      LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A lawsuit filed by a man who claims the
      low-carbohydrate Atkins diet caused him severe heart disease may
      proceed in Florida, a county judge ruled this week.

      Jody Gorran, 53, claims his arteries became blocked from following the
      Atkins diet and "eating large amounts of pastrami and cheesecake" for
      more than two years, according to court papers.

      Palm Beach County Court Judge Susan Lubitz denied defendant Atkins
      Nutritionals Inc.'s motion to dismiss the suit, which was filed in May
      by Gorran, of Delray Beach, Fla.

      The suit seeks about $15,000 in damages, which will be donated to
      charity if it succeeds, according to Dan Kinburn, senior counsel for
      the vegan advocacy group funding the suit, the Physicians Committee
      for Responsible Medicine.
