When I was diagnosed pre-diabetic in December, I felt I really needed to start Atkins, but I just couldn't stick with it, maybe too addicted to sweets to do it.
But... I did lower my carbs to about 80 g/day, then 60 after Christmas, and was doing calorie counting, and LOTs of exercise. The weight was coming off, but so slowly. (8 lbs in 3 months)
SOOO, last week I went down to about 30-35 g carbs. Not true induction, but this allowed me to keep on with soy and some milk and yoghurt.
Wow, what a difference. Have lost 2 pounds already.
And not really craving more carbs. Not having difficulty sticking with it.
I made my plan and its not a struggle.
Anyone else have to go toward induction slowly so they could stick with it?
