Default New Atkins Book:The Atkins 100 Eating Solution

Hi all, I just thought I’d give a heads up that a new Atkins book will be published in December titled The Atkins 100 Eating Solution.

Yes, it recommends 100 grams carbs for good health, and although I’m assuming it’s more of a maintenance style of eating, I have been using a similar approach for quite a while now, and losing weight.

The book is described on amazon, and it looks great. I’m a big fan of Colette Heimowitz who wrote previous Atkins books, so this will definitely be my Christmas gift! Just thought I’d share.

100 gm carbs per day?
I would not lose weight on that amount of carbs - I would gain!

Description from the publisher ..
Quote:
From the creators of the original ketogenic, low-carb diet, comes the most accessible and flexible approach to the Atkins diet ever: a simplified lower carb and sugar approach based on solid science.

The latest science continues to support the many health benefits of a low-carb approach to eating, far beyond just weight loss. Simply reducing your carb and sugar intake by two-thirds over the “Standard American Diet” helps avoid the development of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes. While many diet trends can be vague in their approach, The Atkins 100 Eating Solution’s fan-favorite program provides a clear-cut way to control your carb intake with 100 grams of net carbs a day and shows you how to make delicious and satisfying food choices that lessen their impact on your blood sugar. This personalized approach is a way of eating you can follow for life.

With cutting-edge research and delicious recipes—all of which feature fifteen to twenty net carbs—The Atkins 100 Eating Solution provides an exciting and delicious variety of food. You’ll also discover how the plan can be easily modified to fit in with most ways of eating, including vegetarian, Paleo, Mediterranean and more. For the first time ever, you’ll even learn how to modify each recipe for the Atkins 40 and Atkins 20 program. This guide is easy to use regardless of food preferences, lifestyle, or cooking abilities. This book is not about following fads or suffering for results; it is a sustainable, delicious program for everyday wellness.

So it seems this is a plan for maintenance, not weight loss, although there appears to be menu adaptations for lower carb levels.

I wonder how much it differs from Atkins for Life which was penned by Dr. Atkins himself (but not actually published until after his death in 2003) ... Heimowitz was thanked in the acknowledgements for her editorial contribution. That program was also intended for maintenance after weight loss, or for folks not needing to lose weight but looking for a program to maintain good health and prevent chronic illnesses such as diabetes or heart disease. It was similarly set at 100g per day, but provided menu adaptations for 40, 60 and 80g in recognition of the fact that many people need a much lower daily carb level in order to maintain after weight loss.

OTOH, there's been a lot of research validating low-carb/keto diets since Atkins' death. While I doubt this new book will present anything that an experienced low-carber doesn't already know, it could be a useful compendium for someone new to a low-carb WOE.

If I ate 100 net carbs I would not be able to control either my hunger or my weight.

I am slowly losing weight on 100 ( total not net) carbs on the Target 100 Plan. Since eating this way, my hunger has decreased significantly. Only goes to show we are not cookie cutters and we all have to find our own way.
