What does everyone think of the Atkins 'pyramid'? Is there a problem with the old pyramid? And why are nuts and beans less desirable than meat? I'd think they'd be better for you, even in the Atkins plan.

Ah, yes, the deprive yourself=more intense cravings thing. When I was "dieting" I found that I always ate around what I craved. To me a diet is temporary, eating healthy is a lifestyle.

I think a well balanced diet with exercise is the way to go ~ giving up carbs for the short term doesn't work, at least not for me. When I deprive myself I crave more. I do find that when I exercise I feel better and crave carbs less.

I had to learn the hard way that there is no such thing as "magical weight loss." There isn't a quick fix. The only true answer to weight loss is to decrease your daily calorie/fat intake and increase your exercise. It boils down to hard work. However, if you really want to do it, you will. Nothing can stop the human willpower factor.
I know that's not the answer we all want to hear, but it is the truth.

I wish *I* could say that I would rather exercise than fight a craving! LOL Sometimes I feel like a three year old throwing a temper tantrum when it comes down to exercise! HA!

I think the main thing a person gets from plans such as the Atkins Program is some routine and a place to start. If someone begins by paying attention to their carb intake, they are going to be paying more attention to their overall eating habits and end up consuming less calories. Once they see results, they feel better about themselves and it gets easier to exercise.... and as you mentioned above, when you exercise more you have to worry less about your calorie intake (unless you get out of control with it, of course).[:<>]
