  • I am about to start the Atkins diet. Ive heard really geat things about it. You have to be comitted though, because there are a lot of restrictions.

  • Atkins is too low carb for me. If you are a diabetic or prone to low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) I wouldn't recommend the phase 1 at all. I eat "low carb" at about 120 grams a day....compared to Atkins that's high, compared to the average american it's low....but it's a HEALTHY low.
