No, I haven't noticed any reactions to beans or quinoa - or to rice, corn, or potato. At least not health-wise. Any high-carb food can trigger cravings, and if I eat too many carbs, even "good ones" I will notice more hunger and more fatigue, so I still try to limit even the carbs that don't seem to cause any specific reaction.

Because beans and quinoa are high in protein, I'm a lot more lenient with them than with low-protein grains/starches.

No, I think that's fiction. I sometimes get tired of only eating chicken, fish and lettuce and take a break then go back on in a week or so and it's never been a problem.

This time instead of going back to eating "as usual" and gaining weight I switched to Nutrisystem, which I'v done for the past 24 days and though and I am down to 260 pounds.

I re started Atkins today. I did go back to the "induction" phase. I will miss my daily cookie treat but I have a new appreciation for being able to eat enough to feel full!
