I'm the one on the left. I like food. The whole "live to eat" wasn't the whole story, but still, I like food. Then the doctor said "Type 2 Diabetes" and I decided the Atkins diet was going to be my best bet. It is the diet with a loophole because it claims fat is OK, but restrict the carbs and sugar. Well, sugar substitutes are out there.
The Atkins Diet has worked for me, but I still like food. That is why there are so many postings about my diet. I've been on this diet for several years and haven't had to go on any type of medication:)
