Supporting you in these phase, by popular request, here are the answers to common questions about Phases 2 and 3, where most people lose the majority of their excess weight.
Why has my weight loss plateaued?
Different people respond to Atkins differently. Some people lose weight consistently; others do so in fits and starts. Review the course for the phase you're in to ensure you're doing everything right. If you're still in the first few weeks or months with lots of weight to lose, you may have increased your daily carb intake too quickly. Drop back by 5 grams and, after a week, another five, if necessary.
Are your weight-loss expectations realistic? If you're in Pre-Maintenance, you may have reached your body's natural weight.
Another possibility is that you've exceeded your Carbohydrate Level for Losing (CLL) and prematurely stumbled upon your Atkins Carbohydrate Equilibrium (ACE), where weight stabilizes. In this case, you'll need to reduce your carb intake by 10 daily grams (or possibly more) of Net Carbs to reignite weight loss.
If none of the above applies, remember that a true plateau is the loss of no pounds and no inches for at least four weeks, despite following Atkins to the letter. Refer to Lesson 2 of the Phase 2 course for specifics on how to break a plateau. Keep doing everything right and be patient. We promise that weight loss eventually resumes.
