"Dr Atkins' New Diet Revolution" (2002)


 Summary:

The Four Principles of the Atkins Nutritional Approach
By following the Atkins Nutritional Approach for a lifetime, you will achieve four things:
1. You will lose weight. It's hard not to. Both men and women who follow the Atkins approach to weight loss readily take off pounds and inches. For the small numbers who have a truly hardcore metabolic resistance to weight loss, Chapter 20 will go into detail about how to overcome the barriers that prevent a successful outcome. Optimizing body weight is a valuable element of any health-oriented program because, by and large, being significantly overweight is an indicator of potential health problems, now or in the future. When you've taken the pounds off, you'll see the benefits, and they will be far more than merely cosmetic.
2. You will maintain your weight loss. This is where the Atkins Nutritional Approach leaves most other diets in the dust. Almost every experienced dieter has gone on a diet, worked hard, lost a lot of pounds and gained them all back in a few months or perhaps a year.
This is usually due to the expected consequence of low-fat/low calorie diets-hunger.
Although many people can tolerate hunger for a while, very few can tolerate it for a lifetime. Deprivation is no fun. Once the biological gap between hunger and fulfillment grows too large, the rebound can be amazingly rapid as well as heartbreaking and humiliating. But that's the problem of diets that restrict quantities. The Atkins program refuses to accept hunger as a way of life. The plan includes foods that have enough fat and protein so hunger is not the huge issue it is on other weight loss plans. But it still allows dieters to maintain a healthy weight for a lifetime.
3. You will achieve good health. The change is amazing. Doing Atkins, you meet your nutritional needs by eating delicious, healthy, filling foods and avoiding the sugar and carbs that junk food is loaded with. As a result, you become less tired and more energetic, not merely because of the weight loss, but because the physical consequences of a truly dysfunctional blood sugar and insulin metabolism are reversed. Doing Atkins, people start feeling good even before they reach their goal weight. Once they abandon the catastrophic American diet of refined carbohydrates for whole, unrefined food, they start to live again. It's one of the most rewarding experiences I've had the privilege of witnessing with thousands of my patients.
4. You will lay the permanent groundwork for disease prevention. You will change your life, which, believe it or not, is even more important than looking good on the beach next summer. By following an individualized controlled carbohydrate nutritional approach that results in lower insulin production, people at high risk for chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes will see a marked improvement in their 15 clinical parameters.

 How To Follow "Dr Atkins' New Diet Revolution" (2002):

We must be aware that any feeding method that we use to lose weight, maintain and gain health, must be an integral part of life. Otherwise, you will keep getting called yo-yo.
If the method is followed correctly, and how the book explains, following strictly the rules, you can get very good results, raises good cholesterol, lower bad cholesterol. Multivitamins should be supplemented with low carbs, no sugar, no gluten, making sure the excipients added. It is also highly recommended Omega 3, especially when fish consumption is poor. Take 8 or more cups. Exercise is not negotiable, you should exercise. And do not eat anything, what is not recommended in the lists of foods allowed.


By changing the balance of carbs, fats and protein in your diet, you boost your energy level and keep it on an even keel.

When you eat foods composed primarily of protein, fat and fiber, your body produces far less insulin. And when the carbs you do eat are in the form of high-fiber whole foods, which convert to glucose relatively slowly, your blood sugar level holds steady, along with your energy level. You don’t crave a fast-fix energy booster in the form of sugary, starchy food. And you’re less hungry at meals.
This perfectly normal process of burning primarily fat for energy has a welcome side effect: weight loss.

There’s nothing strange or risky about a primarily fat metabolism. In fact, fat is your body’s back-up energy source. The ability to carry a “fanny pack” of energy in the form of fat actually helped our distant ancestors survive in times of famine and when hunters returned home empty handed.
Just to be clear, eating fats doesn’t make you fat as long as you give your body permission to burn them.

Place the blame where it belongs: overeating and overreacting to carbs. And herein lies the not-so-secret secret of the Atkins Diet and the key to weight loss—and later weight maintenance—without cravings or undue hunger.

