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 has been extremely helpful for me to gain control of my health. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to loose weight or has certain health issues like high cholesterol or high blood pressure.

Format: Paperback
I read the 'New Diet Revolution' book in around 2004 and for 6 months or so it really helped me and my health and also helped me lose weight.

The changes in this book include that: lean meat is okay to eat, there are more vegetables on induction, there are 2 paths in phase 4, and there are vegetarian options.

I'm not a fan of the idea that losing a ton of weight per week is healthy, nor that soy products or rice cheese is a health food, or that Splenda or saccharin or protein bars are health foods, and I disagree that 370 - 625 of protein foods a day is NOT a high protein diet! I also don't agree that commercially farmed grain-fed meats and commercial diary products are health foods and found it disappointing that pasture-fed meats etc. weren't talked about in the book.

This book is not as good as the original Atkins book. The focus is more on pushing the exclusive Atkins brand and products than on explaining the science here. It reads a bit like it was written by marketers, trying to twist Atkins a bit to make it fit a wider audience more easily. It lacks the passion of the Atkins books, from the man himself, as well as proper scientific information. It is uninspired and maybe over-simplified and would be in no way as convincing to those who had not read the previous books. It claims to be a whole movement on its own rather than part of one. I'm not sure Dr Atkins would approve of all of the statements in this book.

While the Atkins diet is hands down better than any low-fat or low calorie diet out there, it is not one I would recommend to others any more. I feel there are better ones out there, which take the best of what Atkins has to say and go a bit further with making it a really healthy diet.
