dare i say...atkins diet?

kate | Feb 4, 200001:23 PM     11

This is not meant to cause a stir amongst hardcore chowhounds, although most of us have probably at one time or another been on a diet. I love food, but that passion is really starting to show, and I'm thinking about attempting the Atkins diet for a couple of weeks. What's the skinny here? (no pun intended) I can eat lots of protein, I know, so who has some amazing protein suggestions around town? Can I eat sweet roast pork from Chinatown or is that a nono? What the hell are you supposed to do if -no, WHEN- you get a sweet craving? Can I chew sugar-free gum at least? Maybe this isn't such a good idea....
