I am currently starting Atkins, while already on Xenadrine.
I take Xenadrine for two purposes:
1) increased energy for workouts.
2) Increased weight loss.
I am doing Atkins to get fat off a little quicker (jump start myself) and also to try to help regulate some of my BAD food vices (6-10 Cokes/Pepsis a day)
Atkins (for those unfamiliar) is a LOW carb diet, but pretty much anything else goes. I average between 10 and 20 milligrams of carbohydrates daily!!!!! (YES, milligrams)
So no, breads, pasta, sugars, etc...
Now, I am wondering about doing some protein shakes in addition (but they have to be LOW carbs (like under 5mg/serving)) in order to be able to still grow muscle at a decent rate.
What shakes do you guys recommend? And if you post your brand PLEASE post the carb count or other nutrional info!!
