is to make Atkins weight loss diet plan simple to follow. Here’s the New Atkins in a nutshell: The key to slimming down and enhancing your health is to train your body to burn more fat. And the way to do that, quickly and effectively, is by cutting back on sugars and other refined carbohydrates and allowing fat—including your own body fat—to become your primary source of energy. That’s why, with the Atkins diet plan, fat is your friend. This book will give you all the knowledge and tools you’ll need to make this metabolic shift shift during your weight loss journey.
Here are three enhancements in The New Atkins for a New You
that make the Atkins diet plan easier and more pleasant to follow than ever before:
- You’ll be introduced to a bad guy and a good guy. These two new “characters” help you understand complicated metabolic concepts. The “metabolic bully” conspires to keep you heavy, but its archenemy, the Atkins Edge, is your ally. It can vanquish the bully and allow you to burn your own fat for energy, moderate your appetite and eliminate carb cravings so you can reach and maintain your goal weight—for good.
- You’ll learn how to prevent or moderate symptoms that can make your initial experience with Atkins weight loss less pleasurable. The tiredness, weakness, leg cramps and other symptoms that can accompany your first few days or weeks on the diet have nothing to do with carb restriction or eating fat or protein. Instead, the symptoms result from the diet’s naturally diuretic effect. Along with the excess water that made you feel bloated, you may lose electrolytes. The simple solution is to drink plenty of fluid and make sure to restore your balance of minerals, including potassium and sodium. You’ll learn how in The New Atkins for a New You.
- You’ll learn how to let go of Induction once it’s done its job of kick-starting weight loss and how to move seamlessly through the more liberal phases that follow—all without losing control. Because until you’ve learned a permanent and sustainable way of eating, there’s no way you’re going to be able to maintain your new weight. You’ll learn how in The New Atkins for a New You.
