Fresh Start

The Atkins plan, I discovered, is so not the plan for me. In the past couple of months I've started Atkins no less than 3 times. Everything goes well for about a week, I keep completely on plan then BAM I start binging. I end up eating things I normally wouldn't when not dieting -ie: white bread, cereal, crackers and any type of sugar I can get my chubby little hands on. This totally negates any loss I might have had.

So after much contemplation and reading of other blogs I'm joining Weight Watchers tomorrow. This won't be the first time, but hopefully the last.

Well it is not surprising that it causes you to binge. Our bodies are made for the consumption of carbs (think brown rice and yams- not birthday cake) and carbohydrates are one of the six essential nutrients for sustaining life. It is terrible to think about the body not getting something that keeps it functioning.

I am glad you are going another route (WW)... you get carbs with their plans and it seems to be a pretty balanced program!
