I personally think low-carb is the way to go. It is working for me. When we have too many carbs all the time our bodies just never use their stored carbs. So you can have a thousand calorie fast food meal. Your body will use say 100 calories it needs right away and store the rest, then you will feel hungry again soon, and then eat more carbs.
When you break that your body gets more efficient and using stored carbs so you actually feel less hungry even after eating fewer calories. It does totally work. I am not Atkins at all. More very limited bread, pasta, cookies, all baked goods, etc. But still veggies and fruit. No fruit juice though.
