As the subject title suggests I'm interested in losing weight while at college. As I've stated in my introduction thread New To WBBF.com , I'm a college Junior.
When I was in high school I played three varsity sports and was in very good shape. Unfortunately, I put on the Freshman 15 and haven't looked back. I was very embarassed when I returned home for Thanksgiving break and found that I currently weight 208lbs.
In browsing the internet, I found eDiets and after plugging in some information and the Atkins diet was suggested to me. The plan has my current weight (208lbs) and BMI (32) as well as goals in weight (143lbs) and BMI (18.5 - 25).
As a typical college student I don't have $40 a week to spend on a diet program so I google'd the Atkins diet and researched it online. Without rambling anymore, I'd like to know if this is a proper diet for me?
I'm not interested in becoming a body builder but I am interested in losing 40 lbs of fat over a healthy time period and adding some muscle. As interested as I am in looking good, being healthy is most important to me. I want to spend time in the gym and eat the right foods to get in better shape. Can anyone give me some suggestions for my diet?
Thanks in advance,
