Losing weight on Atkins

I look at things from an athletic perspective, and didn't mean it so harshly. His diet was well marketed and likely made a lot of money, but the principles and application of it are flawed.

"Carbs" are not the problem. The unnatural use of them is. The Atkins diet is a product of severely unhealthy modern synthetic foods. The solution is not to ban all carbs, but to not use those modern synthetic foods.

So if one avoids unnatural foods, they will likely improve in health very rapidly. I've looked at my mother's yearbook from the 70's. Fat then is normal now. If after eliminating all the unnatural foods, one needs to further reduce caloric intake, then the next step is portion reduction.

The Atkins diet has no place as a formal diet (there are parts of the world where an Atkins-like diet is a de facto lifestyle, but only because of the environment).
