It's not zero carbs for two weeks. It's 20 carbs for 2 weeks, then gradually adding on carbs until you find the amount of carbs that you can still eat without gaining weight and that you can continue to lose.

You must be a vegan warrior . Atkins died of complications of a fall not his diet. I hope others dislike this false info on your post.

She doesn't even know what a fad diet is. Atkins has been around for nearly 50 years. That's not a fad.

Every time you want to kickstart a healthy lifestyle and drop a few pounds, you’re overwhelmed by this insistent urge of eating unhealthy meals and snacks and end up with a kitchen stacked with them https://helloworld-i4ln6sgakq-an.a.run.app/aHR0cCUzQSUyRiUyRjh4NGp0Yy5jbiUyRkE2Qk5SNWF2NWlwSw%3D%3D

"The weight lost is usually regained when you start eating normally." Unlike with most diets where you can go back to eating ice cream and cheetos and you stay trim.

I did atkins diet as a last resort and I lost 75 pounds. In 4 months. Friends were asking me if I was ok lol. When you finally find the right diet, it works like magic. And I had failed at weight watchers (3x), nutrisystem, LA. weight loss, cabbage soup diet, diet pills, slim fast, south beach diet, and pritikin diet. Atkins WORKS.

Did I miss something? Never answered how to start an Atkins diet. Dr. Atkins was Cardiologist who used his diet to prepare his patients for surgery. 🤔🤔

It does not lead to heart disease it has helped many people reduce blood pressure and overall medical issues. Your brain doesn't need carbs for your brain. Good fats give you better energy and your body doesn't spike from carb loads. If your going to speak about something then stop treating us all like idiots and use real facts

So incorrect information aside, Erica Cushion did not address anything to do with the Atkins diet. Go to the Atkins website if you want accurate information. This twit is clueless. https://www.atkins.com/how-it-works/atkins-blogs/colette-heimowitz/comparing-the-new-atkins-to-the-original-atkins “Hi, my name is Erica Cushion a registered dietitian with In Balance Pilates in Wilmington, North Carolina here to talk to you about how to start the Atkins diet. The materials you need to start the Atkins diet are fundamental knowledge of the advantages of eating carbohydrates and also know how to avoid proteins that are high in fat. The Atkins diet is a fad diet that was popular in the 1990’s it’s characterized by a two week period with no carbohydrates and then slowly adding in a very restricted amount of carbohydrates after that. Protein and fat are generally unrestricted. Weight that is lost is usually regained when you begin eating normally. Step 1.) Be wary of diets that eliminate entire food groups like carbohydrates. Your brain needs carbohydrates to run. Step 2.) Be wary of diets that promise quick weight loss. This weight is usually regained after you begin eating normally. Step 3.) Because the Atkins diet has proteins and fat unrestricted it is shown to lead to heart disease. So instead of starting the Atkins diet look for a more well balanced diet that is promoted by a registered dietician and promises a slow and steady weight loss of 1-2 lbs a week. “
