* The average person can expect to lose 1-2 lbs. per week. Results may vary. Weight loss is influenced by exercise, food consumed and diet
One day I looked at myself in a mirror, i weighed 275lbs and stood out in a crowd in a negative way. I was always tired, drew no positive attention (only bad laughs) and had no energy to keep up with my friends.
I decided it was time for a lifestyle change. I had tried many different diets but was always hungry and after a couple weeks failed to stay on track. I bought some books and did some research.
After a couple hard nights of studying, I decided to give Atkins a try. After only a couple of weeks, I was almost down 15lbs. Most of that was water weight but enough to raise an eyebrow and keep me going. A few weeks later weight loss stopped. I became very nervous and started searching different news forums. The help I received was amazing, enough to encourage me to keep going.
Over the next couple of months, my family and coworkers were curious what I was doing, after sharing they even asked for advice. This reaction made me feel something I had never felt before, and eventually I lost more then the 75lbs I had hoped for.
Today, 8 months later I continue to live the Atkins lifestyle, and have many followers who too have had results similar to mine. During this whole time I have NEVER starved myself and have always felt comfortable customizing my meals at any restaurant I attend.
Atkins has helped me reach several of my goals, including climbing many 14ers, hiking the Manitou Incline, meeting new friends, and living a happy lifestyle.
A big THANK YOU to all of those who’ve helped me along the way, and all of the many company’s who are now making Atkins friendly products and meals.
My goal was to lose 75lbs and not kill myself in the process. I wanted to live a healthier life and do things like hiking, playing sports, and live an active lifestyle. I was tired of waking up tired and being exhausted after walking up a flight of stairs.
How Atkins Helped Get Me There: Atkins helped by providing me with recipes, a friendly support forum, friendly competition, and quick results.
