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.
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.

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 diet helped me lose about 20 pounds but it wasn't a sustainable way of eating for me because I don't like a lot of meats. If you really like beef, pork, and other kinds of meats, then you will probably enjoy this diet.

This book has some good recipes and some good ideas...however, my husband and I have been much more successful using the South Beach diet. (We've lost over 110 pounds between the two of us on South Beach.)
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.
I lost 9 lbs in my 1st week! Unfortunately for me, I don't love meat/eggs so much that I could stick with this diet. For the strong-willed, this book is a must if you want to lose some serious poundage!
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.
Here are some resources:
my mother sent me this book, my family is vegetarian so i have no idea what we would get out of it, but for those meat eaters out there trying to shed a few pounds I understand this is a very popular system
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, do not follow this hype! Instead of following dangerous fads read science-based books such as: 'The PH Miracle' and 'The China Study' and books by Dr.John McDougal. Don't be marketed to; read to understand how your body functions.
