What effect can a lactulose have on persons following the Atkins diet plan?

What effect can a lactulose have on persons following the Atkins diet plan?

Lactulose: Lactulose is a milk sugar, the atkins diet, or similar low or no carbohydrate diets recommend against dairy products as they contain fat and sugar. The point of the early portion of the diet is to use a less efficient metabolic pathway that burns fat or protein only. Eating sugars and fats may push you out of the ketotic metabolism into normal metabolism... So you would be thwarting the diet. ...Read more

Can you tell me how could the Atkins diet work?

Can you tell me how could the Atkins diet work?

Ok... it doesn't: First, it mostly has been found to not be different from any other diet (total calories is what matters), but harder to follow and more people bail out. There are several reasons it might work: mostly, if you change diet, you don't have the same cues to eat and you eat less. Other theories have no support.

Has there been evidence of success on Atkins diet and low carb foods?

Quite if........: If you are an "apple" build, with torso weight and high waisted-very good. If low waisted, with more weight on arms and legs-not as good.

Atkins and Fat: The atkins diet is primarily focused on protein and an absence of carbs. Of course, it is good to avoid carbs (especially those with rapid absorption like white bread, white pasta, and sugars). Some people believe that too many fats are allowed on the atkins diet.
