    I've done quite a few diets before and the only one that seems to work for me is the Atkins! I'm not hugely overweight really, I just need to lose a stone for now but I'm finding it so difficult I'm just craving everything at the moment but then I feel miserable when I do eat badly. Anyway, last time I was overweight I did the Atkins diet and it worked wonders for me and I was so happy (I've put all the weight back on and more). I've lost my book and I'm in the induction stage-have been for 2 days. I've been sticking to 20g of carbs because I can't remember how many I am allowed in this stage. Could anyone remind me please? Also, did anyone else find exercising extremely hard when in the induction stage?- I get all headachy and weak. Anyway, I'm really sorry if i sound like I am being a tad moany and complaining but I'm working by a lake at the end of June for 6 weeks and at the minute I have no confidence to get into swimwear and frankly just don't want to go...butttt there's no use moaning if I'm going to do nothing about it, so I've decided to start now! If any one could tell me how many carbs I should be eating, or even any tips for the induction stage (it's very hard!) then it would be much appreciated :):):)
