Common Questions and Answers about Atkins diet grocery list


Avatar f tn Check out the Atkins food line in the diet section they have good candy bars that I eat when I need a sweet. Also string cheese is a great snack if your hungry but can't have any carbs. I any less found some low carb options for things like bread at the grocery store so that I can eat those too. Just search the Internet for diabetic recipes as well they give you some really yummy ideas. My new favorite meal to cook myself is steak and chicken fajitas.
Avatar f tn I switched to an Atkins-like lifestyle about a year ago after being told I had be become a type 2 diabetic. I reduced my carbohydrate intake to less than 50 grams per day. I found that my overall heart rhythm improved and noticed a reduction in the number of PVC's.

4054761 tn?1349368749 So glad to find someone following the same program as ME! Can I request you as a friend? Sure hope so.
732164 tn?1237118767 I had a lap band and the diet you have to follow for that is a modified version of Atkins. It's all about low carbs, high protein, but its also low in sugar/fat. I did really well with it and am doing it again. I posted before that I don't really feel like my lapband did TOO much good, its just as much diet/exercise after as it was before. But the protein definitely fills you up more than the carbs.
Avatar m tn I'd personally avoid Atkins -- or any fad diet, actually. Atkins has more research on it than any other diet because it was developed originally to prevent heart disease (the creator, Dr. Atkins, died of heart disease!) The research showed that the diet did not work in the long run and was unhealthy in the long run, as it's too high in protein and too low in antioxidant rich foods.
1159480 tn?1263405571 m glad to see some positive talk about the Atkins/lo carb diet. I went on the Atkins diet about 6 years ago. I lost about 50 lbs. Once you get used to it, it's easy. And, I kept the weight off for the 6 years. I only gained back a few pounds when I started eating carbs again. You really get used to not eating alot of bread and sweets and it does not bother you after awhile. Unfortunately, what killed me was menopause. I gave in to the cravings for sweets and gained more weight back.
Avatar n tn DO NOT go on a high protein low carb diet . Atkins is horrible! It causes your bad cholesterol to go way up. And you will only Lose water weight. You will also stave your body of glucose. Your average daily protein intake should be 15 to 20 percent of your total daily calories. According to the U.S. Food and Nutrition Board, the preferred form of protein is from non animal sources: beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds. They are also naturally lower in fat too.
Avatar f tn The part that I struggle with, though, is the grocery list. I go to the store and feel so overwhelmed by choices and if there is even a smidge of corn syrup or MSG in something I put it back. We end up with bare cabinets or unhealthy choices. And of course budget is a major part of this, too. SHARE YOUR SHOPPING LIST! I'd love to see them and compare. And if you want to include what's on the menu with your list, please do! Secrets, tips... whatever. I'm eager to eat them all up.
1054985 tn?1257173275 I have been on atkins for 3 years, diagnosed with MS 6 months ago. Anyone try the diet? I feel great with enough energy to drag myself to the gym on a regular basis. Wondering if anyone has had succsess.
764257 tn?1234724152 I agree with the above. Talk to your doctor about whether you should try Atkins or not. I was on Atkins for approximately 5 months (something happened and I completely stopped eating, but it isn't related to the diet). The results were fantastic. By the end of the second week I (a carb lover) didn't want to eat carbs although I was still eating fruits and veggies. I lost weight and I felt good.
1464587 tn?1307491605 or none if you can, good proteins and high fiber. A couple people refered to it like the atkins diet, since atkins seems to I think concentrate on meats (proteins), low fats, and little to no carbs. And thank you soooo much jackie on that chocolate refernce!! I will so look for it the next time I'm at the store =D And the meat I have is very little, just once a day, and half the portion of my veggies =) and it is very lean.... maybe 2 grams of fat per night. And as far as the egg whites..
Avatar m tn People keep telling me that the Atkins diet is unhealthy, but my labs tell me differently. I lose weight on this diet and for the 1st time in 20 year my triglycerides are below 200. Also my cholesterol has come back into the good range. I feel better and have more energy, so why is this diet a bad thing? Maybe I don't see the big picture, please let me know.

Avatar f tn It would help if I had a list of foods to go grocery shopping for, and what I could or couldn't eat.
7110266 tn?1392136011 I hate going to the grocery store while pregnant, everything looks so flipping good and I can't just stick to what is on my list. I spend way to much money on nothing. I need a personal shopper!
Avatar m tn Harvard researchers put pre-obese people (they had just lost 10-15 percent of their body weight) on three different diets—a low-fat, high-carb diet; a low-glycemic diet with fewer carbs; and a high-protein, high-fat, Atkins-style diet. Each participant ate the same number of calories on each diet, yet at the end of the study, they found that people burned the most calories at rest while on the Atkins diet.
Avatar m tn i've had a continual sinus infection for about 2 years.....i've always had sinus infectioons more than others growing i'm 33.......i went on the atkins diet to see if me getting sick all of the time is from an allergy to like wheat, gluten , or milk....i was on the atkins for 2 days.....that is the worst thing for people....i feel bad for them....anyways...that diet made me feel like i'm starving....i have steroids (prednisone) that i started last night......
Avatar m tn s not advisable for you to put your mother on the Atkins-type diet. It would be safer for your mom to see her family doctor and have her doctor suggest a food plan for your mom. The back pain may be because she is overweight. If your mom loses some weight through a food plan which she has discussed with her family doctor, her back problems will probably improve. Not every person is a candidate for the Atkins diet. It's nice of you to try and solve her food plan.
Avatar f tn I like the paleo diet. My weight loss had stalled for a long time, and now I'm losing again on the paleo diet. There's a lot of information out there about the paleo diet, nowadays. A book called The Paleo Approach is a good introduction. I also like the PaleoMom website, and she also has a book that has just come out. Nom Nom Paleo is another good source. In effect, the paleo diet is a low-carb diet, because you don't eat any grains.
Avatar f tn Be patient and the weight will drop as the body is going through a necessary adjustment during this plateau period. I also lost a lot of weight on the Atkins diet. I started 9 years ago (my 2nd try with it)... went off last year (big mistake!) because the man that I was dating during that time didn't like watching me diet. So, I had gained some "dating" weight... but, fortunately, not a whole lot. I'm not dating that man anymore; so I'm now back on track with the diet.
