I need help! I've been on the Atkins diet for a little over a week and it is about to kill me. This is the most boring diet ever! I am sick of meat, salad, and green beans. I actually gave up tonight and ate about a half cup of cool whip just for something different. Is anyone out there doing this and enjoying it? If so, I need some tips on what to eat. The boredom is killing me. I am losing a bit of weight though which I haven't been able to do for the last seven years so I want to keep on with it.

Demo,

Congratulations on the commitment you've made.

Atkins has never been my food plan of choice, mainly because I can't live without my fruit. My very close friend was on it for several months. She liked it very much. I will see if I can get her to respond to your post. She's been on the board once or twice but has yet to post.

I remember her posting on a message board about Atkins challenges. Have you tried that?

Please keep us apprised of your experiences!

Best of luck
Elissa

Yikes JSB,
That might be a bit too thin! How do you do all that activity with so few calories? I am 5'9" and at my thinnest I was 128 and I was pretty skinny for a normal girl (as opposed to a super model). Much larger than that now, hence the Atkins diet. It is MUCH harder to lose weight when you get older. I think you can wreck your metabolism too. Be careful. The things you do when you are young can backfire on you when you are older.

Thanks everybody for your posts. Lillibeach, what are you eating? I don't see a lot of variety here.
