  1. Americans are fat not because they eat a lot but because of the meat they eat modified by modern scientist…

  2. Can I still eat things like Buckwheat, Quina, gluten free pasta, and whole grains in moderation?

  3. i've been doing low carb for 2 years now and lost 90 lbs in 1.5 yrs and kept my weight. i even lost 5lbs more in one week when i started over again to loose some 20 more lbs. my resting heart rate went down from 80-110 to a steady 60 all day. my blood sugar levels went down from 110 to 80 and when i do sports it stays at 70 for 2 days even after meals. i have a lot more energy and was able to perform a 1 hour workout with an average heartrate of 140 (min 135, max 160, never going below 135 for 60 minutes) just after four 30 minute workouts and i never did any sports before, not even when loosing the 90 lbs. and i wasn't exhausted at all. can't think of any healthier way to live and feel. just my 2 cents..

  4. I am just starting today, doing induction phase 1, i am ok with low carbs but why can't i have milk tea? i know excessive caffeine can cause low blood sugar which can make you crave sugar, but i am not really a sweet tooth kind of person, i don't even like chocolates or ice creams or sweet stuff, u get my point. So having brewed tea, with about 2tbs milk per cup, i have just max 4 cups of tea per day, would that affect my phase 1 with atkins? And what about sugar, sweeteners will do? or best not having any sugar?? confused.

  5. Just got back from my endocrinologist. Started the Atkins/Keto way of eating in April. I've lost over 30#, a1c is now 6.7, neuropathy is gone. I'm off all insulin and oral DM meds except metformin. Blood sugars are normal and stable. Blood pressure was 160's/90's, now 127/71. Cholesterol is half of when i started. I no longer need a statin. Even skin keratosis I've had for 3 years is gone after a few weeks on this. This way of living saved my life and has many others. Sugar is killing us. Try cutting out bread, pasta, milk. Go easy on the fruit. Start eating a high fat diet, moderate protein and low carbs. It really has some wonderful dishes to try. You can eat out about anywhere. This diet is recommended for children with seizures, inflammatory illnesses including arthritis, IBS, cardiac problems, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and even cancer since cancer feeds off of sugar. I am never going back to a low fat, high carb diet again. This works! And no cravings! Shame on you ADA for advocating this lie. It's hard to stand for truth when your funding comes from drug companies and sugar producers. Picked up your cookbook at the library, 43 carbs for 1 serving of one entree ! More than i can eat in a day! Shame, shame. People trust you.

  6. after the two week intro, i started going to the gym, adding a little more carbs and feel better. lost 25lbs in 7 weeks. i don't look at atkins as forever, but more a kickstart. exercise and moderation will always trump crash diets

  7. I've been on <20 carbs/day for 3 months now. The first 3 days were the hardest but I stuck it out. I've lost 40 lbs. and 10" off my waistline… it's been incredible.

  9. My husband and myself were personal patients of Dr. Atkins. My husband had malignant hypertension and was on all kinds of meds. After six weeks on the diet, we had both lost considerable weight and my husband was able to get off his meds. I was pre-diabetic before the diet but my sugar numbers plummeted on this diet. This diet works! 

  10. I really admired Dr. Atkins he was a great business man, he was able to make a fortune which he left to his widow. But he was not able to cure himself, he was obese, had cardiovascular disease and was in very poor health in general. I would not take advise from people advising on the theory of Atkins, it would be plainly stupid.

  11. It is deliciously good diet. However, I eat a lot of salads with the protein and fat. By the way, lions eat vegetables, too. When they kill their pray, they eat what half digested vegetables inside their pray's belly. Humans after all are carnivores.
