Your mileage may vary. No one can predict how much one loses, since everyone is different.

We do know that the closer you are to goal weight the slower the weight comes off. Some people lose a pound the first week, others lose 10 to 15 pounds. This isn't a fast weight loss scheme. It is a way of life.

Talking ust my opnion

Based on my experience and several friends over the last few years, someone your size starting out could loose 5-7 lbs first week, 2-3 the next, then maybe 2 lbs a week after. But it does vary with so many things. The main thing is to stay focused and enjoy your new WOE.

This page could assist you a bit. After induction it shows a range, but it's more pointed towards finding how metabolically resistent a person is...it could help.

Josh, granola bars, rice crispy bars, and pasta are not on Atkins - they are a) full of carbs b) processed and c) full of sugar.

Tomorrow would be a great day to head down to the library and check out a copy of Dr Atkin's New Diet Revolution - you cannot do this w/o the book. I do not mean to sound harsh, but we are here for support and advice, we are not dieticians. You can really hurt yourself if you do not do this properly.

Please take the time to do the homework required.
Nat
