New Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight and Feeling Great.

  1. I have hesitated to write a review because I am one of the success stories in this book. However, in light of T. Colin Campbell’s unprofessional attack on this book, I believe I must speak up to share my story and the good health that has resulted in my following the Atkins plan. I am nearly 65 years old and have struggled with weight all my life. I’ve been on many diets including a vegetarian one with little results in either weight loss or improved health. In fact, my health markers were getting worse, and I suffered from arthritis, dry skin and elevated tryglyceride levels. My blood pressure was borderline. Since following the plan outlined in this book, I have lost weight, my arthritis has improved substantially (particularly in my neck and shoulders) and my dry skin (which 2 dermatologists had diagnosed as rosacea) has disappeared. My tryglyceride level dropped remarkably, but more importantly my HDL (the good cholesterol) has gone up and my latest BP was 117/76. I used to wear a size 18 — now I wear a 6 or 8. All of these results came from following the plan outlined in this book.

    What disturbs me further about T. Colin Campbell is that he has clearly put out a call to his vegan followers to come to the Amazon site and give bad reviews of this book, as he posted this nonsense on his webpage. I don’t have a problem with their chosen lifestyle, but I do have a problem with the many deragatory posts that make it clear that they could not have read this book as they have no comprehension of its contents. Shame on them. Using the Amazon review system to grind their vegan axes should not be allowed.

    Contrary to their ravings, the Atkins diet recommends lots of vegetables, a conservative amount of dietary protein and good fats. All recommendations that are supported by recent science. Read Gary Taubes “Good Calories, Bad Calories” or the distinquished works of Dr. Mary Enig. T. Colin Campbell has used this review process to further his own agenda and has encouraged his minions to post here. They disparage the book as well as mouth urban legend lies about Dr. Robert Atkins (a cardiologist, BTW). Anyway, read the book and make your own conclusions. Don’t be led astray by these agenda-led and untrue attacks. This 65 year old feels 20-30 years younger!!

  2. Knows Better says:

    Over the decade that I have been a vegetarian, my weight has ballooned. About two weeks ago a friend who has been an avid Atkins follower told me that I could join her on Atkins. Now that I have read this book I realize why I couldn’t lose weight before. I was eating so many “empty” carbs as bread, cereal, pasta, rice, potatoes, chips, and other snack foods plus lots and lots of fruit that I was never giving my body the chance to burn its own fat. In the two weeks that I have been following the vegetarian version of Atkins, I have already lost 5 pounds. Just as important, my constant hunger has disappeared. It sounds strange but I am actually eating more vegetables than I was before. It’s good to know that I can feel good about what I eat and have my body feel good too.

  3. Bascoloco says:

    A very well explained, scientifically based and flexible nutrition plan which includes vegan, vegetarian and ethnic options. Even if you choose to not follow the plan, you will be left understanding the dangers of a high sugar diet. If you have any questions about the science, I would suggest that you “google” the prestigious authors of this book. I am mortified by the number of reviews by those that have not read the book and have no idea about its contents. I highly suggest that you read this book and judge for yourself.

  4. If you’re overweight or just want a healthier way to live, read the book, do your research and then try it. BUT you have to do it properly and educate yourself.

    The authors of this book have made great strides in bringing the science behind this diet to the general public – they’ve made the science much easier to understand and if you understand the science and what is going on with your body when we eat the way we do, the easier it is going to be.

    The Atkins way of eating is for LIFE, it isn’t just a 4 week diet where you lose some weight then revert back to your old ways.

    A typical day’s eating for me is: b/fast – mixed vegetable omelette; lunch – very large salad with tuna, mayo, avocado; dinner – roast pork, broccoli, mushrooms, sprouts and onions with a chocolate cheesecake with raspberries and cream for dessert. Tea, coffee and water to drink. Not that bad is it?

    btw, vegetarians and vegans can follow Atkins, no problem – I have a family member who is doing great on it.

  5. In my first-look at the brand new “Atkins diet” book from Atkins Nutritionals, I’m happy to say that advocates of a high-fat, moderate-protein, and low-carb nutritional approach will have a lot to cheer about. Unlike the December 2008 release of The All-New Atkins Advantage: The 12-Week Low-Carb Program to Lose Weight, Achieve Peak Fitness and Health, and Maximize Your Willpower to Reach Life Goals by Dr. Stuart Trager and Colette Heimowitz which advocated “lean protein” and lots of vegetables as the basis of the world’s most popular low-carb diet, this new book gets back to the roots of what the good Atkins name is really all about.

    Three of the most well-known and highly-respected researchers of carbohydrate restriction were charged with penning an updated Atkins diet book that would be simpler to follow and completely backed by the latest science. The result of those efforts are culminated in the book release “New Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight Fast and Feeling Great Forever.” Written by the perfect trio of today’s brightest low-carb scholars — Dr. Stephen Phinney from the University of California-Davis, Dr. Jeff Volek from the University of Connecticut, and Dr. Eric Westman from Duke University — it aims to set the record straight about why low-carb works, what you need to do to make it work, adapting it to your busy lifestyle, and then providing the evidence that proves what they say about the Atkins lifestyle is valid.

    This is a book that has been sorely needed on the market ever since the untimely death of the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins in 2003. And the authors acknowledge the forward-thinking that Dr. Atkins possessed so many years ago when he started using his low-carbohydrate plan on patients and they hope to carry on his legacy for many years to come by sharing the amazing research that is now confirming much of what he taught people struggling with weight and health problems. They share a wealth of science in this book through the 50+ references to real scientific data that has been conducted on carbohydrate-restriction in just the past few years. Much of this information may be new to the public since it has not received a lot of attention in the press. But the good thing is they present the information in such a way that the general public will easily understand and implement these dietary changes into their own weight and health regimen.

