“Good Housekeeping” features a confused “Atkins” dieter

I’m on the Atkins diet. You’re on the Atkins diet. We’re all on the Atkins diet. Or are we?

For some reason or another, people in our culture have started calling livin’ la vida low-carb the “Atkins diet” like most of us call a facial tissue a “Kleenex” or a soda pop a “Coke.” But technically, the “Atkins diet” is a specific plan outlined in the book Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution. Unfortunately, it has morphed into a catch-all for whatever people think a low-carb diet is whether it’s true or not.

As a result, we have ritarded fools like this guy who pretends to think he knows what the real Atkins diet is when he’s never even opened the book. Let’s not forget about this professor who ignorantly claimed the “Atkins diet” has made America fatter. And don’t get me started on what this vegan ridiculously thinks.

With all that said, I wanted to share with you an “Atkins diet” weight loss success story featured in Good Housekeeping magazine this month by a woman named Sheila Anderson. She has lost 30 pounds and kept it off for three years. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

However, as I was reading her story, I became concerned that she had not actually read the book written by the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins, but rather was describing her own generic low-carb diet as the “Atkins diet.” Why do people do that?!

Click here to see exactly what Sheila Anderson said about the “Atkins diet” that is not based on the REAL Atkins diet and why this kind of low-carb dieter is a poor example of the effectiveness of Atkins.
