Remember to eat protein or you will get tired. I see you have the component of OCD involved so you are likely to worry more than others. Slim Fast or Atkins? Since the alcohol does not get stored as glycogen, you immediately get back into fat burning after the alcohol is used up. Been there, done that As people have mentioned, Atkins teaches you good eating habits that you can carry with yourself for your lifetime.

Gotta go with Atkins. I did it a year ago and lost 28 lbs and kept them off by following the maintenance routine. At the beginning, the first two weeks, it is a rough regimen. Stick with it as it becomes less burdensome as you add more carbs to your diet beginning with week 3. This diet basically lets you eat all you want so that you never have to go 'hungry'. Just don't eat carbs. Meats, eggs, cheese are all ok. Nowadays there are even low carb breads and tortillas available, ranging from as low as 3 grams of carbs per serving up to 7 grams per serving.
There's even low carb yogurt now. Go on the diet, you will be glad you did. PM me if you have any questions. Do you see a theme happening here!? Today's sedentary way of life and fast-food culture is out of balance with our ancestral roots.. There are a few too many chemicals for our taste, but the biggest concern comes at the bottom of the ingredients list.
While just 1 gram of sugar per serving sounds good, it is important to check out which sweeteners are used. It is disappointing to see that both acesulfame potassium and sucralose are the artificial sweeteners in this drink. Sucralose has been linked to: Acesulfame-K may contribute to hypoglycemia. The presence of two potentially dangerous artificial sweeteners is enough to give this a thumbs down recommendation.

I was gaining weight from that and told its not good for my body so I figured by me drinking these shakes it would help me but its not. I hope the store will refund my money now. This was my last hope. I cannot find the Day Break Shakes. Are they nor sold in Enterprise, AL. I had 2 a day, sometimes 3.
Anyway, I hope you find something that works for you! Keep up that walking, for sure. Is there anybody out there that has tried the slim fast verses the atkins diet? Can you do a comparison if you have tried both and which one did you do better with short and long term? Thanks so much, like I said before I am at a stand still with the slim fast, also I think that I might be getting bored with it and I want to try something different.
I have tried slim fast and it really didn't get me anywhere. This WOE seems to be working well for me. What is the url to the adkins website and does it give me enough info to get started without reading the book first. I have just got involved in this today and I hadnt heard of induction and owl.
I would like to get started right away but I dont have the book yet. Been there, done that Before doing Atkins, I did Slim fast for breakfast and lunch. The real tough part was the "sensible dinner". Well, I'd go home so darn hungery that I couldn't have eaten a light meal like they suggest. She is now asking my wife about LCing!! Hi BrewWA I dont get hungry using the slim fast anymore, its just that by supper time I just want to eat. Like I said I have lost almost 40 pounds on it, but I am not losing anymore now.
Have you lost your 50 pounds by doing the Adkins? I did Slimfast years ago. I lost 30 pounds or so, mostly lean muscle mass and was still very flabby.
I was tired and hungry all the time and only ate salad with low fat dressing and a little sandwich meat on top for my evening meals. A person can't live the rest of their lives being hungry all the time. I also developed bathroom problems from lack of fiber.
I stopped it and gained much more back. I read the first chapter in the store and it made sense. I bought it and read it in a day. It took me several attempts to do it right but I kept trying and lost 58 pounds. I tried to do maintenance while being pregnant but I got readdicted to carbs again. I'm growing muscle, getting smaller and "as God as my witness, I'll never be hungry again! I think Slim Fast counter acts atkins why would you want slim fast when you can eat a juciy steak, or bacon I was wondering about exercising with the atkins diet, no one has mentioned that part of it.
Since everyone has lost so much weight is it hard to keep it from being flabby. As I said before, I walk at least 4 miles a day and I think that is what is keeping the weight off. My problem with the atkins diet is not eating any bread, I love the steak and all but I have to have bread with it. I guess I will learn to adjust. With the atkins diet if you fall off of it one day, is it like completely starting over?
Thanks for all your responses. I too love bread, but after the first few days, you really don't miss it. The key is to not have any around you, then you are not tempted. There are some low carb breads out there that you can have sparingly after induction, but it is really not recommened until maintainance because it could trigger cravings.
IMHO, don't like the taste of any of them. On the other hand, I love mashed potatoes and I made Mock Mashed Potatoes with cauliflower last night. It has mashed cauliflower, real butter, bacon pieces, real sour cream, parm cheese, then topped with cheddar cheese, then baked in the oven until the cheese was bubbley.
