After looking at these classes and debating if I should take any, I finally took the plunge and signed up today at "Atkins University" on their Web site to take the class "Atkins vs. the South Beach Diet: Understanding the Differences". I've always wondered how the plans differ. It's free and I've been signed up at the Web site for ages, so it just took a couple mouse clicks. There's also a cheapy little discussion board for students and instructors to talk. Depending on my experience with this, I'll consider other classes later.
Time to plunge in! Here we go!
