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

I am an endomorph, i follow a low carb diet & do a lot of cardio, would i still get to 10% bodyfat if i take a day off & eat junk food 1 day per week?

I am an endomorph, i follow a low carb diet & do a lot of cardio, would i still get to 10% bodyfat if i take a day off & eat junk food 1 day per week?

It's great that you're doing a lot of cardio, but save the big empty-calorie tickets for when you're out with friends and even then, impress them by eating a salad. Ask your physician for guidance. ...Read more
