Lose excess weight and keep it off by consuming fewer carbohydrates, which allows your body to burn greater amounts of fat.
Founder Robert Atkins used the study documented in "Weight Reduction" (by Dr. Alfred W. Pennington, in the Journal of the A.M.A.) to solve his own weight issues. In 1972, he popularized the method by puglishing Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution.
As the diet is low-carb in design, it is generally claimed to be effective and has proven itself to be effective in short-term weight loss. However, nutritionalists point out that the diet is too low-carb to be healthy and for long-term, as some carbohydrates are necessary to the body.
There are four phases to the Atkins Diet
Phase 1: INDUCTION
Initial two week period designed to push the body into ketosis. Carbohydrate
limited to less than 20 grams/day, 12-15 of which must come in the form of
salad greens and other fruits and
Phase 2: ONGOING WEIGHT LOSS
A small incremental increase in carb intake is introduced at 5 grams each
objective is to find the "Critical Carbohydrate level for Losing" per
individual and determine which foods are
suitable to maintain. Other dietary additions are incorporated based on the
Atikins Ladder. This phase lasts until
Phase 3: PRE-MAINTENANCE
Daily carb intake is increased again by 10 grams each week. Some forbidden carbs may be allowed. Water is still encouraged. Once target weight is achieved, and can be maintained for a month, daily carb consumption may be again increased by 10 grams per week. If weight-gain occurs, then revert to previous phase's levels.
Phase 4: LIFETIME MAINTENANCE
This final phases carries forth the habits aquired during the previous phases. Whole, unprocessed food choices are emphasized with the option to drop back to a previous phase if weight-gain occurs. Target carb intake is 45-100 grams per day.
The Atkins diet emphasizes an active lifestyle and recommends regular excersize programs.
