Robert Atkins, famous for the Atkins Diet, died at the age of 72 after a fall
in the street. Atkins was a doctor, he had studied at the University of Michigan.
He became quite fat after he left the university and he tried different diets
to lose weight.
He thought that people had problems with weight because they ate
the wrong things called today "comida chatarra". At that moment he decided to write his first diet book in 1970.
Not many people bought the book at first , but Atkins's diet is now
very popular and his books are bestsellers. They have gone around the world.
