The grandfather of low carb diet plans, Atkins appears to be a plan with strong stability and staying power. While initially suffering a fair bit of controversy for its rigid nature, the revised Atkins diet plan is diverse, flexible, and suited to individuals that wish to lose a large amount of weight, to those intent on losing a bit of holiday chub in time for Spring Break.
Atkins cites common low carb principles in its approach to weight loss and maintenance. It’s primary argument states that a high carb diet causes falling and spiking sugar levels, which leads to increased hunger and decreased body fat burning. Atkins argues that a low carb approach will keep blood levels steady and allow you to feel satisfied without limiting calories.
Atkins has two tailored diet plans, Atkins 20 and Atkins 40. Atkins 20 is more oriented around a concentrated and strict approach to low carbs, and Atkins 40 is for those who have less than 40 pounds to lose, and offers more flexibility overall.
SimplyProtein products will fit best in to Phase 3 and 4 of Atkins 20. Phases 1 and 2 of Atkins 20 are still rather limiting, so it is important to eat as many whole foods as possible. SimplyProtein products are well suited to all aspects of the Atkins 40 diet plan.
