Are you sure that's what the Atkins site says? I've been a member over there for 8 years and I've never seen that. It has been pounded into us, though, that our percentages should be 60-70% fat, 30-35% protein, and the rest in carbs.

Hi guys! I first tried the Atkins diet in 1999, counted total carbs and lost 34 pounds. It is almost 15 years later, metabolism and hormonal changes...and yes, I'm pre-menopausal Sad. So, right now I am stuck for almost a week and have actually gained almost a pound. I'm still exercising 6-7 days a week for 35 minutes and sometimes swimming or toning.
What I have been super confused about is: WHEN and WHY did the carb counts go from TOTAL carbs to NET carbs? I consume more protein and fat than anything no matter what I try. I tried NET carbbing for 3 days...and that is when the stall started and I gained a little weight. I stopped and went back to TOTAL carbs and am still having no luck. Any words of wisdom you can share with me?
