Science Advisory Board

Meet the Atkins Science Advisory Board

Science is the foundation of the Atkins Lifestyle. That’s why Atkins created a multidisciplinary Science Advisory Board (SAB). Its purpose is to educate people about the growing body of emerging research that highlighting the health benefits associated with the principles upon which the Atkins Diet is based. These same principles govern, as well as the development of new Atkins products. The SAB members include nationally known experts in the fields of nutrition, metabolism, physiology and food science.

The board advises Atkins on the latest scientific studies that investigate the safety, efficacy and nutritional value of the Atkins Lifestyle and its products. Each member of the board provides ongoing expert counsel to Atkins as we continue to help people achieve their weight loss and weight management goals.

As part of its work, the board monitors the growing body of research, now totaling more than 150 peer-reviewed published studies, which highlight the positive weight loss results and other health benefits associated with following the Atkins Diet. These benefits include weight loss; improvement in risk factors for heart disease, hypertension and diabetes; reduced levels of inflammation; treatment of epilepsy; and reduced incidence of child and adolescent obesity.
