Common Questions and Answers about Atkins diet water pills


451075 tn?1210262248 I have been reading a lot about dangers of Atkin's diet, but they seem to be centered around people abusing the diet and eating high fatty, high cholesterol foods. Is my approach ok? I would only like to do this for about 12 weeks, will I be ok? THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE.
Avatar n tn I drank alot of water, I live in Texas and it is really hot here so I am use to drinking lots of water. I worked out hard. It took my mind off the diet. What really impressed me about his protocol is the way my body was being reshaped. My waist got very small, mu stomach very flat. I have nicely defined arms and legs. It is really exciting to weigh yourself every morning and see weight loss success. It is so motivating. I highly recommend working out while on this protocol.
251922 tn?1193786078 i think as with any diet the more you have to lose the faster it seems to come off. mostly water in the first few days really. believe it or not the vlcd isn't that hard because we just aren't that hungry. a warning though......eating is as much a social habit (as addictive as smoking i think in some cases) as much as it is a functional need. those of us who liked to eat and enjoyed entertaining with friends/famile etc really missed the act of eating more than we missed the actual food.
Avatar n tn If you are extremly obese, you can take help of diet pill phentermine,xenical(FDA approved prescription diet pills) etc. with proper execrcise. But before using diet pill you take proper precaution: Diet pills do help to control obesity and shed off the extra pounds which you are uncomfortable with.
Avatar f tn The 500 calorie diet is incredibly boring: Breakfast: 3 ounces of water with 3 T lemon juice every morning as soon as you get up. 2 hard boiled egg whites only 2 pieces of melba toast 16 ounces of water.
Avatar n tn are there some months you may have little bloating and then the next period or two you are like a baloon?
Avatar n tn I am a 43 yr old over weight male, with a family history of Heart Disease, both parents died from Heart Attacks 1 Grandparent and 4 uncle's ( whom were all under 45 ) I have been on the Atkins diet for 5 weeks and lost 51 pounds the second week in I got them back again and thought it was the Vitamin I was taking so I stopped it. They went away for 3 weeks. Now today they are back, I have been to my doctor 3 times today because of them.
Avatar n tn Also all the other pills you have to take along with the shot in order for it to be successful. (Water pills, Potassium pills, Phenermin and Appetite Supressants) Just was wondering. I'm still trying to make a decision on what I want to do about being overweight. I know that I'm ready to stop being this way. Getting around is getting very hard to do. So any advice could really help me. Thank You!
Avatar n tn I am going on vacation in 3 weeks and need to lose a couple of pounds quick and I do not want to take diet pills!! CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME TIPS?
Avatar n tn Atkins diet. Google the info, it really works. I lost 50 lbs in approx. 4-5 months. No bread, rice, pasta, fruit, or any carbs. Don't excede 30 carbs in one day.
Avatar n tn The preservatives have antibacterial properties and will kill good bacteria in your stomach 3. Stopped carbs and sugars. Went on Atkins diet, but ate more fresh veggies. No fruits, however. This will starve out the fungus/yeast 4. Took probiotic pills - Azo Yeast and Culturelle - 1 of each type daily 5. Tool garlic extract pills and tried to eat fresh garlic clove whenever possible 6. had 1 tablespoon of coconut oil daily, as a salad dressing (does not taste great) 7.
Avatar f tn What about atkins diet My sister is diabetic after she used the atkin her glucose (bloodsugar ) level became from 300 and above to 90.
Avatar n tn It is almost the same plan except that you are doing a version of the atkins diet. She lost 40 pounds in 7 weeks with that diet. Wow! it is a small world! Let me know how you do on it. It took about 3 weeks before I started dropping weight like crazy. Watch for constipation tho. That can keep you from feeling like you are not losing. My doctor told me to get "Senacot-plus" to help with constipation. It works. Vegetable laxative with a stool softener.
Avatar f tn I lost 30 pounds last year in 8 weeks for my wedding. The healthy way! No diet pills, no crazy work-out routines. It was very simple actually...lots of protein and veggies, fruits, gallons of water, 30-45 minutes of exercising 3-4 times per week, and making sure to eat something small 5-6 times per day. This is the key to losing weight and losing it fast.
