Hi everyone I'm new here and hoping someone can help! I read an article in the Daily Mail today about "The Metabolism Miracle" - a program designed by Diane Kress, and I was wondering if anyone had tried it, or had any opinions on it. It's a three stage program. Stage 1 basically involves cutting out carbs completely for 8 weeks. I'm not entirely sure what stage 2 and 3 are (the article continues tomorrow!) but as I understand it it involves getting to a stage where you can eat carbs again as part of a balanced diet. I'm thinking of buying the book and trying this out, but I'd like to get some opinions first. I've never tried a low carb diet before, so I'm a little nervous about cutting them out completely for 8 weeks. Can you recommend any websites with recipes on? Also, I remember when the Atkins became popular there was a lot of press about how cutting out carbs was dangerous, so I was wondering what your experiences are of cutting carbs? Generally, I'd appreciate any information/advice about this system!
