Author Bio
Robert C. Atkins M.D.
After graduating from Cornell Medical School in 1955, Dr. Robert C. Atkins opened a private practice in New York City. Concerned about his weight and health, Atkins followed a low-carbohydrate diet with success, and he began to focus his practice on nutrition and the healing properties of food and food supplements. An appearance on the Tonight show and articles in Vogue magazine made him popular nationwide. In 1972, he published his classic best seller DR. ATKINS' DIET REVOLUTION. His high-fat, low carb approach, though popular, was also controversial. Medical professionals, including the American Medical Association, criticized him, and, later, he was stung by criticism from Dean Ornish, a popular diet guru and rival who advocated a diet high in grains, vegetables, and fruit. Meanwhile, Atkins expanded his medical practice to accommodate a holistic, nutritional approach, renaming it the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine. Though out of fashion for a decade or so, Dr. Atkins seemed vindicated in the 1990s by research which seemed to support some of his theories about fat in the diet. His books were republished and repackaged, and he published ATKINS FOR LIFE. Dr. Atkins, again, became a household name. In April, 2003, Dr. Atkins suffered a fall at the Atkins Center, and died after a short time in a coma. At the time of his death, he had a book on both the New York Times hardcover and paperback best seller lists.

The pioneering nutritionist Dr. Robert Atkins was born and raised in Ohio. He graduated from Cornell Medical School in 1955, and soon opened a private practice as a cardiologist in New York City. Concerned about his weight and general health, Atkins followed a low-carbohydrate diet with success, and soon afterward, he focused his practice on nutrition and wellness. He gained a wide national audience through appearances on the Tonight show, as well as articles in popular magazines such as Vogue. In 1972, he published his classic bestseller DR. ATKINS' DIET REVOLUTION. While his approach was popular with the general public, it was controversial in the medical community. Atkins was criticized by the American Medical Association, and by Dean Ornish, a popular diet guru and rival who advocated a diet high in grains, vegetables, and fruit. Atkins and his approach went out of popularity for a decade or so in the 1980s. Meanwhile, he founded the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine in New York City, where he advocated a holistic, nutritional approach to health. In the 1990s, new studies seemed to vindicate some of the claims about fat in the diet, and his books were repackaged and republished. He also published ATKINS FOR LIFE, a major book. In April 2003, Dr. Atkins suffered a fall on the sidewalk outside the Atkins Center, and died after a short time in a coma. At the time of his death he had a book on both the New York Times hardcover and paperback best seller lists. Years after his death, his books still sell, the work of his foundation continues, and even his rival, Dr. Ornish, has since had positive words for some of Atkins's ideas.