    Anyone you know who thinks the Atkins low-carb diet is just some passing “fad” that is not backed by any substantive studies needs to know about this book. Even for people who have read the 2002 edition of Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution, Revised Edition this new version contains a whole new way to look at low-carb living like you’ve never seen it before because the authors made it easy-to-understand and instituted subtle improvements to make the plan more effective than any of the other Atkins imitator books that have come along in recent years.

    This new Atkins will shock the naysayers (that is, if they actually READ this one!) when they learn you consume lots of healthy non-starchy veggies on it, can implement some basic strategies for greatly reducing or preventing the common negative symptoms associated with starting low-carb, have a great guide for knowing when to transition from phase to phase of the diet, will find a detailed explanation of making this a permanent weight maintenance plan, have the ability to customize the plan to your specific dietary wants and needs, and that eating low-carb on the go isn’t as impossible as some people think. This really is a new way of looking at healthy low-carb living from a new perspective.

    The contents are broken down into four main parts:

    PART I outlines all the nutritional mechanics of Atkins low-carb eating. The authors help you determine if the Atkins approach is right for you, clearly explain that this program is not meant to completely eliminate carbs, just limit them, identify the various health improvements that one could expect by following the plan, share what the four phases are and why they are important, define the “Atkins Edge” that comes when you put your body into fat-burning mode, give the mechanism behind why food becomes energy and is stored as body fat, reveal the damning role that most carbohydrates play in healthy living and discover the right ones you should be consuming, uncover the unique role of protein in the Atkins diet and give reasons why this plan is not high-protein as is often erroneously claimed, and share the evidence behind why consuming dietary cholesterol and fat, especially saturated fat, should become your diet’s best friend.

    PART II gets into the nitty gritty of the diet by showing you what you are supposed to eat and tailoring it to your specific health goals. The authors help you focus intently on looking at the net carbs of the foods you consume, insure you are getting an adequate amount of protein in your diet daily, understand the amazing benefits of fat when you greatly reduce your carb consumption, learn the benefits of consuming fiber-rich foods like the “Foundation Vegetables” that are essential on the Atkins plan as they always have been, how to keep the added sugar and refined carbohydrate out of your menus, supplement your diet with the appropriate vitamins to obtain optimal health, and find the appropriate level of exercise that will fit within your specific physical fitness capabilities.

    Tools for making yourself successful are also included in this section, including setting goals, finding support, planning meals, making appropriate lifestyle changes, keeping a food log, and participate in online web sites and blogs. They even show how you can make your Atkins diet vegetarian or even vegan if you so choose and even a “Latin Beat” version for the growing Hispanic population dealing with obesity and diabetes. Specifics for following Phase 1 Induction, Phase 2 Ongoing Weight Loss, Phase 3 Pre-Maintenance, and Phase 4 Lifetime Maintenance are also included with more information than you’ve ever seen before about doing it right along with some common pitfalls that may sabotage your efforts along the way. As long as I’ve been studying low-carb over these past six years, never have I seen a book so clearly demonstrate the details of the Atkins way of eating in such a concise manner.

    PART III is dedicated to helping you live the Atkins life in the real world by arming you with ways to make virtually any restaurant into your own personal low-carb restaurant with appropriate substitutions and changes. The authors recognize the necessity that many people have to eat out as part of their job, so they provide an alphabetical listing of restaurants with both the approved “Thumbs Up” choices as well as the “Thumbs Down” selections to avoid. Additionally, various styles of restaurants like Italian, Mexican, Chinese, and more are Atkins-ized just for you! A section of recipes and an extensive set of low-carb meal plans is also included for making various low-carb sauces, flavored oils, salad dressings, marinades and rubs, and broths to complement your Atkins meals.

    PART IV is all about the science that support low-carb living for health. While the media and the so-called health “experts” out there enjoy mocking the low-carb diet as an unhealthy and unbalanced nutritional plan, the authors explain that nothing could be further from the truth. They provide compelling evidence that demonstrates heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hypercholesterolemia, metabolic syndrome, and cancer is improved by low-carb and actually made worse by low-fat diets. The process of how the “fat-storing” hormone insulin works is noted as well as why saturated fat isn’t the great danger that it has been made out to be. The long history of low-carb diets is also revealed to show that this isn’t just some here today, gone tomorrow eating plan — it’s been with us for many generations! Finally, the authors identify diabetes as “the bully disease” and that Atkins is the answer for the millions suffering from it.

    I have only but scratched the surface of what “New Atkins for a New You” contains, but hopefully my review has whet your appetite to pick up a copy for yourself. It would be well worth adding to your low-carb library for people who are concerned about not just weight loss, but radically improving their health for the better long-term. That’s what livin’ la vida low-carb did for me back in 2004 when I not only lost triple-digit weight following these principles, but I’ve seen an extraordinary turnaround in my health that reversed the negative trend that the rest of my family is suffering from, including losing a brother at the age of 41 to morbid obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. You can read more about some of the things I’ve learned about healthy low-carb living in my book 21 Life Lessons From Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb: How The Healthy Low-Carb Lifestyle Changed Everything I Thought I Knew.

    Also, be sure to listen to my March 1, 2010 “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast interview with co-author Dr. Eric Westman about this new version of Atkins at TheLivinLowCarbShow dot com slash shownotes for more information about this incredible new Atkins book that you’re gonna be hearing a lot about in 2010 and beyond. This could be just the beginning of restarting the revolution that the Dr. Atkins himself began nearly four decades ago! Anyone who thinks the Atkins diet is going away anytime soon is delusional. Atkins low-carb living is here to stay and change people’s lives…forever!
