I researched the program and was fairly impressed with what I found (though I am NO expert), then tried it, and *personally* I had a really hard time with it. I guess I just really like to eat and I didn't have what it took to follow it. I don't like to be overstructured, or limited, so Atkins seems to just be the best way for me to go. I'm comfortable on it and I get results.
That being said though I know two women that have done it and had amazing results. They are happy, look healthy, and seem to actually enjoy the program. Its almost one of those things you would have to try for yourself and see if you *can* do it.
