WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Since I've started I hit a major plateau starting in august of 04 and going to November 1 of 2004. November I spent off Atkins eating whatever I wanted, including carbs. I put on a few pounds, but since dec 1 I've been back on it hard core and it has been coming off. It is as if I reset something in my metabolism, because the lifestyle is having an effect again
