Dr. Atkins is GOD

So, recently I went back on the Atkins diet. The ’72 version, not that politically correct retread known in the Atkins world as DANDR (Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution).

My personal opinion of DANDR is that it was written in response to the OMG YOU WILL DIE IF YOU DON’T EAT CARBS backlash when the original Atkins diet got popular a few years back. Hey, if you can do the new version, good for you, but frankly I think that net carbs thing is a load of crap, and it doesn’t work for me anyway (the DANDR diet starts out a 20 grams of carbs a day, which for me is about what I can have on maintenance, so yeah, not going to work). Oh, and not eating carbs won’t kill you. Go read Gary Taubes’ Good Carbs, Bad Carbs if you don’t believe me. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

At any rate, I’m down 10 pounds so far and I feel a HELL of a lot better than I have in awhile, so I’m sticking to this.

Now to go out and find a new martial arts school. That’s going to be a challenge.

    • Still am. I’m still tweaking my diet so I’ve gained/lost the same 3 pounds about four times now – I think I’m going to have to give up diet soda, as it seems to be stalling me.
