Atkins Diet

What is it?

The Atkins diet focuses on very low carbohydrates, moderate fat and high protein. Because of the lack of carbohydrates, it is believed that the body will begin to burn stored fat for fuel rather than carbs.

This diet focuses on eating whole, nutrient-dense foods rather than high carb, processed foods. Another aspect when following the Atkins diet is that calories do not need to be calculated but rather just limiting carb intake, meaning you can eat the same amount of food but instead in the form of protein and fat.
