many people as I could to lose weight. I felt certain then—and continue
to do so—that the widespread dissemination of misinformation about
what constitutes a healthy diet had caused that epidemic of weight gain
in this country.
The book made a greater impact than anyone might have predicted.
Its sales exceeded ten million copies, and it was the number oneselling
diet and health book in the U.S. for nearly five years. In fact, it
has been the all-time top seller in its field. Certainly of the millions of
people who’ve read it, a large percentage followed its precepts, lost
weight, kept it off and decisively improved their health.
What you hold in your hands is a thoroughly rewritten version of that
work. Having listened with care to the people who followed my weight
control program, I’ve clarified and improved the “do-ability” of the practical
chapters of this book. I’ve added many new case histories and a horde
of new and improved recipes. Finally, I’ve incorporated information on
the recent upsurge of scientific evidence. We had it right ten years ago,
but now we have twice as much research to confirm the nutritional approach
championed by New Diet Revolution.
To make this book more useful, we've made a host of improvements:
- Use of a new software program
- More data
- More controlled carb foods
- Other new products
- More vegetables
- More categories
- New sections
Long a champion of complementary medicine and nutritional therapy, Dr. Robert Atkins, author of the #1 best-seller Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, presents the scientific basis for the use of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, and hormones in the treatment and prevention of many of the chronic illnesses that plague us today. These vita-nutrients harness the body's ability to heal itself, rather than resorting to conventional drugs and invasive procedures, and address the true causes of disease instead of temporarily alleviating symptoms, promoting longer-lasting and more effective healing.
In this comprehensive guide, Dr. Atkins shares vital information on more than 120 supplements, including:
- The specific restorative powers of each nutrient
- How to determine the optimal dosage schedule
- How to obtain supplements that are new to the market or are available only in limited supply
- The formula for a basic foundation of vita-nutrients that almost everyone needs every day
Best of all, Dr. Atkins shows you how to create a personalized program to help improve or regain your health by using combinations of nutritional supplements specifically designed to help cure or prevent more than fifty common medical conditions, including arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, or infections. Backed by cutting-edge scientific research, his recommendations are both safe and effective.
