I was on the Adkins Diet a few years ago. I lost 90 pounds (from 365 down to 275 p)ounds from Easter to Thanksgiving). I was never hungry. The week of Christmas I spiked a 103 fever, with gall bladder pains, these continued, with numerous emergency room visits "just take Tylenol and go back to work". On Feb 14th they finally did an MRI, I had 7cm and a 4cm cyst in my liver, I almost died and was in the hospital 24 days and off work for 5 months with IV's and Chest Tubes, and pneumonia.
If you use diet dont do it more than a couple of weeks
The bad part is you will gain back the weight. Over years since I went from 155 to 275
