Atkins diet? Yes or No?

Laughing Goddess | Mar 15, 2003 04:12 PM

I've been considering doing the Atkins diet for some time. I have two friends who have done well on it, but gained it all right back when they stopped. And I met one guy that told me he lost 50 pounds and is doing fine. But I'm worried about trying it -- others have told me that people will gain weight twofold when they stop Atkins.

Are there particular websites you would point me to? I know I could google this, but I wanted opinions from people who have *been* there.

And how do you live without carbs, anyway? This chowgirl loves her bread and pasta. :-)

Thanks, anyone who can help.
