I did Atkins for a long long time and it does work.

However, it is still very difficult to eat out anywhere due to needing next-to-no carbs.

What about trying low GI?

Or what about doing Cambridge on the 1000 Plan? That might help.

Her blog! :cool:

I did Atkins once. In the first two weeks you lower your carb intake to less than 20 grams. After that, you raise it slowly til you reach your CCL (the level of carbs you can eat and still lose weight). After the induction phase of 2 weeks, you reintroduce fruit, and you must eat your salad and vegetables, etc. I would recommend getting the book if you are going to do it, because it really does explain it much better than the traditional 'you eat no carbs' viewpoint. That's not true, and the simple method of doing Atkins doesn't have to be mega high in fat.

Good luck :vibes:
