I'm treating it as "Atkins OWL" - ongoing weight loss - where you determine how many carbs you have to eat before you weight loss stops, then eat below that number.

I've actually been eating that way for about 4 weeks and lost 3 lbs, even with lots of "slipups" and not feeling deprived at all.

If you work out regularly, expect to feel more carb cravings, but try to use veggies and low-sugar fruits instead of bread or sugar. Some low sugar fruits include strawberries, cantaloupe, blueberries and raspberries.

Here's a link to Atkin's Induction phase

And then add on the foods in OWL phase
