Updated on January 6, 2017


Robert C Atkins, MD

If you haven't heard of Atkins then you haven't been exposed to the the world of weight loss ideologies or methodologies to aid the overweight achieve health and weight loss through the foods we buy and enjoy eating.

His approach is that eating large amounts of protein primarily should be used as the major component to defeating obesity and the diseases that come with eating engineered foods which we know are carbohydrates, basically man made white foods, full of sugar, flour and wasted calories, along with all of the unpronounceable ingredients like dyes and preservatives.

Foods that leave us hungry and fat, cooked up in someone's laboratory.

According to the doctor he got involved in this weight loss business because he wanted to help his patients..

All of his information came about because he realized that if he could assist his patients lose the excess weight, they could have optimal health, reversing the reasons they came to him in the first place, their other diseases.

Health became his major goal.


Weight loss was a beneficial side affect because he was treating other issues successfully.

What he learned.

  • Obesity exists because of metabolic reasons.
  • The obese gained weight on fewer calories
  • Metabolic disturbance comes from hyperinsulinism and insulin resistance
  • Restricting carbohydrates can aid with metabolic issues involving insulin
  • Long term slimness could only be reached and maintained through eating the right foods, basically like our prehistoric ancestors

Atkins recommendations concerning his diet or food lifestyle are simple and inviting to one who struggles with their weight and subsequently their health.

  • limitless foods
  • excludes hunger
  • rich foods
  • reduces appetite
  • steady weight loss
  • lifetime adaptation
  • health improvements, reverses diseases
  • metabolic edge

Perfect Foods

Through his research Dr Atkins determined that there are "perfect foods".

These perfect foods usually have a high ratio of fat content and are typically known to be protein which can effectively lead the body into a fasting state without causing hunger or severe discomfort.

He recommends them as part of his Induction phase of his diet plan, which is primarily made up of foods like meat, eggs fish and fowl.

Yet there are other foods like sour cream, butter, caviar, pork rinds, pate, sugarless mayonnaise, avocado and heavy whipping cream.

Overview of the Induction Phase of Atkins diet.

This is what Atkins states as the corrective diet, its primary purpose is to correct, as expediently as possible, an unbalanced metabolism.

  • 14 days
  • fat burning metabolism
  • stabilize blood sugar
  • stop cravings
  • break food addictions
  • weight loss
  • metabolic advantage

The Fat Fast Alternative

According to Atkins, there are two (2) perfect foods for his version of the fat fast, especially if you are looking to lose 5 pound in 5 days.

That satiate.

That are exactly the correct proportions.

That fill the 90% criterion of fat content naturally.

It is restricted

  • in length of time used, two (2) days
  • in the number of daily intake of calories, around 900
  • to those whose body fat is resistant,

How it's done

  • frequent small feedings, the nibbler's method, four (4) or five (5) times daily
  • each feeding, one (1) item choice at 250 calories or 200 calories
  • brief intervals, two (2) days

Quickest Pounds Lost

The Edge

The combination of the cream cheese and the macadamia nuts on a daily basis for at the very least 24 hours and up to 72 hours is to be used as a catalyst for people whose body fat is resistant.

Atkins adds this advisory for his fat fast, "it is not designed for those who want to lose fat fast".

Yet he does state after this disclaimer that he would encourage it's use for two (2) days.

The challenge

Use it for two days.
