Question: I know that eating little or no carbs with exercise is the basis of the program, but will eating certain foods give a boost in weight loss? I heard that eating foods high in fat like mayo and avacado can help. Please let me know.

Shaun, You should eat balanced for your metabolism. Just before Dr. Adkins untimely death he was beginning to shift his thinking away from an all protein diet. (It's rough on the kidneys.) Balanced nutrition is the key to successful permanent weight loss. You actually MUST EAT to lose weight. I know it sounds counter intuitive, but it's the way our bodies are designed. When you feed your body the proper nutrition it does miraculous things. I didn't believe it at first either until I was convinced to try it. Holly cow, it actually worked. I wasn't hungry, my energy came back, I was sleeping like a baby and I lost inches and pounds. It makes no sense because we've been bamboozled. Here's what you should do immediately. Get yourself some real food and have a decent meal, complete with complex carbs (no white carbs), protein and fat. Yes, I said fat. Did you know your brain needs fat to function? Low fat and no fat is killing people. Next find out what type your metabolism is. You can do that for free at several sites on the Internet. Or you can Google "easydietforlife diet-assessment" without the quote marks to get to a good one. Once you do that and know the proportion of carbs, fats and proteins you should be eating get your hands on a copy of “GOING FAT2Lean”. It will simplify it all, give you the simple rules how Mother Nature designed our bodies. You'll learn what to eat, when to eat it and how much to eat. You'll also learn how to motivate yourself and stick with the program, because you will learn this stuff once, but use it for the rest of your life. So, I hope that this has been worth the read. Let me know how it goes for you. I am certain that once you've been convinced of the truth you'll be saying good bye to pounds and inches forever. Good Luck, RICK

Hi , firstly I would recommend you analyze your portions of food, look at carbs and fats especially. Then drink a minimum of 2 glasses of water per day, avoid eating carbohydrates or lipids 2-3 hours before sleeping as they are digested differently at night. Should you require quicker loss i recommend you also up your calorie expenditure ( do more cardio ), also you might want to consider adding resistance or weight training to your workout regime as this boosts metabolism as well as toning and defining your body.

When your muscles move they use a chemical reaction. The bi-product of that is another chemical called adenosine. Adenosine travels up the bloodstream into the brain where it starts to make you tired so you can sleep later. Caffeine is the working drug of choice because it blocks adenosine from working. So you can work your muscles and never get tiered. Ketosis is a starvation state. It's what happens when we deny our body of new stored energy, so it has to use the fat as a last resort. It's actually very unnatural, dangerous, and often makes you more fat later. Caffeine isn't going to make you suddenly fat again if you are on Atkins. I think the issue would be that you don't have the stored salts and potassium to deal with the raise in blood pressure from coffee. I imagine it would make you feel woozy.

--->Avoid foods high in sodium and nitrates, which commonly include processed meats, such as hot dogs and lunch meat. According to "Atkins for Life," nitrates encourage the body to retain fluid, thereby causing weight gain or slowing weight loss. --->Count foods with hidden carbohydrates against your carbohydrate limit for the day. "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution" mentions, for example, that some foods have fewer than 1 g of carbohydrates on the nutrition label as opposed to 0 g. Since the nutrition label makes this distinction, you should count these foods as 1 g of carbohydrates to avoid eating too many of them and inadvertently consuming too many carbohydrates. --->Avoid foods and drinks with artificial sugar. "Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution" mentions that some of these foods and drinks, such as diet sodas and sugar-free candy, have a moderate impact on the blood glucose level. --->Exercise at least 30 minutes per day three days per week. "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution" mentions that exercise improves overall health and aids in weight loss.

swap out brown rice or quinoa yes even the new super food which both add up to about 220 calories per cup for cauliflower or roasted peppers that are only about 30 calories per cup

There's only ONE WAY to lose fat - and that is to create a calorie deficit. However, there are two ways to create a calorie deficit - one is to decrease your food intake so you are eating less than you burn, the other is to increase your exercise and activity so you are burning more than you eat. Of the two ways to create a calorie deficit, burning the fat is far superior to starving it. You see, cutting calories too much causes weight loss at first, but it also causes muscle loss and it eventually leads to a decrease in metabolism, so the weight loss stops. This is very common on conventional diets, right? You lose weight in the beginning, but then you hit a plateau that you just can't break through. Cutting calories even more at this point only digs you even into a deeper "metabolic hole." Eating more of the right foods (up to a certain point) actually increases your metabolic "heat" like putting wood on a fire. Food is energy; food is fuel, and it produces (metabolic) heat. Exercise burns calories and creates a calorie deficit, but the real advantage of exercise over diet is that exercise increases your metabolism, dieting slows it down. Exercise also has major health benefits, while starvation can only create health problems. So if you eat more (healthy foods) and exercise more, you get a double increase in metabolism. If you eat less and exercise less you get a double decrease in metabolism. That makes complete sense doesn't it? The IDEAL exercise program for fat loss has a combination of cardiovascular (aerobic) training and strength training. But ultimately, you're not likely to stick with exercise long term unless you choose activities you enjoy - so pick something you enjoy, even if it doesn't follow the guidelines of "traditional" fat loss programs. It's better to do something than nothing, and all exercise counts. Some people may have orthopedic problems which limit the type of exercise they can do. But nearly everyone can walk. So if you can walk, then walk. And almost everyone can do some type of strength training. Instead of focusing on what you can't do or what you don't like to do, direct your attention to what you CAN do and what you would like to do. Maybe you don't like being couped up inside all the time. Maybe you'd prefer hiking or jogging outside. Or maybe boxing or martial arts sounds cool to you. Maybe you like basketball or tennis. Maybe you'd enjoy classes, or yoga or pilates. Your options are nearly unlimited, but you have to do something or your body will begin to deteriorate. As you increase your lean muscle mass, you'll also get a permanent increase in your resting metabolic rate. Muscle is what drives your metabolism, keeps you young and makes you look more physically attractive. Others will notice how good you look, and you'll feel better about yourself too. Yes, you may lose weight from diet alone, but you're likely to end up a "skinny fat person" with a slow metabolism and very little lean body mass (not to mention, you'll probably gain back all the fat) Last, but not least, be careful what you say to yourself over and over because that tends to program your subconscious mind and create your self image. If you've been repeating to yourself for years, "I'm not big on exercise" or "I'm not an exercise person", that eventually becomes a part of your identity. You always tend to behave in alignment with your identity in order to stay "true to yourself." Maybe when you look in the mirror after just a few weeks and see your body start to change you'll begin to like enjoy exercise a LOT. It can get addictive, you know. The endorphins that are released when you exercise are like opiates. Ever hear of "runners HIGH?" Ever hear of an "exercise addict?" What would YOU rather be hooked on? Forget about popping pills, Your body is the most exquisite pharmacy on the planet. Exercise is a better fat burner, health creator, energy producer and anti-depressant than any man-made drug will EVER be. Exercise can be fun and FEEL GOOD too. Human beings were meant to move. Bodies don't lose their function by being used too much and "wearing out", they lose their function by not being used enough and "rusting out." So if the positive benefits of exercise don't motivate you enough, then just picture yourself 10, 20 years from now and imagine what will happen to you if you DON'T start exercising today.
