Atkins diet doesn't suit because the meat makes my hormones go berserk. (I'm perimenopausal.)

I am curious about this. I am also perimenopausal and follow a low carb eating plan. We have access to meat (elk, pork, chicken and beef) that are raised hormone free, but I am not eating much more meat than I was prior to changing the way I eat. I am eating LOTS more vegetables and some fruit. It really does help control both carb cravings and my bg levels. (I do use soy products regularly on religious days of abstinence.)

There are other versions of low carb eating plans around besides Atkins. My favorite is Protein Power by the Drs. Eades. Both Protein Power and Protein Power Lifeplan have wonderful explanations of the eating plan and the effects of different nutrients on our bodies.
