I started the Atkins diet as last ditch attempt to cure dyspepsia and digestive problems and to my suprise it worked. Another 'by-product' was that it improved my low moods and insomnia to a great degree. So it seems that I do have some sort of intolerance to carbs, especially bread, potatatoes and starchy carbs. The downside though was that at 5'10'' & 154lb I went down to nearly 140lb. This is too low. And the lack of energy I experienced was a worry. I would like to be able to follow a low-carb and still have the calories/energy to carry on weight training. Does anybody have a similar story. Mudlark 'Where there's money, there's muck'.
