Let me tell you! (OK, now I sound like my grandma. She used to knit Pabst beer can panels into hats)
Over the last two weeks I’ve enjoyed:
Red Robin gourmet burgers on home-made buns,
Wendy’s Baconators on home-made buns,
Sonic egg toasters on home-made buns,
Little Caesar pizza toppings,
lamb gyro with tzatziki,
— you name it.
I haven’t starved myself or depleted myself in any way whatsoever.
I ate fat.
*wafting epsom salts under the nostrils of a low-fat dieter who just passed out*
I exercised, I drank fluids. I suffered the induction flu, and came out feeling fantastic. I have more energy than ever.
By the way, true low-carb believers, I’ve lost 24 pounds in 2 weeks.
You don’t need crash diets or austere eating plans to lose weight. You don’t have to exercise 24 hours a day. Follow Atkins as he wrote the plan, and stick to it. It works for a reason. The first few days are enough to make you levitate from the ceiling and speak in languages you’ve never heard before, but heck on a ham hock– isn’t it worth it in the end?
It took me three months to lose that much weight on Weight Watchers, and while it is a GREAT company with very sound advice, it just didn’t offer the fat. I was hungry all of the time. So 3 months to lose that weight, or two weeks of low-carb sustenance living on Atkins.
How do you explain a loss like that to your local TOPS group?
We’ll find out.
