My daughter forwarded the above as I started Atkins 9 days ago. This might be interesting to other readers.
I am in my 70thyear and for a couple of years now have experienced chronic lower backache, general aches and pains which I thought was due to my age, joint pains, lack of energy, and lethargy during the day, then unable to sleep at night. I also gained a terrific amount of weight which was unacceptable as I became depressed and lacking in self-esteem. I had to hoist myself up from a sitting position as I had no strength to get up normally. I decided at Christmas that I would see the doctor as I was experiencing palpitations and was scared in case I was going to have a heart attack. I was reluctant to pay a doctor’s fee, so I got out my Atkins book and determined to read it again. I didn’t know my weight but my clothes were feeling tight.
I started Atkins on New Year’s Eve and am now on my 9thday of the Induction phase. I have cut out all sugar and anything sweet, wheat, potatoes, in fact any foods high in carbohydrates. Nine days later I am in a stage of Ketosis. All my aches and pains have disappeared. My lower back-pain is considerably very much better. My energy level has increased and I can get up normally. I am sleeping normally and feel so much better in every way. Plus, my clothes are beginning to feel loose.
People who are feeling like I did, may wish to look at doing a Ketogenic diet as it really does work. It proves that a wrong diet of carbohydrates will make you ill.
