GinaLeanne......

"A wide range of foods" was submitted by Karen (you can check out her journal). What she was referring to was eating tuna, chicken and beef all on the same day. Karen feels that this is something that will make you stall.

I'm not sure what you are talking about when you refer to the meat and egg fast so I couldn't answer the "WHY" of why people do it. However...I'm not sure that going on such a fast as a preventative measure, is a good idea. In DANDR, Atkins warns that the fat fast is only for people who are truly weight loss resistant.

For me, nuts cause a stall more than anything. I try to avoid eating them by themselves, like a snack. Sprinkled on something seems to make them easier for me to have.

It took me forever to give up splenda. I had hit a plataue (sp)(4wks), and I said lets see what happens if I drop it. Well, I started loosing again within 3 days of quitting. When I first started LCing I could eat everything allowed and would loose a lot of weight. As I get closer to my goal I notice there are some things that just slow my process (cheese, pepperoni, salami).

For me:
Low carb ice cream causes the biggest stalls, since I have no discipline and can't eat the 1/2 cup portion size.

I would say splenda and anything too salty will definitely cause stalls >
