One thing I know for sure is that I am not eating enough vegis. I am drinking plenty of water, eating meats and chesses basically. Is there anything else I could be missing and not doing? Thanks in advance.



Yes..up your veggies....steer clear of processed meats, too high in salt....keep your cheese to a maximum of 4 ozs per day.
I keep my cheese to a max of 2 ozs per day. Atkins sets 4 ozs as the limit.

Welcome~!!

Hi! I am new to this site and boy oh girl do I have enough weight to lose. I have 100 pounds and I am starting the Atkins tomorrow. I need somewhere to talk, get advice, etc. I have a question already so if anyone can help it would be appreciated--how does a person figure out net carbs?

I am new here starting today. Is there any suggestions you have to help me out here?
I need to know what to eat here and how many carbs a day am I suppose to eat.

I need to lose over 100 lbs. here, now I know that is terrible to ever get that big in the first place but I did and now I have to lose it.

Thanks for your encouraging words!!! I am back after 3 yrs...gained my original weight back...woe is me...due to illness mostly...I have diabetes and that don't help!!! Carbs,sugs,and salt being my nemisis...as with most people I think. So I will continue to check out this site...looing for the good advice. I don't cook for myself anymore which makes it more difficult. I have people cooking for me and my fresh choices are limited. Meats are not grilled...I will have to work around this...again thanks and good luck...God Bless!!! Julie from Co

I just wanted to say, I doubt you will find anybody here judging you for needing to lose over 100 lbs. That is why we are all here, because of our need to lose a substantial amount

Good luck!
