I watched a BBC documentary on the Atkins Diet a few days ago. I couldn't decide whether or not to publish the link here. There were moments of "Yes!" and moments of despair. One trusts the BBC to have integrity when they do a documentary but I cannot help believing they have missed a great deal of the scientific research such as that of people like Volek and Phinney, Gary Taubes and more. It seems to me they have ignored the experience of decades of people who have eaten the Atkins way as a long term lifestyle.
I am not advocating Atkins as the only way to lose weight. There was a time when I thought it was the most ridiculous diet out but that was when all the information I had was from newspaper and magazine headlines. I know better now and although I will not recommend it to anyone at this point in my life it is the eating style I am choosing. People must decide what works for them because we are all individual and that certainly comes through in this documentary.
I guess watching a video might whet your appetite but you have to dig deeper if you want the truth.
I am loving the way I eat now and finding it delicious and satisfying. I feel good as you will discover when you read my next post.
