|Atkins Diet or Low Carbohydrate Diet
If you don't like meat, cheese, or eggs this is
not the diet for you. This diet does work, however like any fad diet, you
won't last long on it. This diet is basically the opposite of everything
you've ever had about losing weight. You can eat as much fat as you want -
steaks, chicken or cheese. Anything that is in the meat section is fine
and you can eat unlimited quantities of it. You cannot eat anything with
carbohydrates in it like candy, bread, soda (except diet soda, which does not
have sugar), pasta, fruits, ice cream, or anything else with sugar or starch in
it. This is an extremely limited diet, if you cheat the diet won't work.
If you have a heart condition, no not even consider this diet since it is
extremely rich in fat and protein which will only worsen your condition.
On the Atkins diet your meals will pretty much
be the same everyday. Most of us love meat, but we don't eat it for all
three meals, seven days of the week. This diet is probably most effective
for the first two weeks. After that you will probably quit because you get
so sick of eating meat. Though supporters of this diet have a point when
they claim that this diet will help you lose weight quickly (http://www.bantingdietmenu.com/atkins-diet/) in the initial
phase. After that you will lose weight slowly between 1-2 pounds a week.
Many people claim that this diet has stopped
their sugar cravings. If you find that you constantly crave sweet foods
this diet will be difficult for the first few days, but after that your blood
sugar will stabilize and you won't crave sugar the way you use to.
If you are planning to start the Atkins Diet,
you should be aware that eating out will be especially difficult. You
should plan ahead of any place that you will be dining at. You should also
throw away any food unrelated(vivaxa pill)to this diet in your home. The initial
cravings are supposedly difficult but will pass shortly. This is a fairly
easy diet to follow, start with eggs and bacon in the morning, Cesar salad for
lunch (no croutons), fish or chicken for dinner. You will also have to
give up alcohol on this diet, since alcohol has sugar in it. Drink plenty
of water or diet soda instead.
