    Don't LISTEN to detractors!!!

    The Atkins lifestyle works, I lost 80 lbs.!!! My LDL was 2x the normal range and reduced to the normal ranges. HDL went up, liver count remained in the normal range. I have three years of blood work to back up my results. The immediate effects are astonishing. It is a pitty Dr. Atkins passed away.

    Great All- Around Good Eating Habit Suggester

    I wish I had read his works years ago, but I did not because of all of the controversy surrounding him. After lowering my carbs, I felt more energetic and my clarity of thought was better. I always felt okay, but I noticed a difference for the better after trying his low carb diet. As a vegetarian, I had difficulty with his low carb diet such as induction because few foods that are not fish, meat or poultry have low carbs. I went to eating poultry but did not like that. So, I would say (and he does mention this) staying on induction is difficult if you are a vegetarian because to eat under 20 carbs a day is not that easy over a several day or week long period, but anything is possible. However, I was glad to find additional choices through reading his literature--I went to herbal fruit ice teas instead of fruit juices, and stopped eating bread. I used ot eat a lot of french rolls, and pastries like spinach rolls. I had bread with everything--what a disaster. Some of my favorite foods are still okay. I can actually have heavy cream or half and half (such as with iced coffee or hot chocolate) instead of just regular milk. Cheese is okay. So, it is not like the doctor totally puts a damper on one's eating style. He just teaches one to eat more correctly. Some of his vegetarian recipes are quite good. Sometimes, I still eat junk food sweets but not as much and I am trying to cut them out completely because I really feel they serve no purpose at all. I noticed that lowering my carbs reduced my cravings for sweets. I guess he was a great doctor and a very helpful, good soul.

    My family has lost over 160 combined pounds with Dr. Atkins diet. As to the comment above about kidney problems, the book says to get a health check up first, because any undetected kidney problems, or existing kidney problems can be seriously affected. Quite frankly, after watching my dad shed 80 pounds, and my brother losing 50 and me losing ten and on my way to more, I couldn't be more excited.
