I have a lot of friends that had high blood pressure (you will notice I said had) and used Atkins to lose weight AND get off their BP and Type II diabetes medicines.

I think that the best way to lose weight is to get your portions down, balance your carbs and protein, and keep fats under 10g per meal. If you are doing all that and weight isn't going down, cut back on the portions, but maintain frequent small meals.

I don't see why not really. The only thing is that the meds might lower your metabolism slightly but that shouldn't have much affect.

low carb recipes
I like do zucchini and sliced onions cooked in about a tablespoon of olive oil with some garlic seasoning. It's delish with some either grilled chicken or pork.

Disappointing.
Thanks Diablo. I am in it for the long haul. It is just this early in the process, with such a lot to lose, a good second week would have perked me up.

Sugar
If "progress" is believing that sugar=cyanide, I don't think it would be good for my mental health to change.

Glaun has good advice. No one can help you without knowing your plan. The ratios will vary depending on your plan. What is your plan?
