Hey sandbsmom, i know i dont know you, but what i do know is when you have a hip/knee/etc problem and the doctor says rest for 3 months, you better take his word for it. Pilates can be pretty intense. If i were you i would just focus on being active differently (not sure if you can take walks or swim, depends on your condition and by that i mean problem). Trust me, if anything happens to your hip now you'll just extend the amount of rest-time you'll need.

Susan, this isnt actually just a high protein diet. Its a high fat, mod. protein, low carb diet which advices to eat plenty of veggies.
Besides you're confusing Atkins diet for induction, the first and most restricted phase. In fact a lot of people end up eating a large ammount of healthy carbs on later phases.

M49er, you definitely can't have sugar at all. If you have a sweet tooth, try stevia or splenda, but use very little. Atkins teaches you how to eat healthy not how to replace sugars for artificial ones!
The new and improved book - which you should definitely read, states that you can have on induction 20 net carbs a day, out of which you must have 12-15 net carbs from veggies. For more info check the atkins website or better yet read the book.
