: I went on this diet last Fall and lost 15 pounds very fast. As soon as I started to eat "normal" again, the weight came back on. I got very sick!
: My blood pressure went high and my Calcium levels went VERY LOW! My Doctor told me that your body cannot lose more than 2 lbs. per week. I have followed his advice and I have lost over 20 lbs. on Weight Watchers. He told me it was the safest diet in the world. PLEASE be careful if you decide to go on this diet.

The mistake you made was in the implementation of the diet. You can't go on any diet for a short period of time and then go back to your old eating habits and not expect weight gain and/or complications. If you would have went on Atkins maintenance phase, which allows more carbohydrates, you might not have had the complications. And what is your definition of "normal" foods? Bread? French Fries? Pizza? Pasta? Cereal? These aren't "normal" foods to me since I have adopted a low carb lifestyle. Alan
