WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE LOW CARB / ATKINS: Lost 65 lbs on Protein Power about 2 years ago. Then sold my house, quit my job, moved half way across the country for a new job, etc. Gained half my weight back, tried something else. You get the idea. Have decided to return to an approach that has worked well for me previously. The program I'm following is called Four Corners (50 grams net carbs, 25 grams fiber, 50% of fat from monounsaturated sources, and probiotics daily).

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I lost 55 lbs on weight watchers once and 65 lbs on low carb. Clearly I know what is required, it's simply a matter of doing it.
