Atkins Diet: Headlines
Carb-Rich Diets Increase Risks of Breast
Carbohydrates have been taking a beating for their putative
effect on the waistline in recent years due to the surge of
low-carb diets such as the Atkins diet.. Now they're coming
under fire for potentially putting women at an increased risk
of breast cancer.
A study of 1,866 Mexican women has found that those who
obtained more than 62 percent of their calories from carbs
were more than twice as likely to develop breast cancer
compared to women whose carb intake accounted for 52 percent
or less of their diet. "The main carbohydrates these women ate

A Calorie Is A Calorie?
Study: All Calories Are Not Created
Equal. Low-Carbohydrate Diets Have Metabolic Edge
Scientists may be close to finding out why low-carb diets, such as the Atkins diet, are more effective than low-calorie diets. In a paper published last week in the Nutrition Journal,
researchers from SUNY Downstate Medical Center show that
low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets can be expected to be
more effective for weight loss than low-fat diets. Their
supposition goes against long standing prejudices of the
nutritional community which for years have claimed that only
calories count in the battle to lose weight."There are
numerous examples of low-carbohydrate diets being more
effective than low-fat diets with the same number of calories. continue...
Dr. Robert C.
Atkins Diet Vindicated
April 17, 2003, A year after science proved him right, Dr.
Robert C. Atkins passes away
Dr. Atkins endured ridicule since the 70's, when he first
published Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution. This lone cardiologist
stood up against the medical establishment by warning us of
the dangers of sugar and carbs. He was called unflattering
names by his peers and brought up before a senate committee,
but nothing deterred him. Thirty years later, he was proven
right. The only consolation to those who love him is that he
passed away having had the last laugh, saying "I told you
so." Paying our respects..

New England Journal of Medicine
NEW ORLEANS (AP) A month after Dr. Robert C.
Atkins' death, his much-ridiculed diet has received its most powerful
scientific support yet: Two studies in one of medicine's most

The research, in Thursday's New England Journal of
Medicine, found that people on the high-protein, high-fat,
low-carbohydrate Atkins diet lose twice as much weight over six months
as those on the standard low-fat diet recommended by most major health

February 13, 2003, New research on Atkins diet
challenges 30 years of nutritional dogma
Is it just possible Dr. Robert Atkins was right?
That his high-fat, low-carb plan, ridiculed for 30 years as dangerous
nonsense, actually is a good, safe way to lose weight? The dietary
elite are not ready to change their collective mind, but a half-dozen
or so new studies have taken an objective look at the presumed evils of
Atkins, , and the results have been little short of astonishing: people
on the Atkins diet lose more... continue...
