With low carb diets all the rage, it was big news last month whenaonce
obscure Florida businessman filed a lawsuit against the estate of Dr.
Robert Atkins, claiming the late doctor's popular diet nearly killed him.
He says the high-protein, high-fat, weight-loss plan caused his heart
disease. The lawsuit has once again turned up the heat on the Atkins
diet, putting the long-simmering controversy back on the front burner.
How healthy and how safe is it?
Jody Gorran: From my perspective, Dr. Atkins was a liar... I may have
been a fool, but I believed him. I believed that the diet wasn't a danger
His lawsuit, for personal injury and negligence, is one the Atkins people
are not taking lightly. And the fight, in the court of public opinion
anyway, could be quite unsettling to the millions of Americans who've
opted for Atkins to help them lose weight and stay healthy.
Gorran: The worst thing I ever did was going on the Atkins diet.
