It works and you'll feel good
on 14 December 2003
Atkins gets a lot of bad press, but when all is said and done his diet really works, and it works really fast. Atkins explains why he thinks it works, and his theory sounds plausable. But who cares, it works.
I suffered from a lot of stress, or hypertension before this diet. That has all gone, I no longer get sugar cravings, (i.e. shivering for no reason), mood swings, sudden hunger or faintness. And I got all this when I was not on a diet.
Now that I am doing Atkins (not all that strictly), I feel fantastic. Do not believe the bad press this book gets. This guy gets screwed because of his induction phase. But even he admits that induction is not healthy for long term, and he does not recommend this as a lifetime change, just a short kick start to a fat burning mechamnism.
I almost forgot to mention, I did get this book to lose weight, and I did. Its just that the other benefits I got seem to far outweigh the actual weight loss.
Don't be tempted to get info on Atkins from the Internet, there is enough rubbish on this guy out there. Read from the source.
Get this book if you want to diet, get this book if you do not feel 100% and you suspect diet (I mean an eating plan) could help.
