Robert Atkins, world-famous inventor of the Atkins Diet and the author of Diet Revolution, firmly believed modern diets of refined carbohydrates and sugar to be the root of insulin metabolism problems, which contribute to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and coronary heart disease. In this 1990’s interview, Dr. Atkins discusses his theories on how obesity is remedied by decreasing insulin levels via the elimination of carbohydrates while continuing to consume primarily high-protein foods, such as meat, fish, fowl, eggs and cheese.
