Atkins diet - Wikipedia

Robert Coleman Atkins (October 17, 1930 – April 17, 2003) was an American physician and cardiologist , best known for the "Atkins Nutritional Approach", or " Atkins Diet ", a fad diet that requires close control of carbohydrate consumption, emphasizing protein and fat as the primary sources of dietary calories in addition to a controlled number of carbohydrates from vegetables.

Although the commercial success of Atkins' diet plan, weightloss books, and lifestyle company, Atkins Nutritionals , led Time to name the doctor one of the ten most influential people in 2002, [1] there is no good evidence that his diet is an effective approach to weight loss. [2] [3]

Atkins was born in Columbus, Ohio, the son of Eugene and Norma (Tuckerman) Atkins. At the age of twelve, his family moved to Dayton, Ohio , where his father owned several restaurants. As a young teen, Atkins held various jobs, including a position selling shoes at the age of 14 and a later gig on a local radio show. He attended Fairview High School in Dayton and, in 1947, finished second among 8,500 seniors on a statewide general scholarship test. [4] Upon graduating from the University of Michigan in 1951, Atkins had thoughts of becoming a comedian and spent the summer as a waiter and entertainer at various resorts in the Adirondacks.
