Yeah I would love to see the old list!

I agree fully on the old version (by that I mean what I used in 2003: Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution). I prefer to get my info from the last book that the man himself wrote.

It may take a while still, but Atkins will be vindicated in the future and held up as a genius, I say stick to the advice he wrote down personally. I'd actually like to get a copy of his 1972 edition just for kicks as well, I bet that version is even more effective because there really was no choice but real food back then if you were eating like that.

I didn't bother buying the new book, as the old one is just fine. Secondhand copies are usually very cheap too, if you don't have one.

Aside from the product placement, if you're losing on the new one, don't switch, but if you're struggling, go back to the original. If you're after meal ideas, Dana Carpender has great recipe books.

Most plans that modify over time are to make them easier to fit in with lifestyle, but they may be slower for weightloss.

I did the original version to lose 100 lbs in 10 months. I found it MUCH more effective than New Atkins.

i am doing the old version, won't touch the new version which is just only interested in selling their products which stall your weight loss as they contain polyols..

the old version is the best and the one that cares only about you succeeding!!

Oh, I forgot to mention, the new version contains a cure for leg cramps! \o/

Salt and magnesium. I take mag tablets and eat Frank's Red Hot Sauce :)

I find that I have time to make scrambled eggs in the microwave. They cook while I feed my dogs. Then I grab them, 2 pieces of bacon, stick it all in a container and eat them at work. I usually have about 45 mins tops in the morning. I know bacon is processed, but hey. It works!

Find little ways to make your life easier. The bars are easy, but they are full of all kinds of stuff! They may also keep you from entering ketosis. (happened to me. dropped the bars, hello ketosis, hello weight loss!)

Just my 2 cents!

And yes. I am on "old Atkins"
