I did the Atkins diet with a friend of mine about 10 years ago.  Days 1-4 no weight lost.  Days 5-10, lost 16 pounds.  Day 11, called in sick to work.  Day 12, ate a plate of pasta the size of a Bridgestone All-Weather Radial Tire and felt much better.

That diet just isn't right.

I've been on a semi-Atkins diet for 15 years.  I limit starchy carbs, drink a little wine, eat lots of meat and salads.  Eggs and bacon for breakfast.

My weight has varied six or eight pounds up or down.  I got rid of my cholesterol medicine, but am still on a mild diuretic.

I just go by the no processed carbs deal if I'm in it to keep weight under control. 

No bleached flour, no white rice, no sugar, etc. 

I still eat brown rice, whole wheat pasta, wood chips, 40 grit wheat toast, mulch, potatoes, oats, and lentils.  Organic stuff.

I think it makes a difference as a livable alternative to zero carbs.

I have come to the conclusion that we all have slightly different needs in our diets... but for the most part I have long followed shopping the outside aisles of the market (long before mooshell advocated it) and a low carb diet.  I could never be a vegan, I do not feel good at all the next day if I have not had protein for dinner the night before (aka a large salad vs a meat and vegie dinner)... I do eat some carbs, but not a lot... I did have an ear of corn with my baked chicken tonight... I love corn on the cob the "new" microwave method that swept the internet this summer... never had such good corn...

Some carbs are necessary for a good diet; what should be avoided (as has already been mentioned) is the bad carbs such as white bread and processed sugar or corn syrup.

Too much protein is also not a good thing as it is hard on the kidneys.  Basically it's all about balance.
