Proponents of the Atkins diet claim that you can lose weight eating as much protein and fat as you want, as long as you avoid foods high in carbs. The Atkins diet was originally promoted by a physician named Dr. Robert C. Atkins, who wrote a best-selling book about the diet in 1972. Since then, the Atkins diet has been popular all over the world and many more books have been written about it. The Atkins diet was originally considered unhealthy and demonized by the mainstream health authorities, mostly due to the high saturated fat content. However, new studies have shown that saturated fat is harmless. Since then, the Atkins diet has been studied thoroughly and shown to lead to more weight loss than low-fat diets, and greater improvements in blood sugar, HDL (the 'good' cholesterol), triglycerides and other health markers.
Remember that healthy lifestyle will let you enjoy your life for years to come! So enjoy Atkins diet.
