I am from Ontario, Canada. A mother of 3 sons and grandmother to 6.
I find on the atkins diet I am never hungry and the cravings are gone. When I started upping the carbs in each phase I found I was gaining weight. I realize I will be one of those people that can have maybe 30 carb a day. Which I am fine with. To really make it through induction there has to be no cheating. I followed mine to a T. I also thoroughly did my homeword before starting this way of life. Read all atkins books, went on sites and listened to people. It wasn't very popular with my dr. but she didn't really know about it except it was "dangerous'. I have one problem and that is finding any kind of low carb foods where i live.

I'm a sucker for pizza!
I do this for when I am craving piza.Mix together hamburger and about 4 italian sausages and pat in bottom of pie plate. Cook til done and drain. Make your own pizza sauce or buy it and just use what the serving tells you on the can.Add the pizza sauce, pepperoni, peppers or whatever you like and cheese. Cook til done. You can also just use the sausages or just the hamburger for the crust. Take care. Gail

Potassium levels
I wonder why that is? Lettuce has a higher net carb count than spinach and yet you can consume more lettuce than spinach on Atkins. Any answers?
