This results in weight loss but can have a positive knock-on effect on other areas of your life too. When you reduce your carbs, you feel less bloated. Carbs make the body retain water so typically within a week or so your clothes start to fit better.
High carb meals also cause a sharp spike in insulin levels followed by a crash which can leave you feeling hungry, irritable and tired. With more stable blood sugar levels, you tend to have more energy and fewer food cravings. You’ve probably already noticed that the more sugar you eat, the more you want, but this feeling goes away so it’s much easier to stick to Atkins.
