Questions About Atkins Diet

Monday, February 04, 2013

Hello to my Sparkpeeps :)
I know that I have not posted for a while (again) , but it has been pretty hectic on my end just like any other time I disappear. I have been bad, have not worked out in weeks and I came to the conclusion that I need more daily motivation to keep up with my workout and I definitely need a solid diet plan. Lately, I have been hearing a lot about the Atkins Diet. I see results with other people so I am thinking about starting this diet. I believe it is going to be better to have a sort of a diet plan rather than no diet plan.
What are my Sparkpeeps thinking about this, that is the question I have for today!

P.S. Here is a newly created/listed bookmark :)

    Sorry for my very late response, I tried the Atkins Diet , 3 weeks (did not cheat or anything but life got in the way for not being able to make special meals and etc) - I lost about 6 -8 lbs and some inches however - after quitting it for couple of weeks gained 6 + lbs and inches - it did not work for me :(
    I am glad it worked for you :)

    Good luck! I am following Atkins. For me it's not a "diet" its a lifestyle change. I have PCOS which makes me insulin resistant. In order for me to lose weight my dietitian put me on a low-carb diet, much like the diabetic diet. I decided to experiment and cut even more carbs. I don't eat bad, junky, dense nutrition carbs , sugar, wheat, things like that. I have been doing in since Jan 1 and I have never felt better. I have been battling the same 10lbs for 2 years. I finally dropped those 10 and I haven't gone back. I have been looking at Primal and Paleo to help me even more. One step at a time but I am convinced that low-carb is the way to go for me. emoticon
