Product Description

Amazon Review

Designed to catapult your body into a state of fat meltdown, Dr Atkins' New Diet Revolution (and the accompanying Dr Atkins' Quick & Easy New Diet Cookbook 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' 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 per cent of Dr Atkins' patients--more than 25,000 of them--have experienced dramatic weight loss. --Karim Nanji, Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I started being interested in the low-carb diet 18 months ago, and finally found this book following a newspaper report of a man who had shed stones on the plan.
I started 5 weeks ago, since when I have lost a stone, and, more importantly (for me) 3.5 inches from my waist! I have been seriously overweight since I was * (I'm 38 now) I promised myself no more diets, but read the book, which made perfect sense to me, then took the plunge..
I must admit, the first 3 days WERE HELL! The nearest thing I have been through was giving up smoking...However, I am losing weight, I eat loads of stuff I used to feel guilty about, and my head is clearer. My skin tone has improved, and I NO LONGER TORTURE MYSELF by starting to eat as late in the day as possible ( before, once I started, it was difficult to stop...constantly hungry and snacking) Writing this, I've just realised that I no longer get the urge to snack!! BIZARRE!
The book is easy-to-read, and Atkins makes more sense than any of the other "experts". Usually on a diet, I become irritable, hungry, constantly think about food, and genuinely struggle to lose weight even when strictly following the diet. Not so with this, and I can't describe how much better I feel....

Having seen a report about this diet on TV a few days before, I received my copy on 14 June 2003 and began the diet the next day - after having read the first 140 pages or so. It seemed strange at first, but all his arguments were clearly laid out and he covered almost all the worries I had about starting a diet which seemed to go against everything I had ever heard or read about nutrition.
I had a pretty balanced diet before - loads of fruit and vegetables and various good quality proteins, plenty of roughage and of course quite a lot of carbohydrates (which I had never really thought about before). I avoided high fat foods and always took the low-calorie/low-fat options.
Within one week I had lost 3.5kg (7.7lb) and had taken 2.5 inches off my waist. At present (about 10 weeks later) I have lost a total of 18kg (almost 40lb), and my waist is down about 9 inches (!!!) I have a further 15kg (33lb) to reach my target weight - the rate of loss has slowed considerably from the beginning, but I continue to lose steadily so I am perfectly content with this. I use the book as a kind of reference tool and consult it very regularly, to keep me on track and to re-assure me on anything I fret about; it is very helpful.
The most marvellous thing about this diet, apart from losing weight and feeling a lot beter than I have in years, is that for almost the first time ever I have control over my appetite - I eat only at mealtimes, never between meals, and have never been hungry from about day two. The first 10 days on the diet were quite difficult (headaches, lethargy, etc.), but since then I feel great with a much clearer mental attitude and much more energy. I wish I had heard about this diet years ago, but I am very grateful to Dr Atkins (RIP) for showing me a much better way to eat.

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.

So many reviewers have focused on the "whether the diet is any good" aspects that I think it might be helpful to add a few notes about the actual BOOK.
From my personal experience, assuming you are interested in a low-carb diet plan I would strongly recommend you read The New High Protein Diet by Charles Clark.
Not that I necessarily suggest you follow his diet instead of Atkins, simply because his British medical background (he is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons at Edinburgh and an acknowledged world expert on the role of insulin) makes his a much better, easier to read and more relevant book for the British market.
One of the problems with Atkins book is that it is extremely long-winded. He simply takes a lot of time (and several pages)to get to even the simplest point. I suspect he is a genuine visionary in the field of weight loss but frankly in my personal opinion he just isn't a great writer and his editor probably holds him in too much esteem to tell him so.
Clarke by contrast makes his point and then moves on with admirable clarity and good English.
As for the actual diet - it's working well for me ;-)
