1. He was a cardiologist who developed this eating plan for his patients.
3. not if you follow it. It does work. And it works well.
4. I have no idea what Canada’s food guide is. I doubt it though. Most government food plans are too high in carbs.
6. The original plan back in the 70s was FOOD. Now it has become more highly marketed with “Atkins” products. This current trend is nasty. The original was good.
9. The only “bad” thing that is universal is constipation. There is also a risk to people who have kidney function issues. The original plan warned against anyone with kidney failure or pregnancy to not do it. You drop weight fast, and any plan that drops weight fast can cause a fatty liver. Gastric bypass does that too. Any fast weight loss can cause fatty liver and will cause hair loss.
10. If you were his patient, yes. As the current marketing plan goes, no. I think the loss of Dr. Atkins greatly changed the plan to it’s detriment.
11. It was a cardiologist’s plan.
12. The original eating plan was a 10+++. Now it is an 8 or so. It is just too highly marketed. And they have switched ideals from using stevia and saccharine to sucralose which is so nasty. Plus they are highly relying on glutens rather than just skipping breads and starches totally.
