Hi Graciejean, you are more than welcome to join us. Most of us do Atkins, though I started with South Beach as my intro to lower carb back in late 2003. What made me switch? Reading Gary Taubes "Good Calories Bad Calories", where I realized that the fear of saturated fat is based on, well, nothing.

As soon as Taubes convinced me that sat fat was GOOD, not bad, I started Atkins and have never looked back. Most of us on the Lab Rats thread eat old Atkins, ca. 1972 (DADR), rather than the latest New Atkins for a New You. We seem to be particularly metabolically resistant (most of us are post-menopausal), so you might do fine with NANY. Either program is good, it's just how stringent you need to be for your body.

Come take a look at Lab Rats - though most of us know each other, we're always looking for new friends.

I haven't checked in here for a couple of days and I appreciate all the welcomes! Thank you.

PEGGY!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have all been asking about you and here you are! This is a fantastic site and we all feel most comfortable here. The people have been friendly, the moderator is funny, kind and professional and it's a world of difference!!!!

Anyone who wants to join us is welcome. We're in "Lab Rats on a Quest" in the Challenges/Buddies section. If you don't know us that's okay...we didn't know each other either at one time. We sort of found each other along the way.

I know everyone would love to see you again, Peggy. You have been missed. But we do what we have to do.

Thanks again to all of you who "reside" here and thank you for the welcome! It's a great learning environment here. You are most welcome to join us too!

Thanks! I have 3 kitties, one of which is orange and white too. He's quite a character and his antics are pretty well known.

Low carb is the only effective way I've ever lost weight. When my body is full of sugar and other carbs the little kid in me pouts about it but the truth is I feel so much better eating this way. Once I get a few days into it, it becomes SO easy to do and I get to eat at restaurants and live life without stress.

You are so right....we can't argue with our bodies. We can't tell them what to do any more than we can change our eye color. I finally got that through my head and so I told the little kid in me to be quiet and let the grownup take over. Man, it feels good!

Good luck to you on your journey. Please feel free to join us if you'd like.

Oh it's sore but it's now forgotten. Not worth producing cortisol over!!!!!

There is a wealth of information at this site and I'm just now learning all the different paths one can take. I'm Atkins-DADR, myself and am quite comfortable there. It's so freeing to see that we, as adults, are free to make our own choices without being chastised for it.
