    Every diet has health risks, so does packing around extra weight with a deadly risk of diabetes and heart conditions in the family.

    I meant like heart probs from all the meat and stuff, I had a friend that went on it once he lost alot of weight, we traveled together and I tried it, I didn't last long, the craving for carbs got the best of me and I would hit the pizza place and eat all I could stand!

    I imagine eliminating one food group from your overall diet can't be terribly easy on you especially if you're eating a ton of red meats without adding fish, chicken, and leaner cuts. In reality though, diabetics do nearly the same thing because carbs ARE sugars and those have to be severely limited to control their diabetes.
    I really have a problem giving up the carbs too, but it seems easier than counting points and weighing every morsel that hits my lips :).
    As I understood it, if you followed the diet as its actually written, it can lower cholesterol.
    You have to eat a ton of greens as part of the diet as well.

    My father-in-law is diabetic, he just takes an extra shot when he eats what he's not suppose to..lol.
    He's actually pretty aggravating to be around, when it comes to food. One minute it's "I can't eat this/that" next minute, he's got the biggest piece of Bday ice cream cake of anybody on his plate, and shooting up an extra shot

    When I was on it I ate everything that wasn't nailed down except for carbs. Roast beef, ham, eggs, cheese, mayonnaise and more. Eat, eat, eat and amazingly I still dropped about a pound every day. Then I once put myself on a different diet. Small bowl of cereal or one Aunt Jemima's waffle for breakfast. Turkey or tuna sandwich and an apple for lunch (loaded with mayonnaise) and small salad with some sort of carb (potato salad or macaroni salad out of the container from the store) for dinner. No rum and cokes no beer, no sugar laden sodas. In two months I dropped 40 lbs. Weight came off so fast everyone laughed at me and told me I had aids. I was hungry, no, I was friggin' starving for two months but I stuck to my guns. Of course I was more active back then too, which helped burn the fat off.

    A ton of greens is good! When I did it with Ted, all I ate was meat, chicken pork ect, eggs, I don't think I touched a veggie, this was in the 90's, I know the diet has evolved through trial and error, in the short time I did it, it actually raised my cholesterol, that much I do remember.

    Yikes! Yeah, just not carbs but required to eat a lot of veggies, you're actually supposed to get 20-25 carbs from non starchy veggies, that takes A LOT.
    Plus it keeps a person from getting, ahem, stopped up. LOL

    I made my own corn tortillas for enchiladas the other day. They sucked. The seven layer dip made up for it though

    .....and the cherry crisp with vanilla icecream was excellent

    I don't think I have heard it and you can PM it to me if you want. It sounds like you haven't heard my NY/buddy/good buddy joke yet either.

    Yesterday I Papa John's. I like their cheesy bread sticks as much as I like their pizza! Today, I'm going to put on a big kettle of pinto beans. Something about beans that just goes with gloomy, rainy days.

    I'm still thinking about what's for dinner. Don't know what to have. I know roast chicken's out it won't be defrosted in time. Beef fajitas sounds like a plan.
