Whether you consider Atkins or other low-carb programs restrictive depends on your perspective. I find it extremely restrictive to only have cereals and breads for breakfast options. I also find fast food restrictive because it contains virtually no fruit and veggies. Low-carb programs allow a huge variety of foods, it just takes a few weeks to get used to eating them if you are used to high-carb.
So instead of breads, cereals, sugars, legumes and tropical fruit like bananas you may eat meat, dairy, fish, eggs, nuts, veggies, lower-carb fruit like berries, herbs, mushrooms, oils etc.
You will also focus on eating foods in their most natural state if possible.
Only very few people need to stay in the induction stage (under 20 grams of carbs) in the long run to maintain. And even that allows many different foods.
You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.
