More negative views on Atkins diet

In another negative review of the Atkins diet, Australian experts believe that the diet may be effective in the short term but over the long term is no more effective than a low fat diet. Also, the long term effects are unknown but are believed to include negative effects on cardiovascular system, kidney function and bone health. Bad breath, constipation and headache are also more common with the Atkins diet than other diets.
