My respect for Dr. Atkins
, a giant in the healthcare field, who is responsible for moving mountains, is beyond immense.
Prayers go out to his family, and friends. I am so grateful to
for blessing us with his profound insight, passion and perseverance. His path will continue on, to bring health to many.
Dr. Robert C. Atkins
is one of the true major pioneers of modern nutrition. To say he will be missed is an understatement
. Since 1972, Dr. Atkins
has been a force in confronting the dangerous health myth of the high carbohydrate diet pushed by the conventional medical establishment and the U.S. government through their Food Pyramid.
As most of us know, he published his first book, "Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution
," which of course stirred controversy with the medical establishment, but went on to become one of the 50 best-selling books of all time. Dr. Atkins
persisted, and continued to persist, and the rest is history.
