According to Dr Atkins the diet is good for managing many health disorders including headaches, blood sugar disorders, slow or sluggish metabolism, food intolerances, allergies, and many other health problems. Although the main reason why people turn to Atkins Diet is because it provides fast weight loss, many with high cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes and polycystic ovarian syndrome had reported that they feel more energetic than they have had in years after one week on Atkins Diet.
Dr Atkins suggests that when we reduce our intake of carbohydrates significantly, our body convert from burning carbohydrates to burning fat as fuel. Ketosis is a state in which our body burns fat as fuel. When fat is burned for fuel, ketones are released through the breath and urine, and their quantities can be measured with Ketone Strips. This is how we lose weight through Atkins Diet Plan. Dr Atkins also says that ketosis will affect insulin production which will prevent more fat from being formed.
