Which Atkins book?
I have been doing induction (just starting week 2) by reading online. Everyone says to read the book. Which book should I get? My library has a few, but I may just order one from Amazon.

I bought Atkins the new you. I read it cover to cover. I like having it because it has all the foods listed in it as well as their net carbs, and it also explains how to follow the phases properly. I found it really useful.

I have the 1972 and the 2001 versions, I like both of them but for a newer person, I would go with the 2001. I would check out a used bookstore, the shelves are bursting with them.

I agree, Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution 2002. The "newer" books were not written by Dr. Atkins himself.

That's what I follow. Of course, it was new the first time I followed it. :p

It's slightly less strict than the 1972 version, but not near as lax as the newest. I don't like all the emphasis on processed foods in the latest books. :down:
