    Hi
    About 6 years ago i did atkins and had great rsults on it lost the best part of ten stones for reasons i wont go into the weight crept back on to the point i need to lose 7 stones again:cry:. The 1st time round i found atkins very easy and it also allowed me to do high intesity gym workouts. but i have heard serveral times that the atkins works great 1st time but is much more less effective 2nd or 4rd time around is this yet another one of the atkins myths ?

    Its a myth. I am on my second time around, and lost 9lbs on my 14 day induction.
    Good luck!

    I can't see why it would be any different the 2nd time round. Not that I'm about to test that though.

    Myth - 3rd time round for me and feel much more confident about it that before. I also know several people who it has worked for more than once, my DH for one.
    You will be fine.

    2nd time around for me too (and LAST I hope!) and it is much the same as the first. It is only harder because I'm no longer single so can't live in a carb-free house!

    in that case once a couple of weddings are out the way i may well revert to Atkins though increased food prices since i last did it may hurt a little more
