New eating adjustment....
Instead of thinking of it as a "diet", I'm thinking of it as an eating adjustment.
I've done the Atkins for years, off and on, and it was good to me. I lost 50 pounds or so on it. But recently my body just doesn't like the Atkins diet. I've started getting gout and kidney stones because of it. So it's just not for me anymore.
This is what I've changed to. Acording to online information, I've found that to maintain 275 pounds, which I weigh, I need about 3400-3500 calories a day. I've reduced my calorie intake to 2000 calories, and I'm measuring all my food, and strictly counting calories. I figure that if I can reduce calorie itake by 1400 calories a day, and add in some cardio, three times a week, that just from diet alone, i should see 2-3 pounds lost per week.
Not that this is guaranteed, but it should be a good start.
Any suggestions from anyone out there/
