To readers of celebrity and/or health and beauty magazines, Dr
Atkins and his low-carbohydrate diet are as familiar as Audrey
Eyton and her low-fat F-Plan diet were in the early 1990s. The main
difference between them is that nutritionists were able to endorse
the F-plan, with its emphasis on vegetables and fibre, as a healthy
way of eating regardless of whether weight loss was the desired
objective, whereas the official health view seems to be more
ambivalent about the benefits of Dr Atkins's so-called New Diet
Revolution, with its high-fat, high-protein, low-carbohydrate
regime, and its assertion that it is better to cook with cream than
with skimmed milk. That said, anything that helps to ameliorate the
effects of the obesity epidemic sweeping the West certainly has to
be a good thing, and Atkins is not short of celebrities queueing up
to endorse his system, which offers sumptuous food of a quality
that probably means the dieter is more likely to stick to the
regime. His wife, Veronica, provides the low-carbohydrate recipes
you will find here, all easily prepared in 30 minutes or less and
all of which, it must be said, sound delicious and unlike any diet
food you will ever have tried before. Imagine a dinner of artichoke
hearts wrapped in bacon, followed by pork tenderloin medallions
with soured cream and dill, with a dessert of chocolate butter
cream, or baked goat's cheese and ricotta custards followed by
steak au poivre and zabaglione, and you can see how people are
attracted to the idea of this no-deprivation diet. Atkins runs
through some of the principles behind his carbohydrate-free regime
at the beginning of the book, but to understand properly the
principles behind it one would probably have to read this in tandem
with the two earlier books. There is no denying, however, that most
of the recipes sound quite delicious and simple, and if this diet
works for you, then that can only be a good thing. (Kirkus UK)
