Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution

Front Cover
Government Institutes, Sep 1, 2002 - Health & Fitness - 416 pages
This is an updated version of the book I wrote ten years ago to help as many people as I could to lose weight. I felt certain then—and continue to do so—that the widespread dissemination of misinformation about what constitutes a healthy diet had caused that epidemic of weight gain in this country. The book made a greater impact than anyone might have predicted. Its sales exceeded ten million copies, and it was the number oneselling diet and health book in the U.S. for nearly five years. In fact, it has been the all-time top seller in its field. Certainly of the millions of people who’ve read it, a large percentage followed its precepts, lost weight, kept it off and decisively improved their health. What you hold in your hands is a thoroughly rewritten version of that work. Having listened with care to the people who followed my weight control program, I’ve clarified and improved the “do-ability” of the practical chapters of this book. I’ve added many new case histories and a horde of new and improved recipes. Finally, I’ve incorporated information on the recent upsurge of scientific evidence. We had it right ten years ago, but now we have twice as much research to confirm the nutritional approach championed by New Diet Revolution.

This is about controlled carbohydrate nourishment. And getting more exercise is non-negotiable. Eat protein. Dramatic reduction of carbohydrates, sugar, and white flours. He does suggest "boycotting junk foods". [355] Read full review

About the author (2002)

Robert C. Atkins was a world renowned doctor who has helped people lose weight through his own formula of eating certain types of food and exercising. He was the director of the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine and hosted "Health Revelations" on the syndicated radio show " Design for Living." Atkins wrote approximately 40 books, each one describing a form or revelation of the diet he created, such as "Dr. Atkin's New Diet Revolution," his first book and followed by others such as "Dr. Atkins' Superenergy Diet" or Dr. Atkins' Age-Defying Diet." Atkins also had a nationally circulated newsletter and an infomercial. Robert C. Atkins died on April 17, 2003 from head injuries sustained during an accidental fall while on his way to work.
