I am sure that many people are confused by the numerous different diets and in particular we are often asked what is the difference between Atkins and Go Lower and here is a brief summary of what makes us different:-

Firstly we do the work for you by making and delivering the meals to you. There is no weighing or counting required. At GoLower we believe that one of the main contributors to obesity is the continuing alienation between man and food. We are constantly seeing food as a series of numbers whether it is carbs, calories of grams of fat. Therefore one of the key differences is that we stop you thinking in numbers. We help you liberate yourself from the bizarre notion that counting food is either natural or appropriate.  Infact the calculation of Net Carbs in the Atkins Diet makes no sense in the UK due to our packaging legislation. Counting carbs is nutty when you think that there is a clear difference between 10g of carbs in a green bean salade as opposed to 10grams of carbs in a chocolate bar.  The whole idea of measuring food by numbers is completely dated.

Secondly we do not use artificial sweeteners. We know that if you continue to crave sweet things you will find it harder to keep slim once you have achieved your goal. At Go Lower we don’t use splenda or any other sweetener which actually can increase the consumers desire for sweet foods.

Thirdly we do not advocate any artifical ingredients even for weight loss. Go Lower is about quick weight loss and sustainability  and not about quick fix and then weight gain. 

Fouthly we provide real customer support. Not only does this help you if and when you plateau but also ensures long term success through the education of cooking and understanding food and nutrition. Even the Atkins Book cant answer your personal issues and address your personal eating issues which can define your success.

So while there are similarities as we both take you to a state of ketosis there are also a lot of differences.
