    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    If you have that Atkins book where he is advocating a "meat and millet" diet for diabetics that you were often posting about, would you be so kind as to scan the relevant pages and post them here or email it to me? I can't find any original Atkins quote on that topic on-line thus I would appreciate your help. Thanks,

    I will be glad to find the book if I can and post the relevant pages. It was at the downtown library and I will make an effort to get there. The name of the book is Dr, Atkins Nutrition Breakthrough and if the library still has it I will find it. I will then have to get my daughter to scan it since as you are aware, what I know about such things is close to zero. Do you want me to send it here if I can or somewhere else?

    heretk replied to dteresa's response:
    I think if you can send it here it will be better since other people can read it. Except if it would violate the policy (I doubt, if that is only a couple of pages). You can include it as image (jpg or better png) or if your daughter can scan it and convert it to text it would be even better. I intend to review it impartially (I don't follow Atkins, I don't care one way or the other). Otherwise please email to stanbleszynski at hotmail dot com.
