Hi I'm currently doing SW but struggling Im a big meat eater and wondered if any of you would mind sharing your experiences of this diet and whether you struggle with it or not, and if you find you get hungry? Thanks x
I love it! I'm a bit hungry sometimes but then I'm not following Atkins strictly like some on here are. I'm just low-carbing. I do really love the "diet" and I feel 100 times better for cutting the carbs out.
I look at bread/rice/pasta etc now and I feel a bit sick! I just can't imagine putting that in my mouth now and that's a big thing for me to say, as I used to LOVE them!
My weight loss hasn't been great in the last 2 weeks but then, as I said, i'm not following Atkins. However, I do feel fantastic (apart from today as I feel a bit poorly) but I feel slimmer, i'm not so sluggish, more energy. It's just brill.
I used to do SW as well, and quite liked it to be fair. You needn't be hungry on SW ever and it does prompt you to eat healthy *But* it is also quite easy to eat loads of carbs on it. Esp on a green day and I love my rice and pasta, etc. I found however that even while eating healthy and losing weight (and I run regularly and do strenghtening classes) that I was running out of energy.
I know that I am sensitive to carbs, and that bread makes my IBS act up, so I decided to try Atkins and see how I got on.
Now I am just an atkins newbie, so I can't give advice on it other than to say that I am not hungry, and find that I forget to eat sometimes as well as a result.
I thought with all the fat I would be eating loads of calories, but I find I eat much less than on SW (not that atkins counts calories at all, I just noticed it on FitDay). If you do SW it will be hard to get your head around Atkins at first, but I am already loving it!
i was doing slmming world and could only do green days as never lost anything if i did red which is meat strange really as now all i eat is meat and veg and lose weight which is great .id say give it a go you will lose weight without the effort
