Dear All

I have lost about 16lbs on Atkins over 2.5 weeks - for the last 10 days
however I have lost nothing, my weight goes up and down by 1 or 2 lbs and
that's it! I don't cheat, I have been eating either fried sausages, Quorn
sausages, bacon or Atkins bar + Atkins shake (5 carb total) for

breakfast -
salad and tuna/chicken with various Atkins friendly dressings for lunch &
meat/chicken/fish/Quorn with cauliflower, broccoli, mushrooms etc for
dinner. My only indulgence is tea (2 or 3 cups a day, decaffeinated with
Splenda and a drop of semi skimmed milk).

I have gone from a tight 36" waist trousers (pants) to a comfortable 34"
waist - I just want to get rid of my fat belly and floppy man tits!

Another
28lbs at least...

My diet hasn't changed but I have gone from losing about 1lb a day (up to
16lbs) then nothing for nearly 2 weeks!!!

What am I doing wrong? Or not doing right?

Thanks in advance...

Oh - I did see some tablets in Boots (major UK 'drug store') that claimed

to
help for those that have reached a plateau - they are quite expensive -

any
good?

Ric

PS I have only posted a few times - but this is the BEST most supportive
newsgroup I have ever used!!!

Try eating less and doing some exercise.

Quorn is a brand name for different types of meat-style products made with
mycoprotein. (Chicken-style patties, sausage-style links, etc.) It started
in Europe but is now available in the US too.

I had the problem of not eliminating enough because I wasn't getting enough
fiber from my new diet. I started taking sugar-free Metamucil to help my
fiber content, and it did a few wonders.

Don't do this just to lose weight. Do this to improve your health and
lifestyle. In the long run, you will be able to control your weight, but
don't expect instant miracles. Do expect an improvement in your overall
well-being, and enjoy life a bit.

Without chocolate.

Oh dear, you were obviously unable to read my original post properly, but
stick with it, reading is a skill worth acquiring! I probably exercise more
than you!
