(( For years, followers of the Atkins diet were told.. eat plenty red meat.. eggs and cheese and lose weight.
But the New York Times reports today that Atkins officials are now telling their clients to lighten-up on the saturated fats they once championed.
Elizabeth Pakkala a former Atkins dieter says she couldn't stomach the headaches and mood swings she experienced after being on the Atkins plan for only 8 days.
((13:29:13: ELIZABETH PAKKALA)) "IF THEY'RE RECONSIDERING WHAT THEY SAID IN THE BEGINNING THEN YOU KNOW i'M HAPPY ABOUT IT."

The switch from once guilt-free foods such as butter and bacon..comes less than a year after the death of diet guru Dr. Robert Atkins... and amidst competition from the popular South Beach diet... which promotes low fat proteins such as fish.
President Bill Clinton credits the plan with his svelter physique...and so does Elizabeth Pakkala who lost 22 pounds in five months after going on the South Beach diet.
((13;25;10: ELIZABETH PAKKALA)) "WITH THIS DIET YOU CAN HAVE SLADS AND VEGETABLES AND NUTS AND FOOD VARIETY THAT WASN'T PERMITTED ON ATKINS."))

(( For years, followers of the Atkins diet were told.. eat plenty red meat.. eggs and cheese and lose weight.
But the New York Times reports today that Atkins officials are now telling their clients to lighten-up on the saturated fats they once championed.
Elizabeth Pakkala a former Atkins dieter says she couldn't stomach the headaches and mood swings she experienced after being on the Atkins plan for only 8 days.
((13:29:13: ELIZABETH PAKKALA)) "IF THEY'RE RECONSIDERING WHAT THEY SAID IN THE BEGINNING THEN YOU KNOW i'M HAPPY ABOUT IT."

The switch from once guilt-free foods such as butter and bacon..comes less than a year after the death of diet guru Dr. Robert Atkins... and amidst competition from the popular South Beach diet... which promotes low fat proteins such as fish.
President Bill Clinton credits the plan with his svelter physique...and so does Elizabeth Pakkala who lost 22 pounds in five months after going on the South Beach diet.
((13;25;10: ELIZABETH PAKKALA)) "WITH THIS DIET YOU CAN HAVE SLADS AND VEGETABLES AND NUTS AND FOOD VARIETY THAT WASN'T PERMITTED ON ATKINS."))
((STANDUP: THE PRESIDENT OF ATKINS ISN'T COMMENTING ON THE CHANGES.. AT LEAST NOT UNTIL LATER THIS WEEK. BUT THE SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY.. SKEPTICAL FOR YEARS .. IS NOW SAYING.. I TOLD YOU SO.

((SOT: DIETICIAN))

The question for the thousands of Atkins faithful.. is whether the new recommendations will help them reduce their waistlines.
