I am 50 years old and I have been on a diet all my life. It started out with Jack LaLane and you know how many dollars I have spent?? My husband had kept track all these years--trying to help his fat wife get back her figure---$ 6,987.00. I do have a great husband! I have used every pill and every gimic that ever hit the press and guess what? The weight came off and then came back. Weight Watchers was one place I spent a small fortune. Lost 98 pounds then gained 154 pounds then lost 50 , then gaines 39 pounds--all while paying them to cheer me on. Jenny Craig took hundreds for three years---all of those packaged lousey meals! Last year for Christmas my husband gave me a small package and said this will be your last diet ever. It was two tickets to Hawaii for our anniversary and The Dr. Atkins diet revolution book---Cost--$6.00 . I looked at him and said yea right. We took that trip and I did read the book. I started the diet when I got home and I am happy to tell you that he has lost 75 pounds and I have lost 143 pounds and we are a new couple. He weighs 168 and I weigh 147. We have lots more money and we feel so much better than we ever did. Health wise--we are both really a doctors dream! No high blood pressure any more, and I no longer am classified a diabetic. Thanks to that $6.00 book, we just put a down payment on a piece of land to build our dream house. We have found our fountain of youth--together and healthy for many more years. Think about this diet. It isn't easy---but it works and it won't bankrupt your wallet. Treva and Allen G. Houston, Texas
