The Atkins diet has been around for many years. Millions of people have tried it, and many are still using it in some form. Most people who go on this program successfully lose a significant amount of weight, and do so rather quickly. This is because the person consumes virtually no carbohydrates, thereby forcing the body to burn existing, stored fat.

There are, however, several major drawbacks to the diet including constipation, the lack of some essential nutrients, and an excess intake of dietary fat due to the high protein content of the program.

That said, we have now found a way to actually improve the Atkins diet, allowing you to lose even more weight while still following its food program.

How is that possible? Quite simply by addressing the three major concerns of the program that health specialists have been raising.

The first concern is the lack of fiber in the program. Typically, while on the Atkins diet, you have to add fiber. This requires a lot of water, and can sometimes cause bloating issues.

The second concern is the high dietary fat intake called for, a large part of which consists of saturated and trans fats. These are the unhealthiest fats you can eat, and they can lead to high levels of LDL cholesterol and high triglyceride levels.

These two concerns can now be handled by adding one dietary product to your Atkins plan.

There is a new corn fiber that was discovered by two scientists at Wayne State University which does not require very much water consumption. Therefore, this product will add the beneficial fiber to the diet without the bloating. This new corn fiber has another feature that is so unique it has been patented. Each gram (one pill) absorbs 81 calories of dietary fat from your diet! You read that right...81 calories of pure fat are absorbed with each pill. Together, the fat and the fiber make their way through the colon and out of the body. The product is sold under the name Mirafit (in-depth information, including the science behind the product, may be found on their website.) I am not sure what stores around the country are carrying this right now, but the U.S. distributor is Enerex USA, and they will have that information.

With Mirafit absorbing 500 to 600 fat calories a day out of your diet, this really helps to minimize how much fat is actually getting into your system. But guess what else this does? Since you are already burning fat because you do not have carbohydrates with your (Atkins) diet, Mirafit actually restricts the additional 500-600 calories without taking away the satisfaction of eating the foods. It essentially puts you on a more calorie controlled diet.

This can result in an extra five or six pounds of weight loss per month, on top of the weight loss that is generated by the Atkins diet. Consider the science here. If you are maintaining your weight, and then deduct 500 to 600 calories a day from your diet in the form of fat, you will lose about one to one and a half pounds extra per week. Now that is how to improve the Atkins diet!

The last thing that needs to be addressed in improving Atkins is the lack of some essential nutrients that result from initially eliminating all fruits and vegetables from your diet. The solution is the most nutrient-dense greens product available, GREENS Rx Berry.

This product is made on the plateau in Utah where the soil and water are as pure as you will find. The company Herbal Integrity sells it online, but there are dealers for this product around the U.S. Do not accept substitutes. There is nothing equal to this product. Just a tablespoon a day will add an entire day's worth of greens and fruits to your diet. It is at least six times as powerful as the "Juice Plus" products so many are tricked into buying for the same price. GREENS Rx also includes the human strain of probiotics to replenish your good bacteria. This is the strain used in 30,000 hospitals and clinics around the world. It is very powerful.

Although I personally wish everyone would just make better food choices, the Atkins diet can be highly effective. I do not recommend you stay on it long term as digesting all that protein is difficult on your system. But you will definitely lose weight quickly. Once you get to your desired weight, transition from Atkins to a more balanced diet. However, you can continue taking Mirafit, using it as needed to help you maintain your weight, and to help with the occasional "fat food splurges" we all have.

Good Luck!
