The diet implies ingesting little carbs in order to change your body’s metabolism so that it consumes stored body fat and converts it into energy during a process called ketosis. Read More Atkins Diet
It consists of four phases:
1. Induction – the first phase takes about two weeks and can lead to losing 5 to 10 pounds if combined with exercise. You are not allowed to have more than 20 grams of carbs/day, and these can only come from salads.
2. Ongoing weight loss – in this phase, you can add five more grams of carbs and nuts to your diet and keep the same rules as in the
first phase. Keep this diet until you are 10 pounds close to your target.
3. Pre-maintenance – now you get to increase the amount of carbs with 10 grams a week, and you can add pasta or rice. Keep this diet until you get to the target.
4. Life maintenance – in order not to gain the weight back, you need to keep the amount of carbs ingested at 90 grams a day, for the rest of your life.
