For that reason, there are actually four Atkins diets. Diet 1 is the initial Induction diet, which crashes you through most weight loss barriers and will generally introduce even the most metabolically resistant person’s fat retaining body to weight reduction. Diet 2 is Ongoing Weight Loss it will carry you smoothly toward your goal. Diet 3 is Pre Maintenance it begins to teach you the lessons of a style of eating that, with a modest degree of diligence on your part, will keep you slim forever. Diet 4 is the Maintenance diet. Even as you read this, thousands of my old patients and hundreds of thousands of my old readers are practicing this diet so that they’ll never be fat again.
Let me state one crucial fact that you should always keep in mind. On the Atkins diet, failure in maintaining weight loss is almost impossible for the committed.
Fourth: Not only is this diet not austere, it makes you feel good. It’s a high energy diet. It’s a quick and lasting solution to many of the commonest annoyances that patients tell doctors about in the privacy of the consulting room. Fatigue, irritability, depression, trouble concentrating, headaches, insomnia, dizziness, many forms of joint and muscle aches, heartburn, colitis, water retention, premenstrual syndrome, even tobacco addiction. For the lion’s share of patients, a low carbohydrate diet is a specific against these ills. And that’s definitely a factor in keeping the weight off, because few people are willing to go back to feeling lousy once they’ve reexperienced the joys of feeling good.
Fifth: The diet is healthy. I found this out very quickly when I first began to put patients on it twenty five years ago. They began to recover from illnesses that I had no realization I was going to be treating that way. I discovered that most of my patients were suffering from a condition to which I give the name Diet Related Disorder (DRD), a condition which I’ll describe in Chapters 11 to 14, where I discuss hypoglycemia, yeast infections, food allergies in
tolerances, and a number of other conditions.
