Atkin's diet slims male beer bellies

The Atkins diet resulted in a greater fat loss from the trunk than those on a normal low fat diet. Excess fat around the stomach area has been associated with increased risk of heart disease. However, the down side is that a high fat, low fibre diet may cause an increase in osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, kidney problems and liver disorders.
