When it comes to diet options for women, you are spoilt for choice by all the magazines and websites claiming to be the next big thing.
However, just how can you sort the good from the bad, the genuine from the fad and the effective from the downright dangerous?
Atkins offers you a scientifically proven route which will give long term weight loss, providing you with clear guidelines that will allow you to shed those pounds safely and continue enjoying the foods you love.
Before you begin your diet, it is important to consider exactly what you want to achieve. Short term goals, like getting in trim for a summer holiday, can help to motivate you but look at the bigger picture too, as Atkins is a lifestyle change where you are able to lose the weight and maintain the loss for life.
How much weight do you actually want to lose? Considering these questions early on will make it much easier to reach your goals in the long run. Many diet plans for women promise fast weight loss, and it can be very tempting to try this option. However, this could eventually do more harm than good, as these diets often involve cutting calories or fat intake to a very low level. This leaves you susceptible to hunger pangs and cravings and, as this type of diet isn’t easy to stick to long term, you tend to see the weight pile back on; with a few more lbs added too! This is called ‘yo-yo’ dieting.
New Atkins offers a plan that can be successfully followed for the long term, eventually becoming a lifestyle change that you build up to naturally over time. Our diet involves reducing your carbohydrate intake, which means limiting starchy food such as pasta, rice, bread and sugary foods and drinks.
However, because our plan involves training your body to burn fat you can continue to enjoy a whole host of other foods, such as cheese, poultry, red meat and seafood. You can also get complex carbs, in the form of vegetables, from day one. In the absence of high carb foods, your body switches to burning fat as fuel instead. This fuel is provided by the dietary fat you eat and also by burning body fat; leaving you with a trim figure.
To keep your diet plan exciting, we have put together lots of tempting recipes that you can enjoy at various stages of your Atkins journey. Unlike most diets aimed at women, our plan is an effective, long term change backed by independent nutritional experts. It really is a thoroughly effective way to enjoy a new, more confident you.
Once you have had a chance to look at the research and gets to grips with all four stages of Atkins, you can start by calculating your BMI. This will allow us to advise you on which stage of the diet to begin at, allowing you to really make the most out of New Atkins.
