Welcome back, Anne.
Your previous posts indicate your had side effects last time, is that what derailed you or something else? The link I posted before included ways to overcome the more common reactions...be prepared this time and you will get through them. Do you need more information? Maybe read the Atkins book or this beginners guide. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb
or this simple clinic version of Atkins...eat only what is on this list https://www.dietdoctor.com/se/wp-co...starch_diet.pdf
. "Hoping to be successful" needs a plan...your kitchen stocked with allowed foods, cleaned of all the junk foods, packed and planned meals if you work outside the home, etc. Many ideas in those guides linked above.
Do you need more support? There are buddy groups and challenges here you can join, or build an audience for your blog.
The LC diet is getting press in WV, a whole hospital has gone LC, due to this great doctor: Mark Cucuzzella, MD
West Virginia University School of Medicine
WVU Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Health
Can you meet with him? He too uses the clinic diet above.
Let us know what you need to get back on track.
