In our experience, men choose to diet for a variety of reasons.
You may be looking to lose weight, build muscle, finally achieve those six-pack abs or simply embark on a healthier lifestyle, but with so many diet options for men out there, how do you know which one is right for you?At New Atkins, we can provide you with a clear, structured plan that will help you achieve your targets. We like to be completely open about the science behind our diet, providing you with all the support you need to enjoy effective, sustainable weight loss.
When considering your diet plan, it is important to clearly define your main motivation before you start. You may be hoping to shed a few pounds in time for the summer holidays or a special occasion such as a wedding, or you may be looking to the long term and making some more long term changes.
Quick weight loss is the goal for many men, but many of the diet plans that promise this are often deeply flawed. For example, by just cutting out calories you are leaving yourself susceptible to hunger pangs that will leave you constantly tempted to snack or eat carb-heavy foods.
New Atkins can offer you the prospect of sustainable, long term weight loss. It may take a little longer, but this will make it easier to combat cravings and make your plan a lifelong change. We feel our programme is one of the best diet plans for men, as it gets your body to burn fat instead of carbs while still allowing you to enjoy the foods you love.
New Atkins is based around reducing your carb intake, not cutting them out completely. You can still enjoy foods such as vegetables and eventually fruits, pulses etc, but by reducing intake of refined or sugary carbs your body burns fat for energy, instead of burning carbs from the food you eat.
The New Atkins plan allows you to eat foods that contain fat, which keeps you feeling fuller and your body will burn the fat you eat, as well as body fat, as a source of energy.
Our site has hundreds of recipes that will help you stick to the plan and continue to enjoy your food. You will see that you can still eat items such as seafood, steak, butter, cheese and even drink alcohol (after the two-week induction period). The only change you will notice is the absence of carb-heavy items such as pasta, rice, bread and sugary foods.
In any effective diet plan, pacing is the key. On the New Atkins plan you tend to see an initial fast weight loss and this will slow to a steady, yet maintainable, pace making it easier to keep the weight off once you’ve lost it.
The final Phase 4 Maintenance stage of your diet is key, and if you follow the plan correctly you will arrive here naturally, cutting out carb-rich foods (except vegetables) at first and then adding back carbs from other sources as you get closer to your target weight. This way, you can continue to eat all the foods you love while maintaining your target weight.
We think that once you have researched New Atkins, you will see it is the best diet for you. By making the most of our plan, you find that your goals are not just achievable, they will occur naturally.
If you are interested in embarking on a diet plan that is suitable for men such as New Atkins, the first thing you should do is calculate your BMI. From here, we will help you get started with your diet, letting you know what foods you can eat and providing recipes incorporating these ingredients.
Don’t forget, if you need support or have questions, our forum provides the welcoming, encouraging environment you need to achieve your aims. You will find plenty of fellow male dieters who will be only too happy to share advice from their journey so far.
