How much fat are you allowed on atkins diet
It's a horrible diet. Do more research on eating habits that will help you achieve your desired goal.
Plus, Dr. Atkins died of a heart attack (or so I've heard) How good can his diet be?
Being a strong teenager means nothing.
My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.
Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.
the only 'diets' that work are lifestyle changes.
you ate poorly for how many years to get in bad shape? how could you expect to go on a 6 week diet to fix years of bad eating and (probably) inactivity.
so you don't 'go on a diet'....you just 'change your diet'...namely food choices and portion control, to fuel the body properly.
if you are more than 10lbs over weight (fat weight), a 6-8 diet isn't gonna help you much. you need to change gears for the long term. and fAtkins isn't the answer.
All these fancy diets are designed for one thing - to make money. If you think differently, you're sadly mistaken.
The Atkins Diet is a lifestyle change... if you'd actually read anything he's written you might know that... If you follow the book you will lose body fat, hands down... everyone I know, including myself, that followed it lost weight... my friend lost 80 lbs on it in about 6 months
Any diet is a lifestyle change. I don't need to read anything to know that. Of course you lose weight. Your carbs are non-existant. For anyone that's a weightlifter, you NEED lots of carbs. Atkins makes your body eat itself. It indiscriminately eats muscle and fat for energy. Cutting anything except bad foods out is just stupid. Carbs are a necessity for the body and mind to function properly.
