In todays's paper, the article pointed out that Atkins dieters lost more weight than regular dieters and kept off more of that weight in a year than did regular dieters. They then quoted some dietician who said she would never recommend the Atkins diet because people just gain the weight back. She is so prejudiced against Atkins diet that she can't see the point. Most people who go on a diet, any diet, and lose weight will then stop the diet and gain it back. The Atkins dieters gained back less. What people must remember is that a diet only works when you stay on it. As diabetics, we have an advantage - we have to stick with it for life (literally and figuratively).
