I have been with Atkins for a mere 26 days. I have to say this change of WOE was the wisest of my life. Not only am I losing weight but I feel great! I have 100x more energy then I can ever remember! My meals are very satisfying,I'm not constantly hungry, I sleep better at night, I don't have half as many aches and pains, headaches are gone and yes I can even dodge the cold that is striking everyone around me.. this list can go on and on.
I think before a word is spoken (or typed) some people actually need to put forth an effort and research this a bit. Buy the book and read it!!! What can it hurt? If anything it will change their lives for the better as well.
