    [QUOTE=Crunchy;7313596]Which book is the best one to get to introduce me to Atkins and start me on my journey?

    Hiya, I bought the two new Atkins books but I have since been advised that the original one from 2003 is the best one as the newer ones advocate the Atkins products whereas the older one focuses purely on food.

    I did Atkins myself in 2003 and lost about 60lb in about 4 months using this book and I have to say it was very easy to follow and made a lot of sense. I lost my book during a house move but I got a used one off for 1.91 or you could maybe rent it from your local library

    Good luck it really is very good
    Those that don't got it can't show it. Those that got it can't hide it !!

    I cannot vouch for other books, but I personally bought "new atkins, new you" and have found it really good as it has detailed meal plans, and good instructions for vegetarians.

    I found it didn't really promote their products at all and in fact advised against eating too many.

    I think this one emphasises more vegetables than previous books, which is good for me as I tend to get constipated (sorry tmi) when low carbing being a veggie and used to lots of fibre.
