the new atkins.

When I was a teenager and thought I was fat, I dabbled in the Atkins Diet, and in the 17-year-old world that meant eating chicken wings and bacon daily. Let’s just say, it didn’t work out the way I planned. Colette Heimowitz and her The New Atkins Made Easy, includes a diet that is much healthier than the one 10 years ago, and more realistic. If you don't care to get into all of the scientific information on how Atkins works, this is a great book to just get you started.

The New Atkins Made Easy has lots of delicious recipes, including full meals that require preparation as well as grab and go items. There are shopping lists, and advice on sticking to the diet while traveling. Also, each recipe has basic nutritional information including carb grams, calories, protein grams, etc. showing you that eating low carb actually allows you to eat more calories than a low fat diet. Going low carb does seem to be the best way to lose weight and now that it’s easier to do, why wouldn’t you give it a try?
