Welcome!

Don't be afraid of fat. Cook with butter and olive oil. Eat until you're satisfied. Drink plenty of water. Reach out to Spark friends in times of need.

Yvonne, I have been having the same problem; because I have breakfast and lunch working for me I call this stage I'm going through 'Preparation for Induction'. I am feeling lighter although I have only lost about 2kg, but I am not hungry. Woubblie is right in that eating something that has high fat content stops you from feeling hungry. We don't have pork rinds in Australia, I do have cream cheese on celery and avocado whenever I can.

Define "hungry".

If you're having cravings but your stomach isn't rumbling and you don't feel low-blood-sugar woozy, then you're probably going through some carb withdrawl. The only cure is to tough it out for a couple of days and eat something very high fat in the meantime. Every time you spike your insulin levels by eating carbs you set up the roller coaster again for the next day. Can you munch on some pork rinds or something with cream cheese or some avocado?

If your stomach's growling, then just eat something that's on plan.

If you're feeling woozy, get some protein and some salt. The protein will help with low blood sugar levels and the salt will help with your electrolyte balance.

Dearest Team,

Have been trying to stay on Induction Phase but keep on falling off it by evening. Are there anyways that all of you have been successful at doing it that you would suggest. I know I have been extremely stressed which is no excuse but lately no matter what I have if I don't have a carbs I seem to be very hungry.

Hope you guys can give me some ideas how to fight myself at this need to lose for health as well as looking better and getting around easily.

Thank you

Hi and welcome!

I'm wondering, are you a fan of Dr. Terry Wahls? It's an amazing story.

Hello, I just joined your team and signed up for 1 year with SparkCoach. I will be using the Atkins diet plan with modifications as needed for good health. I currently weigh 330 pounds, have high blood pressure, have been diagnosed a few years ago with Multiple Sclerosis and currently spend about 70-80% of my day in bed. I am looking forward to getting healthier so it will be easier for me to get around and help with my fatigue and multiple other health issues!
Looking forward to the online support of SparkPeople !
