For full information and detailed program information on the Atkins Nutritional Aproach (ANA) visit: http://www.atkins.com/Home.aspx For your convenience, below you will find direct links to the lists of foods that you are allowed to eat during each of the four phases of the Atkins program. I try to indicate in all my recipe narratives whether a dish is or is not acceptable for the initial 2-week Induction phase (forgive me if I missed a few). These handy links will help you make meal planning decisions as you read my recipes .
PHASE 1 (Induction):
PHASE 2 (Ongoing Weight Loss, OWL): *
PHASE 3 (Pre-Maintenance):
PHASE 4 (Maintenance):
* Please note that the Phase 2 OWL foods list states you can have up to 3/4 c. cream during this phase, as it will indeed fit into the “add 5 gram carb” rule that drives this phase. But you are not encouraged to consume 3/4 cream each and every day. Doing so can stalls many people, as lactose is a form of sugar.
