Common Questions and Answers about How to lose weight quickly on atkins


451075 tn?1210262248 You are working out a lot, Your body needs good quality fuel in the form a balance between proteins and complex carbohydrates to work at its top efficiency. How much weight do you have to lose? It would be far better to adopt a modified plan that includes some vegetables and complex carbohydrates, in my opinion....something that you can keep up over the long run. You can make it heavier on the protein side if you are trying to build muscle.
Avatar f tn The problem with a diet of this type, where you are severely limiting any one food group is that as soon as you go off the diet, you gain the weight back again. To lose weight successfully and KEEP it off, you need to choose a healthy eating style that you will be able to maintain for the rest of your life. That includes ALL of the various food groups in appropriate portion sizes. By limiting certain foods, you most likely aren't getting all the nutrients you need.
Avatar n tn The reason I ask is that there are certain meds, like antidepressants that can cause weight gain and / or make it very hard to lose weight while on them. I know this from personal experience. magkenmare, I am going to talk to my sister as soon as I can and then post again. I know that my mother is doing the South Beach diet, but my sis, because she has diabetes cannot follow it to a "t". She mentioned something like she is doing a variation of it.
698538 tn?1228126579 do any of you know a way to lose weight quickly if you are over 40, and have that stubborn belly fat thing going on? I don't seem to lose weight by walking or exercise...doing that is going to be to get stronger and healthier...but it won't shrink my belly or my butt...sadly. =( Money is somewhat of an issue so I won't be able to join most of those Jenny Craig, LA weight loss things.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am currently on 150 Luvox and 12.5 Paxil Cr. I am trying to lose weight on a diet and exercise. I also could use a boost in the Paxil CR. I started Paxil Cr about 6 weeks ago. I heard it is horrible with weight gain. Is Paxil CR as bad with weight gain as regular Paxil? Also which SSRI's will make me gain the least amount of weight. I know each person is different, but I just mean genarally.
Avatar f tn Atkins works wonders, go to the Atkins website! I lost 15lbs in the last 3 weeks. Easiest diet ever!
Avatar f tn Choosing to make healthy choices and increasing activity are essential to your health or goals to lose weight. You need to eat breakfast suxh as hard boiled egg slice of toast and banana.... to start your metabolism and don't eat after 6pm. When you do good reward your achievements even if you don't see results yourself. Know that 1 minor pound was a sacrifice of 3500 cal!... you can do it 1 lb at a time. Stay positive stay active and put your energy in things you like to do.
Avatar f tn Ok so I have been researching for a while now on how to lose weight on methadone. I did find something that works..and works FAST. I have to warn you, it is controversial but you will find many success stories if you search the web. It's called the hcg diet and has been around since a Dr. Simeons brought it to light in the 50's. Basically, hcg is a hormone found in pregnant women and is generally used to help assist infertility issues. Dr.
Avatar n tn Yeah so I guess I am trying to lose the fat first then tone up my legs. Any suggestions for a beginner gym member on how to accomplish that? Also, is the treadmill the best cardio option for this cause I really like running on it & doing intervals of jogging & walking but I want it to be effective.
Avatar n tn So I am 2 days into my vit b12 shot and my Phen and I hope to lose the weight to get back into belly dancing. Wish me luck. My starting weight 208 at 5' 6'' Good luck to everyone and keep up the great work!
Avatar f tn YOu don't need to diet to lose weight, but you do need a diet that will help control blood sugars. Your levels of 120 - 150 are still too high. Can your doctor refer you to a nutritionist? ANyway, you need to control how much carbohydrate you eat at each meal. Following an atkins type diet (maintenance phase) / lower carb diet is the way to go. Best way to work out what you can and can't eat is to test 2 hours after eating and to see what your blood sugar levels are.
279473 tn?1222144363 Instead I developed PCOS (you may have heard that term from hanging out on the pregnancy forums), which is a fertility condition that can make it very difficult to lose weight. When I joined this forum I lost 8 lbs in one month! Then I got pregnant (SURPRISE!) so I'm not actually here to lose weight anymore but I'll definitely be back once I have baby at the end of the year because these people ARE AMAZING! I actually weighed the same as you, give or take a few lbs.
Avatar n tn Also keep in mind that the body doesn't like to lose too much weight. If you were to quit your regime, you might gain your weight back, plus more weight. By the same token, your body will want to put the brakes on when it starts losing too much. In other words, a weight loss plateau is not unusual. Yes, theoretically, changing your exercises every so often should help. I know that Bally's, for instance, offers a metabolism test.
Avatar n tn i was diagnoised 8/14/07 with T=2 because of rapid weight loss was 116 at the time. put on metformin 8/14 weight myself today lost 4 lbs. I don't need to lose weight little scary. i take 500mg 1 per day. would appreciate your thoughts. my gloucose was 120 my a1c was 6.2 random test no fasting at diagnios. excuse miss spelling.
