I achieved great success with the Atkins diet. I lost 40 lbs, and I looked great and was actually very close to feeling comfortable in a bikini. Some people just can't eat sugar and simple carbs and not gain weight. I have proven that by gaining back 30 of the 40 lbs that I lost over the past year. For much of this past year, I have been quite active as well. Diet is obviously crucial for me.
I feel really stupid, but am ready to get back on track.
Good for all of you that have stayed on track with Atkins!! Its a great way of life, and really worked for me.
