  • high protein diets

    I'm curious to hear if anyone is or has followed a low carb/hi protein diet. If so, did it affect your bladder in anyway. Meat/chicken and fish are staples on these they increase acidity? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

    Low carb and no carb are two different things, and while I think low carb would be less acidic then no carb, you are still putting yourself into acidosis. There are lots of past posts that i have responded to on here about atkins diet and south beach diet. There are many pros and cons to weigh!

    Good luck...let us know how you do.

      I've been on the Atkins diet for about a year now. I seem to do better on the diet. I got off the diet over the holidays - and nearly did myself in.

      I personally think it's a good thing for your body not to have the sugar, flour, potatoes, etc. I have wondered about the ketosis phase (now that I'm back on the diet I'm going through it again), but it didn't bother me before. It does make your urine and sweat smell different - it's very distinguishable. I never had any harm from it though, and it doesn't seem to be making a difference now. I'm starting to feel better now that I'm back on the diet.

      Another thing is that it helps to not have the weight on me to press in my abdominal area like when I was heavier. I lost 30 pounds in just a few months on Atkins. I lost inches first, then pounds.

      A lot of the recipes in the low carb books use strong spices - I do recommend staying away from them!

      I also have GERD and the Atkins Diet helped me immensely there as well.
