eve, am SOOO glad you took the time to do some reading and research over the weekend. gah, it's frustrating trying to help peeps on the interwebs who won't help themselves. a plethora of knowledge on-line is FREE and knowledge is power. a few years back, i spent a weekend reading every single one of mark's blog posts. it was after finding atkins and dr.eades and a few others that helped me make the low-carb transition. i got healthier very quickly and lost weight without starving or suffering. i mean, c'mon, butter and avocados? lol, what's not to like?
as many have said, this is not simply about dropping weight. it's becoming healthier, which for some can take a long time. once the body realizes you're finally nurturing it, it will be capable of all sorts of good things, but that all takes time and many are so very impatient.
the sad is so insidiously damaging and that long-term result often seems to coincide for women when we approach or enter our 40s. together they absolutely SUCK. guys in their 20s can turn into chris helmsworth in a couple months but it takes most older women more time and a more focused approach.

As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
