I tried the Atkins diet about a year ago. I did lose weight in the three weeks I was on it. I just couldn't stick with it. It wasn't the will power or craving for carbs that made me crumble...

First of all, I was so tired all the time. I was so sluggish I'd come home from work, eat supper and was sleeping on the couch by 7pm. Felt terrible. No energy at all.

Then, by week three, I was so constipated I had gas cramps so bad I couldn't stand it. I spent an entire weekend curled up in pain on the couch. DH wanted to take me to the hospital. It took me three days of laxatives before that problem went away.

So, for me, and my body... it just wasn't the diet for me. I know many people that have had lots of success on it. I may try it again one day and add some supplements for energy and a natural laxative alternative.
