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.

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.

This is a very easy read. It helped me lose 17 pounds for my wedding.
I was on the diet for a month and it really works.
My opinion though, is not to stay on this diet for a long period of time.

Looking back now, this diet is very unhealthy for you. It deprives you of
fruits and limits your carb intake to 20 net carbs daily.

Atkins really does a great job explaining the Low-Carb way of life and why it has its merit. Unfortunately for him, it is only posthumously that his diet revolution has truly taken place. Nonetheless, this is a good book with lots of good recipes! And contrary to what most think, Atkins is not just about all the eggs, bacon, cheese and butter you can eat.

Dr. Atkins' method is one that has worked for many people. A Duke University study indicated that low-carb dieting was more effective than traditional low-fat diets at helping people lose weight and keep it off. This method is the only one that has worked for me. Yes, you get tired of meat and eggs, but the weight will come off if you stick with it. There are lots of really good recipes in the book, too.

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.

Dr. Atkins' died because of his eating habits. All of Dr. Atkin's books should be tossed into the recycle bin. The only was to peek health and permanent weight loss is to eat a plant-based diet free of processed foods. It's really just that simple.

Have I read this book? No. What I have read are dozens of reviews by other Doctor's on how DANGEROUS this diet is.

The more research that's available shows how dangerous the large consumption of animal products are to your health. Cancer rates soars in countries that adopt our Western diet high in fat and animal protein.

Take this book out from the library, but compare it to others in its field. Also read books by Dr. McDougall, Dr. Dean Ornish, and Dr. Joel Furhman to name a few.
