Same Diet? Or different? Dr. Atkins died of heart disease, didn't he? So what makes such a diet so good?

Atkins died because he slipped on the ice and cracked his skull.

I heard that a vegetarian died a while back -- it was probably all the vegetables that killed him!

Different things. Atkins is a very specific diet. Paleo is so hard to define that this whole website is devoted to defining it.

There is an intersection of Atkins and Paleo where one can choose to eat "Paleo" foods within the structure of the Atkins phases/carb counting setup.

Dr. Atkins died of complications from a fall.

To mention a couple of differences:

-Omega 3/6 ratio

-No processed foods

-No vegetable oils

-No artificial sweeteners

-Not necessarily low carb

-Not a weight-loss aid only, but a way of life

-Abundance of plant based foods

-IF

-..........

Read this.

http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/health/2003-04-17-atkins-dies_x.htm

This question, at it's root, is exactly why this website exists. The entire site, all of the questions and subsequent responses indirectly (some directly) answer your question.

If you are informed at all about what Atkins is and have done any research on Paleo or read any of the primary Paleo books, the answer will slap you in the face.
