    You count carbs not calories...I'm 23lbs lighter because low carb works so I don't stress about the why so much and just enjoy the fact that you can eat so much food :D.

    Although a good place to start in understanding the science is the book because Dr Atkins explains the issue of excess calories and what he calls the 'metabolic advantage'.

    It's important to eat enough fat and calories so the body doesn't think there is a famine - it then kicks into great fat burning mode. I know it's wierd to start with - but it does work (and i can say that with huge confidence now :) )

    Dont be hungry, do eat regularly, lots of veg, enough fat, tons of water!
    Good luck

    It works for all of us here. I've had to but new clothes AGAIN today! You need to make sure that at least 15g of your 20g carb a day allowance is veg (leafy green is best) and drink loads of water. The weight just falls off. Honestly. :)
