About the Author

Robert C. Atkins, M.D., was the founder and medical director of the Atkins Center for Complementary Medicine. A 1951 graduate of the University of Michigan, he received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical School in 1955, and went on to specialize in cardiology. He was a practicing physician for over thirty years and is the author of several books. As a leader in the areas of natural medicine and nutritional pharmacology, he had built an international reputation. He was the recipient of the World Organization of Alternative Medicine's Recognition of Achievement Award and was the National Health Federation's Man of the Year. His many media appearances, where he had discussed diet and health, included "Larry King Live," "Oprah," "CBS This Morning," and "CNBC," among others. Many magazine and newspaper articles have featured his work, and he also had a nationally syndicated radio show. Dr. Atkins was the editor of his own national monthly newsletter, "Dr. Atkins' Health Revelations." He died in April 2003.

Veronica Atkins was born in Russia and narrowly escaped the Nazi onslaught during World War II by fleeing to live with her great-aunt in Vienna. In the years since, she has lived in seven countries and become fluent in as many languages. Her far-flung travels have given her an extensive knowledge of international cuisine. Music has also played an important role in her life. She began singing in Europe at a young age and performed professionally as an opera singer from 1963 to 1976. Today she is actively involved in Dr. Atkins' work at the Center for Complementary Medicine. She serves on the board of directors of the Foundation for the Advancement of Innovative Medicine Education Group. Her current stage is the kitchen, where she actively creates and develops delicious low-carbohydrate recipes.
