    Atkins with an eye on the calories
    Hello all

    I was talking to someone yesterday who asked about why I like this diet, and I thought I'd post the answers here as it made me pretty happy! Here goes:
    • I feel less hungry than on any other diet
    • I now have no stomach problems at all - IBS has disappeared
    • It's a great diet for eating out - I can have seemingly 'normal' meals like steak and salad for business lunches
    • Testing with ketostix is fun; it's exciting to see when they go pink!
    • I have been able to enjoy so many tasty foods - nice cheeses, salami, parma ham, prawns with mayo...
    • I have rediscovered love of a good steak and bearnaise sauce :D
    • The first week loss (though a lot of it water) is very motivating to keep going
    • I don't have the 'rabbit food' feeling you get when calorie counting - no more carrot sticks!
    • The diet sets clear boundaries - great for people like me who find 'some bread' much harder than 'no bread'
    • And of course, I have the wisdom and support of the lovely people on this forum!

    I'm sure there are loads more I've forgotten, feel free to add x

    Nice idea for a thread. :)
    • It forces me to cook proper, fresh food instead of eating processed cr*p
    • I feel healthier, have more energy, get fewer colds or bugs
    • I have learned how to cook real food instead of just reheating convenience food. In particular, I've learned how to flavour my food and use herbs & spices.

    I love eating all the meats I love. Cooking them in every tasty way. I love not being ravenous all the time too. This is for life now!!
