrong- and perhaps I am. I have cheese and cream on a daily basis which I am going to reduce starting today. But it is just sooooo annoying! I really feel like breaking something today... Every morning i wake up with the same ray of hope that I will get on the scales and see a loss- but no every day the scales stay stuck on the exact same number- 83.3 kg. And the really annoying thing is that I am still in ketosis- i have checked with the sticks and my breath tastes really metally.

    Firstly I would suggest hiding the scales for a week & next stop cheese altogether... how much are you drinking water-wise?

    If you cut it out for a week, see how that affects your weightloss & then try & re-introduce it... make just shake it up a bit?? Atkins does only recommend 4 oz of cheese per day, thats not much really.

    I'm also in the middle of a stall & am trying to leave out some things plus also check that I'm not carb creeping too.

    It will move sometimes you just have to give it a bit of a shake up first. x

    do you think a tablespoon of parmesan on the chicken would hurt?

    Watch the cheese, it does stall lots of people. I rely on it because I am vegetarian but I, too, need to limit it.

    If you are having dairy as well, for example, cream in tea/coffee, then you need to add that to the total of 4oz per day MAXIMUM.

    I would try to at least halve the amount of dairy you eat. If that doesn't work limit yourself to 1oz cheese/dairy per day and see how you go.

    You want to lose weight as well as eat tasty food in moderate amounts. If cheese is gonna be a problem you might just have to accept that. I tend to have it every other day now. You may need to cut back to three days a week. A small price to pay for such a wonderful way of eating!

    All the best x

    I always read it as 4Oz of dairy produce a day. I have a problem with cheese, if I want to gain weight, which I do need to do sometimes, I just eat a lot of cheese and then I put on weight.
