Losing weight quickly on atkins diet

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight quickly on atkins diet


4054761 tn?1349368749 Diets like Atkins are not healthy, and typically result in all of the weight (and then some) being gained back when the diet is discontinued. It is not a change that can be maintained for life. For permanent, healthy weight loss, you'll need to make modifications that are sustainable. This means portion control, the eat less + sweat more equation, and not depriving yourself of things severely, which invariably leads to binges and nutritional imbalances.
Avatar f tn Apparently, that type of diet is not agreeable with you. Losing 9 lbs in 9 days very unhealthy. You should try to make changes that you can live with, because fad diets don't last. They aren't meant to be long term and when you go off it and start eating normally again, you'll gain back all the weight.
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.

Avatar f tn While Atkins may help you lose weight fast, it's not something that most people can stay on long term. An overall healthy diet that centers on veggies, lean protein, low/no fat dairy and eliminates sugar and processed foods, including sugar, white bread, pasta etc is something you can maintain. It's not fast, but fast isn't healthy and will only result in further gain down the road.
Avatar m tn Is there any prescription I can ask for to go on for a short amount of time (less than six weeks) to get started losing weight? I lost 28 lbs on the Atkins diet but I have regained 15 because I didn't follow the program right, then quit it all together and started eating anything I want. I have never had a weight problem my whole life till now and I am 56 and female. If I could have a little help from a med for a short amount of time to get started I think it would help me.
Avatar m tn My question to you is are you just dieting or are you exercising as well? I hate the word "diets"...lol. They make me cringe because when I hear diet I head "temporarily loose weight" then put it back on when you stop eating how you'd suppose to.

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.
484844 tn?1253968693 I have friends who have done the South Beach diet who were very successful at losing weight and did keep it off. Good luck!
1666434 tn?1325262350 t know if anyone else is the opposite, but I actually gain weight when I eat too much protein. I remember trying that Atkins diet and I felt horrible while my mother-in-law loses weight quickly with it. So its always interesting the different approaches we can take to dieting and how different things work for different people.
768251 tn?1256734583 ll probably gain the weight back. What you need is a permanent change in your diet, cutting back on the simple sugars such as white flour and sweets and such and the bad fats such as fatty cuts of beef, and increasing calorie burning. That's the only long-term method of losing weight.
451075 tn?1210258648 Hello, I am 23 year old Male, medium built, in overall good shape, healthy, not taking any medications. However, my goal is still to get very toned. I work out a lot and feel good. I seem never be able to get rid of the extra layer of fat that is covering my lower torso and ABS. I decided to take a new approach - Atkin's diet. i want to get my 8 pack showing and have no fat on my hips and stomach. In the morning I eat: 1 Cup of Oat Bran and 1 egg, 1 egg white with 2 glasses of water.
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 f tn I lost alot of weight rather quickly with the Atkins diet and I kept the weight off for YEARS. I really felt good for a long time--about 6 years at least. Then, along came the unavoidable menopausal weight gain. And, boy, does that put the pounds on FAST. On top of that, I now have my mother living with me again--she is almost blind, has colon cancer and, I believe, bipolar (there's no convincing her of that).
1593682 tn?1297701082 First of all Dr. Atkins did not die of a heart attack. He slipped and fell and died of "blunt impact injury of head with epidural hematoma". As far as the diet itself is concerned, it's safe if you do it correctly. I've been on it for one month and not only am I losing weight I'm burning fat. The same components that scientist were applauding in the French Paradox system is basiclly the same. Fat is not the enemy.
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.
Avatar f tn Atkins works wonders, go to the Atkins website! I lost 15lbs in the last 3 weeks. Easiest diet ever!
2046312 tn?1360379600 since I got sober I have had 3 miscarriages, was diagnosed with hep c which I have been treated for and am currently undetected, but I put on a lot of weight. I am very unhappy and depressed with how I look now, going from a size 5 to a size 14 and every diet I try never works. Does anyone have any programs that have worked for them? I am currently starting to do atkins but it is so hard.
Avatar n tn Exercise is always good for overall fitness and helps in losing weight, but your food intake with an eye on total calories is important in weight control.
Avatar f tn I think prenatal vitamins are the best multivitamin you can get even if you arr not ttc. But they do lack calcium in them so I take one on the side. What kind of diet are you doing. Make sure it is balanced. I always avoid the no card, no meat... Whatever fad diet there is. Straight calorie intake is what I always did and dropped weight quickly. Some blood types arent good with these Atkins, no redmeat whatever diets. Which is why you hear the reports of people dying from them.
Avatar n tn This is my concern as well. At 204 lbs + cholesterol of 347, I have lost 6-7 lbs in my first four days. What will happen when I finish the injections, I wonder. I can say that Stevia is a wonderful replacement for Splenda. I plan to do meat and veggies M-F, in anticipation that carbs are not my friend--which of course I crave. If I feel deprived I will regain any weight I have lost.
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.
942939 tn?1245426724 The usual cardio exercise routine, some weight lifting, a little calorie deficit, drinking lots of water and making that a lifestyle and switching the type of carbs you eat should guarantee a result of some sort. I don't recommend any kind of diet plan like Atkins as you will put the weight back on again once you finish the diet. It's a waste of time.
Avatar m tn I currently eat between 1800-2000 calories per day, tracked) and going on a very strict Atkins diet for a few weeks to induce ketosis. During their tests, however, they discovered I had a right bundle branch block (heart disease), so I didn't go through with it, mostly because the meds mess around with your heart. Well, turns out my RBBB is a "normal variant" and nothing to concern myself over.
Avatar f tn m on a very low dose and am freaking out about the weight issue because I have already have a weight problem. Has anyone on this med done the Atkins diet with success or at least not so much weight gain?
