On Atkins diet, having bloody diarrhoea. What is causing this?

Hi, I have been on the atkins diet , low carbs and more protein and fat foods. it has been day 2. I have been having mild diarrhea day 1, and day 2 I have mild diarrhea with blood. I do not have stomach cramps , do not feel light headed or have any other symtoms. Instead i feel less bloated and energenic, but what can cause the bloody diarrhea?

please get a stool r/e done, antibiotics or antiparasitics may be given afterwards.
if the lower GI bleed doesn't subside then a colonoscopy may be indicated, after consultation with your doctor.
