Atkins Diet Long-Term Ain’t Easy, But Is Better Than Low-Calorie

Filed under: Atkins Diet — @ June 24, 2007

Whenever I receive an e-mail from someone who talks about their long-term success on the low-carb lifestyle, I am beaming with pride. From a decade-long Atkins dieter to these two prime examples of livin’ la vida low-carb, the truth is clear whether you hear about it from the media or not–lots of people are losing weight and getting healthy eating a low-carb diet.

And it ain’t just temporary either! Why?

Well, this study explains that when you decide to begin implementing a long-term lifestyle change over at least an 18-month period rather than simply beginning a diet (which means you’ll “die” to a “t”!), you are more likely to succeed at weight loss.

It’s like I always say–find a plan that works for you, follow that plan until you reach your weight loss goal, and then keep doing that plan FOREVER! It really works if you make it work for you. Weight management is not easy, but it IS possible.

Take it from a 65-year old reader of my “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog who has been on the Atkins diet since 1998. This gentleman had tried the highly-recommended low-calorie diets and they just didn’t work for him.
