I am on the Atkins diet again, whether I want to call it that or not. .. because the world – and I mean all of the fitness mags that I am reading- all talk about avoiding sugar and white flour and pasta and adding more fiber and whole grains all while avoiding calling the proposed diet “low carb” or worse referencing the Atkins diet, when in fact that is what these diets are – Atkins in disguise! So if lowering our carb intake is good, why is everyone so crazy against the Atkins Diet? Because it is hard like all diets, but unlike all diets Atkins works very well. . . If you actually read the Atkins Book you get the message about how our American diet is full of processed white flour and sugar and if you cut a lot of these out you are left with nutitious food. . . . MY DINNER USED TO LOOK LIKE THIS : Chicken, rice, and sald. I take off the rice and add more salad. Is this more or less healthy? There are a lot of carbs in vegetables and I just do not believe that the empty callories that I am avoiding are somehow hurting me. . .
Final note on that is: I know what has worked for me in the past and the only diet that has everput a dent in my gut is the Atkins diet. . . Everyone’s body is different and for me carbs are very very bad. I have a sedentary job, quick energy does not get used and turns to fat that hangs on my body . .
Anyway, I have been on the diet for 6 days now and I feel really good. I do not get cravings. I do not get hungry. I do not have gas. It is actually a great feeling. e’s see how we aredoing tomorow!
