Umm...it goes a bit further then that. If you have been doing a straight atkins diet, your thyroid levels have dropped as well as leptin due to the lack of carbs for so long. Looks like your in need of a refeed.
65/25/10 C/P/F for 1-1.5 days. At maintenance or 500 cals above maintenance should treat ya right.

Thyroid levels drop mainly because of overall calories.
It your levels have dropped significiantly, it will take much longer than 1-1.5 days to get levels back to normal.
My question is, why are you doing atkins if your weight training? Its a bad mix.

thanks i had only been on the atkins for about 5 days when it started initialy and now is my seventh although i have stopped it had a little binge and a beer due to the euro footie being on .
But i was trying to cutt i was going to do atkins diet for 3 weeks and then hit the mass gaining for a month or 2 and then cut for a couple of weeks. The main reason was i had a bit of flab around my belly my 6 pack had totally disappeared and some of my jeans even failed to fit and i had to walk around witha couple of buttons undone although my weight and strength was up significantly since i first started about 6 months ago i defaintely wanted my waist back.
but the main reason why this diet went totaly wrong was my work its real hard to sneek in little 5 min meals and it just went downhill from there missing 1 meal and then 2 and 3 and so on.
thanks for your repllies guys its much appreciated im going to quit the body building for the moment just to much to deal with work im lloking for a new job anyway my work is blatently racist but i cant just quit into unemployment but i will definately seek advice before hitting a cutting diet again
