Atkins/Low carb works best for me too. It's quite amazing how well it works.
But this latest prednisone weight has been especially stubborn. I never had a thick waist but I do now. I also just realized my new vitamin water has much more sugar than I realized...2.5 servings in the bottle, not just one....maybe that's why I'm struggling!
I also love to eat. Actually I find the hardest thing about
Atkins is adjusting to smaller portions once you go back to eating "normally." Oh, and I miss the fruit!
