A New Diet Venture with The Atkins Diet

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

So I have some very exciting news to share with you today! I will be participating in the Atkins diet. Atkins is the original and leading low carb weight loss program. With Atkins you get balanced weight loss on a body of scientific research.

Normally, your body has two sources of fuel that it burns and sugar is the first one. But when carbs are low enough, your body will burn fat. The Atkins Diet works by flipping the body's metabolic switch from burning carbs to burning fat. The way to do this is optimal protein intake, proper healthy fat intake, and low carbohydrate consumption. If you can do all those, your hunger and cravings will be reduced more quickly rather than using a low calorie and high carb diet.

The beautiful thing about The Atkins Diet is that it's 100% free and there is NO cost to do the program. Atkins has an online community, resource center, recipes, tools, and meal plans at http://atkins.com.

I decided to take the leap and try The Atkins Diet because I haven't had much luck with anything else. I know that I love my carbs but I really am curious to see if I am able to cut the excess out of my diet, I will see some great results.

I really don't bother to monitor my carb intake currently and I also have let myself go with portion sizes. When eating in large amounts, carbs are macronutrient responsible for raising blood levels of saturated fat and triglycerides. And a low-fat diet is almost always a high-carb diet. When carbs are low-fiber, your body becomes most vulnerable to blood sugar highs and lows that leave you hungry and low on energy. That's a big problem for me. I get plenty of sleep so I know that my diet is affecting my energy levels. Atkins improves cholesterol profiles and blood sugar levels and I am very excited to try a low-carb lifestyle.

One of my major pet peeves with my diet situation is my midriff bulge. And midriff bulge is usually the result of too much sugar and processed carbs. BINGO! Do I really need another reason to try The Atkins Diet? I am so excited to keep you guys up to date with how it goes. So stay tuned!
