#1 Can be a bit Pricey
Eating fresh & non-processed food do have a downside, and that is the price. The Atkins diet meals came out to an average of $100.52 per week, 84.6 percent more than the national average spent on weekly groceries. Make sure your budget is ready.
#2 Celebrities are fans of the diet
Robbie Williams, Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian & Alyssa Milano, are some the many celebrity followers of the diet. Aside for the fact that they can afford it, their good health truly reflects the results of the diet.
#3 It is not going to easy
Dieting is obviously not going to be easy. Some people on Atkins tend to have initial side effects, including headaches, dizziness, weakness, fatigue & constipation. But I think the gain worth the pain.
#4 Low Carb, not low Cal
Atkins works by reducing sugar & carbs so that the body doesn’t burn these for fuel but burns fat instead. You are counting your net carb rather than calories.
#5 Having a hard time counting carbs?
Thank you 2017, for giving us the technology to make a lot of stuff easier including counting carbs. There are a lot of websites and even apps for that. Google is your friend.
#6 There is a place for Vegans & Vegetarians too!
There is a non-meat diet that you can follow. You can get your protein from eggs, cheese, & soy products. You can also eat seeds, nuts, soy products, soy & rice cheeses, and high-protein grains like quinoa.
#7 Lots of Protein
Protein is a large part of your daily food intake. You can get your protein from lots of places, including eggs, poultry, seafood, buffalo and even bacon.
#8 Say Cheese!
A diet with cheese? Yup, it is true! Atkins advocates eating both dairy & healthy fats.
#9 Atkins has two diet plans
Atkins 20 and Atkins 40. With Atkins 20, you start by eating only 20 net carbs per day & eventually add more carbs as you go along its four phases. This plan is recommended for people who have 40 or more pounds to lose.
In Atkins 40 you can eat 40 net carbs per day. With this plan you eat three meals & two snacks per day. This option is good for people who have less than 40 pounds to lose, are breast feeding, or just need a little more .
#10 They can be delivered to you!
If you’ve got the cash, you can get fresh Atkins meals delivered to you. You can subscribe and get a personalized meal plan and not trouble yourself with all the preparation and whatnot.
