i have decided that i'm giving atkins a break. i have not been feeling well over the last week or so and i want to figure out if it's the diet or if it is the fact that I have been fighting the stomach flu. Which has been going around here very badly over the last week or so. I am going back to good old weight watchers and counting my points and watching my calorie intake. So far so good I have just started back yesterday, today is my second day and have been staying op. I have also been exercising as well. So hopefully this will work for me and I can figure out if I am actually sick or not. With atkins you do have withdrawls from the high carbs so that is why it's so hard for me to tell if it is a cold or the diet. i would be on day six for atkins and they say the first week is the hardest. i'm hoping it's the diet and not the stomach flu, cause it would make me feel alot better nowing whats wrong. anyway just thought I would share thanks angie Ps it's been awhile since I've been on wwer's any suggestions on low point snacks and fruits and veggies would be great.
