I understand this thread is getting kind of heavy and malicious, so first off I just want to say if something I say is wrong or you disagree with it, let me know don't yell at me, I'm still learning. cwny69 I've been following a lot of threads you've posted lately and not to criticize you in any sort of a negative way but you seem to been off and back on your diet every couple days. From expierience I would say it's better to not diet at all than to be inconsistent ever couple of days, your just putting your couple days work down the train with your cheating.
Being on atkins is a very difficult lifestyle to stay consistent with, I really don't think I could handle it right now. I'm also cutting and have simply chose to lower my calorie intake by about 400 and keep my ratios even (doing the 40/40/20) and getting only clean foods. My personal suggestion to you, if your struggling with consistency, would be to not jump straight into the atkins but try something a bit simpler to work with, like a 40/40/20 and slowly drop your cals below your maintenence. I would say go with this for a few months and slowly teach yourself more self discipline. After that if you want to change your diet over to atkins, go ahead (just not drastically, I'm sure there's a propper way to do it). In doing this, the few months that you spent on the 40/40/20 will teach you the self discipline needed to continue in weightloss and bodybuilding, and at the same time shave off some weight and bodyfat.
