aka how one Iowa guy lost over 200 pounds and gained his life back.  I can not say enough about how positively the Atkins Diet and low carb in general has been for me.  I went from a 429 pound guy who could barely make it up a flight steps to a guy running half marathons and rejoining the National Guard.  My health is fantastic, and my blood work (cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, heart) could not be better.
