Hi all,

I'm Mee,

I have gained about 40 pounds..I had kept my weight off for about 6 years..up 15 down 15..but never have I gained this much weight..I changed my eating habits ..started eating low calorie bread..pasta again..carbs again..I thought I could eat them again with out gaining weight..for some reason I seem to be alergic to carbs ..I gain weight really fast..I could gain 4 pounds in a day..believe it or not......for years I would eat anything I wanted except for pasta and starchy carbs and sugar....I wasn't on a strict Atkins diet just low look at me ..I had to get sick and tired of being sick and tired.

This is my first day getting off of carbs..for I am a carbohydrate junky..the more I eat the more I want....Id love to get feed back from any one who identfies with me.

Hi Mee. Would you like me to move this post into the Atkins Forum of Low Carb Lifestyles? Or do you want to stay here with the rest of the UK chickies?

Hi Mee,

I identify with you totally - bread, potato and pasta really do it for me and i feel so much better since kicking them into touch - have been low carbing for a couple of weeks and am so much more alert etc. I am sort of following atkins but i do allow myself more fruit and veg as i have found out that i can cope with it. I had bread the other day and it totally knocked me out for the rest of the day, not to mention the weight gain.
