The Atkins Diet

The Atkins Diet - Is a diet that only allows you to eat protein and extremely limited carbohydrates. It only works if you strictly follow the program. The goal of the program is to put your body into ketosis (A metabolic state in which the body breaks down fat to use as its primary source of energy.) Studies have shown that the Atkins diet is effective, but only followed to the letter. With most other diets if you fall off the wagon it only sets you back that day. However, the Atkins diet will set you back two plus weeks into the induction phase.
This diet is for people who have very high self control. Like most of us, we want to cheat once in a while. I myself tried it for a week. I hated it. Comments are welcome.
