In partnership with FaveHealthyRecipes, my son recently started the Atkins Diet and has lost 17 pounds in 3 or 4 weeks on the diet. It has been remarkably simple for him — even dealing with school lunches. We prepare a couple lunches as week for him, and he eats deli sandwiches (no bread) or salads with eggs and meat for when he eats at school. This was one of his first low carb items he prepared himself, and it turned out really well. Puppy chow was one of his past favorites, and now he has a good low carb conversion for it.

FYI – as any good dad, I am protective of my kids, so any perceived negative comments about my son will be subject to immediate block.
