Hey,

I've been doing Atkins for almost two months now - I've lost 18.5 lbs (155-136.5, 5'4")

I find what has worked for me is to do the ratio 70%fat-25%protein-5%carbs (no more than 20 or 25 carbs/day)

Since this proves to be quite restrictive, I take supplements (especially potassium) to make sure I'm getting the nutrients I need.

While this is by no means a "lifestyle" (I am currently transitioning back to 50g of carbs per day), it was wonderful for weight loss and I never felt tired or sick or anything like that.
