Not super low like Atkins, more like the maintenance portion of the South Beach diet. 20-30% of daily calories from Carbs, the rest from healthy fats and protein.
I eat a lot of fresh vegetables, some fruit (more berries than other fruit), meat, cheese, etc.
Very little processed food, hardly ever eat bread and when I do I try to eat whole grain or sourdough (both have a lower glycemic index than white bread)
NO ADDED SUGAR. That means no soda's, or candy, etc.
The key is to try an avoid large amounts of surplus calories hitting your system all at once. Low glycemic index foods, and foods with lots of fiber help slow down absorption of nutrients

However, you can get good results just by eliminating foods with lots of sugar and/or starch.
So no sweets, no bread, no potatoes, no corn, no rice, etc.
Most importantly no prepackaged crap.
Lots of fresh vegetables, some berries, etc.

Go with the low carb/high fat diet and you'll likely lose 2 pounds a week. Numerous studies have shown that high fat diets increase your metabolism all day long so you burn more calories
If you are limited on exercise time, try High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT, google it)
Like a high fat diet, HIIT will boost you metabolism and the effect lasts for up to a day and a half.
