Atkins 1st Month Results

Okay, so it's been exactly one month since I started the Atkins and gluten free diet. I honestly can't believe that I've made it a month already and it flew by. I've never experienced an easier month of dieting in my life! I'm seriously not kidding. This diet has been so easy and I'm very happy with the results. Below is a list of what to expect from the Atkins diet and how I fared. 

✔️ Changes in your energy levels - There have defiantly been changes in my energy level. The fits two weeks, I had NONE, but after that I had days of high energy and some no so much. 

✔️ Decreased hunger and carb cravings - This one was the most amazing. I've never in my entire life been able to quit sugar altogether much less sugar and gluten at the same time. The lack of appetite and cravings is amazing. I don't usually crave anything and if I do see something that looks good like this past Sunday at church when all the ladies brought yummy deserts for dinner one the ground, I look at the stuff and think, "oh, that looks nice." And the thought is over and no cravings. Also, the loss of appetite is crazy! I had to be careful and still do because it's very easy to skip meals and not even realize it till it's too late. Decreased hunger and carb cravings? ABSOLUTELY!

✔️ A few negative side effects - The only real side effect other that being pretty pooped the first two weeks was constipation. It's a problem but can easily be avoided by drinking lots of water and taking a herbal laxative each night. In biggie!

✔️ Rapid weight loss - I'd say this was a yep! They say you can lose 15 lbs in the first two weeks and some people have so it is possible. I actually lost 11 lbs the first two weeks. I lost like .6 the next week and today I was down 4.8 lbs. so for the month I'm down 15 lbs. and that's not to shabby if I do say so myself. 

So month #1 is done, finished, kaput! Now on to month #2. I'm hoping to lose 10 lbs this month and continue on till I make it to my goal weight of 145 for the first time in my adult life. I am doing it and with out much effort thanks to The New Atkins Diet.

  1. Congrats! Bob has used Atkins in years past. It is good for men cuz they can eat til they are full and not worry about it. Bob had trouble with halitosis and constipation is a big one but they say to use vitamin supplements. I know people say it is hard on kidneys tho but Bob didn't have problems with that.

  3. Keep going! Christa, our daughter, has lost nearly 40 pounds. The first time she started in 2009, she lost 70 pounds. It took her 4 years to put it on, but she is at it again. I think everyone has a certain plan that will work for them and this is Christas. She doesn't use artificial sweetener or special premade meals. We were in Japan the first time and you couldn't find that stuff. Secondly, the sugar free stuff can really do a number on your body. Keep going. Praying for you.
