Atkins Diet: Headlines

Carb-Rich Diets Increase Risks of Breast Cancer.

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 were ... continue...

    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...

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.. continue

    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 distinguished journals show it really does help people lose weight faster without raising their cholesterol.

    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 organizations. continue...
