Under the Atkins weight loss plan, you can eat all the meat, eggs, and cheese you want, while cutting back on carbohydrates such as pasta, bread, and fruit.  The theory behind the Atkins Diet is that increasing protein intake and reducing carbohydrate use will change your metabolism, allowing you to lose weight.

Fans of the Atkins Diet argue that high levels of carbohydrates cause an overproduction of insulin, causing hunger and weight gain.  Under the Atkins plan, carbohydrates are limited to just 15 to 60 grams a day.

Atkins Diet is easy to follow

One major advantage of the Atkins Diet—it’s easy to follow.  The Atkins Diet has become much easier to follow as there are now plenty of companies that make great tasting, low carb foods.   The Atkins Diet is billed as particularly effective for those who’ve tried low-fat, high-carbohydrate Diets.  The Atkins plan can lead to fewer food cravings and faster weight loss.  Eating protein keeps you fuller longer so you won't be that hungry while on the Atkins diet. You'll stick with the Atkins diet longer since you'll actually like the food you eat on the Atkins diet.

Nutritionists note that eating high amounts of fat, especially that found in meat, can lead to a greater risk of heart disease.   With the Atlins Diet, you have to give up potatoes, rice, pasta, rolls, desserts, and carbonized beverages.   Also, limiting carbohydrates means the body has to rely on fat or muscle for energy so try taking sports supplements to supplement your nutritional intake. When the body breaks down fat, a byproduct called ketones are formed.  The result may be initial weakness, but will subside in time.  These ketones can cause nausea, fatigue, and possibly harmful fluid loss.  This can be quite serious for people with diabetes, heart, or kidney troubles. Because of this, it is imperative that one drink lots of water.

You may find that the Atkins Diet may not be family friendly.  Children find it especially hard to give up breads, cereals and soda pop.
