Atkins Anyone?

I actually have that book. I think I will sit down and read it. (Bought it 2 years ago, LOL) I have a week before my classes start so this will be my last chance anyways.

i do defintally eat lower carbs. i have learned the advantage of that. the sugars in proccessed white starches trigger my hunger and sweet cravings. i buy the low carb pasta although the store i used to buy 'dreamfields pasta' at quit carrieing it. where are you getting it?!?! i use unbleached flours, eat unproccessed foods, lots of veggies and i eat leaner meats. i personnally try not to eat much out of a can, freezer ready or anything thats open and eat (except fruits). its good because you have to chew more to eat your food and i think eat less. especially for us banded folks- we have to chew the heck out of it to get the texture right!

I followed the induction phase of the Atkins diet for over a year. Actually, what we (most of us anyway) eat is not at all like the Atkins plan.

Low carb was just part of Atkins, about 60%. The other big part was hig fat intake, which was critical to the plan as he wrote it. (Unfortunately "Atkins" has become synonymous with "low carb", and people use it that way, not even realizing they're essentially ignoring half of the plan). High Water intake was another aspect, but not as stressed as the fat intake.

I'm sure there are some, somewhere, but I don't know any bandsters who go out of their way to add extra fats to their diet. Someone once said that the band is a medical way to stay forced to follow Atkins, and that's simply not a generally true statement.

Now Atkins aside, focusing on "low carb" -- not really. I eat low carb b/c I feel better when I do. And I try to get healthy carbs from Beans, whole fruits, etc. and avoid starchy carbs. But I'm no where close to being back on Atkins, even though my carb intake is what the Atkins plan calls for.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
