vsabino,

I have not tried to reduce calories while also doing atkins, but when I first started I also had your issue with the fat levels. Since I was trying to follow Atkins I had to add some fat in, healthy fats like olive oil on salads, nuts and seeds, etc. Without baked goods and bread to slather with butter/margarine, your fat intake needs a boost. Of course, adding in the oils ups your calories, but I seriously still had no problem with a modest weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week, quite steadily for about 6 months.
