    Or your failures.

    I'm thinking of trying it again. I've done it before and lost a lot but gained it all back rather quickly. Has anyone ever lost on it and not gained it back?

    Yeah, I know what you mean. Giving up Beer and Margaritas are going to be tough.

    Not trying to be a dick but I know a lot of people who've tried this and not one had lasting success with their weight.

    That's exactly what I'm asking. I don't want to do it again if it is guaranteed failure.

    Atkins is easy. I am a low functioning adult with no resistance. If I was normal, I'd just cut back on food and exercise more.

    I can eat fajitas or carne asada without the tortillas but I may have to drink shots or something.

    look dude, trying to help you out. why start a thread about dieting then? atkins is a bullshit diet, as the rest are. if you're a fat ass, stop eating so much.

    Yeah, I'm sure you were trying to help me when you asked my average meal at McDonalds. That didn't sound at all like you were being an asshole.

    It's a lifestyle not a fad diet. if you go back to your old ways of eating of course you're going to gain weight. I don't follow the Atkins diet per se, I just for the most part cut bread, pasta, rice and potatoes from my diet, eat as much protein as possible and low on the sodium. I stray from time to time, no biggie, and don't worry too much about alcohol, in moderation of course.. works for me

    I'm definitely a fatty. I just don't want to be specific of how fucking fat I am. There still might be some folks out there thinking, "Oh, he can't be that fat."

    ok, i understand. i'm not a fan of atkins at all. it makes sense not to overload on carbs, but to eliminate all carbs is silly. the reason i asked about mcdonalds is because i think people should start their diets by just lessening the amount
    of a fast food meal. for instance, instead of a big mac, chicken nuggets, and fries super sized, just get the big mac and fries. things that are reasonable, but wont make you miss eating what you want. you sort of have to ween yourself off the shit food, but the quantity is more important.

    I don't really eat a lot of fast food. I eat a lot of Mexican out, which is terrible. I eat at home most of the time but eat a lot of breads. Plenty of salad dressing on my salads. Fried foods and deserts are a weakness. Takeout pizza. I get the whole portion control thing. Atkins just seemed like the easiest given my record of lack of will power.
