What is the Atkins diet?

The original low-carb eating plan emphasizes protein and fats while restricting carbohydrates, particularly those from refined, processed, or starchy sources such as bread, pasta, and baked goods. Plenty of fresh vegetables provide fibre, and in lieu of counting calories, followers track their net carbs (the number you get when you subtract dietary fibre content from total carbohydrates on the nutrition label). Proponents say the tactic slashes weight and keeps it off by balancing blood-sugar levels, reducing hunger, and decreasing fat storage. Developed in the 1960s by cardiologist Robert Atkins, MD, its popularity has remained steady ever since, especially with the recent surge of the ketogenic diet, which forces the body to burn fat instead of carbs. Dana Cohen, MD, an integrative medicine physician in New York City and the author of Quench, worked with Dr. Atkins and shares her favourite Atkins diet foods here.
