Advice for those with "less to lose"?
by Mom of 2
I have followed your posts on Low Carb Friends and just discovered your website. It is awesome and I'm quickly becoming a fan.
I would love your advice on where I should start. I have been roughly following the Atkins Induction since the beginning of the year and have lost 6 pounds. I am currently 138 pounds at 5'6" and wear a size 6. My goal is to get my BMI back under 20 and my goal weight is 120. I was there about 6 years ago and thought I looked great at a solid size 2. You may ask, "how did you get there last time?". Well, I was 14 weeks pregnant with my son and suffering with extreme stomach issues. In other words, borderline malnutrition, which is not an option!
It sounds like you have seen many dieters over the years and I'd love to hear your advice to those of us who want to go from average to thin.
Thanks in advance for your time!
Thanks again for your time. My last qustion was so specific to me, and I don't think that is what this Q&A board was intended for. So, I'll try to ask a more generic version:
For someone with great bloodwork numbers and no known conditions, advice is needed to drop twenty or so pounds and get back down to a prior size. (Basically trying to lose body fat yet nourish the lean body mass) Would you start them out at Level 1 Restrictive or Liberal? When do you transition to Level 2?
I truly appreciate your advice!