Advice: there are two medically important steps and several practical preparations that will lay the groundwork for your success. First, a crucial warning: People with severe kidney disease (creatinine over 2.4) should not do
any phase of Atkins unless ordered to do so by their physician. Also, pregnant women and nursing mothers may do the Lifetime Maintenance phase but should not do any of the weightloss phases of Atkins.

DarkDolphin21's top tips

1.This method is effective, and not how some think, well I always advise reading the book right edition of the book "New Diet Revolution," Dr. Robert C. Atkins Version: 2002 The prologue begins as follows: "This book is an updated version of the book I wrote ten years ago..."
2.We must be aware that any feeding method that we use to lose weight, maintain and gain health, must be an integral part of life. Otherwise, you will keep getting called yo-yo. If the method is followed correctly, and how the book explains, following strictly the rules, you can get very good results, raises good cholesterol, lower bad cholesterol.

Take 8 or more cups. Exercise is not negotiable, you should exercise. And do not eat anything, what is not recommended in the lists of foods allowed.
3.(*Do not allow any oils to reach overly high temperatures when cooking. Use olive oil for sautéing only. Use walnut or sesame oil to dress cooked veggies or salad, but not for cooking)
4.Induction: • Efficiently switch your body from a carbohydrate-burning metabolism to a primarily fatburning (your fat!) metabolism.
5.Carbohydrate includes sugars and starches that are chains of sugar molecules. Although carbohydrate provides the quickest source of energy, we eat much more of it, by far, than our body needs to be healthy. Vegetables do contain some carbohydrates, but they also contain a wide and wondrous variety of vitamins and minerals. However, you can eat plenty of vegetables with high concentrations of beneficial nutrients and still control your carbs. On the other hand, carbohydrates such as those in sugar and white flour contain almost nothing that your body needs in large quantities.

About / History

Based on the Bestseller Book: DR. ATKINS´NEW DIET REVOLUTION (2002)

If you're like many people, you've been through the weight loss wars. Name it and you've
probably tried it, whether it's a low-fat diet, a food-combining diet, the grapefruit diet, liquid
fasts, other fad diets and on and on. You've learned how to count calories, but ultimately with no
success. Even if you lost weight, you were often hungry and always felt deprived. Then when
you went back to your old way of eating, those pounds crept back, often joined by a few more.
If this scenario sounds all too familiar, I have a solution that will help end the game of yo-yo
dieting once and for all. Instead, I'll help you adopt a permanent way of eating that:
• lets you lose weight without counting calories.
• makes you feel and look better.
• naturally re-energizes you.
• keeps lost pounds off forever with a new lifetime nutritional approach that includes rich,
delicious foods.
But in addition to weight loss, there is an even more important benefit: The nutritional
approach you'll learn about here is also a revolutionary method for living a long, healthy life. I
want my readers to say: "I knew I'd lose weight, but I never realized I would feel so much
healthier."
The typical modem American diet-or, as I sometimes call it, the high-sugar horrors-makes you
fat. In the short term, it's also a sure road to daily misery, making you irritable and tired during
the day and sleepless at night. In the long term, it leads grimly on toward heart disease,
hypertension, diabetes and a host of other catastrophes.
What I'm going to show you is not just a way to lose weight, but a way to eat for the rest of
your life so you can be slim and healthy and stay that way. For too many people, the word diet
implies not an approach to eating for a lifetime, but a two-months-on, ten-months-off weight loss
game that they play with themselves-year after year. That is not what this book is about! I
believe this so strongly that from now on I'll speak not of the Atkins Diet, but of the Atkins
Nutritional Approach or "doing Atkins" or even just "Atkins." It's a shorthand that others have
been using, so I'm going to start using it, too.
The Atkins Nutritional Approach will make you healthy because it is different from the typical
American way of eating. Simply put, you avoid the negative consequences of too much
carbohydrate intake, all of which can be attributed to too much insulin release in your body.

Referred by a Doctor. I searched all the information, I bought the book and makes a few years ago I began. I got very good results, but I did not change for lifetime, and I regain all the weight back.
