Ongoing Weight Loss The Second Phase of Atkins

If you're starting Ongoing Weight Loss (OWL), I know that you've succeeded doing Induction. Congratulations on reaching the first stage of your goal! OWL is where you'll start tailoring Atkins to fit your special tastes; it's what makes Atkins so unique and such a pleasure.

Although more lenient than Induction, OWL will continue to reveal the wonders of dissolving fat. Expect a gradual decrease in the rate at which the pounds and inches disappear-this is a deliberate part of the plan. I have to repeat one caveat: Allowing a few more carbs in at this phase is not a license to return to your old habits of dining on foods full of sugar, white flour and other "junk" carbs. The quality of the carbohydrate foods you eat continues to be as important as the quantity.

Focus on the positive changes you have already begun to enjoy! Now you-not that nameless, food-obsessed demon-are the one in charge of your appetite. And what delicious things you can have on your plate! In all likelihood, the crispy duck in Chinese restaurants or cheese omelettes garnished with thick slices of avocado were among the luxuries you had to do without when you were watching your fat intake. And you're on a nutritional plan that's healthier than any other you've tried before.

But I know that what initially brought you to this book was probably your concern with being overweight. So let's look at the big weight loss picture, and, as the chapter unfolds, you'll understand how OWL is the key to becoming a former fat person.
