What disturbs me further about T. Colin Campbell is that he has clearly put out a call to his vegan followers to come to the Amazon site and give bad reviews of this book, as he posted this nonsense on his webpage. I don't have a problem with their chosen lifestyle, but I do have a problem with the many deragatory posts that make it clear that they could not have read this book as they have no comprehension of its contents. Shame on them. Using the Amazon review system to grind their vegan axes should not be allowed.
Contrary to their ravings, the Atkins diet recommends lots of vegetables, a conservative amount of dietary protein and good fats. All recommendations that are supported by recent science. Read Gary Taubes "Good Calories, Bad Calories" or the distinquished works of Dr. Mary Enig. T. Colin Campbell has used this review process to further his own agenda and has encouraged his minions to post here. They disparage the book as well as mouth urban legend lies about Dr. Robert Atkins (a cardiologist, BTW). Anyway, read the book and make your own conclusions. Don't be led astray by these agenda-led and untrue attacks. This 65 year old feels 20-30 years younger!!
I am in a situation where I end up eating out a lot. With my other diet, this just made me feel more frustrated. But on this plan, I feel like I can stick with it anywhere. If I'm in a high end place, it's all about the meat/fish and veggies anyway. And if it's a burger joint, I just skip the bun and the fries! The sodium doesn't seem to be an issue, surprisingly.
For breakfast I have been making 2 egg omlettes with frozen veggies and cheese. Lunch is usually tuna or chicken salad on a bunch of greens/veggies. Dinner is some kind of grilled or broiled meet with asparagus etc. (I throw on some rice pilaf etc. for the rest of the family). I went to Whole Foods today and saw the "prepared foods" section with a whole new eye! I didn't even want to stare at the pizza!
One of the things that appealed to me most was that exercise is not a core part of this plan. I have a permanent disabling injury that prevents me from just about anything (beyond WII!). It was refreshing to not feel stigmatized for that.
And I'm even cheating! Shoot me but I really enjoy a glass of wine when I'm done with my day, (or at least my driving). Generally an hour or so before I eat. I've kept that for my sanity the safety of my family. (It's only 4 to 5 carbs!) So I still have around 20 pounds to go. Which no longer sounds so daunting.
Just losing 8 pounds feels great!
I respect other people's right to choose, and right to write more mainstream diet books. And I hope that they will respect that I feel like I finally caught a break here!
A few years later I learned I have celiac disease, meaning my time on Atkins without gluten benefitted me enormously. In the years since 2003 I've learned a lot about my body and what works to fuel it. I am highly carb sensitive, and in addition to not being able to eat gluten, I also do not do well with any other grains, starches, and I have to limit even fruit since I just can't handle much sugar. At my current age it is hard to lose weight, but I've been back on a basic Atkins diet since March 1 and have slowly but surely dropped about 15 pounds and a lot of fat in the middle. I feel wonderful, my blood pressure is down, and I expect my cholesterol to also go down. I am frankly tired of reading all the other competing nutritionists and diet gurus dissing Atkins and I'm fed up with people who don't understand the diet making erroneous assumptions about it and how it works. If I ate the way these people prescribe, I'd be sick and I'd feel horrible all the time. If Atkins is so bad, I'd like these naysayers to explain why I feel so wonderful eating that way! The proof is in the pudding, as they say. While Atkins may not work for everyone, it sure works for me on every single level. I'm committed to eating along the lines of Atkins as a way of life, not as a quick fix diet. Atkins is allowing my body to stabilize and return to its natural state, and Atkins has completely solved all my lifetime digestive issues.
I've enjoyed all the Atkins books over the years. My favorite is the friendly, chatty, very personal and anecdotal 1972 version, but they are all a bit different and offer different bits of information along the way. I found this new version to be quite good and it incorporates much of the newest information to back up the claims. It's valuable to understand the principles behind how this type of diet works and why it works so well, and this edition is informative and very readable. If you have had a very carb heavy diet prior to going into Atkins, there is a period of adjustment where your body reacts to the withdrawal of carbs and switches over to a fat burning type of metabolism. If you know this going into it, be ready to put up with possible headaches and feeling tired for a few days, but your reward will soon come. After the first week, I have never again experienced any fatigue. I have plenty of energy for sports (I ski 50+ times each winter, I mountain bike, I do strenuous weight and cardio workouts 4-5 times a week, and so on). The only time I feel bad is if I eat something not recommended by Atkins. I have learned how my body reacts to such foods, and I don't like it. I much prefer how I feel on Atkins to how I feel eating a different way.
My advice to anyone is this: Buy the book, read it front to back, and give it an honest trial for 2 weeks. The proof will be in how you feel. The weight loss you'll observe is a bonus.
UPDATE 7/19/11. I'm still following Atkins, and at this point I have lost about 25 pounds from my start in 3/10. I have lost 11% fat, going from 40% to 29%. Physically I look entirely different. I look slim and SMALL, and it still amazes me to see this in a mirror. I'm still a few pounds and maybe 5% fat loss from my goal, and need to lose around 10 more pounds. But the important thing is that over the last 16 months I have completely altered my relationship to food, and have adjusted to eating this way for life. This is absolutely key to success: you cannot go back to old eating habits. But for me, I had to realize I could not lose weight as fast as I wanted, and I could not allow myself to be discouraged by that. My loss has been in fits and starts: If I was pretty strict with the diet, I'd lose. When I loosened up a bit I'd maintain, but that was useful because this incremental rate of loss allowed me to establish increasingly lower "set points" for weight. I have had lifelong issues with high blood pressure and high-ish cholesterol. My BP is quite normal now, and while my BP is still around 250 or so, a closer analysis reveals that my HDL is extremely high (part of the reason my total has not gone down), and my LDL particles are off the chart fluffy in nature, which is also good. So I'm no longer worried about either of these measurements. I take no meds, have zero digestive issues any more, zero heartburn, I have tons of energy to ski, bike, exercise. Running on a relatively carb-less metabolism suits me perfectly and I'll never go back. NEW BOOK REC: Two of the authors of this book have just published a new one: The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: An Expert Guide to Making the Life Saving Benefits of Carbohydrate Restriction Sustainable and Enjoyable. I REALLY liked this book, just finished reading it. It is strongly aimed at convincing the doctors of the validity of low carbohydrate eating, and is sometimes a bit technical in nature. But if you are interested in the nuts and bolts of why this works, this book is a nice addition to the Gary Taubes books and will further increase your resolve and comfort in eating this way. [...]
When I gained weight after my first pregnancy I took my mom's and my midwife's advice, "steak and salad, chicken and salad; snack on cheese and berries" and easily lost 30 lbs. After my second pregnancy, I tried weight watchers because it was "healthier"--lost five pounds in 12 weeks, and my skin and hair dried out, my nails peeled, and my menstrual cycle stopped. I was paying to be starving all the time, and my husband who travels for work found it impossible to eat out healthfully on a low fat diet. Our kids, like us, eat carbs to excess when they are available.
So with the new book we are back, very happily, on Atkins. It is so well written. It is less convoluted than the books since Dr Atkins died, and the research seems on the mark. My husband can always get a chicken Caesar salad or a steak or salmon fillet with broccoli or asparagus and some berries for dessert. This is actually what they serve at most business dinners--just skip the bread and potatoes. My kids think that mashed cauliflower tastes as good as potatoes. I easily get 25 grams of fiber a day. I look better, I feel better, I have more energy. Yeah!
The kindle version is not so good--no table of contents and like all recipes in kindle format they are all messed up. That is my only complaint but I'm not going to downgrade my rating because of this.
