Atkins Diet Information

The Diet

The Atkins Diet was launched in the 70's when Dr. Atkins published the New Diet Revolution. Atkins spoke up against the medical establishment and told us of the effects of sugar and carbs in foods, and how managing your intake of carbs would lead to weight loss.

The two week induction phase of the Atkins Diet, is the strictest phase of the diet, where only pure proteins are allowed, and a very limited amount of carbs. The proteins allowed include meat, fish, poultry, and eggs, an pure fats such as olive oil, butter, and mayonnaise.

Only 20 grams of carbohydrates per day are allowed during this period, via vegetables such as broccoli, salad, and asparagus. No bread, grains, starchy vegetables or fruit should be eaten during this phase.

The dieter then moves through two more phases, slowly building their carbohydrate intake, until they know how much can be eaten without putting on weight - and moves into the Life time maintenance phase.

Have a look at our overview of the Atkins Diet Plan.
