Comparison of nutrient types in typical American diet and the Atkins diet Atkins Diet

The Atkins Diet, also known as the Atkins Nutritional Approach, is a low-carbohydrate diet promoted by Dr Robert Coleman Atkins (October 17, 1930 – April 17, 2003), an American physician and cardiologist. The diet was inspired by a research article (entitled "Weight Reduction" and published by Alfred W. Pennington in 1958) that Dr Atkins read in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

The diet is based around the idea of limiting consumption of carbohydrates. The is intended to switch the body's metabolism from metabolizing glucose (glycolysis) to metabolizing stored body fat (ketosis). In his earlier writings, Dr Atkins also controversially claimed that low carbohydrate diets provide a metabolic advantage leading to weight loss because "burning fat takes more calories so you expend more calories", however subsequent studies and writings, suggest that weight loss with low carbohydrate diets is more likely to be due to boredom from the monotony of the diet, and/or the longer digestion period for fats and proteins means a delayed onset to hunger.

The Atkins Diet achieved its peak popularity in 2003 and 2004, when approximately 1 in 11 adults in North America claimed to be on a low-carbohydrate diet such as the Atkins Diet. Dr Atkins himself diet as a result of a fall on ice in 2003, and the popularity of the diet began to dip from the second half of 2004. Nevertheless, although not as popular as it once was, the Atkins Diet is still around, and the Atkins Nutritional company continues to operate.

The Atkins Diet has not been without controversy - some members of the scientific community have raised quesitons about its efficacy and safety. Additionally, the evidence showing that the Atkins diet is effective in helping people achieving short-term weight loss is somewhat thing - although one review did show that the Atkins diet did lead to 0.1% to 2.9% more weight loss over one year than that achieved by a control group who received behavioural counselling.
