I look back on a previous attempt to do Atkins in 2004 and after the initial 20 lbs I stalled for 3 months. I didn’t know about fasting or limiting my eating windows and not snacking because none of these are addressed in Atkins. I also never increased my carbs above the induction phase.
I did not eat any additional fat so the fat I got was in the meat/cheese/dairy I ate. This should have been better, right? Less plate fat/burn body fat. Except I didn’t.
There was no limit on protein - just carbs - and I ate a LOT of protein. I wonder now if I am one of those whose blood sugar rises more than typical with protein?
With keto I don’t eat as much protein nor get sick of the food since I am eating a lot more fat, including my sacred BPC!
It was probably a combination of things back in 2004 and I had no support community like this one to help me figure it out.
