The entire focus of the Atkins Diet is to stay away from carbs and sugar. What’s so bad about carbs you may ask? Those unscrupulous carbohydrates develop into the dangerous, disgusting, glucose during the astonishing process of digestion. This fact hit me hard. I do not have a huge sweet tooth, but I definitely over indulged on carbohydrates.
Did you know it is actually bad for your body to eat a low-fat diet? Many advertised “low-fat” products usually do take out grams of fat, but because it will not taste that great, they add sugar. This not only is bad for your body, but you will get hungry faster, and crave food more, and you will consume more calories.
What a high-protein and high-fat foods do is they give you REAL energy, and you actually eat less because you will be satisfied longer.

Fruit and vegetables have natural sugars which are definitely okay, because it is from nature and also those foods contain lots of great necessary fiber. At a weight-watchers meeting years ago, my leader said something really that stuck with me. Someone asked a question about eating too much fruit. After deliberation among the class, the leader cleverly said, “no one got this way by eating too much watermelon”. It’s true, just watch out for added sugars and carbs that are bad for you. Vegetables actually have a lot of carbs, but they are good carbs.
*Tip- when grocery shopping, shop the perimeter of the store. Fruit and vegetables, meat, and dairy. The middle is where all the processes gunk is.
