I need to round off this diet I've been on, and the Atkins that I've been on doesn't seem to be helping. I lost about 55 pounds on it, but can't seem to lose the rest. I guess I have two questions:

What are people's thoughts about Atkins?

and

If I switch to something else, what would be the best diet route to take?

When I finish losing my weight (about 15 pounds), I want to try and start bulking up a bit. Not too much, just some so I'm not so scraggly in my arms, etc... I'm currently 5'10" and 184-188. Thanks for your help!
