Keep in mind that anyone who take the myths about a certain diet and flips them over to make it look like they are truth may have a vested interest in it. I don't mean, necessarily, monetarily, but maybe she is on it.

Also, unlike Registered Dietcians, Nutritionists don't need to have as much schooling to be able to call themselves experts.

I looked at the blog. I wish the blogger had included links to studies that support her views. But, that said, it's an interesting blog entry and anyone can access the NCBI database at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/

In that database, use the search argument: Atkins Diet

You will find plenty of studies about the success and limitations of any diet in the database. What they all have in common: fewer calories, more weight loss!

I just received an email from the Atkins Website with a link to a blog by one of their nutritionist with an interesting article about Atkins - Facts vs Myths:

blogs.atkins.com/Blogs/colette_heimowitz/A


Just thought someone thinking about Atkins might be interested in reading about their nutrition.

I just tried this link, and it isn't working. Sorry.
