The Plan and the Promise

Ever since Dr. Robert Atkins founded the dietary method in the early ‘70s, the Atkins Diet has remained popular because of how it breaks away from conventional methods that most other diets follow.

How It Gained Popularity
The Atkins Diet first came out in 1972 when the late Dr. Atkins, who was once overweight, published a series of books inspired by his own efforts to resolve his weight problems, called Dr. Atkins’ Diet Revolution. He used a research paper that was published in 1958 and entitled “Weight Reduction” that he found from The Journal of the American Medical Association as his primary resource material for coming up with a dietary method that will help him lose weight. After its success, he released another book 30 years later, Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution, in which he had introduced some modifications and additions without altering the original core concepts of the first book.

After having shown how successful the diet was on his own overweight condition, Dr. Atkins’ dietary plan quickly gained a huge following in the USA, particularly in 2003 and 2004, during which as much as around one in eleven Americans was using it. It was during this time that the American market experienced a huge decline in the sales of food products that are discouraged by the Atkins Diet, which was even being blamed for a sudden drop in sales of the famous American donut company, Krispy Kreme. A lot of companies had started to capitalize on the then-becoming famous “low-carb craze” that was attributed to The Atkins’ Diet’s success.

Now, decades after it had first been introduced to the public, and even years after Dr. Atkins’ unfortunate accident that led to a fatal head injury in 2003, the Atkins Diet still remains to be one of the most well-known, trusted and recommended dietary plans in and out of the USA.

While most other diets are more concerned with cutting down and monitoring calorie intake, the Atkins Diet focuses mainly on limiting carbohydrate consumption. The idea behind this revolves around the principle of “ketosis,” which is the process wherein the body shifts its metabolic functions to burning stored body fats instead of burning glucose to supply the body with energy. The body uses either carbohydrates or fats as its source of energy.
