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!

A carbohydrate combined with a protein forms what?

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.

What is 137638 estimated to?

The answer will depend on what you wish to do with the estimated number. If, for example you wanted to multiply by 15.3, then I would suggest 140000. Then 137638*15.3 = approx 140000*15 = 2100000. If, on the other hand, you wanted to subtract 5600 then I would suggest 137600. Then 137638 - 5600 = approx 137600 - 5600 = 13200.
