Fellow low carb dieters: Where are you in your diet, which one are you using, what are your goals and results so far?

Me:

Atkins induction as of today 29.01.2005
Goal: 10 kilos by "spring" - preferably 8 Mar but I doubt this is realistic -would be happy to reach goal for my birthday in early May.

History: South Beach from 25.11.2003 - 28.01.2005
32 kilos lost; reached plateau last November

2 aborted Atkins inductions in past - one recently due to vacation and other pressures, one in 2002.

What does God want us to eat?

What sort of foods, if eaten, will send a person straight to hell?

My friend lost 12 kilos following this diet. It took him 2 weeks. He is a very stout person. I lost 3 kilos for this period of time, because my weight is nearly normal, I just wanted to correct it a little. From my point of view, it is the greatest diet in the world and the most popular in Moscow now.

Btw, went to a drugstore yesterday. Picked up 3 different types of polyvitamins with minerals and asked a pharmacist to help to choose one of them. She recommended something starting with "S' in yellow box. Sugar wasn't mentioned at any of the ingredients of the vitamins, but still I asked the lady if it could be contained. And she definitely said that glucose and sugar are in all vitamins they have and that I had to look for something at diabetic department.

As far as I remember Vitrum is not sweet at all. I can be mistaken. Does anybody know what sugarless and glucoseless (is their such a word in English?) vitamins can be recommended. Or do you thinks that a small portion of sugar is not harmful at induction phase.

I messed myself up with glucose based Vitamin C during the early phases of South Beach. I now use artificially sweetened Upsavit C, and my usual choice of locally available multi (polyvitamin as you have it) is Oligovit. However, at the time I used megadoses of C - I think a single glucose containing pill is not a real problem.

Righty Ho ladies and gentlemen!

Count me in on this dieting thing as well. Who can tell me what about the atkins diet (or point me in the direction of a website which does, without selling me something).

I have been in Russia a year and slaped on a lazy 14 kilograms (mainly due to Mrs Goose and I eating far too well). Its now diet or death.

Love and kisses

Goose

I've lost 60 lbs since the start of September on Atkins. Took some time off from the diet during my trip to Ulyanovsk in December ( you dont fly half way around the world and turn down eating new dishes..hell with that). and am now back on it again. Not so hard to do once you get rolling with it.

good luck

KP will denounce it of course as yet another Kremlin-backed initiative to curb democracy by robbing the great Russian citizenry of their revolutionary fervor. If Russians didn't have to ask for bread every 70-80 yrs...what would they take to the streets for?!?

Why not get some expat sponsorship for losing the weight and give the money to charity. Good incentive?

Or rather put the money into a kitty, and go out and have a slap up meal at the end of it all ? Give us all a reason to start this thread again every few months or so.
The solution to our probelms lies in two words: SELF DISCIPLINE. We are the only being in the animal kingdom that doesn't stop eating when it's full.

Like the guy from Macdonalds said: "you can always eat the salad ...... "

Ever study his "War Communism"? See his execution orders for the Black Hundreds and the clergy? Besides that, the order to kill the Tsar's family, in my book qualifies him as a mass murderer.

hold your horses, some people have been reading too much Richard Pipes, methinks...

on your criteria, a fair number of 'respected' leaders could also be labelled 'mass murderers' koba...

sorry... dont know how we've managed to hijack a diet thread to debate old V.I.U. :D

yes, wrong place for it, i agree. but anyway...

he set the rules of the system and what came afterwards was the logical progression of what he put in place. he was a despicable little fanatic.

Nope, been reading the archival documents signed by the man himself. However, since this is a diet thread, Lenin was a religious follower of the Adkins plan..

What came afterwards was a result of all kinds of different things, but I'd say the absolute key was the rapid industrialisation and urbanisation in those conditions... as well as the violent nature of the bolshevik party, which of course was something that lenin himself was able to control because he had so much respect.

he was certainly a fanatic, but he was also one of the most lucid and brilliant thinkers of the 20th century.

he was a failure. he knew his life's work was a failure after a relatively short period in power and he responded to that with terror: enemies, agents, wreckers. it all came from his time. he was a swine.

Shall we start a thread on this in the Political forum? I'd like to debate that last statement....
