Kelly came home with a copy of Atkins for Life the other night and I’ve started flipping through it. I’ll definitely read it from cover to cover at some point, but it’s written as a reference manual to help configure a lifestyle change to maintain weight that’s already been lost.
It is possible to start the Atkins Diet using this book, however the information is presented in such a way that makes it difficult. In order to take full advantage of the Atkins Diet it’s recommended that you purchase New Diet Revolution as well. Since I had a borrowed copy, I’ll be picking up Dr. Atkins’ Three-Book Package which includes New Diet Revolution, New Diet Cookbook and New Carbohydrate Gram Counter.
