While counting carbohydrates has become an everyday practice for the adherents to a low-carb, high-fat, high-protein plan, Atkins faced a lifetime of adversity from a medical establishment that scoffed at his radical ideas, even though they proved effective. But many questions still remain about the man and his methods: Was he really overweight when he died? Did he really believe everything he wrote, or was he driven by money and fame? And what happened to the Atkins empire after his death? These questions and more are answered in this revealing, fascinating glimpse into the public and private life of a unique and brilliant doctor and promoter who revolutionized the way we think about food.
