    Hi Whitey,

    Atkins is basically a diet of meat, fish, cheese, cream, eggs, and 1 cup of low carb veggies per day. You need to consume less that 20grams of carbs a day. It is a ketosis based diet. I am trying a modified version called the idiot proof diet (see here; pig2twig ) , which, i think, is a bit healthier, as you can have more veg and its lower in fat. I am enjoying it so far, and have lost 11lb in 2 weeks. I am chuffed with that. The only drawback is that i miss sweet things! I am having sugar free jellies with cream where required.

    I dont know of an Atkins site, sorry.

    Good luck!
