Ask the Nutritionist: A Weighty Question

Q: When can I expect to start losing weight on Atkins?

A: As with any diet, your individual rate of weight loss varies based on a variety of factors, including how much weight you have to lose, your age, sex and gender and your activity level. After you switch your metabolism to your back-up fuel system, which is fat burning, what you do lose will be primarily body fat. You will lose weight more quickly in Induction, but it’s important to know when to move on. Your weight loss will slow down as you move to the other phases (2 pounds a week is always a safe target), but you will also have access to a larger variety of foods. The point of Atkins is not only to lose the weight, but also to learn how you can make this new, healthy way of eating a permanent part of your lifestyle.
