We did Atkins for nearly two years...lost a few pounds here and there but feeling very lightheaded and not up to par but I hung in there with Sonny with his idea of low carb. Some of the low carb recipes are really great allowing real fat forinstance in cream cheese, whipping cream and bacon recipes, etc. Eventually, we stopped losing weight and maintaining only with some weight gain. My heart had always been there with WW. I finally talked Sonny into going back with WW with all the fresh vegs, fruits, and low fat foods. It is such a healthy plan...what can I say.. Since we are back at WW we are beginning to see weight loss once again. WW makes sense and it is a healthy way of eating. I want to lose 10 lbs for my liking and Sonny wants to lose 10 lbs also. In my opinion, WW is the healthiest weight loss plan out there. Can anyone prove me different? I am all ears.
Hey twinkle! I am still all WW. I took a break thru the holidays (dont tell me I cant have my eggnog!! ) but I am back somewhat on track. You are right...atleast IMO there is nothing better than this plan. Atkins does nothing but raise your cholesterol. You might not be as hungry but your heart pays for it. I dont care how much you dress up eggs, bacon and cheese...it is still bad for you. Atkins just tries to make you believe otherwise.
Now, I will say this...while I do practice WW, I am an avid exerciser. When weather allows I walk 3+ miles a day and do 30 minutes on a stationary bike. I can tell when I dont walk because I am more hungry and more likely to splurge on junk. I cannot wait til better weather.
And you know what is the best of all this...I have been able to adjust my cooking to WW ways and have not lost taste or quality and DH has no idea he is eating healthy at all. Yet he tries to brag to me when his jeans are just a little bit too big and I just brag on him and smile...cuz I know "I" made them that way!
