Dr. Robert Atkins shook up the nutrition establishment in 1972 when he published "Dr. Atkins' Diet Revolution. " In that book and others that followed, he asserted that dieters could lose weight eating bacon, eggs, steak and rich sauces. His low-carb diet has remained controversial even as its popularity has waxed and waned through the years. Atkins died in 2003, and three other doctors have taken up his cause with an updated Atkins diet book, published last March. More than 300,000 copies of their book, "The New Atkins for a New You," are in print, according to publisher Fireside.

2009 Domaine Chignard Fleurie 'Les Moriers' If the only Beaujolais you've ever encountered is Beaujolais Nouveau and you've never tasted a Beaujolais cru, then this is the wine to make you fall head over heels for the region. Unfined and unfiltered, Domaine Chignard's Fleurie "Les Moriers" from the great 2009 vintage carries the scent of wild sweet strawberries. It's so lush and vivid, tasting of blueberries, black cherries and plums. The vines average 60 years old, so this is some deep fruit underpinned with soft tannins.

Reichl missed a great lunch and dinner spot: Indigo on 3rd Street. Try the rosemary chicken pasta, calamari pasta, garlicky flank steak, terrific fresh bread, and have a bowl of cappuccino--they let you sit and enjoy it. ANNABELLE GURWITCH Los Angeles

Let's hear it for the USC linemen who have been so lavishly praised for outweighing the Rams and Raiders. I suggest those sportswriters start weighing the meat at their local steak joint. Not a single touchdown scored against Baylor, Arizona State and Notre Dame! It's a simple law of physics that the bigger it is, the slower it moves. FORD APKING Tarzana

When it comes to authorities on meat, you probably can't get any better than Bruce Aidells. The name that birthed a sausage empire is also behind close to a dozen cookbooks, including 2001's "Complete Meat Cookbook," a classic all-encompassing tome on all things meaty. But in the decade or so since the publication of "Complete Meat Cookbook," the world of meat has evolved in a big way. The rise of small farmers and artisan butchers, and availability of once lesser-known meats and cuts has dramatically changed the landscape, which is now peppered with terms like "heritage," "certified organic," "pasture-raised" and "sustainable.

The following is a blog documenting two Los Angeles Times editors' attempts to lose weight. It all began on Jan. 10 . Eat anything you want and lose weight? Although it sounds like something you might hear on a cheesy infomercial at 3 a.m., it is possible. But, like anything, it's all about the moderation. My friend John e-mailed me last week attesting to his weight loss of 24 lbs. so far this year with a weekly pig-fest included. He writes: "The key to my success doesn't lie in the austere diet or draconian exercise regimen.

How I enjoyed the issue on the Fifth Quarter (April 18). What memories of wonderful food rarely tasted these days. My mother roasted fresh tongue on a thick pile of chopped onions. Those onions cooked down to a near puree of caramelized sweetness suspiciously like some recipes in Michel Guerard's "Cuisine Minceur." My German mother-in-law cooked fresh tongue with vinegar, brown sugar, raisins and ginger snaps--instant sauerbraten. That thick gravy was best sopped up by dark bread speckled with caraway seeds.

Make sure you have a cardiologist standing by before you indulge in Orange County's largest slabs of meat. We tracked down glistening pieces of the finest cuts all weighing in at two pounds or more! Quality is not compromised at these restaurants, each with a different vibe for any carnivore. Don't be fooled by the dim lighting and low ceilings that create an atmosphere of formality. Captain Jack's Seafood and Prime Rib (16812 Pacific Coast Highway, Sunset Beach,  592-2514), a family-owned restaurant since it opened in 1965, gets rowdy when nine-to-fivers and locals in flip flops flood the restaurant and throw back drinks at night.

At the beginning of the third week of the meat cutters' strike, the picket lines were depleted and downbeat. Outside several San Fernando Valley supermarkets, strikers complained of feeling strained and discouraged Monday. At some markets there were only two or three pickets still on duty by afternoon. Bundled against a chilly wind, they chatted among themselves, debating the significance of rumors and speculating on their futures.
