I would say a TKD or CKD would be better. It would be hard to train with weights on an Atkins diet because there are no carb ups or anything to replace lost muscle glycogen.

Ditto what Bradley says. IMO it would be hard to train effectively on Dr. Atrkins in the long run.

I'm with Bradley.

I'd love to see Dr. Atkins try to do a set of squats or deads. He'd probably keel over after the 3rd or 4th rep.

Didn't know that, but with all the fat and cholesterol he eats, I'm not surprised.
