In brief: Atkins and Fat
The atkins diet is primarily focused on protein and an absence of carbs.
Of course, it is good to avoid carbs (especially those with rapid absorption like white bread, white pasta, and sugars). Some people believe that too many fats are allowed on the atkins diet. I have also found that people have a hard time staying on this diet for long. We focus on veggies, fruit, and protein.
