I am on my third day of Phase one and have lost 4 LBs!! I am very excited. I do have a question though. My book is pretty old and I am wondering if there are any differences between then and now? Is there someplace I can go to look?
I have been trying to follow the Atkins Plan for several years now and have had no significant weight loss. I finally decided that repeating the same thing over and over again was insane. I am still getting the same results. I have an old South Beach book but had never read it until last week.
I made the decision that this is what I should be doing and am feeling more comfortable with reducing the fats in my diet. In 1998 I lost over 50 pounds with a very strict low fat regimen. I like the way this plan is written and the fact that I am feeling more comfortable with the foods then the Atkins plan is making me work a little harder on this.
I love to cook and make most of my own food and there are many lovely recipes that I am dying to try. Yesterday I had horrible cravings and an absolutely horrid headache all day and was beginning to think I should switch over to phase two but the headache went away and after weighing myself I am ready to go on with one and try to make it the whole two weeks.
I have some questions about some of the newer products that I didn't see in my book.
Hood Calorie Countdown 2% milk it has 5 carbs and is lowfat.
Heinz one carb ketchup
Land O Lakes Fat Free half and Half
are these acceptable?