Avatar n tn Look up what your calorie intake should be to lose 1 to 2 lbs. a week; Or you may want to figure how many calories you were eating and cut it down to no less than 1200 a day. Ask your Dr. before you start, what he thinks about your diet and execise abilities. Start slow on exercise and add to your program a little each week. It truly is very hard to lose weight when the thyroid is Hypo and not stable so don't beat yourself up over slow loss of weight.
Avatar n tn I'm just beginning to read up on this and want to begin it to lose 60 pounds! Stopped smoking 4 months ago and have put on a quick 25 pounds plus the other years of extras. I am skeptical--I'll admit to that. I am in Chicago, IL and would love the advice of anyone and everyone who will give it. I have been in contact with the GHI Medical Clinic and want to know if they are reputable or if any other clinics anyone can recommend.
Avatar n tn I continue to suffer with hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, horrible headaches, my bones ache so much, I could go on and and on. I am so depressed and now reading that there is nothing I can do to lose weight I am even more depressed. I have doctors who seem to not know what they are talking about or just don't care. I really hope that researchers take this problems seriously and other problems we suffer after having a Hysterectomy!! I empathize with all of you.
Avatar n tn Is this a symptom of perimenopause? I can't seem to find much on it. I also gained some weight. I try to eat healthy, for the most part. I don't think I have hot flashes yet, although I get up throughout the night to check the a/c or heat because I'm either too hot or too cold. That drives my husband crazy too, lol. Could any of these be signs of perimenopause? I tried to post this a couple of other places but no one seems to really know.
Avatar n tn Check out The Serotonin Power Diet which is proven by reserach studies at MIT to be effective for people on antidepressants to lose weight. The reason it's so effective is that it takes away food cravings. Eat the right carbs (yes, you must eat carbs) and your brain will make serotonin. Serotonin shuts off your appetite, reduces your cravings, and makes you feel good. Just everyday foods - no herbs, drugs, or supplements.
393685 tn?1425816122 krss60 - congrats on weight loss, I find all those diets zone, atkins too confusing to follow i tend to veer back to weight watchers, nothing to figure out but points no special prep etc... I find thinking about menus is exhausting and since i am a lifetime member i basically know how much things are so not much weighing or calculating. I wish i had less brain fog so i could figure the atkins and zone, many friends have had great success (of course they were not thyroid patients).
Avatar n tn ) Good luck to all of you, and if you have any good tips as to how to loose all the weight gained while on Effexor, please let me know! Dieting and exercising (a lot) for the last month asen't done the trick so far and i really feel hopeless and concerned !
Avatar f tn Hi All, I just wanted to fill you in on how I lost weight after gaining it from Paxil. I also suffer from IBS, so I find that I can't follow a lot of diets because my stomach just can't handle them. I used a lot of supplements that I first thought were a joke, but then noticed they got my body "working" again. I started feelin better... My list of supplements my seem a bit much and if you don't agree- that's fine, but this is what I did and my results were great.
233915 tn?1218816727 First of all, I'd like to say that the man who came up with the high protein/low carb diet, "Dr." Atkins, isn't a real doctor; he doesn't have an MD, and I think that's really important to consider. Also, like someone else already said, your brain really does need carbs; I think the problem is refined sugars and white flour.
541465 tn?1219431486 I have always had a fast metabolism and never in my life been over weight and it was impossible for me to lose the weight while i was on the methadone. However as soon as i came off the methadone the weight seemed to just fall off and at a very fast pace! I truly believe that methadone is not good used long term for opiate abuse and should be a last resort or for a short term use!
Avatar m tn If you have the discipline to adhere strictly to this type of diet and can maintain a minimal intake of carbs (not easy for me, but I could do it when I really needed to), then I think you will definitely lose weight and feel better. And of course I can't know if your metabolic clock will get reset like mine seems to have been recently after tightening down on carbs and increasing activity level, but it just might. Especially as time goes on and the effects of the IFN wane.
Avatar m tn Although I have only been on Victoza for 2 weeks, I personally did much better with the weight loss when I was on Byetta. Good luck to you and your weight loss, I know first hand how hard it can be.
Avatar n tn I've noticed lately that I am gaining weight rather quickly, and it scares me to death. Part of me wants to know if I'm carrying that gene and part of me doesn't. There's a test that can be done. It's called a CA-125 that can tell you if you have that gene or not, and my sister asked me to have it done, but I can't make myself do it. Not yet, anyway.
Avatar f tn As I read various forums it doesn’t seem like I am alone – any input on how to loose this weight and how long it might take? I have still not had my period and realize that it might take 6-12 months for my cycle to regulate. I have read some information about using the birth control bill to regulate your cycle – anyone tried this? I would greatly appreciate any help, ideas, input!
418827 tn?1313414759 I have not given in and yet I feel like I might as well because my weight will not go down. I just want to get my body back and this is so unfair. I have a daily calorie deficit of at least 1000 per day and yet nothing! What more do I need to do???
