Atkins Weight Loss Plan

Atkins weight loss plan success during Induction:

Are you ready for Atkins weight loss plan phase two?

By now you have probably seen some pretty dramatic changes in your body and are likely feeling euphoric as it begins to dawn on you that it’s within your power to achieve the new you.

You are probably now catching glimpses of that new person on the horizon – if not in your own mirror. That new you is thinner, happier, healthier, and more confident.

Now it’s time for you to take a serious look at your body and decide what you want to do with it and how you want it to look. Be realistic. In all probability, you don’t expect to be an Olympic athlete or a fashion model. On the other hand, you may be selling yourself short by setting goals that are too modest.

Are you willing to accept “pleasingly plump”? Many of you think that such goals would be quite all right – or even more than you dare hope for.

Frankly, I think you should set your sights higher than that. How about a weight target based on your height, age and bone structure? How about excellent health and vigor that’s surprising for someone your age? Trust me, that’s not being overly ambitious. That’s being truly realistic!

As I’m sure you’ve guessed, the degree of resistance to weight loss that your body shows corresponds to your degree of difficulty in getting well into lipolysis. By definition, resistance to weight loss is resistance to lipolysis.

During Atkins weight loss plan Induction you were consuming about 20 grams of carbs per day.

The carbohydrate level was extremely low because Dr Robert Atkins wanted to demonstrate that it is possible for virtually everybody to experience lipolysis, or fat burning, from the person who can lose weight quite easily on almost any program to the hardest case – the person who, until doing Atkins, thought that losing weight was almost impossible.

I am sure that almost all of you were losing weight. Those who didn’t should look at this article and work with the special weight loss plan Atkins have devised for patients with extreme metabolic resistance.

Many of you, however, are now looking forward to liberalizing your menu.
