my brother and i went on the Atkins diet over the summer and i lost about 40 pounds, im short, about 4 feet 11 inches and i used to weigh 130 and now i weigh about 90 on a good day. but my brother is 15 and he lost 60 pounds ( hes on the short side to, but not as much as me) Atkins says to have around 20 net carbs a day (carbohydrates - dietary fiber and sugar alcohols) and slowly ease in more carbs wen you lose a lot of weight. you should stay at 20 net carbs a day for at least two weeks, but don't overdo it. eat a lot of meat and veggies. stay away from fruit, bread, pasta (anything starchy or sugary) Atkins bars and foods are good and there are great Low carb products available. I recently discovered this great product Mini Carb apple cinnamon pancakes. their 1 net carb for half a cup of mix and i was able to get 6 pancakes out of it wen i added more water! good luck!

Not sure what a carbohydrate combined with a protein forms, but when you consume proteins and carbohydrates, the carbohydrates release energy slower and lead to an overall slower rate of drop in blood sugar than eating carbohydrates alone. Sorry if this isn't the answer you wanted, I was a bit confused about what you wanted...and I'm not sure if there is a combination of carbs and protein.

there are no pounds in kilometres. pounds are used in mass and weight, and if you wanted to know how many pounds there were in a kilogram then that's different. there is 1000 grams in a kilogram and 500 pounds in one.

The answer depends on what you wish to do with the estimate. If you wanted to divide by 3, I would suggest 225 since 225/3 = 75. If you wanted to divide by 4 I would suggest 224 or 228 [/4 = 56 or 57]. If dividing by 5 I would suggest 225 again since 225/5 = 45.
