Losing 50 Pounds on the Atkins Diet

Kristine, age 21, is elated that she's lost about 50 pounds. Two years ago she weighed 174 pounds and was wearing black clothes everyday to look thinner. Her mood was bad and she often felt fatigued.

That's when she decided to try the low-carb Atkins diet. The Atkins diet doesn't ask you to count calories or watch your portions. It does severely restrict your carbohydrate intake. She was able to eat all the protein she wanted and never felt hungry.

The pounds started dropping off and when the weight loss started to plateau, she also added exercise. Now, two years later she weighs 125 pounds and in the best shape of her life. She feels very joyful to be so healthy now. See her page on Atkins weight loss here.

I'm interested in this kind of stories! In particular for what I've read, the Atkins diet is quite controversial. As much as I've heard from people losing an amazing amount of weight and never gaining it back I've also heard from a lot of people that either wouldn't drop any weight or if they would, they would gain it all back at the end of the diet.

Actually a few weeks ago when my girlfriend and I were thinking of a diet to start with, Atkins called our attention as it was the one that would allow us to keep eating pretty much the way we were eating but all the negative comments took us to start on something similar to the eat-clean diet. So far it's working quite well though I still feel intrigued about Atkins.

Anyways good for her! Please feel free to pass by my blog on weight loss and check it out it's here!

Hmm... I've read quite a lot about this diet and it seems pretty good even if it's a bit controversial.
But I will not try it, because I want to lose some of my extra pounds in other way and after reading, searching, I found a weight loss treatment in Toronto. I think that I will have my desired results, because I'm working with a very specialized person, who knows what he is doing.

The tough part about gaining weight is it not only affects you physically it affects you mentally and emotionally. Society can be cruel when it comes to this scenerio. I personally have several friends who are currently overweight. I can personally say I love them despite societies views and opinions. A site i go to view reviews of weight loss is http://harrisreviews.com. I remember when I was 30lbs overweight and the way I was treated. Not cool.

Every dieter wants to kick start a weight loss program, reach a goal and never have to diet again. And as far as we’re concerned, the Atkins program is the most natural, easiest, tastiest, most
long-term way to achieve these very
normal goals.
So take a few minutes to
understand – and put away other
diets forever.

All diet advisors recommend to take as many fruit and veggie as you can. They contain all organic vitamins, anti-oxidants and materials which your human demands. Consuming a lot of veggies is the most organic and simple way to get rid of some fat and to create your way of life better.

I just found your blog and there have been many times in my life where I have feel right where you are right now. It’s usually around the time I fall off any type of plan. If this is important to you push through it. Your body is craving the sugar, but at the same time your body is waking up to the all the healthy things you are now putting inside of it. A book, not really a diet that is helping me is Kris Carr's "Crazy Sexy Diet". It really put things into perspective for me and helped me understand my food choices. She talks vegan for healing and health, but at the same time promotes working with your own body and making small choices as you begin to feel better.

Salads day in and day out are not a healthy diet choice. Good nutrition is important, Lots of water, and mild exercise. You might consider juicing to get "wake up your body" and give it the oxygen it needs to get rid of all the toxins in your body. It will change your mood, your energy, and your health. Good Luck!
