I haven't done Atkins but I have tried low carb once and it wasn't for me. What I was doing was low carb and low fat though and I know Atkins lets you eat more fat. I think it may work better because trying to cut fat and carbs was just too hard for me. I found that I felt nauseous almost the whole time I did it and since I was barely eating any carbs I didn't have the energy to workout.

BUT, I've had quite a few friends lose weight doing Atkins, alot of weight, so I don't think it's a bad diet. Like Kristy said though, I'm not sure you could do it for life. But, I think it could help you lose weight if you can follow it. I don't know enough about the diet to know how they transition after you lose weight and move to maintenance.

Are you trying to lose weight or get in shape? Stop by the Mommy Fitness board and say hello.
