Atkins Diet, now healthier, easier and better

A trio of American doctors, who scrutinised the diet and more than 150 studies of its impact on health and weight loss, have come up with a healthier, easier and more effective version. Instead of insisting on a turgid diet of steak, eggs and yet more steak, dripping in butter (but with a small salad garnish), their New Atkins Diet allows you to enjoy vegetables, berries, potatoes, and even bread, while still losing weight. Better still, they say, the diet works so well that you could shed as much as a stone in the first two weeks. Although many of the basic Atkins' principles remain (protein with every meal, restricted carbohydrates, no sugar) the new diet is more health-conscious than before. The result is you can eat more carbohydrates on new Atkins, increase your intake of healthy foods, and still lose weight. Source: MailOnline
