CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - July 28, 2016) - The popular and controversial Atkins Diet has helped numerous dieters achieve their rapid weight loss goals. The diet, invented by Robert Atkins, emphasizes a low-carbohydrate diet, with the elimination of sugar in particular. Starches and refined sugars such as: pastas, potatoes, breads and pastries are to be eliminated from the diet in favor of lean proteins, low-carb vegetables and fats. The Atkins diet works by bringing the body into a state of 'ketosis' where the body no longer depends on carbohydrates for energy and instead searches for previously stored fat to burn for fuel. When performed properly, the Atkins diet has many benefits in addition to weight loss which include, the lowered risk of cardiovascular diseases, the lowered risk of inflammation-related diseases and the reduced risk of diabetes.
The Atkins diet is high in protein as well as high in fat, which has led to its main misconception of being a 'meat-based' diet. However, while the diet does not include caloric restrictions or limits on protein intake, changes have been made since Robert Atkins' passing which stipulate that moderate amounts of protein should be consumed along with high-fiber vegetables and legumes. Diet Doc -- a medical weight loss program, suggests that diets higher in protein can make one feel more full throughout the day and stabilize blood sugar levels thus, reducing sabotaging food cravings. However, Diet Doc also warns that not all protein is created equal as several foods high in protein are also high in fat and cholesterol. Those following the Atkins diet should opt for lean meats such as fish or poultry as well as plant-based proteins such as, legumes, quinoa, nuts, seeds and tofu to meet their protein needs.
