Atkins is not always a clean diet.. Paleo and primal are.. I feel do much better on primal!

Just getting off the grains is worth it :) We have been grain-free since Aug. Haven't missed it.

Looking forward to start training for a half of a half Marathon (6+ miles--it's a relay). I jogged .5 mile for the first time in a while (have had an ankle injury) and walked another 1.5. Did not want to overdo but looking forward to doing more, maybe 3 miles, today. Plenty of energy. I don't need no stinkin' grains!

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.
