Hi and welcome, to all our newcomers!
As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

So happy to see you here!! You'll love it!!
When I started Atkins I was too sick with type 2 to do less than 60 carbs a day. I also had some carb flu. As I felt better from lower blood sugars and tons of fluid retention leaving, I started doing 2-25 carbs a day..........with a few slips! I don't worry about those slips anymore. I just won't quit!
Now I see my weight coming off easier and my carb cravings are gone!

I do Atkins BUT I count total carbs not net carbs the only diff in what I do.
This is the link to the Atkins website. even tho I dont fully do it the atkins way anymore I do still eat from the atkins food list/eat. I just count carbs different than they do.
Watch this about the atkins program.
