Our expert says:
The difference between the diet you are proposing and the Atkins diet is that you are still having carbs in the form of vegetables and fruit. Most of the high-protein, high-fat diet only permit the use of so-called negative energy vegetables like lettuce, cucumber, etc which contain just a trace of carbs. If you eat all types of vegies and fruit then you will still be ingesting carbs (which is a good idea and will prevent constipation which is associated with a high-protein diet) and still provide you with valuable vitamins and antioxidants. By all means try you diet as long as you eat all vegetables and some fruit and don't go onto the lettuce jag like the Atkins diet.
