Those who want to lose weight &, even those who don’t need to lose weight.
Reason? - The dramatic effect on our weight & shape brought about by Carbohydrates.
For years the companies “selling weight loss “ have instilled in us the evils of fat.
Without doubt, carbs have a much greater impact on weight than does fat.
(Wonder why the weight-loss companies haven’t mentioned this?)
(My comments are not a comparison of the health benefits of carbs v fat, merely the effects on weight loss).
Do read it.
Follow the advice (even if only for 3 months).
You will be amazed at the diets & the effects on your weight & your shape.
I tried Dukan too, which is similar and a little newer, it was a bit too French to work for me for more than a few months - again hard to follow long term. The inclusion of oatbran seems good though. The early low carb diets lacked an important ingredient: fibre!
Mr. GP recently recommended I follow Atkins to avoid diabetes (I believe she has followed i herself, perhaps still does). However, I have been having more success using intermittent fasting (IF, the "5-2/Fast" diet), which is extremely simple and effective: I have lost almost 2 stone in 1.5 years - yes I have been able to stick with it! I eat largely what I want - including some carbs & bread - but I avoid overdoing the carbs (esp. sugar & potato/starch) and try to take in most of my food as protein, fats/oils & fibre and smaller but regular amounts of fruit & veg. Recently I have also reduced my portions sizes & regularly skip meals if not particularly hungry - it just seems natural/sensible and more comfortable to do that now. IF offers other health benefits too - it feels healthier and more natural to me.
In conclusion: I believe Atkins is dated now and crude but it started the low carb. idea that almost all diets since have included - and the reason is simple: they are more effective & easier to follow; the previous "low fat"/"low calorie" diets were hard and simply did not work long term. Atkins was largely built on sound research: we eat too much sugar & simple carbs and they are very bad for us in such high quantities. We should eat less of those and more protein, fat and oil (especially "healthy" oils like fish, flax, olive and caonola/rapeseed oil) - but also I think complex carbs (fibre) & vitamin rich fruit (in moderation). However, I find IF simpler, easier to stick to long term and even more effective - and you can incorporate elements of Atkins/Dukan/etc. on your non-fast days to good effect too if you like (it makes sense to reduce sugar/starch intake).
