Default Low-carb, calorie counting, and exercise....


I'm having a good run on losing weight going low-carb, using
http://caloriecount.about.com , and jogging every other day. Since March
7 I'm down about seven pounds.

This is the first time I've tried the calorie counting method in
conjunction with the Atkins Diet. It's working quite well.

Yes, I have to do that too. It does work well.

Consider this often ignored aspect of Atkins:

http://www.atkins.com/articles/atkin...-of-induction/

"5. Adjust the quantity you eat to suit your appetite, especially
as it
decreases. When you're hungry, eat the amount that makes you feel
satisfied, but not stuffed. When you're not hungry, eat a small
controlled
carbohydrate snack to accompany your nutritional supplements."

That bit "especially as it decreases" is about portion control.
Counting
portion sizes is an approximate calorie counting method. Given the
accuracy needed when dieting it doesn't even matter that tracking
portion
sizes is less accurate than counting calories.

Excellent point. Both adherents and critics need this brought to their
attention.

The calorie web site lets you see which low-carb foods have more
calories (Atkins' book talks about carbs only). This lets you make
choices based on both number of carbs and calories.

Same here. I'm losing much more steadily (50 pounds in the last 5
months) since I switched from Atkins to a South Beach type diet where
I'm eating less (calorie-dense) saturated fat, more low-glycemic carbs
and consequently fewer overall calories.

I think that's wonderful Peter, I know I've said it before, but it
bears repeating. :-)

You're just eating fewer calories overall. The amount of fat from
saturated fat has nothing to do with it. Realize also that such items
like steaks contain a great deal of monounsaturated fat. So, to single
out saturated fat instead of all fat or more importantly calories is not
correct. Furthermore, Atkins by definition contains only low-glycemic
carbs. The South Beach diet in no way is better than Atkins in this
regards.

The conclusion: you're eating fewer calories.

Oh yeah, to the extent that your reduction in calories from fat don't
equal the amount of calories you've cut, you're replacing these calories
from something, usually carbs. That might not be bad for some people, but
for those who are insulin resistant, it's not a good idea (low glycemic
carbs are still carbs and still raise blood sugar level).

It's just a matter of time before he gets hungry because of the excess carbs
then goes of the diet altogether and has another stroke.

"off the diet", of course.
