An estimated three million people in UK have tried controversial Atkins Diet, suggests a poll; 7% of men and 10% of women had given it a try. Despite all warnings coming from dieticians, Atkins diet is extremely popular, as it is in United States. Why on earth is this diet so largely voted ? Nutritionists are puzzled and are trying to explain this. The public already knows that Atkins is more effective than standard diets (those low-fat or controlled-calories diet) in losing weight; no one could persuade them to give up Atkins.

Secrets from dieters' diaries
A very recent BBC show disclosed a completely new point of view regarding Atkins diet's success. On 12 August 2004, a few specialists were invited by narrator Barbara Flynn to debate Atkins advantages and drawbacks. The Atkins diet was "chopped" by Prof. Joe Milward, Dr. Theodore Vanitallie, Dr. Gary Foster, Dr. Eric Westman, Dr. Mary Vernon, Dr. Paul Robinson, Prof. Joseph Donelly, Dr. Susan Jebb, prof. Arm Astrup.
Participants shared a shocking finding. Ketosis has nothing to do with pounds' dissapearance; actually, by lowering appetite, Atkins dieters are losing weight!

Do Low Carbohydrate Diets Lead to Weight Loss Success?Written by Marsha J. Hudnall, MS, RD, CD
So your neighbor, office mate, best friend, whoever just lost 10 pounds in only two weeks following latest in high protein low carbohydrate diets. And now you’re thinking you should give it a go -- have even started search for high protein low carbohydrate recipes?
True, high protein low carb diets seem to be leading many people to weight loss success. Trouble is, they seemed to do it 30 years ago, too. They were rage in early 70s, and look where many of us are today: growing fatter with each decade.
The bottom line: Diets -- low carb diets or not -- simply don’t work for vast majority of people. If that doesn't convince you, look at some of reasons why high protein low carbohydrate diets seem to create weight loss success stories -- but really don't.
“I’m not hungry when I eat high protein low carb diets.”
Many people say they feel more satisfied eating low carbohydrate diets. And indeed, studies show protein is most satiating nutrient. Proteins and fat (which is usually in high protein low carbohydrate foods) cause your body to release cholecystokinin, a hormone that contributes to feeling of fullness. Some protein in meals and even snacks may help us feel more satisfied and go longer between eating. But key word is “some.” We don’t need an excess of protein, or low carb diets, to get these effects. By just eating balanced meals that contain grain/starchy foods, protein foods, vegetables and/or fruits and some fat, most people can achieve same satiety. One other important note is that hunger control with low carbohydrate diets is often result of ketosis (when your body burns fat for fuel.) Ketosis is very unhealthy, causing nausea, headaches, fatigue, even coma.
