Results are not typical

What do we mean when we say “Results not typical. Individual results will vary”?

At Atkins, we always encourage people to find their optimal weight and live a healthier life by eating the right foods and staying active.

However, we do want to set reasonable expectations. As we all know, everyone’s body works differently. Weight loss and weight gain are no exception as they are impacted by age, gender, metabolic rate, level of activity and state of health. Individual results will vary depending on these factors. For example, men’s bodies, by design, are larger and have a higher percentage of muscle and lower percentage of fat versus women. The added muscle, in large part, is due to higher levels of the hormone testosterone and allows them to lose weight faster. In contrast, women and older individuals generally lose weight at a slower rate.
