Atkins 72 Level 1 is pretty much 0 carbs and no counting calories. You eat only certain foods at the different levels of the plan. Level 1 consists of meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, 2 small green a day made with less than 1 cup of loosely packed lettuce. The 2nd week on the plan you would add a few grams of carbs and every week thereafter approximately 5 grams of carbs until you reach your personal carb threshold.
I would urge you to get the book ( I was able to get a used copy in good condition for cheap on Ebay) before attempting the plan. Understanding how & why Atkins works is critical in being successful on it.
I hope this helps!
All the best to you!
