Well, I've been stuck at the same weight for a couple of months now, and I've had it! I'm going back on the Atkins induction diet tomorrow......two solid weeks of eggs, meat, cheese, and salads
I hate it, but I've got to do SOMETHING to get things moving again.......I'm just soooo discouraged.
To be honest, I've been eating bread a lot lately---and I've noticed a rather significant change in my mood, energy level, and even my, um, intestinal function. In fact, I've begun to think I'm going to have to stay away from wheat products as strictly as I stay away from sugar, because my system has apparently become sensitive to these as well. So many of the effects are the same: increased gas, mood swings, less "get-up-and-go", and almost constant cravings.
Now, I didn't embark on this ambitious, 100-pounds-in-one-year effort to see it stall out six months into the program......I've resigned myself to the probability that I won't make it to 100 pounds off by Christmas, but I'd like to at least lose another 30-40# by then! I work out 5-6 days a week, 30-45 minutes at a time, so it's not being a couch potato that's got me stuck in a rut.......and by now, I should've gotten off the increased muscle mass=weight gain merry-go-round. The only logical conclusion is that I've strayed too far away from the program I started with, and I'll have to go slower, and be much more selective, when I get off induction and start adding back carbs.
Wish me luck........I'm going to need it! :uhoh21:
