    barbies and beer. Sound as a pound.

    At least your diet doesn't include some of the 'delicacies' I've heard of from the US.

    Like s'mores, deep-fried twinkies and the like.

    How about some of the Brit delicacies like Spotted Dick, chips cooked in animal fat and pork pies?

    Most people have given everything up in favour of the Atkins diet, the most unhealthy diet you could ever lend yourself to. Basically eat all that is bad for you...

    Or you can be like moi, ie eat little and what you eat rarely has any fat, it's called the "vegetarian diet"

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    Amazing that the Atkins diet works - there's no way I would ever consider it myself, though.

    In most diets, if you are a little peckish, eat an apple, a carrot, that kind of thing. The Atkins diet is a real 'Dr. Nick' affair - rub the food on the greaseproof paper. If it goes clear, eat it - you know, "I'm peckish. I think I'll have a pound of sausages and a couple of pork chops fried in lard".

    But don't have a slice of bread - that'll ruin everything.

    It works if your only aim is to lose weight. Unfortunately, no-one seems to pay attention to what most of that weight loss is; fluid. You're not losing fat really, just fluid and it ain't good for you. Also, where do you get your fibre from in high-protein foods? I bet people who are hard-core Atkins diet people are the most constipated people on the planet. It's not good for your bowel and surely, there's an elevated risk of high cholesterol or bowel cancer from eating stuff like that required in the Atkins diet.

    On a more socialogical note, I think diets like the Atkins diet promotes a dangerous image because it's sole focus is losing weight, not being healthy. Losing weight does NOT make you healthier unless you are morbidly obese and even then, it's fat you need to lose, not just 'weight'. It's a dangerous cycle reminicent of the thought processes which promote anorexia:

    Anorexia: If I lose weight people compliment me. If I lose more weight, people compliment me more.

    Atkins Diet: If I lose more weight, I become thinner and therefore more healthy. If I lose more weight, I become healthier still.

    And so the cycle continues..........

    Being healthy has never been just about losing weight whereas the Atkins diet philosophy seems to tell you exactly that. That's very dangerous in our era of the unattainable body beautiful, particularly for young, image-conscious teens where if you're above a size 12, you're obviously fat by some peoples' reckoning. Women have never been put under more pressure to lose weight than they are now and this sort of thing just panders to the 'lose weight and you'll be happy' industry.

    I'm afraid I just love rice and breads far too much to committ to something like the Atkins diet. I also love common sense too much but that's just my opinion on the diet as it stands. If someone wants to eat nothing by steak, eggs, etc. good luck to them (and I'll be a little jealous ) but you won't catch me doing it.

    My last word on the Atkins diet - a pal of mine has used it to shed 4 stone and he insists that it's totally down to the whole diet as opposed to one aspect of it.

    Now, my buddy used to drink like Big Merv in a desert, and one of the things you have to give up is alcohol. I tried to point out that, perhaps, it was just down to knocking the bevvies on the head but he would have none of it.
