Thumbs up We are inexpressably greatful to Dr. Atkins

Congratulations! I feel that same gratitude to Dr. Atkins. I was picking up some meal replacement bars last week and someone pointed out a competing low carb bar. I choose the Atkins Advantage bar not only because I enjoy them but because I want the Atkins organization to benefit for the good (good hardly expresses it) they have done. I suspect by the time Low Carbing has hit its peak it will truly be able to be described as a "Revolution"! The positive effects this will have on the population at large will only grow as word spreads of the success people like you and everyone on this site are having!
Keep up the great habits you've begun! You will achieve the 170 goal you have set. I have lost 28lbs so far and have little doubt that I will lose all I need to. The only thing I need now is patience!

King, I think it's great that you are doing something like this while you are still "younger". I myself am 24 and at 16 and under I had already tried dieting and failed miserably every time. But being on Atkins does feel so much differant to me, as you said. I wish you lots of success in the future and keep us updated!

I have thought about it but I don't know if I have what it takes. I get really into it for a couple of months and don't really see any results and then give up. It seems impossible for me to put on muscle. I dunno if I need to eat more (I get about 1.5 g of protein per pound) or what, but even taking creatine and whey I stayed the same weight. I was thinking of trying CKD but am a little scared of adding carb-ups.
