70% fat, 30% protein and less than 5% for carbs.
Thank you. I'm very frustrated. I've tried so many times to drop weight (didn't cheat) and have been unsuccessful.... :(

I do count calories. I have to or I overeat from boredom. I get in about 1300-1600 calories per day.

Even on this wonderful way of eating going from consuming 1000 measly calories to over 2000 you won't lose. You might want to scale back to around 1500 and up those calories gradually.

This is a riot. I did not realize this forum hasn't been active for a year. Oh well.

I have been doing the Atkins for 6 weeks. Lost 17 pounds and feel wonderful. Does anyone have any low carb dessert recipes they find successful? Sugar free jello gets old and would like to try something new.

Dessert idea
Hi, James,

One of my favorites (and it really gets your fiber up) is to take chia seeds, soak them in water (or unsweetened almond milk with a little stevia), and add a little cardamon. You have to like cardamon for this one to work, or you could use a few drops of vanilla or cacao. Let it all soak so the chia seeds reconstitute. A few spoons of that are very yummy.

Good luck!

I am not on Atkins but I am on Keto which is very similar, higher fat less protein I think is the big difference. Losing about a pound a day for 3 weeks now

Hi James,

If you still have a sweet tooth, go to this website..... (aka Active Low-Carber Forums). If you scroll down the page, you'll see Kitchen Low Carb Recipes...."Sweet Treats" for dozens of recipes from members.

Fitday vs.
Hi all. Happy 4th. I am wondering if anyone has noticed any difference between the fitday and the nutrition online trackers? I noticed for the same daily total there was around a 200 calorie difference. Carbs were different. Every number was different. Who do you think is more accurate?

Thanks for asking a subject.
Atkins low carb diet program uses a powerful life-time approach to successful weight loss. I will try to do it.
