The Atkins diet: a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet commonly used for weightloss.
Now, this celebrity-endorsed diet is under fire for promoting weightloss with no health gain.
New research out of Washington University's School of Medicine in St. Louis asserts that while people who consume a high-protein diet may lose weight, their insulin sensitivity rate doesn't improve. This is problematic as insulin sensitivity decreases in people who are overweight, which means that, according to The Guardian, they becomes less effective at controlling blood-sugar levels. This ultimately can lead to type-2 diabetes.
Here, we round up a slew of celebrities who have been linked to the now-controversial diet.
