Following the guidance of this book can change your life, but like any change you have to make it happen. I've been strictly following the advice in the book, carefully watching labels and limiting the carbs in everything I eat. In doing so I am consistently dropping the lbs. Sure some days the scale is angry and says otherwise but the proof is in my pants size, shirt sizes and new belt I've had to buy.
It's an interesting thing being on Atkins, it turns out many believe it's a poor diet. Rather than debate with people, I look in the mirror and watch the scale smiling ;-) Besides, what's worse, a few grams of fat a day or carrying around an extra 25 or more lbs? I choose to believe the results and am thankful for my Dr. who recommended this book and diet. The book discusses many studies and research that proves it's healthy if done right. I did have to get Potasium pills to keep from having leg cramps, and buying the ketosis strips helps verify that you are doing the diet correctly (how cool is that! you can pee on a test strip and see if you are doing it right, I love this!). As in all things, it takes time and consistently sticking to it to make it work.
Don't let anyone fool you, you have to be strong and make it happen, but with the guidance of this book it can and will happen if you are willing to make the changes. I don't want to outline the reasons why the diet works, you really need to carefully read the book to follow that. Just know it works and give it a try.
Buy the printed book, I bought both and while I read the Kindle version, it was much harder to move around, look at the tables as referenced in the text and so forth. Also, with a book I use as a reference one read (such as this, a bible etc) I write in the margins and on pages to make notes and refer back to things. I prefer to do that with a physical book vs an ebook.
5 stars for the book since it delivers what it promises and can change your life is you work with it.
I used an earlier version of the book and cut the carbs and walked a couple miles most nights after work. After about 6 weeks, I had lost 35 lbs and my "bad" cholesterol went way down and my "good" cholesterol went up. That's eating fats and proteins - all the "bad" things your not supposed to eat.
Once you trim down, just go back and eat in moderation.
I have also noticed an improvement in my mood and energy also. The Induction phase was a lot easier than I thought it would be because I was eating the food (meat, cheese and green leafy veggies) that fill me up. Oatmeal, cereal and wheat bread has never done that for me. I could eat a bowl of cereal and 2 hours later I felt like chewing my own arm off.
Anyway, I think this book is well worth your time. But I will say it will only work if you're determined to stick it out. BTW, I'm not Skip. This is his wife Dee.
