Stall-ers

I was stalled for a while and found my two problems.

1. Not enough vegetables/carbs.
I had been doing 25g carbs for a while but many days I wasn't getting nearly that. I would eat mostly meat and not many veggies. I learned my lesson - veggies are important! I made sure to get around 30g carbs for a day and went from 234 to 226.5 in two weeks.

2. Splenda
I hate to say it, but I think that's bad for me. I may need to do more trial and error to see, but I avoided it the past two days after being stalled for a bit and went down a pound this morning. I'll miss the diet soda and candy bars, but oh well.

So if you're stalling out... those two things might work for you. They worked for me!

Reading all the other Atkins communities, the general consensus seems to be that a person can't stall from splenda. Maybe you are one of the unlucky few who does though :/ But instead of cutting it out right away, why not just go a week with adding the extra veggies and then see if there is change.
