I tried to do Atkins for some times, and even though it did not work for me, I lost some weight at the beginning but not energy whatsoever.
Since saturday I have been counting calories and exercising.
I keep my calories to about 1200. I drink a lot of water. I exercise (or try to) from a long time ago.
My menu these days have been something like this
breakfast: 1 fit and light yogurt , 1 oz whole grain cheerios, 1 cup of fat free milk
snack: 10 grapes
lunch: salad and one vegetable , steamed with some olive oil or South Beach dressing (good fats and no sugar), 4-5 oz lean protein (such as salmon or chicken breast)
Same for dinner
I use splenda for my coffe and I eat sugar free jello (20 calories as dessert).
This couple of days I have not been very hungry and today my stomach have been making a lot of noises
and going to the bathroom (#2) a lot.
Any input would be appretiated
