The article comments on a study which examined the relative effectiveness of Atkins, Zone and Ornish diets for weight loss in overweight or obese premenopausal women. According to the author, the finding that the Atkins diet led to greater weight loss and physiological benefits may not reassure nurses who have discouraged patients from this diet out of concern for cardiovascular risk, kidney impairment, cancer, bone mineral loss, and neurological symptoms.
