I'm a 56 yr old, Kiwi born, lived in Oz for 34yrs, married, mum with a 30yo recently married son and 28yo daughter + 2yo g/daughter who is the light of my life.
I've known about Atkins since the 80's - still have the very first book Dr Atkins wrote, but got all 'twisted' about the 'danger' of such a 'diet'!!! Hah - what about the 'danger' of all the weight I'm carrying around?
Now, with SO many low-carb diets around, I thought why not go back to the originator and learn from him. A friend just started another 20cho/g a day diet, but it cost her AUD500!!! She is doing so well, I thought "get to that Atkins site and educate yourself - he's been talking about this for years". So here I am :-) !!
My hubby has diabetes in his family and I have heart and stroke history in mine, so we are walking timebombs.
Anyways ... I started on Monday November 1st 2010 and have lost 1.7kg to date ... ketosis has well and truly kicked in and I FEEL GREAT - I'm on my way.
