What Do I Have to Do to Be On the Atkins Diet

What do I have to do to be on the Atkins diet. [please no shouting]

Well, my boyfriend of four years the one who used to admire me and love me soo much now says.. I am too fat and he doesn't even want to look at me naked anymore. You know it hurts.. I keep trying these stupid quick fixes I feel so gross and ugly I don't even want to leave the house. I just hate myself. He was my eating buddy he would take me out for fast food order pizza. Now I am gross just out of the blue. He doesn't even look at me the same. He doesn't do nice things for me. I pretty much just fend for myself. He treats me like I am a piece of crap. He treats the dog better than me. All my life I have felt self conscience about my weight even when I was dieting and under weight I just felt gross. Now, I have pcos and its harder to lose weight and I gain it so quickly. I am not small I am a size 22

Well first off, i just want to say you should not be treated like that.... Second i dont think the atkins diet is the best diet for many health reasons. Its not healthy to cut out an entire food group. You need carbs to give you energy. Now, you might think about going to a health nutritionist to find out a better diet for you to go on, and also to think of a good exersize routine. If you cant afford to go to a nutritionist, maybe you can try the south beach diet, which is a lot better for you. I would also say you should start goign on walks everyday just so you can get your heart rate up and burn fat and calories. Its important to stay healthy, and you should also stop eating fast food.

I would seriously recommend going to a health food specialist, because they know your physical limits. I am no nutritionist.

I think if you start changing your life style you will start to feel better about yourself.

I would also maybe say you could have a "spa" weekend and just pamper yourself. Everyone deserves "me" time....

Good Luck Smile

p.s. dont let anyone treat you like that.
