Question about low carbing?
I just bought some of the Atkins protein powder. If I drink one of those a day and try to stay as low carb as possible and exercised, will I see good results? I need to drop about 20 lbs. By the way, I tried the Atkins diet. It was just way too strict for me.

Thanks so much!

You should see some improvement. Just keep in mind it's not a magic process. It's just changing what your body uses for fuel. Since carbs burn so fast, that is the first choice but when that supply is low (and you are getting enough protein) fat goes next. Atkins is a little extreme for me too, but I do stick to low carb high protein as much as possible. good luck!
