April 23, 2019 / By Elfreda Question:
Hi! I know that Atkins is HARD for vegetarians, and some people say it's BAD for you in general. I want to do a little jump start to losing these 10 pounds asap! I want to lose maybe 5 by January 8 for my birthday, if not more! How would I do this Atkins 5 day jump start? What would I eat as a vegetarian. And what can I not eat??? Are raw veggies ok for a snack or are they too high in carbs?

Low carbing for a week is a great way to jump start weight loss. It helps bring your appetite down. It's only for a short period of time, so it really should not put your health in danger.
Eggs, cheese, tofu, nuts, natural unsweetened peanut butter will be important. Soy-based veggie burgers like Boca are also low carb. Check the label and deduct the fiber grams from the total carb grams (fiber doesn't count toward your carb limit).
In general, green veggies are low carb. String beans, broccoli, anything leafy, zucchini, etc. Low carb veggies come in other colors as well, but that's a long list!
Avoid most root veggies, beans (other than string beans) and all fruit and grains. You can add back whole grains later during your diet.
When you snack, eat some protein with or without veggies. Don't snack on just veggies alone. A handfull of nuts, a hard boiled egg, a piece of string cheese, etc. If buying flavored tofu products, check the carb count on the label. Tofu itself should be fine, but some of the pre-cooked types are flavored with sugar.

I've tried all different diets, and the weight loss is only temporary. I finally tried diet pills on the market are made from Hoodia. I saw this stuff on ABC News. It's all natural and safe, and it works! My wife took it for a month and dropped 20 pounds. I took it for a month and lost about 13 (but I didn't exercise).
I bought the natural hoodia from this website: http://www.alllsite.info/free-diet-pills.php . I checked the web site address so I can post it here and I saw they're running a promotion now to get a free 2 week sample for only $4.97! I'm going to order this supply for my wife and give it to her for Christmas =)
IMO Atkins is a crap diet that's incredibly unhealthy. Stick with carbohydrates that are from whole, unprocessed foods....stay away from sweets, softdrinks and eat a balanced diet. If you're eating healthy, and eating the right amount of calories for the size person you want to be, as long as you don't have some kind of health problem, you are going to lose weight and your body will be better off in the long run-- because the only weight that stays off is when it's accompanied by behavior modification-- your newer, healthier way of eating to keep your body the size you want to be.
Add some exercise and muscle building activities. Increased muscle mass increases your metabolism.

Find a different diet....
I'm not saying the Atkins way is good or bad but you have to be able to commit to the total package when taking on this diet. Why not go with what you have already chosen for yourself and cut all animal products and be a very, very commited vegitarian. If you already do that then what you would eat on the Atkins diet....veggies right,,, and they are not even legal til you have been on it for weeks.

You do not know enough about nutrition to be embarking on any kind of diet. You seriously need to talk to a nutritionist. I mean, worrying if raw veggies make a good snack?! Of course they do! Do NOT attempt Atkins (which is a terrible idea for anyone, let alone vegetarians) or any other kind of diet until you have EDUCATED yourself!

You simply getting off your booty and cracking down will be the jump start to your weight loss. Seriously. The weight at the beginning is always the easiest to lose.

Try dr. Ornish's low-fat vegetarian diet. On this diet you can eat fruits,vegetables,and beans whenever you are hungry. No animal products besides egg whites and a cup of low or non fat yogurt or milk a day. and processed foods and nuts also aren't included. Try it for two weeks.

Top weight loss tips
Today there is too much information available on losing weight that has become more confusing and sometimes difficult to follow. It’s actually very easy to lose weight if you follow my weight loss tips.
* Be in right frame of mind
Before you can start any diet program you need to be in the right frame of mind. If you do not feel good about yourself you probably will not want to choose healthy foods. You cannot expect the act of going on a diet to make you feel better about yourself. The only way you can choose to eat a healthy diet to lose weight is if you have a positive self-image.
* Eat whole food
Top weight loss tips
Eat whole foods that are as natural as possible. When you eat whole foods that are full of nutrients your body will know how much to eat and how much not to eat. You do not have to count calories because your body is a wonderful machine.
* Eat fresh fruit
Eat at least two servings of fresh fruit every day. Choose whatever type of fruit is in season.
* Drink enough water
Drink the best weight loss supplement known to man, water. Most people do not know the difference from being hungry for food or thirsty for water. A great deal of times people eat when they should drink. Most likely you will not feel as hungry if you are getting enough water. You will be satisfying the thirst, which is confused for hunger. Water also helps you digest food better. Drinking water before you eat will help fill you up.
* Always chew your food
Always chew your food well. Chewing your food well will ensure that you get the most nutrients out of your food. Getting the most nutrients will satisfy your body therefore you will eat less. Another benefit of chewing well is that it helps aid in digestion.
* Take small meals
Eat small, frequent meals in a day. Large meals tax your digestion system, making it work harder. Taking too much time in between meals makes you hungrier for the next meal.
* Include protein at meal
Include good sources of protein at meal, chicken, fish, legumes, peanut, cottage cheese, eggs or yogurt.
* Shut off TV while eating
Shut off the TV whenever you eat – that includes meals and snacks. Studies show that we automatically eat larger portions when we snack in front of the tube, and typically those foods are high in fat and sugar, which means excess calories!
* Increase your physical activity
Increase your physical activity. Most people are over weight because of a lack of physical activity. Start walking more, bicycling, walks your dog for longer periods of time, swim, dance and leave the car at home when you can. It’s important that you choose a physical activity that you enjoy because you’ll stick with it.
