My best advice is just to have your house full of foods that you can eat; carry around a bottle of water at all times and drink drink drink; and just get started, smile I find nothing more motivating then getting into it and seeing results.

exactly. figure out what you're going to want to eat and always have some snacks on hand. Drink a LOT (water or green tea are the two things I stick to) and just make sure that you understand the first few days can be tough, but once you get past that you will probably feel better than you can imagine.

find some recipes that fit the bill before you start so you have fun things to look forward to food wise as well.

And have "legal treats" on hand. That can make all the difference on a rough day smile

I usually eat low carb, and decided to try MM. I joined Miracle-Ville, and started the diet. It was difficult to get used to eating differently as I was accustomed to Atkins, but I was determined to give it a shot. You are not supposed to weigh yourself for the first 8 weeks. After 4 weeks my jeans were starting to feel tight so I was getting a little worried, but I figured I'd just soldier on for the full 8 weeks and hope for the best. I sent Diane an email and told her my results, but she said I was obviously not eating enough and should eat more free foods. I did just that, and at the end of the 8 weeks I was 6lbs up!!!! I was not impressed........ went back to Atkins and lost the 6lbs.

I'm going to have to check out this diet. People are often coming in to our clinic with the "newest" diet and often I look at them and shudder. With very few exceptions, really! There have been a few that have piqued my interest straightaway and those have usually been quite helpful to people.

I want to know what exactly the program is for this metabolism miracle.

I kept up mostly with the diet with a few splurges, but I've still piled on the weight and nothing that worked before is working now, like ww. I avoid sugars because I feel awful after and I exercise as much as I can fit in, but nothing is working. I'm exhausted all the time, but I usually can't sleep when I try to. I can't say my baby keeps me up either because he usually sleeps 10 hours a night. I also get bad headaches and acid reflux, and had fertility problems due to PCOS. Oh, and my memory is absolutely awful, I am beyond mommy brain, sometimes it's frightening, I'm getting scared to go back to work because I really need my brain to function there. Sorry for the novel. smile I'm just hoping that this lifestyle will be the answer for me. I am also waiting to get into see my doctor to get my TSH levels checked in case that's part of it. Do you have any advice on getting started and sticking to it?


WOW, firefly - it's like you were typing my story out! Except that my diet during pregnancy wasn't as good, so I did gain during. AND after. But for the last 5 years since my baby was born, I felt pretty much exactly the same way you did. I quit all carbs on July 29th of 2011. I now eat fruit, but that's it for carbs. The first week was HELL as my body was detoxing, and it FELT like I'd been on hard drugs or something. Shakes, migraines, dizziness, nausea, etc. That feeling passed.

To date: I still maintain a carb/gluten free diet. I exercise 3 to 5 times a week (although I slacked off this past month since I was travelling for Christmas), and I've lost 80 pounds since that day. My PCOS is also under control for the first time ever WITHOUT the use of Metformin. Normal periods the last few months. My insulin, blood sugar, and other hormones are all finally NORMAL too. (I had a blood test just last week, so that good news is current.). My sleep patterns are better, I feel more rested and my extremely fuzzy brain is sharp again.

My specialist OBGYN told me last month that my body cannot handle carbs, and that it's a good thing I got off them. She told me that in the future, if we get pregnant again, to keep eating that way, because it's a very healthy diet (when you do it right).

How I got started: if it helps, I drank protein shakes (chocolate ones) to help me get 'extra' protein for the first few weeks. It also helped me work through the "chocolate cravings". I got the Costco brand "Premiere Nutrition". Each has only 1g of carbs, and 30g of protein. I don't drink them any more, but they got me through the first few weeks, while I was trying to figure out how to cook/eat a balanced diet without bread, pasta, rice, and sugar.

During those weeks, I ate unlimited salads, veggies, and made sure to have a healthy sources of protein (eggs, chicken breast, fish, etc). And 1 to 2 of those chocolate shakes at "snack times".

Anyway, they helped me at first, so if you have trouble giving up the carbs, it might help you too.

Glad you feel better Dayna! Most people with PCOS feel much better on a low carb diet.

Oh no! That's not good at all! How much does the MM differ from Atkins?
