Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution by Robert C. AtkinsI tried, I ate a lot of meat, I failed and I went back to my couscous and chickpeas and veggies.
The diet was developed in the 40s for uncontrolled diabetics who bodies could not handle any but a minimal amount of carbohydrate. Since carb molecules take on 4 times as much water as protein ones, water weight was lost very fast and then, since proteins are filling because they are digested very slowly, people snack less and true fat is lost, but a huge amount of cholesterol is consumed. It was realised that if you actually stuck to the diet rigidly you would put yourself at risk of heart disease, but when the diet was still current for diabetics, it was realised that without the diet they werent going to live long enough to get clogged arteries from all that red meats cholesterol.
The book does not make any of that clear. It is a dangerous book that puts weight loss for vanity (surely not health) above a long and healthy life. It should be noted that when Dr. Atkins died, he was obese and had heart disease himself.

Weight loss is not a new game for me. Then, when I ballooned to sizes that required shopping at a plus-size store, I eventually lost about pounds. And I didn't use any particular diet to do it. But then, slowwwwwly, over the past seven years, almost 30 pounds crept back on. Ten or 15? But 30—unacceptable.
(See the Induction Carb Counter for specifics.) Most Atkins Advantage™ bars and all the shakes are fine in Induction. As we discussed last week, it's important to spend a good deal of time in OWL and to transition through.

The Atkins diet can help you to lose weight very quickly. The induction phase of the diet will typically last at least two weeks and will involve you cutting down your intake of carbohydrates to around 20g a day. This is a dramatic change that is aimed at shifting your body from burning carbs to primarily burning fat. Snacking will help you to fight fatigue, cravings and overeating at mealtimes. When you're in the induction phase of the Atkins diet, you should only eat low-carb snacks that contain fat, protein, and fiber.
