This review is from: Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution: The No-hunger, Luxurious Weight Loss Plan That Really Works! (Paperback)
I bought this book in March 2002, with the aim of shifting 16lbs. I too doubted it could work, because I like my food too much. However, I read every page and could see the sense in this eating plan which allowed me as much as I could eat of the right sort of food. All the things you are normally told not to eat ie. bacon, egg, cream and cheese are included in this eating plan. I reached my target weight within 1 month and nearly a year later I still maintain that weight. I have passed the book on to my mother (66yrs) and sister (41yrs) and both succeeded in weight loss and maintainig that weight loss without feeling hungry or tired. That is the key to this inspirational book. You eat plenty and you can still drink alcohol and there are no hunger pangs, no light headedness, no weight gain and most importantly no condescending attitude. I think all those who have tried to shed the pounds should read this book which gives plenty of medical advice as well as recipes and a logical method for weight loss and maintenance that can work. Try it.
