In the six years since this book was first published, more and more people have embraced the idea of limiting carbohydrate intake for weight control—as well as overall good health. Numerous scientific studies have corroborated the logic of the Atkins philosophy. Meanwhile, as the twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes have picked up pace, mainstream health professionals are increasingly realizing that achieving a healthy weight is not just a matter of cutting back on fat and calories. There is a growing awareness that sugar, white flour, trans fats and the junk foods made with them are a large part of the problem.
