G'day Dave. I'm still here.

I think (and hope) that our Aussie members are happily joining in other parts of the board, and are spending less time wondering about local products. Who knows?

Meanwhile, congratulations on the fabulous way you are losing!!!! 113 pounds is nothing short of magnificant!

Thanks Roz,

You've probably seen me around here for the last 4 years or so.
I only really committed to my plan last July.

Now I'm a total believer!

I check in here every night, but no one is ever here. I was hanging in Meat and Eggs, but I wasn't losing on it. So now Dr B is the way for me.

If you are doing atkins, the advice is always the same.

Buy the book, read the book and follow the book.

Nobody is doing Atkins, if they don't do this.

It's a bit like saying you are on Weight Wathcers but you have never been to a meeting. The book is very important.

Try to eat whole foods all the time.
Watch your intake of cheese - follow the book for the limit.
Don't eat the Atkins brand products or anything with a net carb count if you want to loose weight. They are fine on maintenance.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the response Dave. I was going through a bit of a down patch but I decided that I wasn't following the Low Carb Made Easy plan properly so it would make sense to commit to that and see what happens.

I also went for a run and ditched the coke zero and it's amazing how I'm already feeling more positive.

when you say don't eat anything with a net carb count does that mean veggies too?

Great results Dave. I think you will find the fad status of Atkins is on the decline and it is now regarded as old hat. Not so much negative media comment these days as it has become a tad boring to the press as a lot have moved on to the next diet revolution. The books are being discounted and my local health food shop recently had an advert in it's window allong the lines of 50% to 75% off all Atkins products. You also hear a lot more stories of converts saying it does not work long term. It's great it is working so well for you as it does for many others. Low carb and plenty of walking works for me.

Janie Welcome to the forum! I think what Dave meant was no pre made products with sugar alcohols and fancy subtractions in the adding of carbs with the little labels on the front saying "ONLY 4NET CARBS" when it's really full of rubbish

oh thanks for that! and I'll be hanging out in this Aussie section frequently, I am loaded with questions!!!

I don't think Atkins is dying in popularity, Ijust completed that survey thing and Atkins people were in a large percentage compared to all the other low carb plans.

Hi to all the ozzie lcers. Where do you all live I am in north Queensland...yep hot hot hot. I have just started again today after losing a fair bit a few years ago but due to a bad fall and diabetes I fell off the lc wagon and put on heaps of weight. Now it is a matter of do or die cause if I don't shift this weight I will die. Glad to find a place where we can talk about lcing in Australia cause I haven't even heard of some of the stuff they talk about lol.
Anyway just wanted to say hi and hope to catch up with everyone soon,
cheers
wendy

Hi Dave, I'm still around too! Hanging out a bit in the Journals and Exercise sections of this site. I come here to check in and see if anyone has posted or if I want to ask something location-specific.

I agree Janine, I don't think the lc-ers are dying off, I just think the fad-ers have moved onto the next fad. The proper lc-ers are still around but because they eat grocery/whole foods, the buying power is not recognised.

khesan, good to see you here and doing something about your health issues. Looking forward to checking in with you
