I loved this book, first diet that ever worked for me...it became my bible. However, like all diets, I regained the weight over time when I stopped following it. So I bought the new volume and it was terrible. I hunted down the old one at a second hand book store to use to restart the diet and it worked for me again.

Very similar to original 1972 book and 1992 update. Fleshed out and more emphasis on exercise than book one. The update to 2002 was necessary because there have been major changes in policy with the AMA and others towards low carb diets. Once an anaethma with every doctor and official voice claiming Atkins was bad for your health and with the backing of big sugar and the guide put out by the government and the media on the bandwagon...Dr. Atkins 1972 was demonized except by those of us who had actually lost weight with his help. To have seen him vindicated in the 90's almost felt like vindication for those of us who believed in him way back when. This book adds the information on all the new carb free foods available now.… (mais)

I love this book. It is a life changer. I first picked it up in 2004 after a lifetime of trying every diet under the sun, none of which worked for long and all of which left me hungry. When I turned 50 I decided I would not diet any more and over the next ten years gained a substantial amount of weight. I found this 1972 Atkins books second hand and decided to give it a try...one more time. I was astonished and delighted at how easy it was, how it actually worked, the speed at which I lost weight and the fact that I was never hungry and never craved. I lost quite a bit and then my world crashed and I turned to alcohol which led to sweets, which led to carb loading and just as Dr. Atkins warned would happen, I regained all the weight I lost very rapidly and more. Discouraged and struggling with life I lived a modified, home made type of Atkins but I treated it like a diet not a lifestyle and fell into the calorie counting trap and cheated and lost ground. Then one day I came across the book and decided once more into the breech. I didn't want the 1993 version...I wanted the original 1972 version. I followed it religiously and I lost 70 pounds. Another life crisis and I fell into the same old behaviour but the key is always, do not feel ashamed, pick yourself up, refresh your memory, go back to the basics and start again. So I reread the book that started it all and what is fascinating is remembering all the nay sayers and critics who for 30 years continued to treat Dr. Atkins diet as dangerous and now everyone is on the bandwagon and taking credit for reinventing the wheel. He never lived to see himself so thoroughly vindicated. They even used his death to try to discredit his diet by saying he died fat or that his diet caused his death...both of which were untrue statements but like the Trump misinformation campaign so rampant in the USA today...many people took it as gospel and believed the lie.… (mais)
