Jumping Out of My Skin

Today's Weight: 281 pounds

Today is day four of ketosis in my induction phase of Atkins, and I'm feeling better, although I'm still not fully capable of rational thinking. I feel like putting head through a window. Keeping my head from windows will be the order of the day.

I'll work on staying busy with perhaps a nice, long walk to keep me from losing it. I'm actually okay I think, but this transition phase to fat fuel is wild.


  1. Hey M. Hog,
    Another day of success! Transitioning is tough - my headaches were the worst part. For me, I didn't feel great after a week - it took a bit longer, but it got better all the time. However, I did not follow Atkins to the letter - I did lose weight slowly by eating less than 40 - 50 carbs per day. I ate more veggies than he allowed at the beginning. There are lots and lots of people who stick to induction and make it work for fast weight loss. I have morphed into more of a paleo plus dairy type - still low carb. I know I don't have much to offer here as I'm not a doctor or scientist (read Good Calories Bad Calories by Taubes if you haven't already for an education). I just want you to know I'm rooting for you!

  2. Best of luck with the atkins. When you've done it as long as I have you don't get the mood swings or feelings of rage.

    Hope it's still working for you.
