I've been thinking about trying the Atkins diet, but I wanted to check in here and see if any of you have tried it?

I have some friends who tried it in the past without much success, but it couldn't be as popular as it is unless it worked for SOMEBODY

I've tried it, but not with a ton of success. I lost a few pounds but gave up quickly. I think it comes down to what's right for you. If you like loads of bacon, then give it a shot!

Atkins works great for me. I've been doing it off and on for a few years now. I'm down over 50 pounds over all.

I would love to know if any of my fellow Vegetarians have tried doing Atkins!

Hmm... is it even possible to do vegetarian keto? I guess you could but it would be pretty boring . At least to me. The best part about any ketosis diet, IMHO, is the daily bacon

I am a vegetarian and I asked my doctor if I could still do Atkins. She told me that I would just have to skip the induction phase. Instead you have to start in the OWL phase with 30 grams of net carbs so you can still get protein from seeds and nuts. I haven't decided if that's the way I want to go but I'm seriously considering it. If I do, I promise I'll come back here and tell you how it's going Bowler!

So vegetarians (and I assume vegans) can do a ketosis diet if they skip induction? Very cool info, thanks gabster

My bf lost 23 pounds on Atkins but so far I've only lost 7 in about the same amount of time. We don't always eat the same things and he probably works out a bit more than I do, but is it just easier for guys to lose on Atkins than it is for girls?

Keto for Thanksgiving... this is going to be interesting. Turkey is in obviously. I'm going to do mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes. I might try to thicken a gravy with blended up cauliflower instead of flour so there'll be no carbs. Here's hoping it works! haha
