    The diet does not kill energy. The first few days, or even the first week or two, can lead to carb withdrawal symptoms but after those have gone you feel good, full of energy and even pretty optimistic!

    Not everyone suffers carb withdrawal. Of those who do, some will have very mild symptoms and others, fairly severe (it is known in Atkins circles as 'Atkins Flu') but it always passes.

    Make sure you keep up your low carb vegetable intake. This seems to make low carbers feel better than if they skimp on veg. Drink lots of water or other permitted fluids!

    Good luck!
