    It IS surprisingly easy. And it feels good! Way to go -- keeping track of your blood sugar! You must have done a fabulous job of your first day to lose 5 pounds!

    And you are wise to realize that of course it is just excess water. As your body exhausts its glycogen stores and the water associated with it, your weight loss rate will decrease to a more sensible rate. THAT weight loss will be FAT that is lost! Please note that should you fall out of ketosis, your body will replenish its glycogen stores, and you will regain water weight rapidly.

    Best of luck to you!

    Congrats! If Atkins/Low Carb is suited to your body, you will find you soon get in the groove and that groove will help you keep on going. I find that the lack of certain carb foods themselves quickly begins to eliminate cravings for them. I have found it easier to not add them back in the long run. I also never eat carbs by themselves, always with a solid protein meal. I feel the protein 'anchors' the body's response to the carbs. But that's all for later. Happy Induction Phase to you! emoticon
