    Great comments in the Atkins thread on the main boards! You're a low carb warrior, I love it! I totally agree with you about the studies--one can find a studies to support most any claim you want to make, so what matters to me is what actually works and feels good for me. I had similar experiences to you--followed prescribed diets to the letter, tried a commercial diet program (Jenny Craig), tried working out and eating healthily from all the food groups and watching calories, fat, etc. I had relatively small losses and then gained back. It was only when I concocted my own "paleo" diet (I knew nothing of paleo/primal at the time) and combined it with the same sorts of exercise (frequency and type) that I lost 70 lbs. So whatever Dietician Debbie is on about doesn't actually work for me. It's a good theory, and I'm sure it works great for lots of people, but not all of us. Furthermore, I heard SP recommends 150 carbs/day for diabetics....? emoticon

    Hello, I added you as a friend as I enjoyed your post on the thread about carbs and weight gain. I've recently seen the light and converted to a paleo/primal diet, and feeling happy and much better physically as well. Thanks for the great post! emoticon

    Thanks for your positive comment on my recent post. I am very happy to have lost 22 lbs in less than 7 weeks. Glad you could see the postive side of Atkins. In fact, when I looked at your page, I became aware there is a low carb blog to follow.
