Hi...general questions...

I've been thinking about the Atkins diet for a while, but there are 2 concerns I'd have to start out with:

1. I already have high cholestorol - 838! - (I'm not that overweight though) so would it still be safe to eat stuff like lamb and chicken? Fish seems okay since it's all protein.

2. What if you were really hungry and wanted a sub sandwich or some chips; would that just ruin the diet or can you somehow counterbalance it?

Thanks for any help...

The thing that I've found happen with eating off the diet--after I've been eating strictly for enough time, that extra bread, chips, or sugary snack actually makes me physically ill or amazingly tired and drained. I suppose that is the counter-balance. Your body gets used to the lack of carbs.
1. After an initial rise in cholesterol, most peoples levels lowered significantly after about 6 months or so.

2. NO. One of the hardest parts of Atkins is that the usual reasoning concerning diet cheats "Oh, a bite won't hurt, being TOO strict is no good, just a little piece", etc. are NEVER true. The idea is to be in ketosis, and even a little cheat can and often will knock you out of it. Since it takes three days on average to enter ketosis, cheating doesn't just set you back a little, it sets you back half a week.

the Atkins website has a lot of info, but if you're really interested you should probably look into purchasing the book. It's pretty cheap, and will answer almost all your questions.
"somehow counterbalance it?"

Is this like people who eat a snickers bar and a diet coke?

Atkins is about eating food with a lot of nutritional value for the carbs they provide...chips don't fall into that equation. It's also not about *never* eating those foods again, but realize that its the junk food that got you to an unhealthy place initially.

Good luck.
