protein is good for muscle repair after excerise, but you need carbs for energy

Sounds like you want to go on the atkins diet, which have been proven not to work. You loose muscle mass not fat.

To loose weight very simple, get moderate excerise. Eat whatever you want before 6pm and no food after that. Start there and you will find you will slowly eat less and less. After some time then improve diet before 6pm. Drink plenty of liquids after 6pm to make you feel your stomack is full.

Eating biscuits late at night etc are a no no

Keep away from beer etc as high in sugar

This chap taught me loads:

Some of the meals that he suggests are a bit spartan, but basically he recommends reducing calorie consumption and easing yourself into an exercise programme.

Not necessary really.



OP, if you want to go low carb good food options include quality meat, salmon, nuts, veg, eggs, etc. If you are going to go low-carb, up your fat intake for energy.

Well documented

Dr. Robert Atkins, creator of the high-protein, low-carbohydrate Atkins Diet

Dr. Atkins, when he died, weighed 258 pounds. He was 6 foot tall. With these figures he would be classified as obese.

Atkins diet dont work

Also didn't he retain alot of fluid when he was unconscious, that his weight being admitted was completely different to his postmortum weight.

I'm not a huge fan of atkins but I wouldn't knock it for that reason.

OP buy a good book, there's more to low carb than eschewing bread and potatoes.

I like the Perfect Health diet, as it allows some carbs to keep a lot of variety in the diet and doesn't encourage eating a lot of vegetable oil like atkins though I don't take all the supplements they recommend as it would involve swallowing about 20 pills a day.

Things like fish, chicken and turkey (actual meat that you cook yourself none of that processed crap) With brown rice and whole wheat pasta for your carbs. If you're still finding it hard to get your required amount of protein while keeping your carbs/calories low enough to lose weight then you could look into protein shakes.

Dukan works only if you are really overweight, and it works because it is low carb not high protein.
The only problem with this diet is that is low in fat, which is bad...

It did not work for him and he invented it and wrote a book about it. How can it work

He was 258 pounds when he died, or 117 kgs. Sorry but that excuse cannot explain that amount of weight. If he lost 18 kgs (almost 40 pounds)that would just about make him overweight at 29 BMI. He was way off being proper weight. IN fact his BMI of 34.99 he was nearly in obese class 2.

To loose weight needs life changes, not silly diets. Hence why I said avoid eating late at night. Small changes over time, that way you loose weight nice and slow and keep it off as opposed to some hype diet that dont work. A big change is too hard for people to sustain, thats why little changes is best. When you are easily able to avoid snacking late in evening, then make another small change to your lifestyle. Its all about a lifestyle change
