Atkins Diet Successes Ignored By Health ‘Experts’

Jimmy Moore documented his Atkins diet experience in a book

With all the attention being paid to the Atkins diet today following the release of this major study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, I have to admit I am personally disturbed by what I have witnessed as an antagonistic demeanor amongst the health elites responding to the healthy low-carb nutritional approach.

As I noted in this blog post regarding a teleconference call debate between Dr. Michael Dansinger and Dr. James Hill that took place on Tuesday night (transcript and audio are forthcoming), the spin coming from the low-fat diet supporters on this new positive Atkins diet study is this: sure, you can lose weight following the Atkins, low-carb diet, but the impact is only for the short-term–there is no evidence that anyone can possibly stay on a diet like this beyond one year.

Say what?!

In response to that ridiculous claim, I only have to look in my own mirror to know that assessment is about as far away from the truth as it can possibly be. Why? Because I lost 180 pounds in one year on the Atkins diet three years ago. Yep, that’s me–Jimmy Moore–and I am all too happy to share my low-carb weight loss success since these so-called health “experts” choose to ignore people like me.
