I also did a drastic cut in carbs, basically following the keckwick diet which atkins approves for a stall or rapid weight loss. You also cut your calorie intake as well. This is what has worked for me. I still get some cravings, but its getting better as I go along. Good luck to you guys!
If you have the right mindset then nothing can stop you from reaching your goals! Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!
