Atkins Nutritionals Wants YOUR Atkins Low-Carb Success Story

Atkins Nutritionals looking for low-carb testimonials

The Atkins Nutritionals web site is in the process of being updated right now and they are looking to add some Atkins weight loss success stories and testimonials to the new and improved site. If you've experienced weight loss, successful weight maintenance or improved health and energy from following the Atkins Nutritional Approach, then they'd love to hear from you. And there's a payoff for those of you who do--you'll win a special Atkins prize if your story is chosen.

What they are looking for is first-person stories about how the Atkins Nutritional Approach, Atkins products and the Atkins community have changed your life. Here are a few questions to consider as you write your story:

- When did you start following the Atkins approach, and over what period of time?
- What inspired you to try the Atkins Diet™?
- Are you still following the Atkins principles? Which phases, principles and aspects of the Atkins Nutritional Approach have proved to be the most practical, helpful and easiest to follow?
- What Atkins products have helped you with your weight loss goals? We want to know if you used Atkins products, which ones you used, and your opinions about our products.
- Did you succeed? What were your keys to success? Did you modify the Atkins plan to suit your own lifestyle and preferences?
- What has changed in your life–for example, if you lost weight, have you maintained your weight loss and how have you benefited from following Atkins?
- What obstacles did you have to deal with while following the Atkins Nutritional Approach, and how do you overcome them?

If you send pictures, these should also depict your personal experience–from before you started on the Atkins Nutritional Approach to your "after" picture, showing where you are now or when you finished your last Atkins phase.

You can e-mail your first-person success story to Be sure to include your name, address, and the best way to contact you (phone and e-mail address). If you have an Atkins weight loss success story, then send clear digital .jpg before and after photos (be sure the pictures do not include other people). When you send in your story, keep in mind you will be contacted by Atkins Nutritionals if they are interested. It may take some time for them to go through the submissions, so be patient.

If your story is chosen, then they will send you a release form to sign. They will not use your story unless you send the signed release form back to them. They will not use anything you send them without your explicit permission and they will not use anything without a signed release form from you.

GOOD LUCK to everyone who shares their Atkins success story! :)

Not sure I'd feel comfortable promoting the bastardization of the Atkins diet that Atkins Nutritionals has become.

THANKS Steve! I also had concerns about Atkins Nutritionals which is why I decided to interview a representative from their company recently for my podcast show. It will air on August 14, 2008 and feature spokeswoman Colette Heimowitz who has some GREAT news to share about the company that will be a welcomed site for low-carbers.

I posted my success story with them, but we'll see if they take me up on it. As part of it, I said I felt most comfortable grocery shopping like Dr. Atkins taught me around the exterior of the store skipping the aisles in search of unprocessed foods. Unless I would use the ingredients in my own cooking, I typically shun from buying my products with it (glycerin).

I look forward to listening to your podcast, Jimmy.

Atkins Nutritionals? Nope....But if Mrs A wants one I'll give it.

I base my diet on many of Dr A's plan....but I won't help them sell their products. I didn't use them, and don't want to be used to promote them.
