Blog: Atkins retraction? Apparently not…

Catherine Sleep | 20 January 2004

News media this week carried a story which suggested that Atkins Nutritionals was changing tack, advising that slimmers following the low-carb Atkins plan should take care not to gorge themselves on fatty foods. The news was greeted with relief by nutritionists who felt vindicated, as many have expressed concern at the high fat intake of Atkins dieters.

However, Atkins Nutritionals moved swiftly to correct the impression that it was changing its advice, issuing a press release saying that any media claims that it was retreating from its long held position on the consumption of fat was simply wrong.

Any of you guys tried the Atkins? If so, do you worry about your fat intake?
