Anybody out there using a low carb diet to lose weight?  I am finding that it reduces cravings for sweets, though I do enjoy an Atkins bar as a meal replacement which would count as a sweet thing.  I have 20 lbs to lose having lost down to 153.5 from 170 (my heaviest weight), Have 20 more lbs to lose.  I was 110 lbs (had been sick and was too skinny) when diagnosed with mild OSA, but it has worsened, possibly because of the weight gain.

Mary Z, The only thing that worked for me is a "cleanse" where I cut out all sugar, caffeine, gluten (no bread), and meat. I was amazed how easy it was for the first 10 days. I drank a lot of fruit smoothies (including "green" smoothies) and fresh fruit and vegetables which tasted wonderful (better than ever), whole grains and tofu. I had to leave town due to a sudden death and stay with friends for several days after the 10 days so had to stop it (and gained back the 3 pounds I lost) and am now trying a less radical approach of no sugar, caffeine or alcohol (the later two I don't do anyway). I also just joined a gym and am trying to schedule in time at the gym (hasn't beent oo effectie so far with my work schedule and long commute)... will keep you posted. --Janie

Not to nit pick but grains = gluten. My daughter has coeliac (sp?) and we were shocked at what has gluten. But good job. I went on south beach and lost 55lbs. Sad to say have put it back on. But have not given up "Never give up. Never surrender."
