Bottom Line
People complain the diet pushes too much red meat and cheese. Although Atkins was a big deal back in the day, itís just not in the same league with todayís top diets like Nutrisystem or Medifast Diet.

I tried "eating healthy" and only lost 2 pounds in the first month, which is why I decided to go on a real diet. I chose Atkins because it wasn't that far off from my eating schedule for my diabetes. I think the key to Atkins is knowledge. ..make lifestyle changes and good preparations so that you will succeed. Keep a journal. Write down your carbs. Drink your water. Don't just think you know what it is all about. It's not about just meat. Read the labels on everything and determine what you can have. On the induction part you can have 20 carbs. 4 carbs here and 11 carbs there...but you have to read the labels. I think it's a wonderful diet with plenty of variety. I also added the Atkins shakes and enjoy packs of tuna with low-card mayo. Wasa crackers with butter and sugar free jelly. Hot tea with sweetners and so on. It's not hard, but it takes effort. But it's all for "me" so I make the effort. I started out at 237 and just this morning was 196.4 so I still have a ways to go. I have elected to just stay on the Induction part but I "treat" myself every other Friday and go out to a restaurant and then to a movie. Technically I "blow it" but I don't really go overboard...I just give myself a little break on this day and maybe have something different like Mexican, Tai, or Indian food. Then right back on it. AND by-the-way, my blood sugar went from 201 to 117 in the first four days! I wish everyone well in their journey towards loosing weight! (And keeping it off!) barb
