Wow

Great, Im not alone here after all!!

And yes, thin2win I am thrilled.

May, Id love to hear more about you, where you live, how you got on to low carbing etc.
Well done for starting, it really is a great wol, can be difficult at the beginning but gets so much easier with time unlike other diets which just get harder.

I have found quite a few low carb products here which I would love to tell you about if you want (and where to get them) it took me ages to find them and they came as rather a surprise. Perhaps not so suitable for the beginning as they are treats but...

Take care and lots of luck
Waiting to hear from you!

Harley

Smile a little bit about me

well, first of all let me say I really like this place and thanks for the replies. second. I heard of the atkins diet from my mother, although she didn't really do it. just read the book. I have to say I tried it a cople of times before but this time I know I'm ready to go all the way. I was discharged from the army 7 months age and traveled the US for three months, there I saw all the Atkins products and I whish we had those here. anyway, I gained a lot of weight during the army ( as a lot of girls do) but I was always (not always but almost always) overweight and did my first diet when I was only 14. I don't like the way I got to look, and I'm going to change that. along with doing the atkins diet I started to work out using the 'body-for-life' training method. I ordered some low carb products from the US through the net and my brother will bring them to me ( he studies there and comming home for vecation). thhat's it. that's my story. I didn't want to write where I live and things like that but I would like to e-mail you if you'd let me.

thank you


may

Hi,

I am newly on LC and live in Jerusalem.

I have a number of questions about surviving LC in Israel, so if you're out there and have been LC'ing successfully in Israel, I'd love to hear from you.

Specifically, does anyone know which LC choc bars are kosher and available in Israel?

Same goes for Splenda or Stevia...
S'pose it would be fruitless to ask about LC Hummus

Many thanks.

Hi there!!!!
I'm from Herteliah, and I've also come across someone else from TA, by total coincidence...
I've been on Atkins, now I'm Neanderthin, and I find it very confortable... Atkins was a little stressing for me...
Although I haven't lost a lot of wieght, as I'm almost at the end...
I have control over my eating and my cravings, that before Lcing were terrible...
Happy to know that we're not alone!!!!
have fun,
mamasiat

Default neanderthin

HI,

Harley and I have been communicating offline for a year and a half now and are still in one way or another attempting to do low carb. I was curious to know what neanderthin is, as I have never heard of it. Hope you are doing well on the "diet", it does and has worked for me!!

Talking neanderthin

Hi thin2win:
Neanderthin is a diet that it's idea is to eat like the cavemen use to eat... the philosophy is if you can eat it the way it is in nature
you're allowed...
that's why bread and rice for exp. aren't allowed, like beans that in their natural state would be poisenous...(would have to cook them to eat)
Any way, this diet is a little difficult 4 some people as milk products
r not allowed...
I'm doing very good with it ... I sometimes eat ww rice thins (which r not allowed) but I really try to stick to it....
I did Atkins at the begining, but I found it easy to want to eat other things....( to go off the diet)
The thing is to try and see what works best!!!
Let me know what's going on with you...
Have a good one
Mamasita
