    I was thinking about giving it another go. I have a tendency to eat too much crap food during my main meal. Atkins would keep me on the straight and narrow. Cheats would be planned.

    ME! Lost 100lbs and maintained it til my Mom died and I retreated and ate like crap for a year. I've lost nearly 30lbs since Jan'; 14 of that was gained over Christmas!! I'd love to see 127 again, but....... I would really like to drop another 18lbs or so. One of my biggest motivators besides vanity for staying on the straight and narrow is my health. T2 diabetes runs in my family and I don't plan to ever shoot up insulin. Like most, I've done low calorie, starved, low fat, and they all backfired on me. Atkins/controlled carb is the only thing that works for me long term.

    This is the only thing that makes Atkins do-able for me! I have to have some sort of sweets. I love the mock Danish as well, for the same reason.

    Yeah, it's Goat's recipe. It's fabulous in a pinch! I eat it at least three times a week!

    I'm down 5 of the 7 I had regained over the last year.

    I read something interesting in The Body Ecology Diet where she talks about Food Combining... she explains that eating carbs requires one digestive enzyme and eating protein requires another digestive enzyme, but when you eat protein and carbs together, the enzymes neutralize so that you can't digest your meal. The author says this is partially why low-carb diets work so fabulously is that you're never combining your protein with carbs.

    I believe in low-carb and have lost weight that way, but I'm not consistent enough to call it my lifestyle.

    I lost alot of weight using the diet - but after awhile I got concerned about the amount of fat in meat products that I was eating. So I dropped them and am now sticking with non-meat sources of protein (like beans, tofus, nuts, etc.). It's been two years and I have not only kept the weight off but also feel alot better than I did when I was eating all those meat products (eggs, cheese, etc.).
