Dr. Recommended Stillmans- New to me :)

Hi Guys,

It's been a while since I have been here. I did Atkins a long time ago but made the mistake of not educating myself. I did induction seriously for three months and lost 40lbs. However, I didn't continue with OWL and of course needless to say am back up to 206lbs. I went to the Dr. and he said my blood sugar was getting high and I am borderline diabetic. He suggested the Stillman diet. I told him I had done Atkins in the past and it worked but I put the weight back on. He said that he wanted me to do the Stillman diet for 8 wks and then come back and he would help me. He said "have you ever done Atkins with a Dr.'s guidance to help" I told him no and he said he would help me incorporate vegetables, fruit and whole grain carbs slowly back into my diet to continue my weight loss and eventually maintain the loss. With all that being said.....I decided to come back to the place that was the most supportive place ever......HERE......anyone else doing Stillman diet or know if you can have ham or other lunch meats. I know we need to watch the perservatives and additives. However, Stillman is much more strict than Atkins induction and I know if I don't find idea's for quick grab foods I won't succeed. The deli ham is considered "lean". I am trying to find a book about Stillman but until then. This is day two and I need idea's. Thanks everyone you are the best group of low carbers ever! I want to be successful. I dont want to be diabetic and all the side effects that causes. Thanks in advance for all the great wisdom!

Your doctor actually recommended Stillman's? The QWL version of meat only? That's a first.

You cannot have processed lunch meats. You can eat lean meats only.
