Now we are going to get to the bottom of a mystery and one of the great inequities of life. I bet you know people who eat more than you do, exercise less and yet never seem to put on a pound. They’re not lying about the amount they eat any more than you are. They do eat a lot. Maddening, but true
Instead of envying them, realize that these slim friends are actually cause for celebration. The fact that they are not fat is living, breathing proof that being overweight needn’t mean you’re greedy, weak-willed, lazy or self-indulgent. Instead, in all probability, it may mean you are only 30 metabolically less fortunate than they are. Doesn’t that make a lot more sense? Most people eat when they’re hungry and stop when they’re full. And if that’s the case, how could they be overeating? They’re doing what their bodies tell them to do.
It’s What You Eat
Do you believe that a man can go from gaining 0.5 pound a week to losing 3.9 pounds a week without significantly altering the number of calories he consumes? Let me introduce you to Harry Kronberg. I want you to pay close attention to his story and try not to give way to disbelief, because these results are real.
Harry Kronberg, the 39-year-old manager of a lumberyard, came to me with a heart arrhythmia and a desperate weight problem. He had been chubby even as a child, but now things were out of hand. A few years before, he had gone to a low-fat diet center and had managed to drop from 245 to 185 pounds. Sounds good. But before long, Harry had gained it all back with an added dividend of another 35 pounds.

OK, It’s What I Eat, But Will I Still Enjoy Eating?
It will really surprise me if you can’t. Let’s take a look at Patricia Finley’s menu. She’s been doing Atkins for three and a half months, and she’s lost 31 pounds. Patricia, who used to eat quite a lot of starches and who would sometimes go, on massive dessert binges when she was under pressure, has converted to tasty, controlled carbohydrate eating.
For breakfast, she eats a cheese omelette, or some vegetables with blue cheese, or bacon and eggs. Lunch can be tuna fish or chicken with a sumptuous salad. But sometimes she’ll have chopped sirloin sauteed with onions, chili powder and peppers. Patricia enjoys having olives or asparagus spears for snacks, but she puts the greatest amount of energy and attention into dinner.
She finds that it isn’t possible to feel deprived when you’re enjoying a meal consisting of guacamole (mashed avocado mixed with tomatoes, onion and seasoning) and strips of chicken and steak. Add to that her passion for grated zucchini in olive oil with butter and nutmeg, her taste for broccoli with lemon butter sauce and her homemade recipe for chicken soup, and what do you get? Starvation? Not. Patricia also enjoys lamb shanks with chopped onions cooked with olive oil, herbs and “Crazy Mixed Up Salt.” And she assures me this is only a small sample of 31 the food she finds it possible and delightful to eat-doing Atkins
