Hi and to the team. Please note that this team is not following the Atkins diet. We follow the BFFM (Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle) program by Tom Venuto, however, that is not to say that other programs can't be manipulated to follow the carb cycling principles.
However, before I comment any further, you should have an understanding of what carb cycling is and isn't. To best do this, please read the following introductory thread to the carb cycling program, "BFFM On Carb Cycling":
New to this team. I just bought The New Atkins For A New You book. I am confused by all the how much protien, fats, carbs is a good rule to follow. I have read several diet books Tosca Reno Eat Clean, Jillian Michaels Master Your Metabolism, South Beach, SKinny Bitches ( I could never do the Vegan diet). Anyway what is a healthy number for daily carbs. I was keeping a food journal with an app on my ipod touch Loseit. Anyway I had been noticing that my carbs were on the high side. About two weeks ago I decided to cut down on the carbs. For the most party I am a clean eater. Do not eat much processed foods. Just want to feel better and have more energy. The last two weeks I have felt great but have not been able to get below 100 carbs except for one day. I excercise everyday and need to have energy. When I was looking at the Atkins team some people were eating barely anything and staying under 15 carbs a day. That was like the Phase 1 of the diet. When I went on Atkins site and did my profile it said i should start at Phase 3/lifetime maintenance since I only have about 10lbs I want to lose. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
