First of all I want to say thanks to all the advice/opinions/comments I have received. After much debating with myself, I have decided to go back to the Atkins diet. I have done it quite successfully in the past but strayed a few years ago and gained back the 35 lbs I lost. I am going to start induction again tomorrow and hopefully, along with my walking and Curves workouts, I will be able to take back off the 35 lbs and 15 more over the several months. Any other Atkin's followers out there?
