better sleep, brighter eyes, no hair-loss, much greater suppression of hunger and cravings.
Also just feel better than I'm not dousing every meal in cheese and artificial sweeteners. (the cheese issue is particularly scary- just google dairy + cancer) I think Atkins can be done in a paleo way--just nix the cheese and sweeteners. I am doing Paleo but I strongly base the majority of my knowledge in Atkins principles. Instead of eating regular store-bought meats, I just pay attention to the quality. I get grass-fed and wild-caught almost 100% of the time, and I buy all fruits and veggies from organic, local sources.
It makes a huge difference. I went from losing the same 3 lbs on Atkins to dropping 15 between November and now.