Avatar f tn I cut out sodas even diet which was hard and drink more water. We even have a water cooler in the kitchen. I was in Limbo for two years and have been diagnosed for over six months. It is probably coincidence but I only go to the Neurologist for routine visits. I have never been on steroids. All my blood work is perfect even high vitamin D. My Neurologist does suggest taking Vitamin D to all his patients. I tried acupuncture and massage neither worked for me but they do for others.
Avatar n tn If you have unexplained aches, pains, headaches, joint weakness, rashes, abdominal swelling, upset stomach, blurred vision, dizziness, etc, examine your diet carefully. If you've made changes to it recently, or begun a sugar free diet, please read the ingredients in everything carefully. Know that even medications and supplements are using sucralose. And complain to the FDA. They were swayed by the lobbyists for the big manufacturer Johnson and Johnson.
964096 tn?1299510936 So I have been taking water pills and sometimes laxatives or fiber ready. I even did the colon cleaner twice one was for 90 days and one was for 60 and still nothing is helping me lose weight. My legs are great it is all in the stomach area. I am 43 and at 143 pounds and should be at least 112 according to my nutrition class I took.
Avatar n tn I was on the Atkins diet before I got pregnant with my 7 month old daughter and I lost 56 pounds in 7 1/2 months. Everytime I would lose 1-3 pounds (like the day before) I would get a headache. I know it may sound strange to some, but the headaches would be worse the more I lost...lose one pound-a small headache, lose three pounds-an even worse headache. They were never really unbearable or anything that tylenol couldn't take care of.
921323 tn?1268679412 Interestingly, these studies suggest that there’s not a significant improvement in fitness or muscle strength, leading some people to believe that HGH just results in more water being stored in muscles. But this hasn’t stopped some athletes from using it, despite the absence of good data to suggest that it significantly improves performance. So why don’t I recommend it? First of all, it’s poorly regulated.
907968 tn?1292625804 I'm not so sure. If we look at the Atkins diet it's the same thing. Low carbs/high protein/low sugar intake. It makes your HDL raise, LDL lower but some Doctors are saying it can cause a whole lot of other problems. Although it can be very beneficial to heart disease, lack of certain substances can lead to death, such as a 16 year old girl who died on the diet from severe lack of potassium.
Avatar f tn I have tried many diets, but the only one that works for me is a high protein, VERY LOW carbohydrate ZERO SUGAR diet. (Atkins induction menu for one whole month instead of the suggested two weeks) I did this recently for one whole month (SHEER TORTURE...LOL) was very strict about it when I did it, and I kept the carbs below 15 grams a day. MEAT, EGGS, CHEESE AND LETTUCE ONLY!!! "YES" TO MAYO and ranch dressing, NO TO KETCHUP (it contains sugar) also...NOTHING WHITE...
Avatar n tn The doctor I go to doesn't give water pills. Still not too sure about Adipex and how it is making me feel. Only curbs the hunger slightly. I am a 23 yr old female with two small is hard to find a way or place to exercise. I bought a DDR (dancepad) for my playstation as a means for exercise - but me and my son, who is about to turn 3, just ended up fighting over it :-) As far as diet goes, I am just watching what I eat.
Avatar n tn hi! welcome aboard! Just wanted to say good luck and I'm glad you are taking steps toward better health and a new life. I do the same shot and I also take bontril appetite suppressant pills daily; you didn't mention if you do that. If you do , that is probably what gave you the jittery feeling b/c it is a stimulant. You get used to it after a few days. I do take a water pill too and it really helped my ankles and legs.
Avatar n tn but good carbs is what we need to study. I tried diet pills.... do not use them in general! If they make you nausaus or a lot of boul movements get off them. But I found one that I am having major success with and it's mostly herbs. It's slimquick and you have to use a diet that works and exercise regiment! Have her look into the regimen part. I tried exercising like her. two hours aday and nothing. I even put on more weight that way.
Avatar f tn Carbs raise blood sugars, simple carbs faster and higher than complex carbs so you want look and follow a low carb diet like Atkins. Use Google to understand the difference between simple and complex carbs. Pay attention to all nutrition labels and read them carefully. Carb sugars are listed in grams under carbohydrates. Every 7 grams equals one heaping tablespoon of table sugar. Use Google to learn about 'hidden sugars in foods'.

545538 tn?1295995617 I start SOC on Thursday and saw in a thread today that fiber may inhibit the absorbsion of riba. I'm on the Atkins style diet and eat alot of fiber. Does the fiber matter when the pills are taken or at all times? Anything else I should know about riba?
