THE FOUR-PART JUMPSTART PLAN TO A SKINNIER YOU
 
• Your Jumpstart Rules: Thirteen must-follow principles to get you ready for your own “big reveal,” including Rule #1, a precise breakdown of the proper protein/carbohydrate/fat proportions for every meal, and Rule #3, which explains why you need to just say no to complex carbs after breakfast during this three-week plan. These are the Rules that Bob Harper and his celebrity clients use to get ready for their big events—and now you’re in on the secrets, too.
 
• Your Jumpstart Day-by-Day: No decisions, no confusion! Here is the simple, three-week game plan: the food to buy and prepare ahead each week, when and how much to eat each day, and the when and how of your exercise schedule.
 
• Your Jumpstart Moves: Bob’s unique, twenty-minute, at-home exercise routines. From sit-ups, push-ups, and squats to jumping rope, lateral jumps, and simple chair dips, choose one of the seven “packages” of body-toning moves when your day calls for Bob’s “metabolic conditioning.”
 
• Jumpstart Recipes: Cleansing or juice fasting? No way! You need to eat to lose weight, so here are twenty-one days of slimmingly delicious recipes—including “Peanut Butter and Jelly” Oatmeal, Sweet Potato Hash, Spaghetti Squash Bolognese, Buffalo Chicken Salad, and Bob’s signature Shrimp Skimpy—formulated with your Jumpstart protein/carb/fat proportions (see Rule #1!) and calorie maximums in mind.

The Atkins Diet is based on the basic idea that excessive carbohydrate consumption, especially starches and simple sugars can lead to weight gain. Consequently, Dr. Atkins advocated the consumption of excess fats and proteins as well as the daily consumption of nutrients through vitamins and mineral supplements.

This diet also attempts to minimize the production of insulin while inducing the state of ketosis just like other ketogenic diets. Basically, when there is a high amount of glucose in the bloodstream because of excessive consumption of carbohydrate-containing foods, the human body produces insulin that helps to get rid of excess glucose in the bloodstream and then store the same in the muscle tissues and liver as glycogen. It also stores it as fat in adipose tissues (fat cells).

Basically, there are four different phases of the Atkins Diet structured to assist dieters learn healthier ways of achieving the best weight loss results. These phases include:

1. The Induction Phase – Created to help the human body break down its carbohydrate addiction;

2. The Ongoing Weight Loss (OWL) Phase – This is intended to slow down weight loss so as to create the foundation for the management of permanent weight loss;

3. Pre-maintenance Phase – This is where dieters prepare as well as acquaint themselves with the appropriate eating habits required to maintain their desired goal weight; 

4. Lifetime Maintenance Phase – This phase starts once the dieters have achieved their ideal healthy weight loss target.

This Atkins diet overview basically teaches dieters the best strategies to cope with their daily lives. For instance, how to go about eating anywhere like in a restaurant.
