The Atkins diet is made for OBESE/OVERWEIGHT people. I suggest, you first know what categories you fall into - Click here

 The principle of this diet is to replace carbohydrates (the primary source of energy) with fats and proteins. In this way, fats and proteins are used for energy and the "excess body fat to regulate glucose levels" - The mechanism is long and I'm sure you guys aint interested.

For general knowledge; Fats are the source of energy during the periods of rest and light activity (like walking, sitting, typing etc.) and glucose (carbohydrates) is broken down during vigorous exercise. Brain relies on glucose for energy, not on proteins or fats. That's why feel shaky and irritable when you haven't eaten for a considerable amount of time.

My suggestion (if you are not overweight) is to have a balanced diet!

~ Fibres are very very important in your diet - and you get them from fruits, vegetables, rice, whole bread etc..
~ Nuts, seeds, meat, legumes are important sources of protein.
~Don't forget the dairy products - Milk, yoghurt, low-fat ice-creams!  
~ Choose the right type of fats - avoid saturated or trans-fat. (McDonald's NO-NO)
~ other nutritional food, like fruit juices.
~ Eat variety of foods! Dont stick to the one sort.

You cannot live without carbohydrates, it's necessary for survival. If you want to "tone" yourself, than the key is physical exercise and the balanced diet.

Junk food is not forbidden - it is recommended in tiny amounts and by tiny amounts, I mean, twice in a week or once in a month.


Happy Food Journey!

Ok- I'm 'normal weight' according to that, but I just feel ugh. Like- if I'm not careful I'll just end up being over weight.

Thanks Miss Nutritionist :P

TWICE A WEEK OR ONCE A MONTH. You must be kidddinngg ?!?!?!

The amount of junk I eat a day- must be about 4-6 times a day :/

I APOLOGIZE! My sleep-deprived brain made mistakes.

I meant, ONCE IN TWO OR ONCE IN A MONTH.

NOT twice in a week.  ::)


And, Yes, Roxy - you are NOT fat but you must start practising the right thing. Even prophet Muhammad (saw) used to eat less... and sleep less, and talk less.  :P

Oh, By the way.. sleeping helps lose weight.. because it burns down the fat. But over-sleeping kills, too.  ::)

Kills what ? The obesity encouraging cells ?

Kills you. I maybe, contradicting myself here but over-sleeping is related to heart diseases, and sometimes you cant get enough of it.

Over-sleeping is as bad as very little or no sleep at all. Everything in this world must be in 'moderation'.

Try to reduce it more Romy. 100 ml of pepsi has atleast 5-6 spoons of sugar. That makes you glycemic index suck real bad. :P

No no. I am modest. :P

7-8-9 hours of sleep only.

So like- you have 2 CHOCOLATE BARS ONCE A WEEK?!

haha. I don't 'over eat', I just need to keep my mouth moving, ALL THE TIME. So if I'm eating chewing gum, I wouldn't need anything :P But then- there's always so much junk at my grandmas :/

SLEEPING HELPS? LOOOL

Broken heart rather sounds sound. :P

This one :

Tell me why ? Ain't nothing but a heartache. Tell me why ? Ain't nothing but a mistake. Tell me why; I never wanna hear you say, that ...
