As many have said, we are all so different - and respond to different ways of eating. I have many food sensitivities (mostly histamine containing/producing foods). I am also Type 2 diabetic on no meds. I am extremely active. I feel best and am healthiest when I eat whole proteins (grass-fed meats, etc) veggies and some carbs. I do however watch how many carbs I eat in one sitting so I don't trigger too much blood glucose. I usually time my carbs so I am working them off soon after eating. I don't eat candies or sugars, but I do love me some potato chips!

After six weeks, I had my cholesterol checked as my father thought this diet would kill me. I got the test results and my doctor told me it couldn't be better. He also said "whatever you are doing, keep it up."

Anyone looking to lose weight this way should seriously read Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution. It explains the primary causes of obesity, how obesity, sugars and diabetes are linked, and the health dangers of a carb-heavy diet.
Me too. I read that book and I had quite the revelation. That's EXACTLY why I was struggling to lose weight my entire life! I was doing it wrong the whole time!
I follow a modified Atkins Diet now, as I'm at my target weight. And my husband has Celiac, so it's very easy to do a gluten free diet if you're familiar with Atkins. The doctor told us when he was diagnosed we could go to some support groups and print out diets and what not, and I'm like, Nah...I got this. No problem.
And, to those of you who are watering down your cream so you don't get so many carbs...What? Carbs are in plant based foods, not in animal products. That's ALL you need to remember. And if you want watered down cream, why don't you just buy half and half?

Half and half contains lactose, which is a sugar.
Therefore milk, an animal product, DOES contaun cabs.

Fine. Cream has 6.6 carbs per cup and half and half has 10.4. And you put how much in your coffee? A tablespoon maybe? Yeah, BIG difference.
