The Great Cholesterol Myth author weighs in on Kim Kardashian's Diet

October 17, 2013
Jonny Bowden, author of The Great Cholesterol Myth and other titles for Fair Winds Press, was asked by E! Online for his take on Kim Kardashian's 25-pound weight loss using the Atkins Diet.

"What distinguishes the Atkins diet is the absence of a lot of carbohydrates, so that leaves out a lot of choices. You can make bad choices and good choices, but there's nothing dangerous about the Atkins diet. There really isn't a downside to it," he told E! Online.

"Low-carb eating is the healthiest way to go and I completely support that, but you have to really change your relationship with food," he adds. "I haven't in 20 years of practice seen any real negative effects on someone that follows a low-carb diet regularly using good foods and a smart approach."

Bowden estimates that Kim has lost approximately 25 pounds on the Atkins diet.
