Someone asked me today if I was going to post anything on Atkins (which would involve counting carbs). The answer is absolutely, yes. Many people prefer this over paleo. I’ve started with the paleo information only because that is what I personally do right now. It is also what I do with my most carb sensitive kids in the office. But when I started all this 5 years ago, I started by counting carbs. It works for sure and I’ve met many wonderful people who do it this way. On the Low Carb Cruise, I met Kent Altena. Kent was struggling with his weight 7 or 8 years ago. It was bad enough (I think he was around 400 lbs) that he was unable to pass his physical and was unable to deploy with his National Guard unit. Soon after that though, Kent followed the advice of his brother and began Atkins. He has been extremely successful and is the ultimate Atkins Geek. He was later able to rejoin the military!
