Hi Girls,
I have been MIA pretty much this weekend. Taking it easy.

Congrats ML on your loss! This is really working for you!

Linda B: How're you doing?

This weekend I added a little bit of veggies - 1/4 cup of french cut string beans and green bell peppers at 2 different meals. I didn't weigh myself either this weekend. I think I have TOM coming because appetite/cravings have increased, belly feels bloated. Maybe it's the extra carbs I'll just eat meat and iceburg today and see what happens.

I just found this forum!!

Statement of Robert C. Atkins, M.D. to the Senate Select Committee On Human Needs April 12, 1973 starts on page 299 of his book “Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution. If you do not have a copy of this book, get it.

Many people may think I am a newbie to Dr. Robert Atkins diet. I am a newbie to this web site, LCF, not to Dr. Robert Atkins diet. The first time I went on Dr. Atkins diet was 1972. I lost 17 pounds the first two weeks.

I thought the weight would stay gone, it did not!

Many fat years later I went back on Dr. Atkins diet. The year was 2002. I lost 112 pounds. Again I thought I had it all under my control. How wrong I was. I was doing his 1972 Diet Revolution WOE. I did not take it to the finish line. Oh, how I wish I had. I regained every ounce and then some.

Fast forward to today. March 1, 2011, I reached another all time high fat weight! I started on his Diet Revolution again. I lost 39 pounds from March 1 to May 15 2011. I was looking around one day in cyberspace and I happened upon the Atkins Web Site. I took a look see. I liked what I saw, so I joined Atkins Web Site. Soon I learned everyone was on his newest book that he had somehow written from his grave. The New Atkins For The New You, NANY. It may work for some, but I did not work for me.

On “his” new book I lost from May 16, 2011 to July 25, 2011 a grand total of 5 pounds!

A new friend came along and saved me, “Whitedov”. As her name implies she is a true dove. Whitedov took my hand and brought me here.

I am back on Dr. Robert Atkins 1972 Diet Revolution. My feet are firmly planted. My roaming in Cyberspace days are behind me. I am moving again; to become the new me I have always wanted to be.

So, my day starts today with zero carbs. I am looking for that purple everyone wants to see
I am so glad to have found this site. Eating the 1972 way, I've helped my Husband go from 283 to 210 and I went from 165 to 129. I didn't realize I was eating the way Dr. Atkins suggested way back when. I read the NANY and some things bothered me about it.

I decided when my Husband and I committed to losing weight, we would follow a strict 65/5/30 (65% calories from Fat, 5% carbs, 30% protein). That is the magic formula as far as I'm concerned.

I tried Fit Day and didn't like it. I actually have a comprehensive Excel spreadsheet and it has all the foods I normally eat. Also, I use calorieking.com and the USDA nutrition site to calculate the food values of EVERYTHING!

It is so encouraging to read peoples' journeys on this forum. I am wishing you all success!! Let's help each other here. If you slip up, the next bite must be full fat and carb free

Hi Laura and welcome!

This thread has pretty much petered out for now. MaryLouise (original poster) is in the process of moving but she is doing well (via regular email)

Yes, for the most part the original Atkins will break a stall or faciliate more weight loss than the higher carb versions of the latter books; however, the food is limited quite a bit. I am actually eating some meals to the Atkins 72 plan and some meals to the Atkins 2002-Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution known as DANDR. Constipation has been a problem from lack of veggies so I am trying to balance between the 2 plans. I've also added exercise slowly which should kick up my metabolism and tone me, hopefully.

Great attitude and keep writing. I am on this thread and write on another thread as well so I'll see you if you write. I'm hoping MaryLouise comes back on after her move so we can get this thread alive and hopping again!

I just ordered the 1972 book on Amazon but am really curious to learn what the differences are. I'm having a hard time getting pink (let alone purple) ketosticks, something in my diet must be off and am thinking of trying this zero carb thing - is that meat only to get there?

If there's any consolation, my ketostiks never turn any color and that is the case with some people. Somehow my body must use the ketones throughout my body so there's no excess in my urine. Basically, from what I've read in other books, if you are doing 50g net carbs or less, you are in the fat-burning (vs carb burning) stage of the way of eating.

WOE: Atkins
Hello Ladies. So glad I came across this thread. May I please join your group? I lost 72 pounds on Atkins back in 2006; however, gained it all back. I've decided to follow Atkins 72, as I find it to be clean and simple. I have the book and will send some time today getting familiar again with how it works.

I'm sorry, but I didn't read the entire thread. Could someone repost the 1968 food list?

Thanks a bunch and I look forward to getting to know you all.

Meek

Hi Skinny! Sure you can join the group! As you can see, we don't post so often in this thread, but do pop in to post progress reports from time to time. I lost 18# on Atkins back in 2006, too. Gained it all back int he stressful time right after that when my Dad died. Mom was diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment (and now dementia) since he passes and my responsibilities helping her manage her life have been stressful to say the least, as she lives 2½ hours away. Much road time; much paperwork; much stress; chronic cortisol issues. But things are settling back down and I restarted April 2009. Have lost 29# and want to lose 26 more.

I am following Atkins 1972 as spelled out in post #1 of the separate thread atop this forum. I've not seen a 1968 list of foods.

(30 ml) soy sauce ¼ cup
(40 g) chopped onion

Hi dasiey, Best advice I have is never give up. It seems to take forever. But it is kind of like raising kids. You reach a point that has you thinking you will never see day-light and bammm them pounds are gone! At least that is the way it happens to me. This is not my first time to lose 100 pounds, but I sure hope it is my last tIme I have to struggle losing weight. And the sayin is very true" NOTHING TASTE BETTER THAN THIN FEELS!"

I started this time weighing as close to 260 as I ever was. Today I weigh 169. I feel goodddddddddddd!!!

Congrats on the 100 pound loss! Have you tried or considered using cinnamon capsules to help with your blood sugar. My mother has gone back to using them and she said her blood sugar is so much better now. What a shame it would be to never be able to have veggies or fruits.
