Hi and thank you for asking us

Through the question and statement you gave on the above section, i completely understand your concern over this matter. For your information, atkins diet is not recommended if you’re just started dieting. Instead try to eat meals that are balanced but in small proportions. You can use the food pyramid as a guideline. Our body needs energy to keep working throughout the day. The energy comes from the sugar in carbohydrates. So the body has a requirement for it’s sugar intake. Take the right amount to stay healthy and keep your body active.

Since you’re having problems when doing atkins diet, I recommend you to try a different form of diet that allows you to have all the basic nutritions from the food pyramid without deteriorating your health.
