I know there must be some of you who have tried both diets or a combination of the two. What are the real differences between the two diets? Seems people lose an average of .7 pounds per week regardless of which diet: WW, Atkins, or South Beach.
I'm starting my first two weeks of Atkins on March 9. We are attending a benefit dinner this Saturday so I decided to wait until Monday to start. My real challenge(s) is the fact that I live in Costa Rica and have been eating A LOT of fruit up until now. There's so much fruit available here year round and it's so CHEAP! Have to get over that. My 2nd challenge is that there are very, very few diet foods available here. For example: only 2 kinds of diet Jello, no low-fat cheeses, no Stevia, etc.
One more question: how do I know whether the avocados we get here are CA or FL avocados? There seems to be a big difference in carb content between the two. TIA
