I am on the atkins diet and trying to lose 4 stone ASAP?

I am male, 23, and currently doing to Atkins diet.

My usual daily diet consists of –

Breakfast – Couple of slices of bacon
Lunch – Tuna and small amount of Mayo
Dinner – Fresh meat with Veg plus 1 diet coke.

No snacks, drinks lots of water and am exercising everyday. (Boxing, Football, Badminton and walking).

I currently weigh 17.5 stone and believe I need to be closer to 13.5.

Roughly how quickly can I expect to loose this weight on the above info?

    Low carb does not work with low calories. Low calories converts protein to glucose & shuts down the metabolism. You need to be eating MUCH more calories.

    Every day you should be eating these 2 items. If you need additional fat or calories, you can add a tablespoon of virgin coconut oil to the ground flax seed cereal. I highly recommend virgin coconut oil for people needing quick energy – coconut oil is the only fat that is converted to quick energy like a carb.

    Half an avocado mashed with 2 ounces of mayo seasoned with cayenne & eaten with pork rinds or celery.

    Ground flax seed (4 Tbsp) 1/4 cup water, artificial sweetener, mix in a raw egg – let sit 10 min. to absorb liquid, put some cream cheese in the middle & nuke 2 min for daily fiber needs.

    The first 2 weeks when foods are limited you still eat a high fiber diet – just these 4 examples of foods which should be eaten daily during induction, gives you 33.5grams of dietery fiber – well over the RDA of 25g & much higher than the Standard American Diet. After 2 weeks, you are allowed almost all nonstarchy vegs (less than 25g net carbs in week 3)

    21g total carbs – 13g fiber – 8g net carbs – Lettuce, Romaine- 1 head
    12g total carbs – 8g fiber – 4g net carbs – Celery – 4 cups chopped (about 8 stalks)
    6g total carbs – 4.5g fiber – 1.5g net carbs – half an avocado
    8g total carbs – 8g fiber – .5g net carbs – Flaxseed 1 ounce 4T
    ————————————–…
    47g total carbs – 33.5g fiber – 14g net carbs

    You can lose more body fat eating protein & fat (don’t eat protein alone) than not eating AT ALL. To lose weight fast, eat all you want, but nothing but meat, eggs, healthy oils, mayo, butter & half an avocado a day (for added potassium). Keep the calories high & the fat percentage high, at least 65% of calories. Green vegetables & some cheese will continue weight loss but at a slower pace.

    The first 2 weeks eat several cups a day of (mostly) lettuce & celery, cucumbers, radishes, mushrooms, peppers & more variety of vegetables thereafter – add 5 grams per day additional every week (20 grams day first 2 weeks, 25grams 3rd week, 30grams 4th week etc) til you gain weight, then subtract 10grams. That will be your personal carb level (everyone is different & depends on how active you are.)

    Start with meat, fats & salads for 2 weeks and then slowly add in more green veg, wk4 fresh cheeses, wk5 nuts & seeds, wk6 berries, wk7 legumes, wk8 other fruits, wk9 starchy veg, wk10 whole grains. You will learn how your body reacts to different foods.

    The first week is just water weight but fat is lost thereafter if you keep your calories high enough. Otherwise the body will strip it’s own lean tissue for nutrition. Although that may look great on a scale it will make it MUCH easier to accumulate fat in the future (since all that pesky lean tissue burning up calories will be gone). The body won’t release fat stores if you lower calories below what it needs. It will slow metabolism to compensate & store every spare ounce as fat. If you continue lowering calories, it will continue lowering the set point, til it can survive off nothing & store fat on anything. The body will only release it’s fat stores if it knows there is plenty of nutritious food.

    Eating carbs while trying to lose body fat is terribly inefficient. When in glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) you have to lower your calories (which slows your metabolism) & exercise heavily to deplete your glycogen stores before burning body fat.

    The core of Atkins program is converting the body from glycolysis (burning glucose as fuel) to ketosis (burning fat as fuel). Dietary fat levels need to be at >65% of total calories, if not, the body will still remain in glycolysis by converting 58% of excess protein into glucose (via gluconeogenesis).

    It takes about 3 days to convert a body to ketosis, (but only one bite to convert back to glycolysis). People feel sluggish the first week but most feel better than ever thereafter.

    Carbohydrates trigger insulin (the ONLY fat storage hormone). Protein triggers the fat burning hormone glucagon.

    High insulin levels unbalance other hormones. Controlling insulin levels will balance out other hormones & allow human growth hormone (HGH) to be produced naturally so lean muscle will be gained even without exercise.

    As long as you have <9grams carbs per hour, you will maintain insulin control & shouldn't gain weight, no matter the calories because insulin, the fat storage hormone is not activated.

    Good day, a friend told me that she tried diet solution program and resolved all her diet problems. Maybe this can be a solution for you, it really worked for her.

    Good day and good luck
