Yes, chances are you will go through carb withdrawal. I still have days where I crave them, and it's especially hard to climb back on the wagon after I've over-indulged and the carb crash has hit. While I'm not a vegetarian, there is no way I could do Atkins for life. I do eat some grain based carbs, all low-fat, low-calorie and preferably whole grain, but I limit them to 1-2 servings/day. I also get carbs from fruits, vegetables, nuts and low-fat popcorn.
