I´ve personally been on Atkins since June 2003 and have reached my desired weight. I´ve held it without any effort or problem for many years. My boyfriend, who began at over 300 pounds, dropped down to 230 within six months. He still has more to go, but even the current weight change has made a substantial difference in his life. He has been gaining energy since he began.
I have many other friends and family members who have successfully lost weight - and kept it off - by using these diets.
It comes down to eating healthily every day. If you "diet" (temporarily) and then, when you reach your target weight, start eating poorly again, you´re going to gain weight again. That´s a fact of life. This is not a "diet" as much as a new way of eating healthily every day. Eat healthy food, exercise moderately, and you will maintain a weight you enjoy.
Note that low carb is NOT a diet of "sacrifice". You´re always full, and always eating delicious food! You can have filet mignon, lobster, asparagus, and delicious homemade ice cream. This is a diet of luxury and flavor.
