I've been on a low carb diet for a week now. I don't know if I've lost anything, but I feel a lot less hungry.
I mostly only eat meats, cheeses, eggs, and salad vegetables. Read the label or get the nutrition facts on EVERYTHING. If it has more than 9 carbs (not counting fiber), you can't have it. It is important to eat fewer than 9 grams of carbs per hour so you will stay in ketosis and lose weight without being hungry. It's also important to kick yourself out of the "fat is bad" mentality. Do not skimp on fat on this diet--it will be detrimental to your health! Take fiber and a multivitamin (but not at the same time).
You may drink water, coffee, tea, diet soda (in moderation). Do not add dry creamer to your coffee. Half and half is okay. No sugar, of course. Each packet of splenda counts as one carb.

get off the low carb diet.
it is not healthy for you. Atkins is a fraud.
Especially if you crave chocolate. You will eventually go off this diet.
Diets don't work because people look at them as short term and say "i'm going on this till I lose 10, 20, 30lbs, etc."
When they go off, they eat like crap and put the weight back on, and usually put on MORE weight because they used a nutritionally and physically unhealthy diet, like atkins or low-carb. which plays havoc with your body as it does not preserve muscle and encourages you to take in large amounts of fat- sugar is only one part of it. The reason you will gain back MORE weight when you go off it- (and eventually you will, your body craves sugar in fruits because it needs it and those things are healthy for you- while chocolate is not) because you will have lost muscle as your body will have not been getting what it needs to help preserve it and support muscle maintenance and growth.
Muscle increases your metabolism. less muscle = more fat (loosely).
I suggest instead to you to read some nutrition books and understand the effect of what you eat on you from a scientific standpoint, not a standpoint of someone giving you false diet information in order to sell thier diet plan.
Develop your own eating plan (I say eating plan because it needs to be a LIFELONG CHANGE, but you develop one you can live with) based on healthy choices, you can even work in a "cheat" day where you can eat your chocolate. Something your current "diet" doesn't have.
A healthier version of chocolate (although it still has high calories and high sugar) than regular chocolate is dark chocolate. Not just "hershey's" crap you see in the commercial- which is actually only 45% or so pure, try lindts 85% pure dark chocolate- it is more bitter than you are used to, but for a better choice than milk chocolate it is not a bad treat so long as you limit yourself.
DO NOT do a low carb diet. The idea that eating carbohydrates makes you fat is a myth. In order to lose weight you need to eat carbohydrates in conjunction with fruits, vegetables and lean meats like fish or chicken. Most low carb diets will either wield minimal or no weight loss or a lot of weight loss at one time and then a couple months later you'll find yourself overweight again.
I recommend you just eat less and eat healthy. Try and eat 6 small meals a day with lots of fruits and vegetables. Stay away from "fatty" meats like ham and beef. Instead choose lean meats like fish and chicken. Also drink lots of water as it increases your metabolism which in turn causes your body to burn fat faster.
You should also try getting some exercise. Cardio for 30-60 minutes a day is usually good The best types of cardio are running or skipping. If you follow the principles that I have mentioned than you will notice weight lose. When I was a kid I personally followed this exact plan and lost the weight. Today I still eat healthy and belong to a gym which I work out at every day.

Ok...here's the deal. The problem with low-carb diets is that weight loss only occurs while on the diet. Once a person goes off of the low-carb diet, the weight always comes back-even if the person is eating a healthy and balanced diet.
Check out what the American Heart Association had to say about high-protein, low-carb diets:
“Individuals who follow these diets are therefore at risk for compromised vitamin and mineral intake, as well as potential cardiac, renal [kidney], bone, and liver abnormalities overall.”
It is also believed that this diet, and others similar to it, hastens the onset of Type 2 Diabetes.
Yikes! Enough said.
If you want to lose weight and maintain weight loss; the best way to go is to adopt a healthy lifestyle (eating healthy foods and participating in regular exercise). People who eat healthy and exercise regularly as part of their everyday living have little struggle with managing their weight.

Diet soda is pleasant on a low carb nutrition. Especially with the entire sodas in the market in these days, there are sooo many pleasant nutrition offerings. Also, if you're feeling adventurous choose up a few low carb frozen yogurt or ice cream and make a nutrition root beer waft!

Your body NEEDS carbs and complex carbs (think brown) are what you should go for...whole wheat and whole grain products, brown rice, sweet pototoes, etc. Avoid "white" food (anything with white flour, white sugar for example).
Carbs aren't the enemy, but refined ones have little to no nutritional value. The issue with low carb dieting is that frequently people regain much (or all) of the weight they lost when they get off that unhealthy diet (see source link for some issues with low carbing).
I've done Atkins more than once...the diet from Hell. Terribly unhealthy but you'll lose weight on it if you watch your calorie intake. However, you'll lose weight on any eating plan if you watch your calorie intake. Why choose an eating plan that is actually UNhealthy? I lost 35 lbs low carbing and gained 20 of them back the following year.
Eat right...don't try to eliminate any particular thing (carbs, protein, fats, etc).
Exercise...get your metabolism burning some calories.
THAT is how you lose weight and keep it off long term. I speak from experience and research. I knew low carbing wasn't healthy but I did it anyway...it was a waste of time since I had to re-lose most of the weight I lost when low-carbing. Yo-yo dieting isn't healthy either.
