I’ve been on the Atkins diet for about 3 months and have reached a plateau, how can I get over with and lose the remaining pounds?

    I certainly hope you are off Atkins by now! That particular diet is very dangerous and you should have researched it before undertaking its regimen. The high protein intake is extremely hard on the kidneys and has caused damage to other organs as well. I lost 103 pounds six years ago and I have kept it off. I did NOT follow any diet and I ate three meals a day and I even had whatever dessert was on the table. I simply ate much smaller meals and the only “exercise” I did was go up and down two flights of stairs several times a day. You simply cannot deprive yourself on these fad diets because you end up putting the weight back on whenever you leave the diet! It took me one year to lose all that weight but I am a different person for having done it. My terrible back pain has been lessened so much that I no longer require any morpheine for it and I was taking morpheine daily.

      Sorry to say that I do not believe you know much about the Atkins lifestyle. It is NOT a high protien diet. It is low carb and moderate protein. The emphasis is on healthy eating, lots of vegg! It is not about eating meat. I have been following Atkins for 10 months and have lost 65 pounds. My bad numbers are down, my good numbers are up and my kidney functions are excellant. To the writer, slightly increase your fat intake and make sure you are drinking enough water.

    Diets are only good short term. Longer term to maintain or continue to lose weight at a measured pace, you need a nutritional blueprint that is specifically designed for you. I’ll be sharing some of the reasons why in a free call I’m hosting tomorrow night. You can find out more at http://www.feedingyourfreedom.com/preview. Now I see this post is old. I hope you found your answer!

    As an aside, I’d like to know how this turned out, as your post is over a year old.

    You can clear this plateau by adding interval training to your work-out regimen. In short, this includes adding intense but short periods of exercise to your exercise program 2-3 days/week. Doing this and keeping your caloric intake the same will help. I also would encourage you to discuss adding some carbohydrates back into your diet with a skilled nutritionist as carbohydrates are the foods that acutually provide you with long-lasting energy. Work with an exercise physiologist, NOT a personal trainer. The former are scientists educated in the pysiological mechanism of exercise and its impact on the body. They are the most competant to help you devise a program that will suit your personal needs and goals best. Do a Google search for an exercise physiologist near you and make an appointment.
