|What Is Low-Carb Living?
I started doing Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution (DANDR) in October 2000 and discovered how easy it was to lose weight by low-carbing.
I lost 16 lbs during my first two weeks (the Induction period) on this program. I'm happy to say even though it's been almost 4 years, I'm still lowcarbing and can claim that I've lost over 90 lbs and 6 pants sizes! I've gone from being a size 24 to where I can wear sizes 12 to 14! My goal is to weigh around 135, and hope to some day wear a size 8 to 10.
I enjoy foods that are rich in flavor. I eat meat, eggs, cheese, veggies, fruits, dairy, and fats. Unlike low-fat diets, I don't have to count calories. Instead, I count carbohydrates.
The average American on a low-fat diet consumes around 300 carbohydrates and 1000-1200 calories a day. In a low-carb diet, I have about 30-35 grams of carbohydrates a day, but my calories are a lot higher ... about 1800-2200 calories per day explaining why low-carbers don't feel like they are starving themselves thin!!!
I hope after looking through my site, you'll agree that by making a decision to change your eating habits to a life-style of low-carb food choices, you can lose all the weight you need to, and then maintain that weight loss for the rest of your life!

Starting over ... again!
This month I will have been smoke free for 3 years ... a great accomplishment, but I've regained almost all the weight I lost! A week ago I decided to get serious about weight loss and emptied my house of all the foods I shouldn't have and stocked up on those I can have. I lost 4 lbs my first week ... that's a long ways from the 75 I want to lose, but I'm moving in the right direction! Join me in my journey ...
