Default 1972 Atkins

Someone mentioned the 1972 Atkins diet plan -- that's the one I was on many years ago - it seemed to be very simple -- looking up carb count of foods and keeping your daily total below a certain number. There were no "phases" and nothing called "net carbs"

My memory fails me though in some respects. Does anyone recall the total number of carbs you were supposed to limit yourself to? Was there anything else besides keeping your numbers low? I know there are numerous sites I can go to for tracking the carbs - but was there anything else to keep track of, etc????

I'd like to do the 1972 plan -- any info would be appreciated. Any other site where I might get info on it?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
