Phase 4  Maintenance - Atkins Maintenance brings together all that is learned in the first three phases to the diet regarding the individual body's response to carbs. Armed with that knowledge, weight loss can be maintained permanently, according to Atkins. 
What do you eat? This is a continuation of the end of Pre-Maintenance, where the carbohydrate level "balance" is found - as you can now eat many carbs without gaining weight. Sample menu - Similar to the one in phase 3, but if you think that you are able to maintain your weight by eating rice everyday, you may. If after 2-3 months you feel a slight weight increase you can cut back on the carbs.
