Atkins Diet

I'm reading Dr. Robert C. Atkins' diet book, Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, Revised Edition. It's less a diet book, as he explains, and more a new way of eating. The induction phase involves not eating any carbohydrates except 20 grams per day. After that you can increase your amount. The purpose of restricting carbohydrates is to lower insulin fluctuations and get you ready to face a higher level of energy and vitality through fat metabolism. So far I have found the book wonderful, easy to read, and highly motivating.
