Do It Right the First Time
The best thing about this diet was the meat I could eat, tons of protein, but I've grown tired of consuming all this protein (except the bacon). It has also given me a new appreciation for salad. A salad tastes like heaven to me. I believe I can cut out soda for the most part and can only imagine how sweet a McDonald's coke would probably taste if I had one.
The hardest thing will be to reintroduce the carbs I love back into the diet. I don't want to have that "HOLY SHIT, this tastes amazing!" moment, which spins me into the biggest carb binge known to man. I'm pretty confident that won't happen, but I will need to steer clear of large containers of ice cream for awhile. I might have to buy one of those mini containers, just to limit myself the first time I eat it.
I know most of you are probably thinking, "Jesus, you were only on it for a week, and you're saying you have will power? If you had will power, wouldn't you be able to last longer than a week?" My response, yes, after a week I can say I have will power and yes I could continue for longer than a week, which I may do to finish out my second week. If you have attempted Atkins, you will understand. If you haven't, don't, just do it the right way and don't waste your time.
