The Atkins Primary Principle for Weight Loss
Both carbohydrate and fat provide fuel for the
bodys energy needs. Carbohydrate is the first fuel to be metabolized. However, when
of digestible carbohydrates is sufficiently restricted (without caloric restriction), the
body converts from the primary metabolic pathway of burning carbohydrate to burning fat as
its main energy source. This
results in weight loss.

first fuel to be metabolized. However, when the intake of digestible carbohydrates is
sufficiently restricted (without caloric restriction), the body converts from the primary
metabolic pathway of burning carbohydrate to burning fat as its main energy source. This
results in weight loss and that is the purpose of the Atkins Diet. When sufficient glucose
from CHO is not available for energy, ketones derived from fat are used as energy. When
you burn CHO for energy you store the excess CHO as fat, however when you burn fat for
energy fat is less likely to be stored. You can consume more calories and lose more weight
on a low carbohydrate Atkins diet than on a low fat diet. Appetite and cravings are
reduced at low levels of carbohydrate consumption. Controlling carbohydrate consumption
has been shown to restrict caloric intake. As the ratio of fat to carbohydrate increases,
the greater the weight loss. Initial fluid loss is the result of 3 parts water being
excreted to every one part CHO being replaced with fat. Additional weight loss results

what foods are acceptable. As a general rule, foods that contain grain or sugar are loaded
with carbohydrates. The bad news is that high carbohydrate foods include bread, pasta,
cereal, candy and pastry. The good news is that low carbohydrate foods include bacon,

Low carb New
The problem in New Zealand is little or no awareness of the carbohydrate content of most
food. I have put together this website for NZers and hope to be able to pool
resources and build up comprehensive information of Low Carb Eating in New Zealand. There
is much published on the Internet about low carb but little that pertains to products
available in NZ. In the US they organise Cruises with total low carb fare, some airlines
have low carb option for food, catering firms do same. Low Carb has implications for
weight loss, diabetes, hypoglycemia, heart, yeast infections and more at the turn of the
century there was little or no processed food and these diseases were unknown. An
interesting fact I discovered is that sugar has no nutritional value.
