August 26, 2010The Atkins diet has been controversial since it was introduced over thirty years ago and remains controversial today. A recent study found that a group of mildly obese patients lost an average of twenty one pounds the first four months on the diet. They also increased their level of HDL, or good cholesterol. However, most nutrition experts are against the diet which strictly reduces carbohydrate intake. The latest research clearly shows that carbohydrates are the principal fuel our bodies use during exercise. Without them we lose the ability to exercise effectively and lose weight in a healthy way. That makes the Atkins diet a double-edged sword that could pose long-term health risks! As always, consult your health care professional before undertaking this or any other dietary regimen.
