used to do it to make weight for wrestling in high school-don't remember if I even knew who Atkins was at the time, but it did work

your on the wrong forum for talking bout robbing your body from its best energy source...you wont be able to effectively workout if you dont have your carbs

but i think your point was more based around a protest of the diet, so it's all good brutha
I'm on Day 3 now, and i'm eating relatively healthy (with the exception of much more fat intake and much, much less carbs) - I'm feeling a bit wierd, but eventually my body's going to start realizing the carb-deficiency and start metabolizing my bodyfat (or so is the theory of the atkins diet)
for those intrested, i'm took in today approx 110 g carbs, mostly from skim milk mix/protien shake

Thats for fat, lazy people... if you are going to do low-carb, you should schedule refeeds and carb loading days as well... a cyclical diet...

the whole diet is masked by the rejection of carbs in a diet. all in all it is reducing the amount of calories consumed. it cuts the carbs at first and then slowly introduces them later on down the road. the majority of the weight loss you experience in the first couple/few weeks is water weight, as water molecules attach to carbs in the body. so if ur looking for a quick wieght loss answer, then yes the diet works. but if ur looking for fat loss, get on a real diet. biologically, the body starts being detrimented after about two weeks of the diet. if the body does not get carbs, which it needs, it starts pulling from other energy sources, i.e. muscle tissue and breaks down the protein into energy. this is a mild form of wasting. if you need me to go on i can. done lots of research and discrediting of fab diets. i hate the mother fkrs.

here is a quote from a UC Berkely Health Letter (May 2000).
If you follow the Atkins diet, you will lose weight—but it could be dangerous beyond a few weeks. All fad diets get you to cut down on calories, usually by limiting the kinds of food you can eat, so of course you lose weight. Most, like the Atkins diet, deny that "calories count," but nonetheless trick you into cutting way down on calories by distracting you with strange rules and psychological/biochemical babble. As with all crash diets, keeping the weight off is the hard part. Virtually all crash dieters eventually gain the weight back, unless they learn the basics of healthy eating, which crash diets do not teach.
