My fifth and final Atkins audiobook review is of Atkins For Life by Dr. Robert C. Atkins. Released in 2003, the book’s subject matter is crystal clear: it’s about doing Atkins for life. Should you listen to it? Read on for my thoughts.
The Atkins 100 Eating Solution: Easy, Low-Carb Living for Everyday Wellness is the latest official book from Atkins about the low-carb lifestyle first brought to the masses 50 years ago by Dr. Robert C. Atkins. The author, Colette Heimowitz, is vice president of nutrition and education at Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. She has more than 25 years of experience as a nutritionist and received her MSc in clinical nutrition from Hunter College of the City University of New York. Moreover, Colette worked alongside Dr. Atkins at his clinical practice in New York, helping thousands of patients. With so many Atkins books available, how does this one stack up? Read on for my thoughts.
My wife and I made a recipe recently, courtesy of Wendy Polisi of Kicking Carbs, which was tasty and easy: Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken. We made it on a George Forman Grill and had French-cut green beans and tater tots as sides. All told, the meal was 31 net carbs, and I had half a piece of chicken left over which I had the next day for lunch with a side of spinach. Read on for the recipe, nutritional information, and more. If you’re also making this using a George Forman Grill, make sure to look up the appropriate amount of time to cook your chicken. Enjoy!
If you’ve been following my recent posts, then you know I’ve been doing Atkins and seeing terrific results because of this lifestyle change. I find it fitting that I decided to get into Atkins in 2022, the 50th anniversary of Dr. Robert C. Atkins’ seminal book that brought the low-carb approach to millions of people the world over. Below is my review of the updated version of Dr. Atkins’ New Diet Revolution, released in 2002. The audiobook, which is what I’m reviewing here, came out in 2004.
Here’s another low-carb recipe for you, courtesy of Wendy Polisi of Kicking Carbs: Keto Chili Cheese Dog Casserole! My wife and I had this recently for dinner, and it was good. However, two things are worth noting — first, the recipe says to preheat the oven from the get-go; this is incorrect as you have many preparatory steps to take before the oven is even needed. Second, I added leftover Banza macaroni and cheese shells to my leftovers of this casserole and it made it eminently better than the recipe below. I strongly encourage you to do the same if you’re looking to make this more flavorful, interesting, and satisfying. Read on for the recipe, nutritional information, and more. Enjoy!
