The Atkins diet consists of a four-phase eating plan. Induction - This is the first phase of the Atkins diet. It is also considered the most restrictive phase. In other words, phase one allows you to eat very little to no carbohydrates. You are limited to only 20 grams per day. The carbs you are allowed to eat consist of salad and other non-starchy vegetables. Ongoing Weight Loss - Phase two allows you to add some carbohydrates to your diet. In this phase, carbs are increased to 25 grams per day. Each week, you can increase the number of carbs you eat by five grams. So, the second week of phase two, you can have 30 grams of carbs. The third week you can consume 35 grams of carbs and so on. You continue on the course of slowly increasing carbohydrates until your body stops losing weight. When that occurs, you subtract five grams of carbohydrates from your daily intake. This level will allow you to maintain your weight. Pre-Maintenance - In this phase, you transition from weight loss to weight maintenance.
