After failing on Atkins several times, I'm pleased that it is finally working for me. 15 lbs gone in 2 months and down two jean sizes. With the revised program, it's much more adaptable and workable with my life. Can't imagine going back to my old eating habits now!

I've been using this book for six weeks now and have shed 25 pounds.I bought this book as an E-book first but found it too hard too use the charts. Don't worry about buying this book because it works !!!
N.B. If you join Atkins on line they send you free Meal Bars and the Carb Counting book that they sell on Amazon for free and its up to date, not like the old one they sell here.

This book, along with Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living (Drs Phinney and Volek) have changed both my wife's and my life. Having been a butterball since a baby for most of my life, I have tried many diets and have taken off - and put back on - well over a hundred kilos.

Two years ago, we both realized we had to change our lifestyles in order to achieve lasting results. Although a confirmed carboholic, I decided to give Atkins a try - and haven't looked back since. I've dropped over 20 kg and nearly 25 cm from my waist - and kept them off! Our energy levels are (and were throughout the programme) excellent.

My health is markedly improved - good cholesterol (which was always dismal) is dramatically improved and triglycerides are great. My blood pressure is substantially better and I've been able to eliminate my blood pressure meds.

The low-carb living book explains why (based on extensive research) conventional wisdom is absolutely incorrect - especially misinformation around dietary fats. The book is hard to get and for some reason very expensive in Canada, but very worthwhile reading if you can get it.)

For those who love their carbs (which we did), the diet may seem like a hardship. But it's surprising how the desire for carbs has all but vaporized (OK, so I cheat a couple of times a year and have pizza, but that's OK!)

Format: Paperback
As this is technically a book review as opposed to a diet review I'll keep it brief. The book is well written and very informative of the principles of the Atkins diet. It answered many questions I had related to the diet and why such a foreign concept in eating might work. The book also "sold" me on the diet itself and triggered a strong desire to learn more about ketogenic diets in general.

One issue I did have with the way the book was written was the concept of the 'Atkins Edge'. I intend to re-read the entire book so this may not be a completely valid complaint however it appears the writers are attempting to hijack the term 'ketosis' and rebrand it as "The Atkins Edge". I'm not a fan of any person or company labelling a natural physical process with their brand. If the term is ketosis, call it ketosis. Unless, maybe we can rename all the phases of the process. Let's see here, we can start by following, "The Atkins Diet". This brings us to a state now known as, "The Atkins Edge". And we finish this cycle with, "The Atkins Crap"... rinse and repeat.

Aside from that, not a bad book at all...

This book is informative to read. I bought the digital copy for myself from iTunes, and I bought the paperback for my mother.
It's 3 weeks and I'm down ten pounds; its a great feeling.

I think its important for people to know that this method really works for losing weight. We need to eat healthier proteins and steer ourselves away from simple carbohydrates

The new book is full of a lot of information...I'm ⅔ through it and still have no clue what I should be eating. I'm going to see if I can find my old book and use that
