Let’s face it — people like to keep fit, look good, and feel good about themselves and that is something that will never go out of style. And of course, it sure doesn’t hurt when you have a celebrity name-dropping and hawking your diet program, too. If you look at someone like Sharon Osbourne or Kim Kardashian, whatever the reality star is tweeting, hawking, promoting, or even talking about, the product either flies off the shelves or sells out in minutes. I guess you can call it the Kim Kardashian effect, and she’s doing it once again.
Sharon recently celebrated her one-year anniversary with the Atkins diet (where she lost 23 pounds), while Kim admitted that she, too, is on the diet to help shed those post-baby pounds after having given birth to her daughter North West. It looks like the popular no-carbs diet is definitely making a comeback.
A decade ago, the no carb/high protein Atkins was the most popular diet in Hollywood, with celebrity followers including Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger. Now Atkins is back, new and improved and with more varied foods on the menu. Dieters can include healthy carbs such as wholegrain bread, brown rice, pasta, and fruit. Jennifer is believed to be a fan of the more relaxed Atkins lite.
