This diet works for me

It's a true loss that Dr Atkins died. I lived on a low-fat, high-carb diet for 10 years & every one of those years were miserable. I gave Atkins diet a try because there was nothing left to try but this. I am a big carb craver, so eliminating them out of my lifestyle is...
It's a true loss that Dr Atkins died. I lived on a low-fat, high-carb diet for 10 years & every one of those years were miserable. I gave Atkins diet a try because there was nothing left to try but this. I am a big carb craver, so eliminating them out of my lifestyle is not always easy or enjoyable, but after getting into ketosis the motivation to keep the increased energy & fat loss results keeps me going. It just takes more planning & discipline to eat this way than the usual haphazard junk food diet that got me depleted & sick in the first place. Not eating enough protein & good fats is a big no-no. I have done this diet before & it has made me healthier than I ever was in my life. My bodyfat percentage with diligent adherence to the diet & regular exercise dropped from 26% to 17% in 8 months. But after 5 years I got lazy & started eating a lot of sweets & carbs for 3-4 yrs & now I'm back at square one. My bodyfat percentage skyrocketed to 31%. Very unhealthy. Atkins is the only solution that I know works for me, & the best things I love about this diet/lifestyle are the energy it provides & the fact that I never have to feel hungry ever.

Horrible ebook!

I got this for a digital copy, as I already have the paperback, and it is awful. There are words incorrectly spelled, and it is NOT the actual book. Very upset.

    Why my initial weight loss success vanished

    I lost 35 pounds on this diet two years ago, the problem was I couldn't keep it off because I never learned a darn thing from the book except cut out the carbs and eat meats. If you can do that forever than Atkins is for you. If you can't, do yourself a favor and learn as I did by reading another book written by a Registered Dietitian 'Formerly Fat, Forever Fijian Lean' I have lost a total of 40 pounds over the last three months and I have a better diet, more energy 'I even run now'and a better sex life! My MD say's my glucose and A1C are perfect and finally I am off Lopid.Funny thing is when I was in the hospital for my diabetes the dietitan that 'educated' me was fat herself so I don't put alot of faith in RD's but this guy has different ideas and is in shape. He even recommends alcohol as a fat loss aid. My MD said as long as the weight comes off and the labs look good and I don't drink to excess it's fine.

    Check it out

    This book on the Atkins' Diet is a book that should be read slowly. It is a diet that goes against what we have been taught. Good read and makes your mind think about the diet. Always check with your Doctor when starting a new diet.

    People With Failing Kidneys Take Note

    The 'Atkins' (low-carb & high protein) diet has proven successful in helping people shed pounds, in many instances - at least on a short-term basis. In this, and other Atkins diet publications, the author strongly cautions that this weight-loss protocol is NOT meant to be used by those with significant kidney failure. Unfortunately, with an estimated 20 million Americans (2003 database) currently experiencing some form of chronic kidney disease (CKD), and record numbers of people (>90,000 in 2001) told, each year, that they have End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) and must begin dialysis to stay alive, the likelihood that someone, who shouldn¿t be following the Atkins `plan¿, is, is overwhelmingly high. From the kidney¿s perspective, the problem with an Atkins diet is multi-fold ¿ a high meat diet = (a) excess protein stress, (b) mineral overload (especially phosphorus and potassium), and (c) excess creatine (a Bio-fuel) which will be converted to creatinine (Bio-waste). Excess protein will always be problematic, but there is an effective way to deal with excess phosphorus, potassium, and creatine/creatinine encountered by following this diet. The proven procedures for mineral removal (Demineralization) can be found in ¿Healthy Living With Demineralization¿ and ¿More Bio-fuel ¿ Less Bio-waste¿.
