About the Author
Robert C. Atkins, M.D., was the founder and medical chair of the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine in New York City. In his more than 40 years of practice, he cared for more than 65,000 patients.
Until a week before his death in April 2003, Dr. Atkins continued to champion the natural healing arts as a safe and effective alternative to pharmaceutical drugs and surgery for many debilitating illnesses. A pioneer in complementary medicine, he stressed the importance of proper diet in concert with nutritional support to prevent and combat heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, all of which have grown to epidemic proportions. In more than thirty years at the Atkins Center, Dr. Atkins and his staff integrated the latest conventional medical techniques with alternative therapies.
Dr. Atkins wrote a number of books that promote controlled carbohydrate nutrition and complementary medical techniques. His original Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution, published in 1972, introduced the Atkins Nutritional Approach. Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution (1992, 1999, 2002) has sold in excess of 15 million copies worldwide, is one of the top 50 bestselling books of all time, and has remained on the New York Times bestseller list for six years. His latest book, Atkins for Life, has sold more than 1.5 million copies and has been on the bestseller list for more than six months.
Dr. and Mrs. Atkins established the Dr. Robert C. Atkins Foundation in 1999. It is dedicated to providing funding for research and education on the role of controlled carbohydrate nutritional protocols in treating and preventing a wide range of diseases and medical conditions.

Prefaceto the 2004 Edition
Atkins Has Become Mainstream
In the seven years since this book was first published, many things have happened. Dr. Atkins, who pioneered the controlled carbohydrate lifestyle, died after a fall in April 2003. But his legacy lives on, growing stronger every day. At the time of his death, Dr. Atkins was finally beginning to see validation of his approach to weight control and overall good health appear in numerous research studies published in prestigious medical journals. In the months that followed, a flood of equally supportive studies has continued to appear - and be reported in the popular press - confirming the efficacy and safety of doing Atkins.
After more than thirty-five years of being considered controversial, the Atkins Nutritional Approach[TM] is moving into its rightful place in the mainstream. The last quarter of the twentieth century was dominated by the low-fat/low-calorie dietary culture - during which, not coincidentally, rates of overweight and obesity ballooned, along with an attendant rise in the incidence of Type 2 diabetes. It appears that in the first decade of thetwenty-first century the tide has turned. More and more individuals are embracing the Atkins controlled carb lifestyle while bidding good-bye to their extra pounds.
The current excitement about Atkins makes it an appropriate time for this completely updated edition of Dr. Atkins' Quick & Easy New Diet Cookbook. This edition includes 50 new recipes to delight your taste buds. Among them are Almond French Toast, Quick-Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, and Mediterranean Vegetable Soup. Many Atkins followers asked for more breakfast options, so we have created a section guaranteed to start your day right. (The names of the new recipes are listed in a different typeface at the beginning of each chapter.) We have reviewed all the recipes, making minor adjustments so they are easier to follow and the results even tastier. You'll also find updated nutritional information, including calories; grams of protein, fat, and fiber; total carbs; and Net Carbs.
Net Carbs are basically the grams of carbs that remain after you subtract the grams of fiber from the total carb count. Although fiber is a form of carbohydrate, it does not impact your blood glucose level the way sugar and most other carbohydrates do. Net Carbs are the only carbs that do affect blood sugar and the only ones you need to count when you do Atkins.
Finally, recipes are now coded to indicate the phases of Atkins for which they are suitable: Induction, Ongoing Weight Loss (OWL), Pre-Maintenance, and Lifetime Maintenance. In general, recipes that are appropriate for Induction contain no more than seven grams of Net Carbs per serving and do not contain fruit, fresh cheese, pasta, grains, starchy vegetables, nuts and seeds or their butters, or legumes. Those recipes that are suitable during OWL contain no more than 10 grams of Net Carbs and can include all cheeses, certain fruits, low carb pasta, and nuts and seeds and their butters. Recipes marked for Pre-Maintenance and Lifetime Maintenance may include previously restricted ingredients.
We believe that these enhancements make this book even more useful while you lose unwanted weight - and as you continue to control your carbs as a permanent lifestyle.

I decided to buy his book after reading the Perfect 10 Diet to get more recipes. Some of the recipes in this book are really easy and delicious. Some of the recipes I could not really use as they were dangerous by suggesting artifical sweetners or protein choices that the Perfect 10 Diet totally prohibited. It is a good book with modifications.
I LOVE this book!! I have it on my NOOK so it's with me most of the time. This is my second time eating the Atkins way, and this time I'm changing my ways for life, because Atkins works for me (and my husband) and THIS BOOK is packed with all the great stuff you need to know to be successful.
I bought this book after reading the earlier addition. There are additional recipes and the overall approach is every bit as good as the original. These recipes are easy to make and allow you to follow the low carb diet with much more variation.
