What Is The Atkins Diet?
Atkins is the original leading low-carb weight loss plan that provides quick, effective, satisfying and balanced weight loss based on an extensive body of scientific research. The Atkins Diet is designed to “flip the body’s metabolic switch” from burning carbs to burning fat. Graduated carb introduction limits blood sugar and insulin spikes, which cause hunger and cravings, and result in overeating and weight gain.
Atkins has the additional application of being the weight loss plan of choice for the millions of people who have a reduced ability to process carbohydrates – those who have varying levels of “carbohydrate intolerance.”
The Atkins plan consists of four phases, with gradual increased carb intake for each phase. The plan allows an individual to find his or her perfect carbohydrate balance that is ideal for their personal weight loss or maintenance. Atkins dieters are motivated to change and maintain their eating patterns with delicious and healthy food options.
How can individuals following Atkins ensure they are getting a fully balanced, nutritional diet?
The Atkins Diet encourages the consumption of a healthy balance of nutrient dense food, adequate protein, a full array of high-fiber vegetables, low glycemic fruits and good fats, like avocado and olive oil. It teaches every individual to discover their own perfect carbohydrate balance. The Atkins Diet includes a wide variety of foods throughout the entire plan. Even during the Induction phase the concentration is on adequate intake of protein and fat, and a wide variety of vegetables to supercharge the body’s fat burning power and jumpstart weight loss. During the first two weeks, dieters can eat more vegetables on a daily basis than is recommended by the USDA. Progressing through the diet, seeds, nuts, low glycemic fruits and eventually whole grains are added in, with the amount dependent on each individual’s personal carbohydrate tolerance.
In addition to weight loss, what are some of the health benefits associated with Atkins?
Independent third-party clinical research has found that Atkins reduces risk factors for heart-disease, insulin resistance and diabetes.
Additionally, the average American consumes 156 pounds of added sugar each year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Imagine it: 31 five-pound bags per person per year. By eating carbohydrates in moderation, the Atkins Diet helps individuals (even those without diabetes) maintain stable blood sugar levels, leading to fewer carb cravings and more energy, among other health benefits. Scientific research has consistently found that subjects at a high risk for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) that were following the low-carb approach had improvements in their cholesterol profiles, decreasing their risk of developing CAD.
There are also many digestive benefits that come with following Atkins. Fiber requirements can be easily met because the Atkins Diet replaces highly refined, low-fiber carbohydrates with salad greens, fresh vegetables, low sugar fruit, nuts, seeds and whole grains. The diet includes lots of vegetables to replace processed foods, which increases fiber intake. A high-fiber diet is the best way to lower risk factors associated with the colon. Additionally, numerous scientific studies have confirmed that those eating a high-fiber diet have lower cholesterol levels and fewer incidences of heart disease than those on a low-fiber diet.
Can vegetarians follow the Atkins Diet? Vegans?
The Atkins Diet allows individuals to consume a wide variety of foods, all framed within a context of eating fewer carbohydrates and sugars. The diet can be followed as a vegetarian or vegan. Vegetarians can start in Ongoing Weight Loss at 30 grams of Net Carbs and introduce seeds and nuts before berries. Vegetarians will can get their protein from eggs, cheese and soy products. Vegans can get sufficient protein from seeds, nuts, soy products, soy and rice cheeses, seitan, legumes and high protein grains like quinoa. Vegans can start in Ongoing Weight Loss at 50 grams of Net Carbs so they can have nuts, seeds and legumes from the start.
It is common knowledge that Atkins limits carb intake, but does the diet allow for individuals to eat any carbs?
The Atkins Diet is a low-carb, not a no carb plan. People frequently mistake the first phase, Induction, for the entire Atkins plan. During Induction, the plan allows dieters to eat 20 grams of net carbohydrates (total grams of carbs minus fiber and the only carbohydrates that impact one’s blood sugar level) daily, with 12 – 15g net carbohydrates coming from a full array of colorful, nutrient-dense vegetables. After the Induction phase is complete, the carbohydrate count is gradually increased until each individual reaches his or her perfect carb balance and goal weight. Additionally, dieters can start during any phase of the Atkins plan depending on their individual weight loss goals. Atkins dieters can even enjoy whole grains and pasta in later phases.
Isn’t Atkins criticized for having too much fat?
Atkins does focus on fat, but a balance of fats that are commonly agreed to be healthy, such as monounsaturated fats like olive oil and avocado. If they wish, individuals can easily avoid almost all saturated fats while on Atkins by following the plan as a vegetarian. Research from more than 80 peer-reviewed independent studies has consistently demonstrated the diet’s safety and efficacy.
Thoughtful Approach. Powerful Science
Science has been at the core of every decision Atkins has ever made. It all started in 1963, when Dr. Robert C. Atkins began to formalize the controlled carbohydrate approach after studying a series of articles published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that supported this theory.
Troubled by the increasing obesity problem among his patients and among the U.S. population, Dr. Atkins found how eating the right foods while limiting refined carbohydrates in one's diet changed a person’s body from a carb-burning to a fat-burning machine. This, in turn, led to successful weight loss and improvements in many weight-related health issues. It was from this revolutionary thinking that the Atkins Nutritional Approach was born.
At Atkins, they continue to educate consumers about the growing body of research on weight loss and weight management. In fact, today, there are over 50 studies that highlight the positive weight loss results and other health benefits associated with following the Atkins Diet. These benefits include weight loss, improvement in risk factors for heart disease, hypertension and diabetes, inflammation, benefits in treating epilepsy and decreasing obesity in children and adolescents.
Another way Atkins has carried on in the tradition of education is through the creation of their Science Advisory Board - a multi-disciplinary collection of nationally known experts in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, physiology and food science from leading universities and institutions in the United States. These men and women are responsible for the oversight of their program as well as the development and formulation of all their products. Atkins' members also conduct and publish additional research on the diet and its principals.
Atkins Science Advisory Board
Atkins Nutritionals has always said it – science is the basis for their nutritional approach and in order to continue to educate people about the growing body of emerging research highlighting the health benefits associated with the principles of the Atkins Nutritional Approach as well as the development of new products, Atkins created a multi-disciplinary Science Advisory Board that includes nationally known experts in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, physiology and food science.
The group advises Atkins on the latest scientific findings and medical studies that investigate the safety, efficacy and nutritional value of the Atkins Nutritional Approach and its products. Each member of the board provides ongoing expert counsel to Atkins as they continue to help people achieve their weight loss and weight management goals.
As part of their work, the board will monitor the growing body of research, now totaling more than 50 studies that highlight the positive weight loss results and other health benefits associated with following the Atkins Diet. These benefits include weight loss, improvement in risk factors for heart disease, hypertension and diabetes, inflammation, benefits in treating epilepsy and decreasing obesity in children and adolescents.
And of course, science extends to their products, whose great taste and nutrition are the result of thorough scientific formulation using the some of the best ingredients on Earth.
