If you check the team name you'll see that we focus on low carb as a long-term lifestyle rather than a short term "diet". Birgit's probably right about it being tougher to "repeat" every time you gain weight back again. Age also is a factor. The older you get, the tougher it is to budge the fat!

This time around, take your time, focus on making good whole-food choices that you can stick with for the long haul, and make this your healthy eating style for life.

And oh, some good recipes never hurt!

It's not uncommon for people to have more trouble the second time around.
My top suggestions for making it work this time is no Atkins junk foods (bars, meals, shakes), only natural foods and add at least 1/2 hour of exercise per day, ideally 1 hour. It does not have to be high impact, just walking fast enough to where you work up a sweat and if you can do it even 5 days out of seven your body will get so many benefits, most of all replacing muscle mass with fat, which is better than weight loss.
And try to blog daily on how you are doing, that's the best way to get support and input. Or continue posting in this thread. emoticon

I have done Adkins in the past and have done real good at it. So good that by last July I was referred to as skinny. What I would give to hear that again. I went off for about 6 months and have put on much of the weight I lost. I went back on about a month ago and can not seem to lose the weight. I know the program so I don't know what the problem is. Please help ready to eat everything good that I know is bad.
