Considering the Atkins Diet or some other low carb program.? Topic: Considering the Atkins Diet or some other low carb program.?

Question: I'm having a lot of difficulty sticking to a diet. Some friends at work started doing Atkins and are really dropping the weight. I'm afraid I will get bored, as I do not like a lot of vegetables. I do like meat and eggs though. Does anyone have any experience with Atkins or other low carb/no carb programs? Please give me your opinions and success stories.

Dads been on the atkins for years now. I don't recommend it, he says with no natural sugar from fruit,veggies etc...he feels dizzy/tired all day. You need carbs in your body, carbs are what your body runs off of, it uses it as fuel. I say take in atleast 50-100 carbs a day. I went on a 1200-1500 cal diet with 2 apples a day + the other meals i ate throughout the day i lost 110 lbs in 7 months.

Read this excerpt from the book "Dieting for Dummies" by Jane Kirby: "Don't cut your calorie level drastically when trying to lose weight; this strategy will backfire. Your body is programmed to defend your usual weight, so when calories are cut severely - to fewer than 800 to 1,000 a day - your metabolic rate adjusts to conserve the few calories you do give your body. The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you’re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better: *1) Burn more calories then you're consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at http://www.primusweb.com/fitnesspartner/... Get an online, desktop, or cell phone diet and fitness calculator. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities. Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight: Adults: http://www.halls.md/ideal-weight/body.ht... Teens/Children: http://www.kidshealth.org/kid/exercise/w... It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. Here are two articles on how to break through a weight loss plateau: http://www.webmd.com/content/article/86/99147.htm http://www.webmd.com/content/pages/18/102117.htm *2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement. Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Avoid “High Glycemic Load Carbs” (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water.

The only successful diet is the one that forces your body to consume fat, and maintain muscle. Low calorie diets, with insufficient protein intake, cause muscle loss, which slows your metabolism, which helps you gain weight, which makes you diet more, causing more muscle loss ... etc. You need to do cardio exercise 3 times a week. Buy a good protein powder and drink at least 2 of these a day - perhaps three. Eat small portions and have a goal of taking in 60 grams of protein a day. Eat lots of fiber (this absorbs fat). No eating (other than a protein drink) after 9pm. Don't be so concerned about the number of calories as being active and making sure you eat enough protein. You will lose weight this way, and increase your metabolism. Good luck. .

Atkins can be dangerous from eating all of that meat. What i suggest is doing weight watchers. You dont even have to join to do it. I recently started just by printing out the point chart online from google and im never ever ever hungry. 3 balanced meals and 3 snacks per day. You eat as many points as your allowed (it goes by how much you currently weigh) and you drink plenty of water. Most fruits and veggies are 0 points and if you make small changes like switching from whole milk to 2 percent or 1 percent or from switching from white bread to whole grain wheat, you will see a huge difference very quickly. Water is also key. Diet sodas are also 0 points and obviously so is water. There are hundreds and hundeds of foods out there that are on the list and you really dont have to change your life style. Its all about counting points, not calories, and portion control. I have had a great experience with it and i even have like 6 of my family members in different states doing it with me too. :)

Hi Lulu In answer to your question, at the bottom of this reply I have listed a good Internet resource that specializes in low carbohydrate diets (other than Atkins). It is a free resource. From that site, you can get free low carb dietary information, guidelines, carb counters, food lists, and other things to help you stay on track. The site also has free weight loss exercise programs. For clarification, a low carbohydrate diet does not have to be a no carbohydrate diet. You are allowed to consume an amount of good carbohydrates. As a starting point, I recommend obtaining about 15% of your calories from carbohydrates. If you get about 35% of your calories from proteins, this means getting about 50% of your calories from fats. If you want to be healthy as well as lastingly lean, test a 15/35/50 diet. Adjust it as necessary for your particular circumstance. Think of this as a suggestion for the beginning of an experiment to discover the level of low carbohydrate diet that works best for you as an individual. The key to successful low carbohydrate diets is to limit processed (refined, unnatural) carbohydrates. There are many unprocessed carbohydrates, like green leafy vegetables (rich in nutrients), that are an excellent supplement to proteins and fats. The bottom line for a good low carbohydrate diet : consume about 60 grams of carbohydrates daily. There is no reason ever to consume less than about 50 grams of carbohydrates daily, and nearly all (but preferably all) should be unprocessed. To lose body fat, get your carbohydrate intake down to that level and stay there until you are at your ideal percentage of body fat. All that requires is keeping track of your carbohydrate intake: just keep it between 48 and 72 grams daily. Once you are at your ideal percentage of body fat, raise your carbohydrate intake slightly. Still, keep it under 100 grams daily—and simply cut back if you find yourself regaining body fat. Such a diet promotes lasting weight loss rather than temporary weight loss. Instead of "burning" carbs, you will "burn" fat; you will shift from a carb-burning to a fat-burning metabolism. The best way to lose body fat is to enable your body to use that fat as fuel. I hope this information helps you, Lulu. All best wishes and good luck with your diet!
