Being a market leader in the weight loss nutrition category, Atkins Diet principles were introduced by Dr. Robert C. Atkins in 1963 and since that the company continues the initial approach to dieting. Over the years, lots of science-based improvements and innovations were put into the practice by the company.
Based on low-carb diet, Atkins nutritional approach to burn fats by limiting carbohydrates has been proven by over 80 clinical studies. The Atkins Diet provides a long-term, well-balanced plan that teaches individuals to find their ideal carb balance. The main reason low-carb diets are so effective for weight loss, is that when people reduce carbohydrate intake, the body burns fat, including body fat.
Atkins offers a wide variety of nutrition bars, shakes, snacks and frozen meals to support Atkins Diet. Over the years the company selection of products grows and not only that, they taste delicious too, making diet plan much more stable and effective. Besides the products, Atkins offers huge free resources on-line to support your diet including plans, tasty recipes, grocery shopping plans, meal planners, carb counter, forums and groups. Atkins is much more than just a “diet company”, it is a community to help and connect, improve your health and support your dietary preferences and lifestyle. Atkins do want you to be healthy and lose weight!
I think I was very lucky to meet Colette Heimowitz, VP Nutrition & Education at Atkins Nutritionals at the event. She walked us through the evolution of Atkins and presented latest innovations in Atkins program. Colette Heimowitz is also New York Times’ best-selling author with the latest publication The New Atkins Made Easy I had a chance to get. In January 2015, Atkins launched Atkins 40, a new diet, specially designed for people with 40 pounds or less to lose, to compliment the traditional Atkins 20 plan.
From new variety of products I put Atkins Pecan Caramel Clusters and Chocolaty Covered Almonds on top in taste along with Classic Trail Mix and Sweet & Salty Trail Mix. They are available across Canada at Shoppers Drug Mart, Real Canadian Superstore and Rexall, and in Quebec at Walmart, Pharmaplus, or Brunet and online at http://www.buyatkins.ca.
