What’s the difference between the Atkins diet and a Low carb diet?

I would like to lose weight. I feel like I have to put myself on a “diet” because otherwise I’ll have no clue what I can and can’t eat, and what I should and shouldn’t be doing. Whats the difference between a low carb diet, and going on the Atkins diet? Are they the same? If not, whats better?
Thank you for your answers 🙂

    Atkins tends to have you start out really low on the carb intake- something like 14 grams where others (Protein Power) start you at 20 grams.

    Depending on which you do might tell you to figure your protein intake a bit different as well. Again the amount is a rather small difference.

    Whichever low carb diet you do be sure to read the book or follow the diet EXACTLY. If you are eating a ton of fatty foods and then throw in too many carbs you will be sorry. Also be sure to eat the protein required because you will stop losing weight if you don’t eat enough.

    Good luck! The first time I did Atkins I dropped 20lbs like it was nothing. The second time around I couldn’t lose a pound to save my life.
