Hello Everyone,

According to this website, which explains how the Atkins diet works, it says that cutting out the carbs works better for losing weight than cutting out other source of energy because the body stores fat when it detects that sugar levels are higher than a certain point. Thus, consuming, say, 300 calories of carbs is more likely to cause you to gain weight than 300 calories of fat. Is there any truth to this, and if so does anybody recommend the Atkins diet for losing weight?


Any Idea , Suggestions would be appreciated,

Thanks,

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.

Idk specifically about the Atkins diet, because it's like a marketing thing. But from experience, a low carb diet does work yes, coupled with exercise of course. It's hard to start with but you'll get used to it. Make sure to get enough protein though to stop your body metabolising your muscle mass as a source of energy. Do some research into low-carb diets and carb-cycling and you're well on your way.
