Thoughts to ponder

Just realize this diet is forever.  What tastes good enough that is worth the weight gain?  There are low carb variations of almost everything, sometimes even multiple variations.  This way of eating is easy once you find replacements for your favorites.  I cheated twice in a week (one cheat led to another) and it made me gain 4 pounds.  The time I spent losing that gained weight, I lost time on my weight loss.  Think how good you will feel with that weight gone! It will allow you to do more activities, wear more fashionable styles, gain confidence, lower your risk for cancers/dieses/illnesses/etc - in turn, increasing your lifespan, which will also allow you to spend more time with friends and family. It's not always initially easy starting something new, knowing you have to be committed, but give the Atkins diet a chance and some time, it will be worthwhile.

  1. You're right that there are great products out there if you want to follow whatever plan you're on. I think the best thing going is that every food has the nutrition info on the label so you can know where you stand. No guessing necessary. I'm successful on "moderate carb" and can still include whole fruit and vegetables. I've stopped counting fat grams for the first time but I evaluate every carb I eat. I enjoy your blog.
