Female, 66 years old and have followed mostly low carb diets to keep my weight at least somewhat in check over the years. The weight gain occurs when I'm not on a diet regimen. With worsening fasting blood sugar, a good 40-50 pounds to lose, and a family history of type 2 diabetes, I'm back to low carb and keeping at Atkins induction levels with a higher ratio of fat. Since new research has shown that extending the period of time between meals helps lower fasting insulin levels (important to correcting the insulin resistance that is behind type 2 diabetes), I also utilize intermittent fasting at a 16:8 level.

Is obesity and what looks like food addiction a disease?
@spacey, then by your definition cancer isn't a disease.

Why is my weight not be recorded?
It's immediate. Perhaps you did not scroll down to the bottom of the page to click on the button that records it?

Atkins bars...what gives??
That's great! Glad to hear the weight's falling off too - that is the joy of Atkins.

Atkins bars...what gives??
I think this site isn't prepared to deal with the adjustments for sugar alcohols because they're not truly net carbs (total carbs - fiber) but "unavailable" carbs. The nutrition labels do read as 19 carbs and 6 fiber, which would technically be 13 net carbs. Ten of those 13 are sugar alcohols hence the "3 gr net carbs" listing on the front of the product. You are probably better off without the bars, dart451. Many folks have gut problems from eating them, and some report that their weight loss stalls when they regularly eat them.

The little wheel isn't at the bottom, it's at the top. On the first image posted by Scott-M it is at the far left on the blue strip just under the words "My Food Diary." That will get you to a screen where you can elect to show net carbs in your diary. I don't know what is going on with your editing ability.
