First off...I will state I've never done Atkins...
but is it really their recommendation that you actually drink 200 oz = 6.25 QUARTS of water a day??! I know with a higher protein level, you want to ensure you are adequately hydrated for kidney health. Still, that much water seems excessive unless you are doing a lot of exercise in hot weather. (Spark recommends adding in 8 glasses = 2 quarts a day...!) If your electrolytes get messed up, your whole body metabolism doesn't do well. Perhaps you are "fighting yourself" here!
I hope someone better educated in this topic can advise you. or, better yet, check with your doctor! Good luck on your weight loss journey....
