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 had a greater impact than anyone might have predicted. Its sales exceeded ten million copies, and it was the number one selling 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".… (mais)

Very similar to original 1972 book and 1992 update. Fleshed out and more emphasis on exercise than book one. The update to 2002 was necessary because there have been major changes in policy with the AMA and others towards low carb diets. Once an anaethma with every doctor and official voice claiming Atkins was bad for your health and with the backing of big sugar and the guide put out by the government and the media on the bandwagon...Dr. Atkins 1972 was demonized except by those of us who had actually lost weight with his help. To have seen him vindicated in the 90's almost felt like vindication for those of us who believed in him way back when. This book adds the information on all the new carb free foods available now.

Radical vegetarians have spread the rumor that Dr. Atkins died fat and afflicted with heart disease. He did have a heart condition,but it was probably of viral origin unrelated to his diet. He was 195 lbs when admitted to the hospital. At 6' that is hardly fat. He died of traumatic brain injury from slipping on ice and striking his head. No amount of vegetables would have saved him unless corn stalks were spread to give traction on the ice. The diet is hard to maintain--but it does not call for only eating meat, or eating as much fat as you want or most of the other things said about it. This is a revision of the original Atkins Diet and reflects changes in scientific research about the value of various kinds of fats. Remember when polyunsaturated was good? ( )

I tried, I ate a lot of meat, I failed and I went back to my couscous and chickpeas and veggies.
The diet was developed in the 40s for uncontrolled diabetics who bodies could not handle any but a minimal amount of carbohydrate. Since carb molecules take on 4 times as much water as protein ones, water weight was lost very fast and then, since proteins are filling because they are digested very slowly, people snack less and true fat is lost, but a huge amount of cholesterol is consumed. It was realised that if you actually stuck to the diet rigidly you would put yourself at risk of heart disease, but when the diet was still current for diabetics, it was realised that without the diet they weren't going to live long enough to get clogged arteries from all that red meat's cholesterol.

The book does not make any of that clear. It is a dangerous book that puts weight loss for vanity (surely not health) above a long and healthy life. It should be noted that when Dr. Atkins died, he was obese and had heart disease himself. ( )

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]

mptpro and keylawk are right.

The rest of the reviewers are wrong.

Case closed. ( )
