Atkins Low Carbohydrate Diet - Week 22

... and the third week since I moved from 'Induction' to 'Ongoing Weight Loss'. The result was again not quite as good as I might have hoped for, but at least movement continues in the right direction! During the week I was on step 3 of the OWL carb ladder. I lost 0.4kg (0.8lb) and my weight is now (as at Sunday 16th November) 70.5kg, a reduction of 27.5kg since I began (or 60.6lb) - I now have 5.5kg (12.2lb) to reach my target of 65kg. Measurement indicators for the week:
- waist down a further 0.2 inches to 32.9 inches (total reduction so far 12.1 inches);
- hips down 0.2 inches to 40.0 inches (total reduction so far 8.5 inches);
- thighs no change at 23.1 inches (total reduction so far 5.4 inches).

OWL step 3 (max. 35g carb a day) allowed me to have small quantities of various kinds of nuts - almonds, hazelnuts, brazils and pecans, for example. As from Monday 17th November I moved to step 4 (max. 40g carb a day) and had a small bowl of strawberries and cream that day; various other berries are now allowed as well.
