I just started the 14-day start-up. I am really hoping that this is the answer for me. I got on a web site today that sold Atkins supplements for cheap prices. Is anyone familiar with the name brand supplements rather than buying individual supplies?
Hope to hear from another Atkins supporter.

I must say, I have heard so many things about this diet, but I have yet to try it. Several of my co-workers areon it and havenothing but good things to say. I am a little skeptical, though. I cannot imagine not having bread. I have made up my mind that I am actually going to read up on it as I really don't know enough about it to make an informed decision. I would enjoy any input or suggestions. I am at my all time highest of 280 pounds and am getting desperate. I truly am disgusted with myself. In any case, I welcome any suggestions.:angel:

hi, i have noticed there arent too many replies on this post, and i really hope that mine does not go unnoticed. :)
this is going to amaze you, but i cannot find the atkins bood anywhere here. i have tried everyplace from the library to barnsnoble.
i would really like to try this diet, but i have no clue the 'rules' how to start or anything. if someone could give me a rundown, how to start, what if any carbs you can/cant have i would be very greatful. i am at my all time highest weight of 350 and dont know what else to do.

I notice the problem is not people vistiting, but people telling me they dropped by.
I have been on the Atkins diet since June 19, I have lost 12 pounds.
I am inspiried to continue. I find the most helpful thing is to ahve ready made snack available if hungry hits. As soon as you start scrounging for food, forget it.
So anyone else having the smae success as me. I still have another 62 pounsd to go, so I don't feel even close to my goal.
I would suggest this diet to anyone. It is wonderful.

I am looking forward to making many new friends, if you need a diet buddy i am here.

well first of all, im sorry to have angered you carb lover. that was not my intention, i was just eager for the info. i dont see how you could get in trouble for giving the basics about atkins, unless you copied the info word for word out of the book, it looks to me like you were just explaining it. thank you because it helped me alot.

Why dont you come on over to the low carb thread ? There is alot of support there and some great recipe ideas too. Hope to see you there.
By the way when your looking for the Dr. Atkins book make sure your looking for the title "Dr. Atkins NEW Diet Revolution" it has a blue cover and it's the newest ones he's put out. It has more info then the older book....no changes in the plan at least that I've seen.
P.S. Maybe you could try buying the book from Amazon.com I bet they would have it :)

I too am a low carber tho not on the Atkins plan. I'm sorry that I didn't see this post earlier either. My puter time the past few months has been sporadic and limited and I too regularly post at the 3fc Low Carb section.
Would love to have you join us there. There's many wonderful, supportive and knowledgeable chicks that offer so much!
Hope to see you there but no matter what, best of luck!

I lost 7 pounds during the 14 day Induction phase (which is a lot for me to lose in that amount of time). I found the plan very easy to follow and after the first few days I didn't have any cravings for carbs at all! Unforturately I started slacking off and have regained some of the weight. I'm beginning the Induction phase again tomorrow. I hope to lose 15 lbs. by Labor Day.
A great low carb site is www.atkinsfriends.com you can get some really good information there.
Good Luck! :wave:
