    • Hi DivaMom!

      If you are doing the Atkins diet (which is a high protein diet)- that will explain the sugar cravings! estatic

      problems I gained it plus some back..

    • Aktins diet and other diets that are high protein based will cause weight loss - fast.  It does this by depriving the body of the carbohydrates that our digestive system routinely converts to sugar which is our bodies preferred fuel. When you have no carbs, your body starts to burn protein , then after protein, it will start to burn fat. Plus during the first few days on the diet - your body will lose a lot of water which accounts for the weight loss in the beginning of the diet.

      With this type of diet you will not be able to stay on it very long, you will lose the weight but you will probably will not keep the weight off.  Hence, you will gain the weight back due to we go back to eating the same foods before doing the Aktin’s Diet.

      So - somewhat great for quick weight loss, not good for the long term.
