My wife and I have been fans of Atkins ever since we used that diet to lose a whole person between us six years ago or so. But we let our diet slip this Easter - and one of the remarkable things is how SLUGGISH and icky we feel. Today we returned to Atkins in earnest and no joke: I'm already feeling better. I can't believe how much energy that way of eating gives. People sometimes worry about what Atkins does to the other measures of health besides weight. At least as far as Cindi and I are concerned, our doctors agree: Atkins works fabulously for us. All the indicators have been great the entire time we've been on the diet. To all the nay-sayers, I say: give Atkins a chance!
By the way, people sometimes wonder about snack food on Atkins. You know one of my favorites? You take a plate of pepperonis and microwave 2 minutes until crispy. Let cool a bit, and you've got some great pepperoni chips. Just perfect to wash down with you Mic Ultra! :)
