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:

Well, you've seen it first hand...
I don't know if it's good or bad. I just know this. you know I was on it. You saw me on it, and I had to get off of it because eating carbs started making me sick. But not as sick as eating protien. All I've been able to eat since is fish. Can you imagine? Oh, and baked potatoes with nothing on them. I'm miserable. Everything else requires anti-nausea pills to stomache. And maybe it wasn't the diet, but it sure seems pretty cooincidental, don't you think?

Now, I'm a big advocate of that mixing dexatrim and phen-phen... *grin* TOTALLY Kidding.

Take care, if you MUST do it, only do it for a week or two and then wait a month or two. seriously.
