Dear Another Opinion
If you read the article on the Atkins diet which I wrote (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then do a Search with 'Atkins diet'), then you will see that people do initially lose a lot of weight when they eat only proteins and fats, but the problem is that they also tend to regain the weight they have lost the moment they return to eating a normal diet. At least the South Beach diet does allow you to eat low-GI carbs which is a step in the right direction. See if the diet works for you esp in the long-term and do consider adding daily aerobic exercise for at least 30 min to whatever diet you decide to use. Exercise can make the difference between failure and success in slimming.
