Protein takes priority over fat content

The instructions given in the original 1972 version of his diet by Dr Atkins’ was to focus on protein consumption as a priority.

Those struggling to lose weight on this diet, even when adhering to a strict carb content limit, should take a look at the fat content and take steps to reduce it.

Recipes have been included in which fat content is higher than protein.  These recipes carry a warning for those who might need additional measures in their ongoing weight-loss or weight maintenance efforts.
