how much protein is too much

You'll be fine to have it every day. Don't worry about protein intake, just the carbs. Just make sure you have some fat with every meal. It's a trick in the bodybuilding world to add olive oil to shakes to slow the digestion down (they do it at night so their body has protein throughout the night). You won't even taste it if you add a tablespoon and it will keep you burning fat. Or you could just have some nuts or something with it.

If you are shaky/ dizzy after gym that can also be low blood pressure due to dehydration. DH wasn't drinking enof water to start and really noticed it - now glugs away like me and no probs
Remember that Atkins is a high fat, medium protein, low carbohydrate plan. The fat intake is vital to mobilise our own body fat to provide energy for bodily functions and daily activities.

Don't attempt vigorous exercise on hardly any food at all - that can be dangerous and without carbs to provide glycogen to fuel muscles you may suffer a bad injury.

Atkins has do be done according to the rules for best and healthiest results. Good luck!

I think I've read in the past that our fat/protein ratio should be something like 70/25 (+ a few carbs, depending on your stage).

After watching the brill video J2 posted, this diet is all about fats + some protein.

That said, a shake or two every day will be fine. Maybe mix some cream in with it? I've read some guys here mix a dash of coconut oil in with theirs.

Yep ratio fat to protein right - note that this is calories not weight tho - and since fat has approx twice cals of protein if you are eating equal grams then you are having right proportion of cals.
