it's been fun-
 
but, I'm a wimp. Just not tough enough for Stillman's. I really admire everybody who can do this. I just cannot get into Ketosis and after 6 days, no budge on scales, I giving up. I know It is me, no doubt the program works, but guess I just do not have the required discipline. With carbs down to 5, I should've lost......oh, well, it might be meds or something. Not sure.
but thanks anyway to you folks for the support. Good luck.

Oh OW123, I hope you find a plan that works for you...

It's very frustrating to work so hard for no results...

I hope you check in and let us know how you are doing!

I recommend the book Living Low Carb by Jonny Bowden, 2010 edition. It discusses all the major low carb plans, their good ideas, plusses, and minuses. You are sure to get some good ideas and find something that suits you better and works too.

For what it's worth, Bowden says Stillman's is a very bad plan and by trying to be all things to all people, both low carb and low fat, ends up with a woe that isn't healthy for anyone. I am just repeating what the gentleman wrote, so don't holler at me, ok? LOL
