To get you started on a low carb diet, this list of Atkins Diet foods to eat will give you a solid guideline on your Atkins Diet. Although you should also read the book on the Dr. Atkins Diet plan thoroughly, the list below can give you a short, sweet outline of what the “do’s and don’ts” are for making your own low carb recipes and eating properly.
When looking at a list of allowed Atkins diet foods to eat, keep in mind that this will change over time as you move from one phase to the next. The Induction Phase is the most crucial, and if you learn early on which foods are on this list, you’ll have a good start. Any foods on the Induction list are allowed through every phase of the diet. Consider these the “building blocks” for the rest of the Atkins Program.
Here is my simplified version of the list of Atkins diet foods to eat. I printed one of these lists and stuck it to the side of the fridge for quick reference.
After you’ve gone through the Atkins Diet Induction Phase, you’ll be able to add more foods to the list of what you can eat.
The next phase, Weight Loss, slowly adds some “mid range” carbs in the form of additional vegetables and the occasional fruit. You will also be able to eventually add some other carbs, but be careful and do this slowly.
You should continue to rely on this list of Atkins diet foods to eat I have provided as the basis for most of your meals for the best results.
