The New Revamped Atkins Diet

Lose Weight and Feel Great on the New Atkins 2.0 Diet. Hmmm.

The Atkins Diet was the first of its kind that I remember. It reached magazines far and wide in the late '90s, early '00s thanks to tales of Jennifer Aniston and Geri Halliwell successfully kicking the kilos on a diet of steak, steak and um, steak. Long before the size zero debate kicked in, every nutritionist, doctor and skin specialist was jumping in with their two cents on how successful and healthy the diet was for you and your skin. Seemingly not so much with everyone promptly moving onto the Zone Diet, the Blood Type Diet and wheatgrass shots. But now the Atkins is back, bigger and better than ever according to Drs. Eric Westman, Stephen Phinney and Jeff Volek who say that you could see weight loss of 6kg in the first two weeks.

Keep reading . . .So what's changed? Well, you still have to have protein with every meal, zero sugar and limited carbs, but now you're encouraged to tuck into vegies, berries and even bread and potatoes. And instead of all-you-can-eat meat, a limit of 110-150g is recommended for each meal. Interestingly for those who need their caffeine fix, coffee is encouraged and even alcohol is allowed after the two-week mark. All hairdressers, makeup artists and dermatologists that you speak to will stress the importance of a healthy, balanced diet for a clear complexion and healthy hair and of the many fad diets that do the rounds these days, this certainly does seem more balanced. What do you think, reckon it will take off? Does it sound too good to be true? Were you over these types of diets in 1999? Or are you just over diets in general? Do tell . . .

The New Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight and Feeling Great (approx $10.20) is available from Amazon.com
