    I met a friend of my sons' at the weekend, she is one of these fitness fanatics, and runs classes all over the City. Anyways, she was trying to force me to have a pudding (yes, one of those type ladies!) in the end I told her I couldn't as I was on a diet which didn't permit carbs. At that point she started to rant about how terribly unhealthy it is, how I will clog up my arteries, die from cholesterol poisoning and gain weight rather than lose. My son told her I had lost 2 stone, and never looked healthier and had bags of energy, but she still wouldn't have it. Then when we got outside she sparked up a cigarette.....

    Ah yes, the nay sayers. Sod 'em I say. I know it works, and I'm fitter and healthier than I've been for many a year.

    You were very patient with her. I would have just told her that I am happy doing what I am doing and it was open for debate.

    And as for smoking after that lecture, just goes to show how some people think that they know it all!

    I am with Jim, sod them!

    My cholesterol was high 6 weeks ago, when I went onto LL I had it taken again, it had dropped from 6 to 4.32 in two weeks, I have been on Atkins now for 3 weeks, had a test done again today and it is 4.31. Some people are very ignorant, they don't look into any of the facts, they make up their closed minds without knowing the details.

    I must get a cholesterol test though, the number of eggs I eat!

    People like that are more to be pitied than scorned really. I would hate for people to think I was the type to point a bony finger and wag it.

    Same here, prior to starting Atkins back in '02 my Dr was warning me I was going to die, Really high BP, dreadful blood tests, really dreadful. When I told him I wanted to try Atkins he went mad. We decided I'd do it but he'd monitor my results on a monthly basis. Guess what after 6 months he decided that maybe Atkins wasn't so bad after all, it seems not only was I losing weight, but my BP was dropping, my blood tests were improving dramatically and more importantly my heart murmur had gone. At my last annual physical I was classified A1. Hard to beat that isn't it.

    I probably would have laughed and said something like "Oh, now I get it!! You were being ironic - there I was thinking you were just being a witch"

    Why can't people just button it?

    Well done on the weight loss
