The use of a atkinsesque approach to diet has several family members rooting against me openly.  Not just because of the gulf between it and current nutrition theory but because it contradicts their religious views.   They are religious vegetarians. 

Well I’m down sixteen pounds and still dropping.  At most I will loose ten more pounds.

A slice of steak, pulled pork, ribs, grilled chicken in butter sauce, etc is not a bad diet at all….  yum !!!!
