A question for all you Atkins-diet folks...

  1. Is it still possible to lose weight if you eat ALOT of food?

    That depends on what you call "A LOT of food". :chuckle

    Probably not. But it has been shown that Atkins diets can consume more calories than high carb/low fat dieters and still loose weight.

    The idea is to remain satisfied, but not overeat. Atkins dieters seem to report feeling less hungry than other dieters.

    I did Adkins induction for two weeks last year and was a bit hungry but lost 5 pounds rather quickly, and I felt I was eating quite a bit of food.

    i am still losing weight and i eat probably anywhere from 500-800 calories more on atkins than i did doing low fat. (i try to stay around 1800 cals per day but sometimes 2000 if exercising a lot) i don't count my cals but know that is the general area. i ate around 1200-1400 on low fat and lost but at a much slower clip. the trick is to eat untikl satisfied and not overly full.
