Read this book through and practiced the ideas. I lost 10 pounds the first two weeks. And I only needed to lose 30 anyway!
The plan is easy to follow and gives specific details to accomplish your goals. Lots of recipes and advice. If you stick with the eating plan, you will lose weight.
I always turn back to this way of eating post-holidays or whenever I need to get the sugar out for a while. I always refer to it for motivation and to get a reminder of how sugar and over processed, simple carbs can really harm you.
Designed to catapult your body into a state of fat meltdown, Dr. Atkins's diet has taken America by storm. It targets insulin, the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels. The bodies of most overeaters are continually in a state of hyperinsulinism; their bodies are so adept at releasing insulin to help convert excess carbohydrates to fat that there's always too much of the hormone circulating through the body. This puts the body into a bind; it always wants to store fat. Even when people with hyperinsulinism try to lose weight--especially when they cut fat but increase carbohydrate consumption--their efforts will fail. This is why Dr. Atkins refers to insulin as "the fat-producing hormone."
Dr. Atkins's diet is extremely low in carbohydrates, which helps to regulate insulin production and decrease circulating insulin; less insulin soon results in less fat storage and fewer food cravings. The diet is far from torturous, though--those who've tried it attest that hunger is not a part of this plan. Ninety percent of Dr. Atkins's patients--more than 25,000 of them--have experienced dramatic weight loss. The book includes recipes for such luscious, low-carb dishes as lobster soup, zabaglione, sea bass, and blueberry ice cream, and even includes a carbohydrate gram counter and menus.
This book has the detailed premise behind the low-carb Atkins diet, as well as some recipes and ideas for doing the diet. It is a bit complicated of a read in the first several chapters, but it does a great job of explaining *why* the low-carb diet will help a sedentary person lose weight and *how* to do it the Atkins way. I recommend this for those looking for information about the Atkins diet in particular, or low-carb diets in general.
