Thanks a bunch Janet. i visited the grocery store this morning before work and purchased some plain greek yogurt, some more skim milk cheese and some sugar free gelatin. Today seems alot better I guess my body is starting to adjust. My stomach has seemed to go down some as well. I will be going to purchase a digital scale for home cause my manual scale is hard to read. I could use the one at work but I would like to measure before I get dressed in the mornings. Thanks again your information has really helped cause I wanted to stop but I want things to change, I'm tired of being overweight, I never was overweight all my life then I turned 32 and got sick and everything changed. Well...fat watch out cause you can't stay here....lol...

The first few days of any low carb diet can be rough..your body is completely changing its fuel source. Read Dr Eades tips http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/...-low-carb-pt-i/. And all the great Newbie Tips here. Be sure you get enough salt, broth is good for that and filling too. After 3-5 days of adjustment, many experience increased energy, and after a few short weeks less joint pain, improved skin, and definitively less bloating. That initial water loss feels great..hang in there. Both Stillman and Dukan present their plans as fast and short-term solutions, and then give different options for how to keep it off after reaching goal.

hello, and welcome to Active Low-Carber Forums

I suspect there are more than a few folks following a Stillman-like program, but who choose to call it something else . And so, they don't post here in this thread.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear elainajh, please keep posting here. I'm giving serious thought to a few weeks of Dr. Stillman's QWL to (a) heal my gut (years of antibiotics and NSAIDs) and (b) weight loss . I'm sure that other Stillmaners will surface, eventually.

Now years beyond the one time I lost weight with four weeks on Stillman, it was impossible to stick to a second time. I was cold, maybe too low calorie, and just didn't do well without vegetables and some fats, even getting a cold and I had not been sick before or after regular LC. High protein without fats and carbs may be a quick fix in pounds, but I think the way the weight is lost is less healthy. Where I keep what muscle I have left and feel strong at 64 with LC and IF, after Stillman it was more "flabby". I even ate a more liberal Dukan version in 2012, but don't plan at this point trying 'second time around'. For a few weeks though, give it another try and share the results.

Stillman was my first exposure to low carb eating way back in the 60's before Atkins came on the scene. It worked wonderfully for me. I prefer ketogenic eating with fat but I think it's always good to change things up now and then.

I started last week Stillmans QWL I'm down about 4lbs after 3 days of doing it? However I do Billy Blanks Bootcamp 45mins 4-5 times a week as well. It tones my arms and legs pretty good, I have been doing it on and off for about 10 years it's my fav work out... Also I was reading he does not like for people to work out too hard. He even mentions jogging is too strenuous in his "Inches Off" book. I am going to disregard this advice as I don't want to get "flabby".

I also have done this diet about two years back. I lost a quick seven pounds but never stayed on it long enough due to Christmas and my family staying at my house! We are Italian and big pasta eaters!!! So I do have a little experience with this diet. Last summer I went from 150-135lbs (April-July) However I ate protein and veggies. I also worked out. However it seems every time I go back to work (teacher) I gain 10lbs again. It's like a never ending cycle!

I've learned that this is a never ending journey. There are no starts and stops. It's what it is but it can be done and enjoyed! Good luck!
