Consumer Reports: Atkins Diet Worst, But None Are Great For Weight Loss

Filed under: Publications — @ May 10, 2007

The June 2007 issue of “Consumer Reports” compares the various diets

Although there is a tremendous amount of evidence coming out of the research community in FAVOR of livin’ la vida low-carb as a viable diet for weight loss and health, that isn’t stopping the great defenders of the status quo from thumbing their nose at programs like the Atkins diet.

That’s exactly what a new Consumer Reports examination of the most popular diets coming next month clearly shows. It was deja vu all over again like I highlighted in 2005 when they proclaimed the Atkins diet as an acceptable “short-term weight loss” program, but then qualifiied it by stating it “might have a negative effect on some dieters’ health.”

It should come as no surprise to anyone that the most famous low-carb diet in the world created by the late great Dr. Robert C. Atkins came in DEAD LAST in this Consumer Reports comparison of the diet.

Discover how the skewed and subjective parameters that were used unfairly prejudiced the Atkins low-carb diet and don’t miss the shocking conclusion by the Consumer Reports editor that pretty much made these arbitrary rankings null and void by clicking here.
