  • Darren C. Morgan - Very nice ballJust played these for the first time the other day after playing Calloway Tour IS for a while. Much better feel plenty of spin around the green and very soft feeling. I was on a tight course so I was hitting 5 wood off the tee and it carried 200+ much better than some drivers in our 4-some. The ball did scuff a bit on a few mishits but I finished the 18 using the one ball and it still putted true enough to hole a 12'er on 18. I'm hooked. BTW I hit in the mid-90's so maybe not a great ball for the people who can make it go where they want all the time.
  • Some - 171 lbs to 147 lbs It works but go by the bookI actually did a research paper in college on the Atkins Diet since I was already doing it and having great results. What I found was that the Internet and reviews in magazines were almost criminal in their summary of this diet/lifestyle plan. Statements about how there are no vegetables or fruit (when you are required from day 1 to eat 2 salads and berries are a wonderful focus), how you could die, mixing medical terminology up in their head (confusing "ketosis/BDK" with "acidosis") and printing it as gospel on paper. Their slander and general lack on vetting/investigation by the average person was effective and many still say "isn't that the all meat diet?". No, it is not.

    What it is however is a huge impact to the food industry: the sugar industry, the bread industry, the pasta industry, the cola industry, the corn syrup industry, the fast food industry, etc. You may remember the plummeting bread sales when Atkins came out. These losses were noticeable and they were sustained because Atkins was working for those who tried it.

    Dr. Atkins (of Cornell University) asks you to tell your doctor before you do the diet, checking with your doctor as you go through, self test daily/weekly. Gives you the science and all of his medical references behind the plan. If you are fair, you will read for yourself the epileptic studies using a similar diet and their amazing results. What you learn about food and your body is priceless. What you learn about how sugar and foods that turn into sugar in your body such as bread and potatoes, how they block fat burning, and how deplete your energy you cannot know until you try. Waking up at 5am w/o an alarm clock feeling like you want to run a mile is amazing. I did get tested before and my triglycerides and cholesterol numbers were better. I did walk as he instructs and drank plenty of water.

    Like anything else it is not perfect. I do not endorse artificial sweeteners which make the diet easier to ease into but stevia and xylotol are noted as options. However, it is sound and you must realize this diet/lifestyle was not something Dr. Atkins just dreamed up to write a book about. He was struggling himself when he started medical school and began researching and adjusting his diet to keep up with his round the clock profession. It was refined in his clinic for many years before the writing.

    This is all in the book and what I found regarding others "opinions" is that they obviously NEVER READ IT! There is another issue in that it works so well, people tend to ignore the 4 stages Dr. Atkins maps out and extend the 1st stage to lose even more weight. This is not necessary as by the time you get to the 3rd week, you body is shedding fat as a routine and like anything else that has been planned out, not following can cause issues. And of course cheating. I stopped and started Atkins 3 times because it was soooo very hard to break the sugar connection/addiction. Let's face it: ketchup, fries, buns, bagels, shakes, pasta, mashed potatoes, pizza, EVERY frozen dinner, muffins, every meal has a boat load of sugar! So cheating intentionally or unintentionally affects your results and thus some do not follow the plan to restart but instead tweak with their own idea of how to correct their indulgence.

    I recommend this yellow book, follow it as directed by it and your doctor and you cannot help but see results, especially if you currently participate in the S.A.D (standard American diet) and if you realize you need to eat differently forever, not just until you lose a few. When we are overweight we are killing our energy, our opportunity, ourselves. No tasty food for a few minutes is worth it. It's that simple.
  • Arthur "Arthur" - Lots of great women...and a delightful surpriseWhen the binder arrived I quickly opened it up and thumbed through the women: Sarah Palin, Michelle Malkin, Megyn Kelly, other blond woman from Fox News, other other blond woman from Fox News, other other other blond woman from Fox News. The entire time I eagerly anticipated the page featuring my favorite conservative warrior: Michele Bachmann. After finally reaching the end of the binder there was Bachmann, sporting the most elegant Chanel outfit, but it wasn't Michele; it was her *fierce* husband, MARCUS Bachmann!
  • J. Cole - Outstanding Camera for the MoneyI have been asked to review the Tachyon XC Micro twice and I haven't done it until now, because I wanted to test it thoroughly first. Prior to buying the Tachyon, I owned an Epic. The Tachyon is a far superior camera and a great value for the money. The video quality is far superior to the Epic. The colors are rich and the image is clear. The Epic is said to have better audio and it does, until you put it in its "waterproof" enclosure, then it is just the same as the Tachyon, since the Tachyon is always water ready. The Epic fogged up after about 15 minutes and the Tachyon showed no signs of problems after three hours in a kayak.

    The Tachyon XC Micro is rugged, well designed, compact, easy on batteries, reads memory cards up to 32 gigs, and works every bit as well as the manufacturer said it would. I am very pleased and would recommend it to a friend without hesitation.
