Barbara from Texas is 36, and has been following the Atkins program since August of 2000, She has also read Protein Power, using it to figure out lean body mass, among other things, and she thinks that both Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution and Protein Power are great programs.
Mary from Alabama is 30 years old. She has been following the Atkins diet since February 29, 2000, and has lost 56 pounds, even though she takes the Depo Provera shot, which is known to cause problems with weight gain in some women. She told me she started having a problem with her weight at the age of 12, a time when many young girls will start to struggle with extra pounds.
Tinakaye from Ohio is 36 years old and the mother of four. She has been following the Atkins diet on and off for ten years, but used it only as a “diet” and not lifetime a way of eating. “I started again two years ago,” she said, “with the first year being off and on. Then, a year ago, the light bulb went off in my head. I finally understood that this must be a lifetime way of eating and not just a diet for me. I know that Dr. Atkins repeats many times throughout his book that this is to be a way of eating, but I thought I was “different” and it didn’t apply to me…… Wrong!”
