Atkins diet..

So, I'm looking at the Atkins diet. There's a couple here at work who are on it. They say they've lost like 20 lbs in the last month or so. That's encouraging, but I'm not entirely sure its safe to loose weight like that. They say the hardest part is the snacks, but that once you get used to shifting your thinking it isn't so bad.
Its a diet that is low carbs. Low carbs, fine. No carbs? Not so good, or at least I wouldn't think so. I remember hearing at one point that you didn't eat any carbs on this, but I haven't fully checked out the website yet. Anyway, I'd still like to loose weight, and the Weight Watchers isn't doing it for me at the moment. Oh, I know, its me, not the weight loss program itself....maybe I just need a different sort of plan?
Any thoughts on the Atkins diet? Stories to share? Advice?

Here's the site:

from what i've heard, you do the no-carb thing for a limited time. that'll lower your blood sugar levels really fast. then you start re-introducing carbs back into your diet... slowly, until you find the level you're comfortable with.

if you start w/ the no-carb part, just remember to drink water and take vitamins, since you'll be getting practically none w/ no-carb.

i would recommend also checking out diabetic diets. they also follow a low-carb plan.
