Hi, my name is Kim and i am 19. My mom and I started Atkins together a year ago. It went well for a few months, but eventually we went back to our bad habbits. This summer i have decided to get back on the diet and do it by myself. So far everything has been going really well. But it is really hard for me to eat dinner with my family when they get to eat yummy stuff like pasta and im stuck with the same old dry hamburger, so i have started eating alone because the temptation is too great. I was just wondering how other people dealed with eating with their families who are unwilling to have a low carb life style. I know there is the option of cooking low carb meals that everyone will like, but that only works a few nights of the week.
