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?

concerned!!!
You are at a much greater risk of diabetes on the Atkins diet. If you ever decide to go off of it, you gain all the weight back and more. A sensible diet of limiting sugars and fats with a good excercixe routine is a better way.

My parents were on it, and my husband.
