|Why is the Atkins Diet Not Working this Time?|
Most of the comments or emails I get come from people not new to low carb. They've previously been on Atkins or some other form of low-carb diet and returned to carbohydrate restriction because it worked so well for them. Perhaps you feel the same way.
Your expectations are high.
You strongly believe that the diet should work as rapidly and easily as before. However, that isn't happening. You're frustrated because you aren't losing weight. Maybe you're struggling to cope because you have only dropped a pound or two all month. Perhaps, you're exercising, but your weight keeps bouncing rather than going down.
You're upset. Didn't Dr. Atkins promise that if you gave up the carbs losing weight would be easy? Didn't he promise you that a low-carb diet would change your life once and for all?
Yes, he did.
The Atkins Diet claims to be the most effective diet out there, so what's going on? Why is the Atkins Diet not working this time?
