Strict Atkins for athletic training? Bad
It is a crash diet that cannot be maintained.
But, there are lots of other less drastic carb restricted diets that may be beneficial:
I like the ideas from Protein Power

Too much Protein won't kill you, its not even bad for you. Just go to www.t-mag.com and use the search engine and previous articles to find the nutrition plans you're looking for. They have tons of great articles about this stuff.

I've been doing low carbs pretty much these past 3 months, with a modified Gracie diet. Today, I am on atkins.
Gotta love In and Out Double doubles protien style!

Smackdown gave you THE source. T-mag is great. As an athlete doing, I assume, martial arts 2-3x a week or more you will need energy and going totally ketogenic for most people will mess them up and make them feel like they have the flu in terms of energy.
This is a really awesome diet I used for a period of a month or so, maybe less come to think of it. I'm a mesomorph so I lose bodyfat really easily, went from 8.2% to 7.4% which was a new low for me and good times. It's a modified ketogenic diet. I worked out intensely and had a high level activity and I was fine in terms of energy.

I personally know several people who have lost a significant amount of weight on the Atkin's diet. Then, without fail, they gained ALL the weight back and then some. At some time you WILL begin eating breads, cereals, pasta, fruit.....again. And when you do you will blow up like a balloon. It's just not very practical. All things in moderation is a much more balanced and practical approach to weight loss and maintainance.
Weight loss is not rocket science. Burn more calories than you take in.
Eating alot of protein is only bad for you if you have serious liver or kidney problems.

Exercise, adequate nutrition, rest and plenty of water can correct for almost anything while you're younger.
But isn't it a fact that vegetarians live longer and have more endurance?
I think that 30% Protien would be the highest I'd go.
