About this item
Although the late Dr. Atkins started it all in the 1970s, the low-carbohydrate, high protein diet revolution didn't truly take off until the late 1990s and early '00s, by which time, other low-carb diets had gained popularity. This 2010 book reclaims Atkins's legacy by making the strict eating regimen a bit easier to follow. A larger variety of foods are allowed in the difficult "induction" phase, which makes it more likely for people to succeed to the next phases. There is also a section called "Atkins in the Real World" that gives useful advice for low-carbing in restaurants. Interviews with people who have successfully maintained their weight through the Atkins program provide additional inspiration.
The classic Atkins Diet gets a 21st century makeover--now more flexible, more effective, and easier to maintain than ever before.
