    I want to start the atkins diet, but I only know the basics, like no bread.
    Are slim jims accetable?

    If you really want to do Atkins proper, go buy the book.

    I would suggest looking more into a standard "good" nutritional base and exercise first though.

    Why don't you actually do a little research on a diet before you start it?

    Technically the body does need carbs but it doesn't need dietary carbs, it is capable of creating enough glucose on it's own to supply the parts that need it from other substances.

    Don't go on the atkins diet. There is no magical way to lose weight quickly. Do cardio every single day. Lift weights every single day, and just watch what you eat.

    Your body just runs better with carbs. If you want to feel shitty, go right ahead. But don't come crawling back when you pass out and hit your head on the sidewalk. Oh, yeah, and once your off the diet -- the weight usually comes back.

    :werd:i tried atkins for a couple weeks and lost a measly 4 pounds. Then i just went on a low calorie diet and added cardio to my workout (as opposed to just lifting) and in a little more than a month ive lost nearly 20 pounds:bigthumb: And that was with a couple days off that set my diet back like 4 days :( basically all im doing is eating a sald for one meal and just a normal sized meal for the other. no snacks, only diet sodas. ive also started to get meal bars which help (in replacement for a meal, not as a snack fatty;))
