Atkins Diet also known as the Atkins Nutritional Approach was formulated by Doctor Robert
Atkins in 1972 when he published first of a series of books starting with Dr. Atkins’ Diet
Revolution. Dr Atkins, struggling with his own weight problem at that time, based his book on a
scientific research paper he came across titled Weight Reduction. The Atkins Diet is therefore
based on science of foods and their effect on weight gain and weight loss in individuals.
Although the original concepts of the Atkins Diet has not changed, in subsequent books by Dr.
Atkins and his associates, the diet has been altered to incorporate the latest knowledge that is
available on nutrition and dieting.
