Atkins 40
You eat 40 net carbs/day. 15 must come from "foundation vegetables" and the other can come form any healthy source (no sugar, white flour, etc.) There is some info on the Atkins web site (so you don't have to buy the book). It is Sharon Osborn's diet.

I agree with mummydee. Since we live in the "real world" It is best to find a plan that teaches how to lose eating "real food". Develop habits that will last a lifetime.
