    If you are referring to the Atkins fat fast, it's supposed to be 1,000 cal with 90% fat.

    Why are you doing this? Atkins advised it for those who have metabolic issues that prevented them from...

    I went back and read the OP three times. She said she's lost 10 lbs--in 2 months. Why is the title about 'gaining'?

    Given all the tweaking she seems to have done in those few months, I think a...

    You didn't "lose" 11 lbs in one week--nor did you 'gain' the second week. Although I'd watch out for that almond butter (it's not good for weight loss), here's what's going on.

    That first week,...

    Nuts to me are far too caloric for the nutrition they provide. I was becoming addicted to nut butters because I want some 'treat' that's not sugar related, so I transitioned to hemp seed butter,...

    I just read about a British study that indicated that 'seniors' benefited from calorie restriction. However, as a 'senior' (I'm 73), I wonder how they measure that, as I find that with aging, I...

    An insulin 'spike' is a metabolic dysfunction--and most people don't experience it. In a healthy person (non-diabetic) insulin is released by the pancreas as needed for the process of digesting...

    Carbs are only an issue for people like me who tend to produce too much insulin in response to eating carbs. It's not that the insulin 'stores fat,' but it drives blood sugar very low resulting in...

    There's an awful lot of 'may' and 'perhaps' in this supposed 'study.' There's no evidence to support the hypothesis--yet.

    As it points out, however, uric acid is produced in the body itself. If...

    No, according to my cardiologist, your HDL is fine. Mine is usually in the 90s, but it's been over 100 several times, and my cardiologist told me that he was 'jealous' of my numbers. According to...

    If you're 'lowish carb' and that was a Glucose Tolerance Test, the results could be skewed. When I had that test, I was told to eat a minimum of 250g of carbs for 3 days prior to the test to insure...

    Are you expecting your period by any chance? That's the only time I've ever felt that 'cannot get full' type of hunger, no matter what I ate.

    If you lose weight despite this eating, then see a...

    Stop now! And check out Dr. Richard Bernstein's Diabetic Solution. It's a book, but he also has a very helpful website. He is the 'gold standard' for diabetes diets. He is himself a Type 1...

    If it were me, I'd do the steak and eggs for a couple of days to 'reset' myself. I'd never touch 'a little honey' because sugar is sugar, and the bed thing right now for you is total abstinence. ...

    Please don't go by posts you read. Most people don't even check the actual JUDDD plan but go by what other people tell them.

    When I did JUDDD, I checked the site and then bought Dr. J's book and...

    I don't think 36 hours is very long. When I have a colonoscopy, I basically water fast for 48 hours (while also taking those awful laxatives)--because I'm difficult to 'clean out.' Now I want to...

    I don't see any problem with that at all. On my low-calorie days, I like to eat more than once, but breakfast is my 'biggest' meal--about 100 cal.

    If you want to get used to Primal first and then...

    There is actually a hereditary male-pattern baldness that affects women. All the women on my father's side of the family were affected--and I have been too. It gets worse with age.

    If you have PCOS, my understanding is that a low carb diet is essential for you. In your situation, with PCOS and wanting to lose weight, I'd lose the potatoes entirely and try to get into ketosis...

    A cortisone shot CAN heal the problem--sometimes, depending on the problem. I have spinal stenosis, and there's an area in my neck where the nerve periodically gets pinched. I have a lot of...

    Yes, a high HDL is a good thing! Your cholesterol is just fine.

    Just because the lab report flags something as out of range, doesn't mean it's a bad thing. HDL is a perfect example of that.

    It could be glycogen storage happening too fast so that the muscles spasm. That would explain the thirst and water retention--which I also experienced.

    Alas, there was no way to alleviate the...
