kpw, thank you for the links in my question post. I'm starting to see where this diet is going. I'll pick up the book on Friday, when I get paid. Really this gang as given me enough I could probably start right away. I'm just very nervous about giving up carbs for 14 days. That seems a little scary to me, considering that's what I mainly eat. I remember when everyone was hooked on the whole atkins thing how tired and cranky they were. Will I have those kind of issues for the first 14 days? Or will it only last a couple? I think I will start on Saturday just in case, but let me know if anybody did or didn't have problems.
