In reply to: Colorado Bev 's message, "Re: Is there anyone else who does NOT get results from a low-carb diet?" on 14:01:06 03/03/03 Mon

Yes, we are all different and low carb is not for everyone. What I've deduced from recent studies on the types of fats people have is, over the belt is carbs, under the belt is fats. So if you have a lot on your hips and thighs (more than your abs) it's because of the fats you eat. And vice versa means it's because of the carbs and your metabolism is lower than normal and doesn't burn off the carbs you eat before they turn into fat. I've certainly got more above my belt....but I haven't done much of a low carb diet yet. I've had friends who have done Atkins and had great success but as Bev said, it came back when the carbs were added in. I truly believe that depriving yourself of anything will lead you to fail unless you are prepared to NEVER have those things again. Portion control and eating better are what will help you in the long run.

People who diet are fatter than people who don't because most dieters lose the weight then put back even more when they go off the diet...and most dieters don't exercise and they do many diets in a row trying to find that MAGIC one that helps them keep it off. It simply FLOORS me to hear people talking about how much they have to lose and how they never do any exercise. they refuse to walk or take the stairs or VERY simple things like that that can add up quickly.

Have a great workout!
