: : I have completely cut carbs out of my diet, except for the ones, in say milk. I still can't find the book. Does cheese have a lot of carbs in it? I really like Monterrey Jack, Cheddar, etc. I really like this diet. Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and I didn't even want the mashed potatoes or pies. I just had turkey and green beans. Anyway, I haven't lost anything that I've noticed, but it has only been a little over a week. Is it true that it takes about 3 weeks before you start seeing anything? The only thing I have problems with is that I really hate greasy food, so when I cook, I usually use my Foreman grill. That doesn't cause a problem with this, does it? Thank you so much for all your help. Your success with this is really what has kept me motivated. I need to loose at least 60lbs. I am 5'8 & weigh 185-190, I'd like to get down to where I felt most comfortable between 130 - 140. Anything less than that, and I'd look anorexic. Anyway, thanks alot for your help.

: Hi Sara--I have lost 210 in a year on this diet. The Forman Grill is wonderful. The cheese you like and all cheese with no sugar are unlimited.Milk has sugar so get cream and dilute it with water. Alan is on the new board and for more help and answers to this diet type in a search on Atkins Diet. They have their own web site with chat rooms and a health board like this one. All of your answers can be found there. Oh yes it takes a good 2 to 3 weeks before the weight rolls of at 3 to 5 pounds a week. Buy a cheap carb paper back counter at most grocery store for about a buck. This will tell you what foods that are high in carbs and to stay away from.You can order this book on line at the book sites and the Atkins Diet site. Good Luck
Thank you so much! Actually, I don't really even like milk, I only use it in cooking not really even that now that I'm on this diet. This has been the easiest diet I have ever tried to stick to! I thought I'd miss carbs more than I do, but this is great, and having people like you to talk to about it makes it even easier. Thank you so much for your help and input, Ray. Is it true that you can't have vegetables or salads either? I thought green veggies were ok to eat, if not, I've messed up because I've been eating lots of green beans, celery and cucumbers along with the protein. Anyway, Thanks again!
