logicalargument: Introduction

Just an introductory post, to say thank you to tzikeh and fandom_ww for the inspiration ...
I've been watching carbs for the past year, mostly because of my husband's diabetes. I had first tried Atkins way back in the 70s, the first time the diet was popular (back when you had to check for ketosis with the little strips). The plan is much easier to follow today than it was then, and I'm delighted to see all of the low-carb foods that are coming on the market now.

elenamorda: Atkins

I've been doing Atkins for 9 months now. I hit a platueau a few months ago as my carb level creeped up and I'm ready to start induction again this week and get back into weight-loss mode. I love that there are others on lj who are doing Atkins and willing to share!

Hi! Just found this lj today...I've been on Atkins since July and have lost 40 pounds so far...30 more to go. I hit a plateau in October and am now just starting to break through it. I'm still doing Induction, which I find to be quite tolerable. I'd love to swap recipes with y'all!
