Started yesterday. Does this work?
I've been dieting and excercising for 7 days. I was counting calories, but I read a few books, and decided that I wanted to try the Atkins diet. I have not lost one single pound yet, in 7 days.
However, I just started the Atkins thing yesterday. I stopped counting calories (although this bothered me a bit,) and I stopped counting fat, and I just ate meat all day long, with no carbs. Bacon, and crab legs, and steak. A lot of steak. Today I've had bacon and nothing else. (Need to go to the store...)
After 6 days of counting calories and fat, switching back to eating butter scared me a little bit. So I'm wondering, does this really work? I read the books. I read the sucess stories. But I'd like to know how it really works for real people in the real world.
