Sorry males but we all know you drop weight faster, I am currently on Akins and am doing well but will not stay on it long due to concerns about how healthy it is.

Looking for the perfect diet fit for me and a cheer team of buddies.

Hi Chericakes! I am not over 50, more like 47....but have over 50 pounds to lose. Perhaps that balances things. Would love a buddy as well. I am doing Atkins for now(perhaps forever).....I am not familiar with Ideal protein.Congrats on the 5 pounds!

Would love to be buddies or in a group with all of you. Let me know if you form a group. I'm not quite 50 - in my late 40's and I have 50 more lbs to lose. Lost 25 so far. If you'll take me I'm in. To pikwik - I believe with all my heart - and from the doctors screening results - that this is a very healthy diet. Don't let the nay sayers get you down about this diet.

Hi girls I just turned 49 last month and have 45 pounds to lose. I have lost 15 so far. I fell off the wagon since the beginning of the year and just started induction again. I also had my blood work done and saw a great change in my results. My triglycerides are almost perfect and they have been high for the past 5 years. Was funny because my DR. said just cut a few more carbs to bring them down, Also if I lose maybe 20 more pounds I will be able to stop my blood pressure meds too.

I just turned 54 this year and have been on low-carb for about 3 years now. I started close to 400 pounds! (my ticker here doesn't show that, but I think it's a matter of the time period). I've lost 150 pounds this way, and the greatest benefit, believe it or not, is how much better I feel. I've got plenty of other health issues that confound my efforts, but even so, my overall wellbeing is so improved now it seems like the weight loss is just a "side effect"! I love it. I've still got at least 100 more to lose, but I'm going to get there because this lifestyle works. My loss is slower now, but I expected that; you can't lose at a high rate for the whole road. Our endocrinologist says "phenomenal". I'm not as enthused, but I'm still happy. It's still trickling down, and it's all lifestyle, not surgery. yay

My DH has recently been diagnosed uncontrolled Type 2 diabetic (thankfully I'm at least not diabetic!), so we're both under the care of the same endocrinologist and his diet. Makes it easier to implement.

I'd be glad to add my voice to others' here ... although I'm not always very reliable about stopping by as regularly as I ought! Good luck to us all. We're going to get to our goals, and then some!
