The Atkins diet is based on a low-carb lifestyle and it is one of the most powerful weight-loss plans in the world. Avid followers of this dieting plan claim that this diet lets them lose weight while eating as much food as they want. It is a powerful weight-loss tool, but that statement is not entirely accurate. The golden rule of losing weight is that you must burn more calories than you consume. So when you are gauging the effectiveness of any dieting plan, then you need to keep that fact in mind. Will it help you remain at a calorie deficit? In regard to the Atkins diet, it will most definitely accomplish that goal. There have been a lot of studies done that show low-carb diets can actually cause people to lose weight without the need for tracking calories. That tells me that it's easy to remain at a calorie deficit while consuming fewer carbs. The Atkins diet was originally dismissed as unhealthy because of its focus on foods high in fat. Until recently, fats were considered to be unhealthy, but in reality the right fats are extremely healthy. In fact, even bad fats are harmless when you compare them to artificial sugars and other GMOs. Since that important revelation, there has been an increase in the number of studies done on low-carb dieting. The results have been quite extraordinary. Lower blood sugar levels, higher HDL cholesterol counts, and significant weight loss are all found to be achievable under the Atkins diet. The reason low-carb diets are so effective lies in the higher intake of fats and protein, both of which will reduce your overall appetite. You'll end up eating fewer calories without having to give it much thought. That's why people don't really have to count calories on this diet. However, I still encourage you to keep track of what you eat because it helps you boost the effectiveness of this diet.
