Recently a friend of mine asked me if I had ever heard of the famous Atkins diet, something that is not as well known as the Ketogenic diet. For those who are unaware, the Atkins diet is a fairly extreme diet plan that restricts your food intake to only a few healthy foods that are known to help aid in weight loss.
While it may be considered more extreme than other diet plans, the keto diet is a proven success. There are many diet plans out there, but not many people are willing to tell you that the keto diet is a successful plan.
The idea behind the keto diet is that you consume low-carb foods that are rich in protein. These low-carb foods come from the vegetables and fruits that are normally consumed during the day. In theory, you should be able to eat the same foods as the rest of the world.
Your body therefore will not be expecting a diet change at all, and instead, you will soon find yourself at a level where you can eat without too much guilt. It is important that you start off on the keto diet slowly, and that you try to eat the foods that you enjoy most before going on the keto diet.
The plan involves eating only carbohydrates for three days and then starting the diet off with only proteins. By the end of the second week, you will only be eating fat for snacks and as such the next week, you will have to take a break.
At this point, you will be reintroduced to the foods that you have been eating for the past few weeks, and you will be on the lookout for the warning signs that you need to stop the diet. When the warning signs appear, you will need to carefully re-think your diet and set yourself back on track.
The keto diet has had great success in the United States and has seen some success in Europe as well. If you are ready to experience this diet, the best thing that you can do is to find a good book or guide on the subject and get started.
By learning the basics of the diet, you will soon be able to follow all the more advanced guidelines, such as the calculation of the calorie deficit needed to achieve your goals, the theory of the diet, and more. This will allow you to easily adjust your diet, and your body will begin to adapt to the new plan.
Many people find that the biggest change that they have to deal with is a poor performance when it comes to their diet and exercise routine. Many people find that after just a few weeks on the diet, they lose a lot of weight and find that they look a lot of slimmer.
The weight loss results are quite impressive, and after a few months of following the keto diet, many people find that they are down about 30 pounds and the scales are showing that they have lost about 8 pounds. You will soon be ready to challenge other people to see who can lose the most weight on the keto diet.
The Atkins diet may cause a few negative effects to occur, but the positive things outweigh the negatives quite often. If you are thinking about trying the keto diet, you may find that you really enjoy the simplicity and focus that it provides.
