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.

Even though I find it a boring task I am glad I started recording my food again yesterday. Found that calorie total was great but carb total was too high. ...
