The Atkins Diet in the Indian Context
Phase 3 Pre Maintenance - As dieters near their goals, weight loss slows down, with more carbs added to the diet. Individuals figure out how much carbohydrate each can safely eat without gaining weight.
What do you eat? The goal here is to figure out what is that state of equilibrium that you can maintain without gaining any weight. Sample menu – breakfast – oats with milk or 2 eggs with a slice of bread, and fruits. Lunch – 2 chapatis, a bowl of vegetables and some chicken. Snacks – an occasional treat of dosa or 2 idlis, or a bowl of moong everyday. Dinner – rice or one roti with salad/ veggies/ meat.
