Hi! New here :)

  • Hello! I just joined here, obviously, lol. I wanted to say hello to everyone. I have been doing a modified atkins diet, but the forum i have been posting on is very resistant to "modifying" atkins. I get it, I just need to make it my diet, not atkins, I guess, so hopefully, this place will be more welcoming about finding my own diet.

    I lost 6lbs in my first week of my modified atkins, hoping for a total weightloss of 60lb, but my first goal is 30
  • Welcome! Good luck and stick with it!
  • Hello there,

    Also a newbie here. Jean. Been researching about a new trend these days, the raw food diet. Seems to be effective and successful for a lot of people. There are also testimonials that prove its success when strictly followed.

    What do you guys think about it?

    LoveryGuy, you seemed to lose a lot of weight. Congratulations!

  • Hi & welcome to 3FC!
    Best wishes on attaining your weight loss goals.
  • Hi and welcome to 3FC.

    Good luck with your goals.

  • Hello there Onederchic,

    You seem to be a pro in this forum and I admire how you guys can help us hopefuls of being slim and slender one day.

    I would like to ask your opinion regarding the raw food diet because this is something I'm very eager about. I've seen a lot who have proved to be successful after adapting this regimen. Please tell me your views about this.


  • Welcome and good luck!

  • Hello LoveRyGuy and welcome to 3fc. I too have been following my own modified diet, which is probably closer to Atkins than anything. When anyone asks, I simply say , "I'm off carbs". When on this site I tend to enter several different groups and forums to read what people are up to, get some support and leave my 2 cents.
    Congratulations on your 6lb loss and good luck with your goal!
  • good luck
  • Hello Joplin,

    By modified Atkins diet, what does that composed of? How is it different to the original Atkins diet?

    Have you heard about the raw foods diet? I seem to be interested in this new dietary regimen. Would like to hear your 2 cents.


  • Welcome to 3FC, we are glad you are here and know that you will find a lot of support here.
