The Atkins diet is a low-carb diet and is very similar to the ketogenic diet. It is useful in weight loss. In this diet, you consume more proteins and fats but low carbs. It was originally promoted by the physician Dr. Robert C. Atkins.

 

In this diet low carb and increased protein intake leads to reduce appetite. When carbs are low in the body, it starts breaking down proteins and fats to produce energy for the body, which helps in reducing body weight.
