ATKINS SCIENCE ADVISORY BOARD
WE'VE ALWAYS SAID IT – SCIENCE IS THE BASIS FOR OUR NUTRITIONAL APPROACH.
In order to continue to educate people about the growing body of emerging research highlighting the health benefits associated with the principles of the Atkins Nutritional Approach as well as the development of new products, Atkins created a multi-disciplinary Science Advisory Board that includes nationally known experts in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, physiology and food science.
The group advises Atkins on the latest scientific findings and medical studies that investigate the safety, efficacy and nutritional value of the Atkins Nutritional Approach and its products. Each member of the board provides ongoing expert counsel to Atkins as we continue to help people achieve their weight loss and weight management goals.
As part of their work, the board will monitor the growing body of research, now totaling more than 80 studies that highlight the positive weight loss results and other health benefits associated with following the Atkins Diet. These benefits include weight loss, improvement in risk factors for heart disease, hypertension and diabetes, inflammation, benefits in treating epilepsy and decreasing obesity in children and adolescents.
