T. Colin Campbell has often been asked his opinion about the Atkins 'movement' and finally has written a brief commentary as a critique of the new Atkins book, now in stores and on-line at The book is titled The New Atkins for a New You and is authored by EC Westman, SD Phinney and JS Volek. 

This is not a full review of the empirical evidence. Rather, it is addressed more to the manner in which the information on the Atkins type diet has been communicated to the public, as with this new book. Dr. Campbell considers the advocacy of this type of dietary lifestyle to be very misguided, both in its interpretation of the scientific evidence and in the manner in which it is conveyed to the public.

We suggest that you may wish to see Dr. Campbell's statement and to vote on whether you find the review "helpful" or "unhelpful" with a mere check in the appropriate box. The review is posted on the Amazon website at:
