The Atkins Diet has been one of the most successful and influential diets in the market. Since its introduction, many food companies even offer low-carb food products to cater to the followers of Atkins. The low-carbohydrate approach to dieting has also paved the way for many other diet books bearing the Atkins brand, as well as several other diet programs that attempt to duplicate the Atkins program.
And with new research findings cropping out about the relation of restriction of carbohydrates and weight loss, Atkins Diet has also been updated through the release of The New Atkins for a New You by Dr Eric Westman.
The book contains over 50 new references that explain why a diet that is low in carbohydrates is effective in weight loss. However, much like the "old" Atkins Diet, it is difficult to stick into the new Atkins diet plan because our body would always crave for carbohydrates. Those who achieved weight loss through Atkins, however, would contend that once the body enters the state of ketosis (or when it is using fat as its energy source), rejecting carbs becomes easier.
The New Atkins for a New You is now available online both in paperback and e-book form.
