Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution
Original 1972 Edition

Book Discussion

Most of us that are familiar with the "Atkins Diet" have probably read Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution published in the early nineties, and known as DANDR among low-carbers. However, Dr. Atkins published his original work entitled, "Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution" in 1972. Are there some differences? Even though there aren't major differences there are some and they are worth discussing. One reason it is so interesting is that it was written before the days of all the so called "frankenfoods" or LC versions of high-carb foods.

So, I'll be outlining and summarizing Atkins '72, as we'll call it, chapter by chapter so we can have a thorough discussion. I realize that there is a 'condensed one page summary' of Atkins '72 circulating on the internet and it serves it's purpose, but I want us to be able to discuss this book in depth. It will serve all of us well.

I recently bought my 'used-in-good-condition' copy from Amazon.com, however there are several sources where you should be able to pick up a copy if you would like to have one. One will not be necessary for you to participate in this discussion. Just jump in with your comments and questions and lets learn and have fun.

I'll keep this chapter list updated with hyper-links as I post each summary.

Chapter 4 -- I Promise You That You Will Never Feel a Hunger Pang
Chapter 5 -- If You're Always Fighting Fat, Chances are You're "Allergic" to Carbohydrates
Chapter 6 -- What Causes This Twentieth-Century Plague?
Chapter 7 -- It's a New Energy Diet -- Both Psychological and Physical
Chapter 8 -- To Stay Fat -- Keep On Counting Calories
Chapter 9 -- To Stay Flat -- Start Counting Carbohydrate!
Chapter 10 -- How to Take Your Own Dieting Case History
Chapter 11 -- Before You Start on This Diet
Chapter 12 -- The Revolutionary Never-Hungry No-Limit Steak-And-Salad-Plus Diet
Chapter 13 -- How to Follow the Diet -- Level by Level
Chapter 14 -- Why One Dieter in Ten Gets Stuck Temporarily
Chapter 15 -- Meal Plans & Recipes
Chapter 16 -- Maintenance: Staying at Your Best

Everyone please understand that if you don't have a book, that's perfectly OK. You will still be able to participate just fine since the chapter summaries will be comprehensive enough to give one the heart of the information presented by Dr. Atkins. I really am looking forward to a great discussion on this LC classic!

Hi mo74012 and welcome to the forum !! You don't have to subscribe really - just keep checking back here to see when Ron will set his starting date - if you'd like to see when anyone posts a comment to this thread - you can go to the bottom of the page on the left hand side - I believe it says "subscribe to this thread " - it will send a notification of any new posts to your email .

Welcome once again and glad to have you join in with the discussion too ! 's , Patti
