The Atkins diet is great. As long as you stay on it for the rest of your life. Or if you learn how to eat properly after you are done with it. I lost 30 pounds in 3 months went off the diet and 7 months later I was right back where I stated plus 10 pounds. The problem was once I left the diet I started eating alot of carbs and they turned right to fat. I was stupid for stopping I went back on it again lost the weight but now I am eating more properly and am keeping the weight off. I just started using the stacker2 pills I am not sure how they will work. I am hopeing it is an answer to all of my problems. The Atkins diet was for a little while. It is hard to cut the carbs out of your diet forever. Especially since I love Pasta.

The diet itself is not hard.

First you must count your carbs. Carbs are a big part of your diet you wouldn't believe how many carbs you eat in a day. You body has a natural order in which it uses food for energy. Carbs are a bigest part of your diet they are natural sugars. Your body will burn the carbs before it burns anything else. So in order to trick your body into burning fat first you must take in only 20 carbs a day for the first two weeks. No mor not less. This will put your body into a state of kitosis. Once in the state of kitosis you body will burn fat before it burns carbs. That means watching carbs. After the two weeks you can increase to 60 or even 100 calories depending on how fast you want to lose the weight. Since everything but protien has carbs in it, you can guess what you diet will be. Steak, eggs, cheese, hamburger (no bun), fish, basicaly any meat. The soda which you can drink which I drank during the diet is diet soda which has no carbs. The down side is none of the following, Ketchup = 4 carbs per table spoon, pasta (don't even think about it, Bread (out of the question), Soda, beer, actually any alcohol is a no no because you don't have carbs in you body to absorbe it. You get drunk off of a beer when on this diet ( Believe me when I tell you that). In all it is a good diet it will lower you blood pressure, lower your cholesterol and make you lose weight, but you have to make sure you follow the rules or you will gain alot of weight. You will see fast results but after the first 20 pounds it gets harder. Well if you have any other questins let me know. I think the diet is a good one but like I said earlier follow the rules.
