    Thanks sooo much I feel really energised and feel I can overcome so much temptation, I used to be a take away addict and had bread with every meal. I have 3 stone to loose and have never felt this confident about loosing the weight, I have tried everything in the past! I have Jst received the Atkins book and will read it cover to cover. :)

    Great, C-A. This is a fantastic way of eating and living, and welcome again to what may just be the very last 'diet' you will ever need.

    Reading the books is important, I think, to give you a good understanding of why this works and how to make it even easier!

    Also try The Atkins Community website.

    Good luck!
