Here is a pic that illustrates the process of Ketosis. The 2 problems you are running into right now are as follows:

Increased carb intake is maintaining insulin levels above optimum... this tells the body to remain on a sugar burning ATP cycle.

Next alchohol consumption halts the bodys from effectively breaking down fat cells into fatty acids.

These 2 things combined are making the Atkins diet useless... Add to that you are consuming significant amounts of dietary fat. With moderate insulin levels and elevated estrogeen levels (another bi-product of alchol) your body is actually accumulating fat.

By the way does that get me the flask... J/K
