In my opinion, the "new" book, New Atkins For A New You, is a great reference book. By that I mean, it gives a good scientific explaination of a low carb lifestyle. That being said, as far as the Atkins eating plan goes & the way to do it correctly, I am a firm believer in doing it the way Dr. Atkins himself wrote it. Sadly, once Atkins Nutritionals Inc. got their greedy mitts into the pot, Atkins bars & shakes were suddenly "appropriate for Induction". Dr. Atkins created those products to be used for emergencies, in situations when no other low carb options were available....not to be eaten on a daily basis.
I believe the "new" book has its place as it is a great explantion of how & why low carb works but....to truly do Atkins, that needs to come from the good Dr. himself.
