    I know there are a ton of LC 'diet' plans out there. Which one are you
    following?

    I don't know what you'd call mine. The food list is similar to Atkins
    induction, but I don't limit green vegetables, and I do drink coffee.

    I have only 3 flaws. My first flaw is thinking that I only have 3 flaws.

    It's called low carb.

    I started with Atkins, but got bored with weighing and measuring stuff, so I
    simplified it. I don't eat starchy vegetables, including grains, or fruit,
    or sugar. I don't do any sort of portion control over what I do eat. And
    when I go out to eat (not very often) I ignore the rules. And I go to the
    gym six days a week. I weigh every day.

    Perhaps I need to elaborate, we've done this before but quit because I
    got pregnant. Atkins is what we choose to follow.

    I follow Protein Power Lifeplan. It's only similarity to Atkins is that it
    restricts carbs. It's mainly based on non-refined foods but there really
    are no forbidden foods as long as you stay within that carb restriction.

  10. I started out with Atkins. However, when I eventually developed T2
    diabetes in 2001 (yes, it IS possible to do LC right and still develop
    diabetes - I was on the border when I began LC 4 years previous to the
    diagnosis and LC delayed it but didn't stop it) I switched to
    Bernstein which is designed by a diabetic for diabetics.

    I've read the Atkins books, and mostly follow Atkins. I have modified
    things. I eat most of my carbs, which I limit to 30 grams a day, to early
    in the day. Later in the day I eat more fat and protein. I've meant to
    read the other low-carb diet plans, such as South Beach, but haven't really
    done it yet. I am interested in what people have to say about nutrition,
    but suspect that nobody really knows that much about it.

    From what I understand, the primary difference between Atkins and South
    Beach is that SB allows skim milk on induction. Otherwise, they're
    pretty similar.

    There are large fundamental differences between Atkins and South Beach.

    I started out using a Protein Power approach. I ended up tweaking it to
    make it work better for my individual metabolism by cutting my protein
    down to only what my body really needed, which was only about 100 grams
    a day and by logging food and counting calories, too. I hit and then
    exceeded my goal weight in late spring of 2003.

    Now, because I still have diabetes, I "eat to my meter". That means I
    can eat pretty much anything that I want as long as I can keep my blood
    sugar in the normal range of under 140 mg/dl at one hour (7.8 mmol/l)
    and under 120 mg/dl (or lower) at two hours (6.6 mmol/L). Now that I'm
    on some meds that have really straightened out my blood sugar, I've
    started shooting for much lower numbers than these--under 120 at all
    times and in the 80s and 90s within 2 hours.

    I'm also shooting for an hba1c test result under 5.5% and a fasting
    blood sugar under 100 mg/dl. (5.6 mmol/L) Attaining those kinds of good
    numbers means keeping carbs per meal at 30 gm or less, preferably slow
    acting, though if they aren't I take Precose (a prescription med) to
    slow them down.
    So far, on this regimen aided by Metformin, Precose and DHEA I have not
    gained any weight (as mentioned in another posting) despite eating more
    food this holiday season than I have eaten in years. I'm a happy girl <g>.

  15. after quitting smoking using ZYBAN, PATCHES, and M+M's, i needed to
    lose a few.pounds (a couple sizes of
    jeans).........................i was amazed by the effect sugar
    caused on my craving, and started my LC journey by reading CAD.
    there i found a quiz, took it and was committed to give it a try!
    http://www.carbohydrateaddicts.com/

    after getting "the swing" of a LC WOE and truly understanding my
    sugar problems, i was able to do a semi atkins, with additional
    veggies and fruits.

    eating LC has made all the difference in the world with my sugar
    cravings, my arthritis, and my mood swings!

    best of everything to you in this new year!

    I'm LC'ing for blood glucose reasons, not weight. My BG isn't awfully high,
    but I'm trying to straighten out the bounces.

    I'm mostly having protein in mornings, saving carbs for evenings.

    I like a lot of features of the radiantrecovery.com / "Potatoes Not Prozac"
    plan, tho it's a little too ... dramatic for me. :) The protein drink for
    breakfast (tho I do a very simple thin one) and potatoes as late snack is
    very good tho. (The more carby a late snack, the lower my FBG, and the more
    energy I have next morning.)

    I like the theory of the caveman diets: avoiding things that came late in
    evolution, such as grains and breads. Potatoes would be sort of borderline,
    they do need fire but they don't need grinding and yeast and baking etc. I
    still like bread and crackers, but I'm thinking of trying to get more of my
    carbs from fruits etc instead, maybe with something to make them more slow
    absorbing, lower GI/GL.

    I do eat a lot of dairy and fat, without worrying about all those big
    words.:) I like oily meat, such as bacon, and tuna packed in olive oil.
