May 20, 2019 / By Jeffry Question:
Me and my husband have been on the Atkins diet for 5 days now, I know that's not very long but on the first days I almost felt fatter I keep weighing myself and I haven't lost a pound and neither has my husband. I have been riding a stationary bike for 30 minutes a day, and I am trying to keep to the diet. I haven't cheated on it at all. How long does it take to start seeing results? I'm not looking for anything big, just want to see it go down a few so I know I'm doing it right. I don't feel like I'm on a diet, I think thats why I haven't given up yet I guess. I'm not hungry at all and that's awesome

Atkins almost works immediately because it throws your body into a state of ketosis. It fails miserably as a long-term solution for weight control. Several lawsuits have failed against the Atkins empire because of "freedom of speech laws" and some carefully worded warnings in his books. Most major health organizations have strongly criticized the diet as being unsupported by scientific evidence and dangerous to your health. Dr. Atkins himself died a wealthy fat man. He experienced a heart attack several years before his death. Given the huge profits to be made by the meat and dairy industry and the food industry, the so-called 'low carb' diet continues to be promoted in media.
The most rapid weight loss can be achieved through a water fast as described by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. If you have the money, you can travel to a resort setting and allow on-site doctors to monitor your progress as you consume only pure water. They will make sure you do not run into health issues through the fast. Classes during your stay at the resort also teaches you to consume a whole plant based diet. Long-term, a "whole plant based diet" is more effective and lasting. The only side effect is greater energy, mental alertness, and health.
For my money, I'd choose a diet that is optimal for health and optimal for BMI improvement and maintenance.

I have read the old 1972 book, the 1992, and 2004 version. Along with the changing times, comes another new and updated book, A New Atkins for a New You. It came out in 2010 and has been written by a team of new doctors at Atkins Nutritional's. I have been on the plan since Jan 1, following the new book. I eat lean meats and protein. I am not frying eggs in butter and eating bacon every morning like the 1972 book suggested. We've come a long way! I do eat a lot of eggs. Always have. Good protein for little calories. I have PCOS and it makes me insulin resistant. My dietitian and 2 other doctors told me I needed to cut my carbs. I eat fish, chicken, and boneless pork chops. I limit my beef and when I do eat it I make sure its lean cuts and I do cut off the fat. I get my good fats from avocados and olive oil. I am not starving and I haven't felt better in ages. I dont have the afternoon slumps, I have been able to deal with my insomnia, I don't feel gross after eating meals. I am on the treadmill every day, 20min to 1.5 hours. Since the 1st I have lost 10lbs and gained back my life. I have degenerative disc disease in my lower back and osteoarthritis in my hips. I have to keep moving or I get stiff and it becomes even more painful. Since being on Atkins I feel lighter in my step. I hope to get back to my running body this year! I think the NEW Atkins is a good way to get rid of the bloat and health problems bad carbs can bring.

yes it works...... yes at first its a shock. but if you stick out the first month,never give in the the shock...........then next month your body will be used to it and no more shocking. in just 6 months I went from being 290 lbs down to 180 lbs and have more energy. now been 18 months later but still on atkins diet, I have not gained any weight. still in my jeans of size 32 rather than my old size of 44 this diet only works if you stick to it and like me. I have more energy, im never hungry because I never need to starve myself........ look at me. only people here saying atkins won't work are just the ones who won't stick to it and want to eat like a pig and are fat and lazy. period!!!

Over the counter stuff works right away...basically a giant caffiene boost. Its more short term...they have some appetite suppressant qualities but its mostly an energy boost. Makes you move around more...
Prescription pills....they build up....adipex (phentermine) has a half life of 24 hours about.
So you take one pill...24 hours later...half a pill is still in you.....
Beginning of day 2... Take another pill..you got 1.5 in you.
1.5/2 = .75. Day 3 take another....1.75.
If you studied limits in math....the limit is going to reach 2 pills max although you'll never quite exactly hit 2 pills.
So about 3 days to properly build up. 1.75 is close enough to two pills.
Everyone is different...your body might clear it out faster ....maybe slower...you might need 5 days or increase the dose...or decrease the dose.
