Cinnamon Sugar English Muffins French Toast Recipe

Plus, One of my restances to going back on a diet like this was how people all too often abuse "Atkins" style diets. There's absolutely no debate in my mind that this style of diet works - I lost over 100 pounds following a very strict regimen ... but then gained more back after quitting.
