Adkins was my diet of choice yrs ago. If I remember correctly, you need the high fat foods....especially for induction, or a prolonged induction(for the folks with more to loose) Lower fat foods were discouraged because they had a higher sugar content to make up for the low fat....and you know what the sugar would do. High fat somehow drives this diet, and you excrete the fat...it is not retained. I am sure it can all be expained in the Kreb's cycle, but my old brain doesn't compute that way anymore. Good Luck.
