Doc told her to do the atkins diet. I've done very low carb and can't imagine a 0 carb. I know she is going to have trouble with it so I'm wondering about what her options are as far as appetite suppressants.
She is 49 with high cholesterol and high blood sugar. I don't want anything extreme or anything that will raise BP. I'd rather not have a crazy stim effect either but some is alright.
Remember she is 49, not some 22 year old nut.
