Help with Atkins plateau
Hi. I've never been to this forum before. I usually hang out in Kitchens. Maybe someone here can lend some advice or insight into this problem I'm having with Atkins.
Two years ago I did Atkins and I lost about 40lbs in three or four months. It worked wonders, stopped the cravings, etc., practically changed my life. I stayed on Maintenance with no problems until last Nov or Dec when we made some big life changes (bought a second home, moved, started a new vet school residency program, etc.). Then I began creeping carbs back due to the stress. Gained about 15 pounds back.
In early June, I went back on Induction. Took me almost 3 weeks to lose 5 pounds, even though I was doing everything the same as I did 2 years ago. I'm still doing Induction, I am definitely in ketosis (I check my urine almost daily), but I haven't budged from this plateau. (Last time I lost 10 pounds in the first week of induction.)
I guess my question is: How can I be in ketosis and not be losing weight? Any suggestions on what I can do or what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
