Dr Robert Atkins: The True Story of the Man Behind the War on Carbohydrates (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Only now, after his death, is Dr Robert Atkins being recognised for his groundbreaking work in the field of diet and nutrition. While counting carbohydrates has become an everyday practice for the adherents to a low-carb, high-fat, high-protein plan, Atkins faced a lifetime of adversity from a medical establishment that scoffed at his radical ideas, even though they proved effective. But many questions still remain about the man and his methods: Was he really overweight when he died? Did he suffer from heart disease? Did he really believe everything he wrote, or was he driven by money and fame? And what happened to the Atkins empire after his death? These questions and more are answered in this revealing, fascinating glimpse into the public and private life of a unique and brilliant doctor and promoter who revolutionised the way we think about food.
