Atkins Diet- how much weight loss is expected?!?

Hello, I have started the atkins diet today, SOOO far I am finding it really easy.
Anyway, my question is, how much weight is usually lost in the induction phase during the first 2 weeks?
I usually loose weight very quickly, even on weight watches points program I loose 2kg per week. Although, I am trying atkins for something different as I am finding it difficult to motivate myself at the moment and keep loosing weight and putting it back on as Iv had holidays, birthdays and a nightmare 2 months.

For anyone that wants to know, my current weight is 88.8kg, height 1.7m, and large athletic frame ( built like a bloke). Approx weight loss for the 2 week period strictly sticking to atkins induction program.

Thanks, all answers will be highly appreciated… if they are not nasty hehe

    Most people will see the scale move immediately, but this is due to the loss of water weight. I’ve heard of people losing 10-20 pounds in the first two weeks but it was mainly water; REAL weight loss will begin to occur after two or three weeks. You should aim for 1-3 pounds a week after the initial drop.

    *Edit*: I forgot to mention that I don’t really recommend using Atkins either. I have also heard of people experiencing problems while on it.

    I agree with Christina K. I did something very similar and had many inner problems, leading to four surgeries and nearly four months in the hospital (total).

    Here’s a good free “diet” which helps you keep on track:

    It can really vary, depending on your age, your metabolism, how insulin resistant you are, your food choices, how much weight you need to lose etc.
