Losing weight slowly on atkins

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight slowly on atkins


Avatar m tn I can also feel nodule underneath the skin (not sure if in fat of facia) and if these are pressed, the pain is tremendous, often radiating all over. I also have difficulty losing weight - I know every obese person says this, and I don't say I can't lose weight at all, but I do it much more slowly than others, whether the diet is Weight Watchers assorted type of Atkins low carb and no matter how much I exercise. Is it normal for fatty tissue to be painful?
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 I want to find a lifestyle that I can do for the rest of my life. I am 19 pounds away from my goal weight after losing almost 80 pounds. I like Atkins I have come to enjoy calorie counting is well with no simple carbs.
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 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.
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 f tn // Pay careful attention to your breath, your body odor, or urine if any starts to have a fruity sweet smell. This is the beginning of ketosis caused by the body switching from burning carbohydrates to only fat. It is telling you that your carb intake is way too low. Ketosis can be hard on your kidneys so don't eliminate carbs altogether.
Avatar f tn I am now combining these tow foods so he can adjust slowly to losing weight. He seems to be very hungry so I don't know which he needs more of the thyroid of the phenobarb. I would like to know do you think I should go on and get his levels check now or waite till I get some weight off of him?
4054761 tn?1349368749 I am. This is my 2nd full week on Adkins and I'm down almost 5 lbs! I'm still new at it but it's going well and hasn't been that difficult to maintain this as a "diet".
Avatar f tn t believe in the concepts of yin and yang, balance is generally accepted as best, and going too far in one direction can lead to cravings in the opposite direction. Just lose the weight slowly on a permanently altered diet that works for you, and if it doesn't taste good, it isn't working for you. Cookbooks can help with this.
Avatar n tn There are certain programs that I think are healthier approaches to losing weight such as Weight Watchers and The South Beach program.
558632 tn?1303471125 From what I can gather, you are taking anti-thyroid drugs? Have you had your levels checked lately? Back when I was taking tapazole, it worked a lot faster that anyone thought it might. Fixed my hyperthyroidism WAY before my appetite matched my metabolism. Almost instantly put on 20 lbs. I had to reschedule my first followup appointment for a couple of weeks later, and my doctor was a little upset that I had gone so far hypo.

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.
Avatar f tn I've been waiting for your post, Teko. Big congrats! Now did this year fly by or what? Congrats on the weight loss, as well!!
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 its been slow going, but when i look at my size now, it has been worth the hard work. it took a long time to put the weight on, and it wont melt off over night. please dont give up. you will lose weight.
527657 tn?1214051850 NOTHING has taken off my weight. I have joined Weight Watchers and tried Slim Fast, and the Atkins diet. All to no avail. I have dropped to eating only 1300 calories a day and still the weight stays the same on the scale. I feel like a fat blob and it's all because of Paxil. Unfortunately, the side of effects of going off Paxil are worse than the weight gain. I was weaned off by my psychiatrist four years ago and ended up in the hospital for a month. I immediately went back on it.
Avatar m tn The other advice I give to people about Atkins is not to stay on the Induction phase longer than 2 weeks at a time, depending on their health. If they strictly follow the plan (which is very healthy!), they will still lose weight. I am just not a "follow a plan" kind of person and I know this, so I had to vow off of all plans. I actually lost weight by increasing protein, fiber, dairy and decreasing bad carbs. Sound familiar? OH !!! AND I GREATLY INCREASED MY ACTIVITY LEVEL !!!
1519805 tn?1291058650 As you mature, it will be more and more difficult to lose weight. However, large amounts of weight gain--with no change in diet or activity--usually hints at a medical condition. So make sure you rule those out first. First of all, there's nothing easy or quick about losing weight. I'm so frustrated with commercials and billboards that promise fast results. A fat camp means you'll lose weight while at camp, but then what happens when you get home?
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 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.
732164 tn?1237118767 We have a pool at work with a $500 winners pot for whomever loses the most percentage of weight in 3 months. I really want to hit the ground running,so to speak, so I have groceries and threw away all the other ****. If any one has suggestions . . .I am open!
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.
9455625 tn?1412820762 No losing weight is actually normal if not in excessive amounts
Avatar m tn I've done the Atkins with amazing results. However, when I do the Atkins, something about it makes my blood pressure a little higher and my heart rate easier to raise. Running up the stairs isn't such a big deal normally, but on Atkins I feel like my heart is trying to jump out of my chest. I can easily lose 40 pounds in a few months on the Atkins, and while I generally feel better (look better/breathe easier), my symptoms feel a little worse.
Avatar n tn I exercise everyday, I'm 15 and trying to lose weight. I recently heard of the Atkins diet,This is a low carb diet, you eat alot of meats and veggies but no fruits for the first 2 weeks, I was wondering if I lose my desired weight but increase my carbs (good carbs such as apples and fruits, and oats) will I gain it all back if I keep exercising, plus I'm a teen so I heard we have a fast matabilism..
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!
