Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Dr. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Gram Counter has a slightly misleading name. While grams of carbohydrate are listed for various foods, there are also protein and fat grams listed for each entry. With more than 1,200 listings, including hundreds of brand-name products, this makes a handy, portable reference. It should be noted, however, that that the Gram Counter is really meant as a companion to Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution; the brief dietary information included in the introduction to the Gram Counter isn't of much use by itself.

From Publishers Weekly

This small-format companion book to Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution offers people a pocketsize guide to any of the four phases of the Atkins plan. Organized into food categories such as "Poultry" and "Beverages," the book gives the amount of carbs, net carbs, fiber, protein, fat and calorie counts for each item. Both generic and brand name foods are included. For example, there are nine listings for different types of roasted chicken and there are even more listings for frozen, skillet and potpies, including Banquet, Morton and Purdue. The dessert section has been expanded from earlier editions to include a range of ice cream and sorbet products, cakes and cookies, as well as snacks such as chips and peanuts. Newer products such as terra chips and soy crisps are included. Sufficient explanatory material is found in the "dining out" chapters, which cover both restaurants and fast food chains. Atkins also offers pointers such as "Don't torture yourself if you accidentally consume something that's been batter dipped or breaded. Remember it's only one meal."

Don't get me wrong: I LOVE the diet.

This book will not teach you how to do the Atkins diet - for that, read Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution.

I started the Atkins diet on my own, based on the guiding principles described on the book "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution". I have steadily and comfortably reduced inches off my waist by using the "Dr. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Gram Counter" as a guide to food selection. If it were not for its reduced, concise listing of foods (carbs, proteins, fat) I could not have understood the method I was supposed to follow to achieve weight loss. It is not a comprehensive guide, so don't even think of it as the ultimate compilation of your diet choices. Yet, its tiny size made it perfect to carry it in a handbag, in a glove compartment, every time I need help to navigate through the supermarket maze in search for low-carb foods, and yes, to elegantly cover my tracks when I cheated the diet.

I purchased two carb counter books and found the other, more extensive book to be difficult to use. This simple, little book contains most ingredients used in recipes. It is a great tool in helping to create good meals while keeping within the limits of the Atkins Diet.

If you've started the Atkins diet, or at least read the diet book, then you already realize the importance of counting the carbohydrate grams you consume. Please allow me to clear up some FAQ's:
1. This book will not teach you how to do the Atkins diet - for that, read Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution.
2. This book will show you total carbohydrate, fat, and protein gram counts for standard portion sizes of general or common foods. For instance, there is a general listing for "fig" but not "Kadota fig" or "Mission". If you are into more exotic fare than the standard American foods listed - say for instance that you like obscure asian fruits like or you're a oeniphile who is interested in the carb count of 60 different varieties of French wine- then you will have to do research for the carbs in your special interest on your own.
3. This book will not make specific recommendations as to which ones to avoid, eat more of, etc. - that's not its job. Instead, you are allowed to make those decisions for yourself based on the information presented and your individual allowance of daily carbs.
4. This book does not list calories because the Atkins diet is qualitative, not quantitative.
5. This book will, however, be a quick on-the-spot reference guide for Atkins dieters. It is designed to be portable and easy to understand at a glance when you need information in a hurry.
Are there any flaws? Yes. For one thing, IMHO, the price could come down a bit considering that this book is a very small, almost the size of those supermarket pocket books at the checkout counter that cost only 99 cents or so. Also, it would have been helpful if Dr. Atkins had included the fiber content along with the fats, carbs and protein so that one could calculate total impact carb grams and make more educated decisions. Still, I believe this is the best carb gram counter out there for low-carb dieting purposes. I find myself consulting it quite often.

It is astonishing to read the slam pieces here about Dr. Atkins so-called obesity and overweight condition at the time of his death. Here are the facts:
* He previously had a heart condition called cardiomyopathy -- a serious disease of the heart muscle which is unrelated to diet.
* He died of a head injury because of an accident falling on slippery ice and not of being overweight.
* His actual weight was 200 pounds when he was admitted to the hospital at the time of his accident. The erroneous reports of him weight 258 lbs was based on his weight at the time of his death. The extra weight was not fat, but an accumulation of body fluids linked to organ failure during his coma.
* His previous reported heart attack was due to a viral infection and not diet related. He spoke openly of his condition on various national news programs.
* The report that was released about him being overweight was leaked to the press by a group named "Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine", which is an ardent opponent of the Atkins diet. In short, they distorted his weight by reporting the weight at the time of death - 258 lbs, and not at the time of his admittance - 200 lbs...an obvious attempt to discredit and distort the facts surrounding Dr. Atkins death.
* A formal complaint has been filed by the Medical Examiner of New York regarding the suspicious leak of this information to the public by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine."
* The disinformation surrounding Dr.Atkins untimely death is politically driven by the AMA and other detractors of the diet.
Dr. Atkins book, New Diet Revolution has turned the AMA and other nutritional views upside down and has created a furor over the standard edicts of the medical profession.

Despite complaints that the book is small, I found that it was very helpful to be able to carry the book with me and refer to it whenever needed. A 500-page tome would be a little bothersome when sitting at a table in a restaurant...I would definitely recommend this book as a companion to the "New Diet Revolution" book, and strongly urge anyone thinking about starting the Induction Diet for the first time to purchase the "New Carbohydrate Gram Counter" before they start. Why 4 stars instead of 5? A hard cover or spiral bound cover, and laminated pages, would make it easier to carry the book in purse or briefcase and use it in restaurants without worrying about ruining it.
