Atkins Diet Week Three: Slow and Steady

The third week of the Atkins Diet was mostly at home – just one short roadtrip to go see the University of Maryland men’s basketball beat Illinois in their final home game of the season.

I managed to stay low carb on the trip by eating meats and salads. On the way there, I got a salad with chicken at a Burger King, and while it was pretty low carb (I only used a third of the dressing), it was nasty tasting.

A bowl of wilted lettuce and some sort of chicken pieces.

On the way back, there were a lot of options at the Maryland House rest area, but I was hungry and wanted something quick, so I could get back on the road. Some Boar’s Head cold cuts did the job.

Overall, I lost three pounds for the week, and now I am down 14 since I started. I will be at the SXSW conference over the next couple weeks, so that will be lots of restaurant meals and nights out, so I will need to plan and be disciplined, so I don’t blow this all up.

Slow and steady wins the race.

  1. Hi,

    You’re missing the big picture. Would you try to learn about affiliate marketing using one book.

    Learn how the body reacts to what you put into it. Once you figure out that good nutrition is not a regiment that you have to endure your weight loss will be a natural by product of that knowledge.

    We never appreciate our health until we lose it.

    Trying To Help,


    1. Thanks Barry –

      I like low carb as a lifestyle, and I think one book can very well be the basis.

      Back in 2001, I wrote a book called “Successful Affiliate Marketing for Merchants” and years of affiliate managers used it as a guide to run affiliate programs. 🙂
