English term or phrase:Atkins-friendly
Sin No. 1: Gluttony
Obstacle: You never met a calorie you didn't like
Motivation: Eating your way to six-pack abs
Grill some steak. Sounds decadent, but a slab of medium-rare beef isn't the indulgent, diet-busting food you might think. Besides all that Atkins-friendly protein, beef is also an excellent source of stearic acid, a type of metabolism-boosting fat that makes up nearly 32% of the saturated fat in your standard cut of red meat.

Explanation: Where's the beef? It's on the plates of some 30 million people on the Atkins diet. Founded as Atkins Complementary Formulations in 1989, Atkins Nutritionals makes more than 250 food products (nutrition bars, shakes, bake mixes, breads) and nearly 100 nutritional supplements (antioxidants, essential oils). It also provides informational products (Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution). The firm's products, sold in more than 30,000 stores nationwide, support a controlled-carbohydrate diet commonly known as the Atkins diet and formally known as the Atkins Nutritional Approach.
