Thanks guys.

Right now I'm winging it because I can't get the book right now, and owe library fees so I can't borrow a book. I'm gonna get my mother to order the book online a.s.a.p cause she has a credit card. I definitely plan on reading the book but until then I'm gonna wing it.

I understand about the diet that it is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix, or anything unhealthy (like I feel Atkins is.) I know the first two weeks you cut out basically all carbs except for veggies, and then you slowly add back in good carbs that are low on the glycemic index, such as whole grains and etc. I've been doing that the past few months anyway, eating whole grains like whole grain pasta noodles and brown rice. It is really healthy, this diet. Just wanted to let everyone know that I know it is not a fad diet or a quick fix so I don't come off as a complete idiot attempting the diet without having the book yet. Lol.

I figure until I have the book, I'm doing a sort of form of the diet, which is to me, basically doing the phase one and then eating healthily like I've been trying to do in the past few months. I researched as much info online about it as possible.
