was on atkins for a while, lost about 3 kgs in the first two weeks and then nothing.
Unfortunately i couldn't find any atkins products here or in Germany and that's one of the reasons i stopped it, i got really sick of eggs for breakfast everyday and found that even if i had less than 10 carbs a day there was no weight loss. It is also nearly impossible to find iron free multivitamins here and L-carnitine costs about 75 Sf from the apotheke!!!
Ketosticks on the other hand are about 15 Sf and you should be able to find them easily.

I am thinking about going on atkins again and maybe grin and bear it for a bit longer than just 2 weeks but this time will try to go for 0 carbs!!

Good luck anyway:-)

Re: where can you buy atkins products

It does work but I would do a healthy version as i did. Not tons of fried stuff etc Just none of the anti atkins stuff.
I lost about a stone doing it. Didnt buy any Atkins stuff. Be creative. I liked to mash cauliflower and use as a rice/mash suppliment

You can order online and get it sent here

Cheers.
I went on it two years ago and lost 5k.
Had a baby 6 months ago and still have 4k to go before I am what I was before.
So I am hoping it'll work again.

Cheers once again.

Re: where can you buy atkins products

About 4 years ago I did the Southbeach diet (similar to Atkins but less extreme) and went down over 30 kg (from 120 to 87 or something). Since then I bounce up a little (up to 94 or so) but being just plainly naughty (eating a lot), and with retaking the diet I go down again.

Look into the Southbeach, I think it's a good alternative.

No fried stuff. Just keep away from sugars and carbs. I think Atkins diet as some people do it (a friend called it americanized extreme diet - oh, now I can eat all bacon and fried stuff I can, I am going to go crazy over it!) is just plain crazy, dangerous and a waste.

But to the success of this I add three factors, the first one which I highly recommend:
  • Exercise. I di 45 minutes of cycling or running (more walking and jogging as I couldnt jog all the time, following a cycle with a stopwatch, making the walking shorter as I gained stamina). This is something you should do not only to loose weight faster but for health and to feel better, etc.
  • I had medication to help me. Xenical from Roche (was a Roche employee at the time, had blood tests to make sure it was not hurting my liver). Helps a lot loose weight, has some mild (but possible disgusting) side effect, I would recommend stay at home first days using it. Sibutramina (Spanish name) to fend off hunger anxiety and eagerness to eat... I know medication is questionable to many but I feel these helped me much.
  • The hardest for me, just learn to eat less every meal and not eat anything between meals. All junk food (chips, etc) disappeared from my house (we also rather the kids do not have these). My portions are now much smaller than before I did that (hence, maybe, why I have not regained?). No juices, sugar sodas, etc.
  • Weight scale every morning to see my progress, positive feedback is a most.
  • Family/Wife support, big one for me.

An important recommendation (yeah yeah might be obvious) is not to go back to previous habits after the diet - then you'll just bounce back and all the effort is lost. I learned to eat less, more healthy and no stuff between meals, no junk food.

Best of luck!

Nice store! Wish we had sth like this around here. The 40 pounds shipping cost to Switzerland just kills me. Will keep to Migro's Leshop for now... The recipes section of the above site is nice, thanks for the link!

Re: where can you buy atkins products

What do you mean Atkins products... Meat, low carb veg, cheese, eggs, eggs, eggs? Coop and Migros do a good job.

If you learn to do Atkins without expensive substitutes for the long term "no no" foods you will have much more chance of getting to a good ongoing forever daily carb intake that keeps the weight off too.

I have lost 20kg in 2 years on Atkins style eating.

Re: where can you buy atkins products

On the topic of Atkins, has anyone on here identified their favourite low carb tipple?

Atkins is a crucifiction for us Beer Mongers.
