My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When it comes to diets, many have come and gone, some have worked and others don't, but The Atkins Diet has been around forever. Ok, not actually forever, but it sure seems like it! I can remember being in college and having a doctor recommend it to me because of some medical issues I was having. It has been around and weathered all the fad diets, and it is still here and still going strong, because it works and it works for so many people. It is doctor recommended for people who have blood sugar issues, not diabetics, but insulin resistance and other precursors to diabetes.

This particular book on Atkins Diet Recipes is especially good because of the information and way the book is broken down. First off the author gives you information about the Atkins diet, how it works and why it works for so many people. The diet is broken down into different phases, and the author addresses each phase with information about the phase as well as great recipes to go with that phase. I also like that in each phase the author gives you a list of foods for that phase. This way you know at a glance if you are following the diet or not.

The recipes are top notch! There are recipes for each phase of the diet, and they are all good. They don't feel like diet food, you don't feel restricted or deprived but you get great tasting food that fills you up and helps you to stick with the plan. The Atkins Diet recipes do change some of the things you are used to, but they are good changes in that it helps us to break that addiction to carbs we tend to have.

Over the years, the Atkins diet is the only one that I have found that I can actually lose weight on. So for me, this is something that I always want to have around. My best friend was able to lose over 75 pounds on Atkins and to keep it off for over five years now. In America we are addicted to carbs, especially in the midwest, the farming country, we don't know how to eat without lots of bread and potatoes. Atkins helps you get those carbs out of your diet, but does it in a way that does not make you feel like you are depriving yourself of food. It's a "diet" or lifestyle change that you can live with throughout your life.
