I've tried this diet.

Big results.

Now I'm doing weight watchers and I can have a donut if I want one.

I just can't have the entire box.

Krispy Kreme donuts taste great when they are hot. They melt in your mouth.

But they are appalling, with probably something like 7 tablespoons of fat in them. Really disgusting.

beli a Krispy Kreme will probably open out your way before too long and then you can join my underground movement of the Anti Krispy Kreme Association, aka AKKA.

The first outside north America opened near me last year or something some time and since then, we alone have probably tripled the Atkins participants numbers.

I get abused every time I share concern over the people using this Atkins cult, so I will shut up.

Im not a big donut fan. We just got a Hans Cafe/noodle house opened up near me. That I like. Noodles

Im used to be abused. Beli impersonates Beli at work:
' No, your computer monitor does not give off 'radiation', theres more radiation in the bricks in the walls than emitting from your monitor'

'No, its not okay to ignite a 1600 degree celcius fire outside under the combustable gum trees beyond the reach of the fire reel, even if it does look pretty. I dont care what you do in Denmark'

'Atkins diet? Just putting you through to a Safety & Health Officer'


Im used to saying 'its crap', I do it at work. Bono cant find someone to tell him no - well come here mate and ask if you can dive bomb model helicopters over the general public on open day....

Why cant we get something decent like a noodle house here? Instead we get wankerfest coffee houses and 24 hour doughnut shops pretending they are a fast food competitor.
Stupid wankers. Half of Sydney walks around with their heads shoved up their arses anyway. It's such an irrational pet peeve of mine peak hour in the city watching these morons jostle and buzz as they push their way into some stupid chain coffee shop after only just being at home like an hour ago where they have probably had 2 cups of coffee already, that desperate for a caffeine hit they cannot wait another 5 minutes to get to the office so they prance along like the wankers they are with their little cups with the wanky lid, using it as a shield against the caffeineless masses....dickheads.
/rant sidetrack.

I have been bitten by some mozzies on the SOLE of my foot and now its all swollen.

24 hour doughnut shops? Wot, in case you need an emergency doughnut at 3:00am on Monday? We dont have those. We are starting to get wanker coffee houses but not too many just yet. 'They' have just refitted Whitfords shops (ie near me) and we now have 250 shops I think. Not many wanky coffee shops so Im guessing we are not really going to get them here (nor a 7 tablespoons of fat doughnut shop) Maybe in the heart of the city. Dunno, never go there.

Its juice bars here. Tonnes of em. 'Would you like a shot of wheatgrass with that'. But I like juice so I no complain. I think Perth is a bit more health concious than Sydney. (I was born in the 'gong so Ive been over a few times). Last time I was in Sydney there was a MacDonalds on just about every second corner. We dont have so many of here. Lots - just not as many.

PS My Nana, the one that doesnt like movies about nude men swimming in a lake (wtf?) family is from the Blue Mountains. Black ???

Are we supposed to talk about Atkins? Ummm. Know Im really going to offend. Atkins is in the same basket as the cabbage soup diet and the Israeli diet - been around for decades but will always be a fad. (.......ducks under the table......)

Kripsy Kreme (my bane) is 24 hour. It is conveniently located right next to one of the largest leagues clubs in the NRL. Penrith has a lot to be proud of.

And yes, that is just incase you wake up at say 4am on a Wednesday and think "Damn I really NEED a doughnut".
I suspect it is to cater to the beyond innebriated who crawl out of the club and decide a doughnut will help them sober up.

Your nan's fam from either Blackheath (near the top), Blaxland, near the bottom, or Blacktown which is a bit more east?

Anyway, sorry yes, Atkins. I've got many concerns over it. I am very curious because it appears to be so successful and who wouldn't want a diet which allows you to lose weight without excercising? As a diabetic and also a sufferer of Coeliacs, it goes against every nutrional standard ever made and taught not only to me, but everyone worldwide for the last god knows how long. The body needs carbs. Slow burning fuel. Instant hits from sugar are not good, but neither is high fat, protein and cholesterol.

Exactly! And when other products start adding how low carb they are to the front of their boxes, it shows how far it's spread and how everyone's trying to cash in.


I love donuts, but not Krispy Kreme For those who didn't know, for 40 years they were cold, average grocery store donuts sold by the box. If they are more than 12 hours old they are worse than stale bread. Now suddenly someone has the brilliant idea to put them in cases and sell them seperately like a REAL donut, and folks all over the place are thinking they're some kind of delicacy! I can't stand it! I hope it's just another fad and real homemade donuts will find their way back. It bugs me when a chain takes over private or local industry anyway.

Even if Atkins works for some I still don't trust it as healthy. These other things 'work' but are unhealthy:

Phenphen
Aphedra
(sp)
anorexia
bulimia
starvation

will Atkins be added to this list?

I think the only place in the UK that has Krispy Kremes is Harrod's in London.

I have to agree, Atkins isn't a good diet. How can a "diet" that allows you to eat some of the worst stuff available possibly be good for you? Sure, you might lose weight, but if you have terrible health, is that really for the better?

Like Tizer said, you need a balanced diet and exercise. It's not that crazy of an idea.
great post

I've been on a sort of diet these past few weeks.

But I realized after having some pasta the other day for the first time... that I seem to need carbs in order to feel awake, alert, and clear-headed... without some kind of carb source, I have a slight headache and tiredness... is that how it's supposed to be?

Yes, lack of sufficient carbs is a cause of tiredness.
And too much carbs makes you fat. Its a thin line.
