NOT having carbs almost killed me. I bonked once on my exercise bike from not taking in enough carbs, fell off the bike and hit my head on the bed footboard.
I think the Atkins movement is a cult, akin to Scientology. I've never seen people proselytize a form of eating the way they proselytize that.
There is nothing that beats a regular low-fat (NOT no-fat!) eating plan, moderate portions, fresh, healthy food, plenty of complex carbs. Its what all reputable medical professionals and health organizations recommend.
