You are all wrong. Diet and exercise are both key to a healthy lifestyle. Weight is almost exclusively due to diet, while exercise more so determines body composition at that weight. As for the topic: Atkins is inefficient. Eat clean food, low sodium, low fat food. This includes healthy carbs like salads, fruits, and vegetables as well as high quality protein like lean steak and chicken breast. Take fish oil. Eat 5-6 smaller meals a day and snack on nuts, etc. Cut out junk, especially soda. Then, if you want to weigh less, reduce caloric intake.
