well i can't speak of the new atkins but i can tell you that south beach does not count carbs and is very veggie intensive. something i think atkins tends to avoid IIRC.

south beach has a 2 week period where you avoid starchy veggies, grains and fruits, but after that you add them back in fairly easily (1 or two a week)

with south beach you need a MINIMUM of 4.5 cups of veggies PER DAY from day 1 including beans/legumes.

also you have 2 cups of low fat dairy per day

you have lean protein and low fat cheese...

basically south beach is good fats good carbs...

and after you learn to make it your own it's just good eating
