The reason you're having gas problems is because your body isn't used to the fiber. Atkins is mostly animal foods, right? Animal foods contain no, zero fiber. I don't know too much about that diet but any reading I have done suggests that it changes the homeostasis of your body and creates weight loss, however, in the long run, a diet full of saturated fats and very high in protein and so low in fiber will eventually encourage the typical American diseases -- heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, kidney disease, to name just a few.

I would suggest you check out the McDougall board, the people there seem to have a really great time, they know lots of things about Atkins because lots of them have probably been on it, they have lots of information about McDougall way to lose weight, how to stay on it, how to make a comfortable weight and healthy diet part of your lifestyle, not just a temporary diet where you lose weight only to gain it all back. And improved health and energy as a bonus. Check out that board.
