Atkins was indeed overweight and speculation started stating that he may have died from his own diet. Even the American Medical Association has said publicly that the Atkins diet poses a serious threat to health. All these diet doctors and authors these days of this low carb craze depend on this money-making machine of bars, shakes, TV dinners, best-selling books and Atkins was no exception, if anything he is the father of the fad diet.

Please make sure to read this great article from the Hippocrates Health Institute about the Atkins diet. Suffering gout from a young age. What the Singapore China Health Study teaches us. Cayenne Pepper and Gout. Spiro,Could you give me your opinion on whether deep fried chips once a week maybe are suitable for a gout sufferer who just had my first attack, and the more healthy option oven chips would they be ok?

Anything deep fried raises uric acid levels, so avoid it if you can. If you really enjoy it then simply have it once a blue moon. Why not try baked in the oven chips? You may like it. I think there is a failure to communicate here. It sounds like when Spiro refers to Atkins he is talking about eating a plate full of meat every day with a twig of parsley on the side. The literature is very clear about not eating too much meat protein just read the book not the web.

When switched to Atkins I ended up eating way more green and fiber rich vegetables that I ever had before, but no starches and or grains which is what I usually had before Atkins but you introduce them again in moderation after several weeks.

I think that is were the problems come in that Spiro is mentioning. Overall I would consider going more plant based so long as the sugar intake from breads and starches and fruits are limited if that is what is required to lower uric acid. I think his statements on lowering acid levels and consuming foods to balance ph are intriguing. Fish or chicken will suffice and a regular portion is what is recommended in Atkins, which Spiro also emphasizes in his eBook.

In regards to Atkins death who gives AF, it contributes nothing to the conversation. Just read the book and take issue with his claims, methodologies, and conclusions. Then we can benefit from a different point of view on those things. How he died seems like an easy in-road to discredit him I know, but if that was true it would have worked already. Time to move on. There some nice gains from Atkins that are not talked about much. For instance 1 most amazing thing: I noticed I can discern between different flavors of coffee weird.

No post lunch crashes. I feel stronger during workouts, can go for longer. Of-course building muscle is easier if you working out because of the steady protein and fat. Carbohydrates burn quick, not great for a long workout or run. I think the most important point to emphasize is how things affect uric acid levels in the blood. I have to disagree with your statements about Atkins and increased Gout risk.

The following study, albeit small, has provided evidence that a low-carbohydrate diet reduces Uric Acid levels in obese individuals. I am a Gout sufferer who is obese, and I have recently started the Atkins diet, after having done Nutrisystem, and regular diet restriction.

I have not suffered Gout on Atkins yet, after being on the diet for a week and having lost 7 lbs. Atkins has evolved from the s to now allowing a lot more fiber into the diet.

It does have some grains of truth just like most incomplete science from the eighties. The problem ended up being trans fats and saturated fat not just fat.

We all bought into the high carb low fat concept. Well now the science of healthy fats is well documented and insulin resistance science is being understood. High protein can also raise insulin so you are correct about too much protein not to mention all meat is not the same.

Processed meat and meat with GMOs hormones added and steroids are all a problem. Must be grass fed organic meet omega 3 rather than 6. But you probably need to re examine your information based on current science.

Carbs are cancer fuel. Need a healthy balance but that balance should be much lower in carbs than has been pushed for the last 30 years. I have been on a keto diet for the last couple months.

I did have a gout attack at first but I attribute that to losing weight so rapidly. After that I have been absolutely fine. My BP is about as normal as it gets. I have been enjoying my high fat and protein diet. I feel better than I have in years. Doctors have agreed for a long time on low carb for people with diabetes and people with epilepsy, and now most nutritional scientists and may doctors are starting to align in that the shift to the low fat, high carb is what has created the obesity epidemic we have today.

The food pyramid is part of the problem, and even the government is backing away from that. I met Dr Atkins at his office for a full check up at his office within 2 months prior to his death.

He was NOT obese. He died after slipping on ice following a bad ice storm which I recall. I would agree to disagree. There is plenty of evidence that it is a unhealthy diet and dangerous. I know the Atkins fans are fanatical about this diet though. Spiro, your write up was crap. I know a former Mr Universe and have a cell ph number of a former Mr Olympia in my contacts list.

As well as the professional coroner if you think about it that verified Mr Atkins cause of death. On several points you run like a mad man with speculation and hearsay as if its fact. As such, obese individuals are in an altered state, due to a metabolic insufficiency, which requires specific nutritional treatment capable of normalising the leptin production and reducing the systematic low-level inflammation, in order to reduce the harmful impact of these systematic mediators on the joint health.

There are nutritional supplements and pharmacological agents capable of directing these factors and improving both conditions.

Leptin was approved in the United States in for use in congenital leptin deficiency and generalized lipodystrophy. An analog of human leptin metreleptin trade name Myalept was first approved in Japan in , and in the United States in February In the US it is indicated as a treatment for complications of leptin deficiency, and for the diabetes and hypertriglyceridemia associated with congenital or acquired generalized lipodystrophy.
