Before you start using the counter, you need to know your daily carb allowance. How much will depend on which phase of the Atkins diet you are in.
As you progress through the diet, you will begin to work out your carb tolerance – that’s amount of carbs you can eat before you begin to put on weight. Use this as your guide.
Our carb counter is just a guide. There’s always a bit of natural variation depending on the product you use. It’ll give you a fair idea of what your carb intake will be for any given meal, but to be sure, always check food labels.
If you’re going to hit your weight goals you need to enjoy what you’re eating. We’ve got lots of mouth-watering low carb recipes to inspire every stage of your low carb journey, from induction to maintenance. If you’re really stuck, try asking around on our forum for guidance from other Atkins dieters and our professional nutritionist.
