I started dieting about 2 years ago and decided to try to Atkins, low carb diet. I went from 180 to about 150# in about 3 months. I have now returned to the low carb diet after gaining back 10# and lost another 10#. The only thing that has been a problem for me is that I crave sweets after a meal. I do not have a problem not eating potatoes. I never have been a really big chip eater and really do not eat that much in between meals but always have had a dessert after a meal. I work as a nurse and find it hard to eat a small snack every 2 hours, so I carry nuts with me or boil a lot of hard boiled eggs. So far it is working well for me. The best advice that I have for all low-carb dieters or people on diets is that you need to keep busy and keep your focus off of food!! If you get in the right state of mind, you can do it. My motto for myself that keeps me strong is "nothing taste as good as being thin feels." Keep that in your mind!!!
