Thank you for this contribution. You are lucky because the majority of individuals who use the Atkins Diet do develop problems such as raised cholesterol - there is even a court case in the USA relating to this type of problem. Other people regain all the weight they have lost. So if it works for you, that is good, but it is not suitable for most individuals, esp in SA where such a large percentage of the population suffer from raised blood fat levels.
