What is the Atkins diet? Officially called the Atkins Nutritional approach, it is a low carbohydrate diet created by Robert Atkins. The Atkins diet involves restricting carbs to aid the body's metabolism from burning glucose as fuel to burning stored body fat. This process, called ketosis, begins when insulin levels are low; in normal humans, insulin is lowest when blood glucose levels are low (mostly before eating).
