As someone who has been working in the health food industry for the last six years (AND NEXT FRIDAY IS MY LAST DAY...WHOO...WHOO), AND as someone who has done the Atkins diet, Atkins is indeed the devil of all diets.
YES...Most of what is lost is water weight and muscle weight and most people generally gain HALF or more of the weight back IMMEDIATELY after going off the diet when carbs are re-introduced.
YES...It is extraordinarily unhealthy and can cause a spike in cholesterol levels if you go the lazy way--steak, bacon, and hamburger.
YES...The only way to permenantly change weight is by maintaining diet and exercise like Bill Phillips excellent Body For Life plan.
YES...It increases the risk of colon cancer as after about two weeks of meat and cheese, it feels like you are shitting cinder blocks. is based on pseudo-science that sounds good on paper but is terribly damaging in practice.
YES...You are an absolute Maroon if you think you can get away with eating bacon grease and beef jerky and are kidding yourself that it is GOOD FOR YOU!
YES...I know what I am talking about as I have talked to tons of folks who have done the diet or who have researched the effects of the diet.
I even met Robert Atkins once, and I am sorry I didn't pimp slap him.
