Living The Atkins Style

In the style of Gilligan’s Island

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a weight-loss trip
That started on the Atkins forum,
A board with many tips.

Atkins was a mighty fillin plan,
Good suppers that’s for sure.
The dieters signed up one day
For a weight loss assured
A weight loss assured.

The craving started getting tough,
The Atkins plan was lost,
Thanks to the food choices on this plan
The dieters showed who’s boss
The dieters showed who’s boss.

The tips they found on the Atkins forum
gave them all a smile.

Meet Grami Cin
And Georgie too
Here’s Jennifer and Fit 4life
A movie star
The moderator and

Livin–the Atkins Style.

So this is the tale of the waste-a-ways, they’re here for a long, long time.
They’ll have to make the best of things,
Up through owl they climb.

The first-rate friends are chipper too,
They’ll do their very best,
To make you all as comfortable,
On the forum I like best.

No toast! No grains! No Demon Carbs!
Not a one thing sugary,
Slowing down the Glucose,
You’ll lose fat you’ll see.

So join us here this week my friends,
You’re sure to get a smile,
As you watch the weight melt off…
Livin—the Atkins Style.

As always, comments are welcome and encourage.

    Dear Terry,
    Now I know why you did not respond to my question the other day on the Atkins web site. Keep up the good work.
    My journey has taken many twists and turns allowing me to enjoy living in Scotland, Australia and England. My next adventure includes my Atkins journey. I will be following your journey also.

      Thanks for stopping by Barbara, as you follow that road with all it’s twist in turns remember that you are in control of the the reigns, and your ultimate destination is the one you choose. Do not leave fate to guide you.

      Ask me that question again, apparently I did not see it. Talk with you soon my friend.

    Nice poem! I loved the words and rhythm- all of it, in fact 😉

    Waiting to see your other insightful pieces, Terry.
