It sounds like you are already on version of Atkins with the low carbs. I believe the Atkins diet will work, but only if it is adopted as a lifestyle change (longer term) than a diet or short term fix. In Atkins, primarily the emphasis is on increasing protein and minimizing carbs, with the exception of fruits and vegetables. Actress Courtney Thorne-Smith from the show Melrose Place has been the Spokesperson for Atkins for several years and you can check her out (if you have not already).

I have done this diet off and on for years and think it's great. I totally disagree with the other person's answer about it causing heart attacks, that's just hogwash. If you have read the book then you understand the principle behind it, did you determine which body type you have? A, B, or C? It was while reading that section that I had my revelation about my health and finally an understanding of my eating, sleeping, and energy habits. One thing that I love about this diet is that while I am on it, I FEEL great. I wake up in the morning feeling rested and I have tons more energy all day long. I sleep better, and I find it easier to concentrate and focus on work etc.. I also don't have huge cravings for sweets or carbs, in fact I sometimes have to remind myself to eat because my appetite drops a lot. One thing I have found however, is that if you don't have a lot of weight to lose, say something like 20 pounds or more, it tends to not be as successful. I am not sure why, but the more overweight you are, the better you respond to this diet. If you are only trying to lose something like 10 pounds, I would skip it and go the standard exercise / eat healthy routine. Lastly, I found that the book reviews of the Atkins Diet book on Amazon.com to be enormously helpful when I was trying to decide whether or not to go on this diet. There are literally hundreds of reviews of people who have been on the diet and posted their experience. I recommend a few hours reading those reviews so you can get a broad spectrum of answers to better help you make a decision. Good luck!!

That diet is pretty bad for you. People die of heart attacks from it. Your body needs carbs as its main energy source. You need a balanced diet to maintain a healthy weight. Eat right (don't eat too much, don't eat bad food), exercise, live healthy and you will be healthy and look great!

Okay I've performed each so ... First of all in case you've simplest misplaced five lbs in a single month on a vegetarian vitamin you often have not been exercise and/or you will have taken in too many energy. Just seeing that it is non carnivorous doesn't suggest its low calorie. Now as for ATKINS run....do not do it. I inspiration I was once so wise and so did all of the humans I satisfied to move on Atkins motive I misplaced 29 lbs in a month, BUT... now not simplest did the burden come correct again the minute I obtained again to the truly international and ate a couple of carbs. however I received again extra, plus I grew to become a B*tch even as in this vitamin. CRANKY!!! and it was once sooooo difficult to pay attention as your mind has no power as a result of the loss of carbs. It's so bodily bad too. It was once a laugh for the primary couple of days, bacon, cheese, steaks, salmon, nuts... AKA fats fats fats fats fats fats...then you definately begin to consider like a pan of oil. Makes me unwell recalling this vitamin. How approximately including a bit lean protein to the veggie vitamin and pastime the burden off, then you can have a organization toned frame.

Hi Maryam, Every Diet Plans has their own unique ways "working" and not everyone are able to lose and maintain their weight loss on the same diet program. If you are doing well in you past Diet, why don't you continue? Just my 2 cents. Wish you all the best.

As I wrote yesterday, I followed the Atkins diet and lost 45lbs in 12 weeks. It is not unhealthy at all, so please don't listen to all the others who say it is. Put quite simply, the Atkins diet doesn't cut out all good foods. Just those which are high in carbohydrates. This is mostly sugars and flours (starches). And, it doesn't cut out all carbs. but limits the amount you should consume. You can eat as much meat as you like, have as much water, diet drinks and alcohol (no wine or vodka) as you like. You can eat fruits and vegetables which are low in carbs(there's lots of them) and remember your not cutting all carbs from your diet. The book recommends that you start by limiting your daily intake of carbs to 20/day for the first 2 weeks, then increase it by 5, to 25 the next week. If you continue to loose weight with the additional 5 carbs added, add another 5 in the fourth week etc. until your weight loss stops, then cut it back by 5 again. Believe me when I tell you, you will lose weight, you will feel better, and you will have more energy than you have had in years. Remember, no breads, no potato, no rice, no sugar. Simply put, cut out flour and sugar, and you will win.
