I know an extremely obese man that lost almost 40 pounds on it but......went on vacation and he gained all of it back in ten days. You have to be willing to change your habbits for good

The Atkins diet works, but a diet isn't just something that you can swing on. A diet is a lifestyle change. Atkins is not unhealthy, but you have to actually follow it properly. I have used a personally modified version of Atkins for two and a half years. I went from being 240ish down to 185. However, I do also use exercise to help. Diet alone is only so good. It also helps to know how your body is able to lose weight. I know that I can eat a lot of calories and not have to worry about gaining any, but if I eat too much in the way of carbs I see an increase in weight. There are tests that you can get that will help identify the way in which your body operates.
