Dear Jerry
You can probably use this diet for 2-3 weeks to lose your 3 kg, BUT it is dangerous if you use it for longer. To read more about the Atkins Diet, click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'Weight loss' and 'Diet Detective' and read the article on the Atkins Diet. It is safer to use a balanced low-fat, high-fibre diet that does not exclude any of the food groups to lose weight. Combine such a diet with regular exercise to achieve weight loss.
Take care

I have been on the Atkins diet now for close on 3 years and it is the best thing I ever did. What one needs to watch out for is over consumption of animal products.

Other than weight loss it has cured a number of illnesses I had. Atkins is excellent if followed in moderation.
