|14 Day Dr Atkins Diet |
What: A high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet created by New
physician Robert Atkins and printed in his latest book, "Dr. Atkins
Diet Revolution" (Avon Books, 1997; $6.50). His earlier diet book,
Atkins Diet Revolution," was published in 1972. The new book comes
companion recipe book written by his Czech-born wife, a former opera
singer. The new book gives dieters more flexibility and offers a wider
choice of foods and recipes.
How: Foods include meat, fish, fowl, eggs, butter, cheese and
weight loss is achieved, the dieter adds unrefined carbohydrates,
non-starchy vegetables and some fruits: potatoes, sweet potatoes,
broccoli, soybeans, tomatoes, corn, popcorn, red wine, berries,
peaches and plums. (Refined carbohydrates such as white sugar and
are to be avoided.) Atkins claims that when carbohydrates are severely
limited, the body burns its own fat; high-protein foods, most of which
contain fat, help stave off hunger.
Percentage of calories per day: During 2 Week Induction Diet:
carbohydrates, 5%; protein, 34%; fat, 60%. On the maintenance diet:
carbohydrates, 12%; protein, 35%; fat, 54%.
Daily caloric intake: Approximately 1,700 calories for women; up
2,300 calories for men.
Exercise: Not necessary, but valuable for toning and
Recommends stretching, resistance and recreational sports. There is also a 14 day starter kit
which includes an 18-panel Guide to the Atkins Nutritional Approach, an explanation of the
four phases, and 4 Supplements.
Pros: Diet is a hit with people who love fatty foods, including
sausage, eggs and butter.
Cons: Critics say it is nutritionally unbalanced; low in
foods. Very restrictive for dieters who enjoy carbohydrates.
I don't recomend Atkins for my clients because I think it is too high in fat and too restrictive of carbohydrates. What I recomend is
