Atkins’ Diet Revolution – The Induction Phase

The original diet which started the idea of low carb dieting. It has now become so altered since the original Diet Revolution book came out and has so many variations it’s hard to cover all of them. So I covered just one from the original Atkins’ Diet Revolution.

The recipes on this page are dedicated to the original of original low carb diets – the Atkins’ Diet Revolution: The Induction Phase. This is the two week challenge to rid your body of carbohydrate cravings and enter fat-burning ketosis. This is the strictest of the low carb diets (except for the carnivore diet, of course) but when you see all the recipes you can still make it will be a two weeks and not much of a challenge at all.

As per Atkins’ guidelines all recipes are low in total carbs with protein being the main focus of every meal. According Atkins’ those struggling to lose weight on his diet even when adhering to the carb content limit should take a look at fat content as well. To this end, I placed an additional warning on any recipe where fat content is higher than protein to help in your weight loss journey.

Each recipe is shown with total carb amount (not net carbs) to help your selection.
