I am on low carb and have been on it for some time.. I am now on maintenance which means I don't want to lose much weight but I don't want to gain any either.. I am close to my desired weight and I maintain it.. At one time I weighed 358 pounds.. I went on Atkins and I am now down to 210 and holding.. That's about 148 pounds lost.. I have a story that goes with this, but I won't go into it now..
