Three million follow Atkins diet

Three million follow Atkins diet reports the BBC. I managed the Atkins diet for about one and half days before I gave in. That is partly due my low will power, but more to do with the diet being so limited. I couldn’t manage to live off meat, eggs, cheese etc and give up fruit, most vegetables and bread. I know a few people who have lost a lot of weight with it, but most have given up after a while due to the restrictive nature of the diet and acknowledge they have had headaches, light headiness etc. Nutritionists always say that a balanced diet and exercise is the best way to lose weight. We all know this to be true, but cannot help believe a miracle diet will make losing the weight so much easier.
