The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook Provides 200 Simple and Delicious Low-Carb Recipes

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 2, 2012) - A new year means new resolutions, and for many those resolutions will include adopting a healthier lifestyle through diet. Atkins™, the original and leading low-carb weight loss plan based on extensive scientific research, has launched a new cookbook to help keep those New Year's Resolutions on track. The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook by Colette Heimowitz, M.Sc., vice president of nutrition and education at Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. gives readers original recipes that are quick, simple, accessible and delicious.

The cookbook offers a wide range of dishes including vegetarian and vegan options that help provide long-term, well balanced weight loss that has been effective for millions of Americans.

To celebrate the launch of The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook, celebrity chef Donatella Arpaia, most notably known as a recurring judge on Food Network's "Iron Chef America," "Next Iron Chef" and a regular contributor to the "Today" show, has partnered with Atkins and recently started the Atkins Diet™ after the birth of her baby. She says: "Atkins' new cookbook fits perfectly with my busy lifestyle as a new mom -- the recipes can be prepared in less than 30 minutes and allow me to eat delicious, satisfying meals. Of course, like any chef I always add my own signature twist to any dish I prepare!"

Helping even the busiest people get great low-carb meals on the table with minimal time and effort, The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook provides perfect recipes for a lifetime of healthy, enjoyable eating.
