The Atkins Diet in the Indian Context
There are 4 phases in the Atkins diet. Phase 1 Induction phase – Here carbs are cut back to 20 gms a day. This phase has the most rapid weight loss and allows foods that are quite filling, while restricting many others.
What do you eat? Your carbs come only from vegetables in this phase. Your menu will look like this: 2 eggs in the morning, a bowl of vegetables and grilled chicken for lunch, snack - cheese or nuts, and dinner will comprise of just the meat cooked in your favourite style and a bowl of yogurt. Oil and fats are encouraged in this diet.
