No More Atkins; Maybe

Based on the notes taken by the medical examiner re Dr. Atkins death, guess I need to give up the diet. I’ve been on it for about 6 months and have had double digit weight loss. Plus it has helped lower my blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol among other things. Lately though, I’ve gotten totally sick of it and I’ve noticed that I’m experiencing more acne. So in the next week or so, I’ll probably switch to the South Beach Diet or the Fat Flush Plan. Both seem to offer a more balanced diet than the Atkins plan. And granted my doctor said it was ok to continue on Atkins provided I take the appropriate supplements, I’m ready to diversify what I eat on a daily basis. More than anything, I miss eating fruits.

  1. I missed fruit too. I mean immediately. Fruit and carrots. Plus, it was hard for me since I don’t eat meat. I was so tired of tuna, you’ve no idea.
