Question about Atkins
#3
If you only have 20 pounds to lose, it may be a slower weight loss.  People with more to lose tend to lose faster.
 
I have found that when I have done Atkins, any kind of artificial sweetener impedes the progress, as it makes you crave more food.  I would munch on frozen berries once a day to curb any sweet cravings. 
 
To help speed progress I would suggest eating a really large chicken topped salad every day with lots of leafy vegetables, never use iceberg lettuce.  You can make your own salad dressing using parmesan, mustard, olive oil, and a dash of vinegar or lemon juice.  I make my salad dressing fresh using this method, I put it in a sealable jar and shake really well. 
 
If you don't eat veggies and follow the "meat only" plan that so many Atkins followers make the mistake of doing (which he also recommends against in his book) you will become very constipated and bloated, and this will likely prevent you from seeing any weight loss.
