Anyway. Limited amounts of carbs is the way to go. I have also hear people who did cut carbs craved them so much that when they started to eat carbs again they overeat a lot.
I've heard this about the cravings too, the first two weeks are supposed to be very difficult

I fond this webpage about Atkins diet. It seems like this diet is very dangerous to pregnant women (but who will be crazy enough to be on a diet when pregnant?). It is also scary for everyone else according to this page. It does say though that most people do not manage to stay on the diet long enough to really get any long-term consequences. Personally, I don't think I could live without carbs. I need my bread and potatoes.

Most of the people I know who tried this diet lost weight initially but then gained it right back when they started to eat regularly again.

When I talked to my doctor about weight loss, she told me to think in terms of lifestyle changes I could maintain indefinitely rather than a short term "diet." I might be able to cut carbs for a few weeks, but I could never go without them long term, therefore Atkins isn't for me!

The main vital thing about this diet is, that people can lose considerable amounts of weight, really quite quickly and this can be very motivating.

The Atkins Diet involves restriction of carbohydrates to pass more often the body's metabolism from glucose as fuel to burning stored fat body. This process is called ketosis, begins when insulin levels are low in normal men, insulin is lowest when the levels of glucose .

The Atkins diet, officially known as the Atkins Nutritional Approach, is a diet low in carbohydrates created by Dr. Robert Atkins, a diet he read in the Journal of the American Medical Association and used to solve its own condition overweight.

Probably work but temporarily, it has some serious health risks. Changing your diet to include carbohydrates would be useful and I think maybe already happened.

I tried the Atkins diet and my grandmother and mother have done well. Based on my experience and see and hear about their own feelings, I would say it is not long-term succussful.
