I was lucky enough to attend the recent The Atkins Made Easy book launch at the Bouley Test Kitchen in Tribeca hosted by actress Courtney Thorne-Smith of Two And A Half Men who also just happens to be the Atkins Diet celebrity spokesperson. Press got the rundown on the book and new eating plan from Thorne herself (as well as Atkins Vice President of Nutrition & Education Colette Heimowitz and The Skinny Chef, Jennifer Iserloh, who developed the new book's recipe) while sampling low carb appetizers.
The famous 40-year-old plus eating plan's new easy "basics" were shown on colorful charts, and changes were discussed, including getting to add fresh berries to the program early on and how hard cheeses are better for weight loss than soft cheeses (those are now saved for those who have spent a few months on the program).
