    Tim Ferriss ( author of The 4 Hour Body) seems to think the same way....that the whole calories in vs calories out is wrong. I'm doing his "slow-carb diet" right now.

    I have tried Atkins for the long term. I found it pretty slow going if you eat all you want. When I failed at weight loss (was excruciatingly slow but I ate a lot), I called Atkins and talked to one of the consultants. Their answer was to eat more fats and less protein. I was not shy on fats, but Atkins is not really just a high protein diet. The most severe form of atkins is the fat fast which is eating just fats at 900-1200 calories a day.

    What I have found is that Atkins works if you don't overeat. You can eat more than on a low calorie diet, but you shouldn't eat tons. Later what I did was did pseudo Atkins but also cut down on my quantities a bit. This worked very well. My diet then was to have eggs for breakfast (I stopped the sausage and bacon). A doublecheeseburger for lunch and a modest dinner. This worked phenomenally well.

    Lately I have tried Fast-5 and it also works very well.

    I went on Atkin's in '98 and lost 35 lbs. 10 lbs in the first week. But after being on it for 10 months, I didn't want to see another egg or steak. And now I have Polycystic Kidney Disease, so all of this protein is too hard on the kidneys.

    I absolutely agree, if you restrict your diet to the point that you are burning more calories then you take in, you risk the fact of burning muscle rather then the last bits of fat reserves you have if you have a low percent body fat.
