Atkins Does Not Work

by Erik Shier

The promise of unlimited quantities

I tried the Atkins diet a few years ago. The promise of a diet where I could actually eat without paying attention to the quantities sounded very appealing.

It soon turned out it wasn't as good as I expected.

One day -- then collapse

I started the diet eating lots of proteins and almost no carbohydrates. In the first day things were not very bad.

The problems started on the second day. I had a hard time trying to do my work, which is very intense, intellectual work. Concentration was hard. I felt I had no energy.

Success with balanced diet

I still tried to follow the diet for more 3 days, until I gave up. My productivity at work was very low and I felt really bad and tired.

I then followed the hard path: small portions of healthy, balanced food and exercises. Since following this nutrition program, with professional help, I don't have weight problems anymore.

So based on my experience I couldn't recommend the Atkins diet.
