What Is The New Atkins?
Chief nutritionist for Atkins UK, Linda O’Byrne explains: ‘The New Atkins Plan is not purely about weight loss, although that is the main benefit for many followers. It focuses on healthy living, improving metabolic health and maintaining weight by eating a combination of moderate protein, healthy fats and complex carbs from vegetables. Compared to the original Atkins Diet, this rejuvenated approach allows greater flexibility, with individuals able to choose which phase to begin according to their personal needs and goals. The new Atkins is also a much more balanced approach and makes it easier to maintain a low carb lifestyle.’
What can you eat on New Atkins?
Vegetables: Full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre – and with minimal impact on blood sugar – consume 12 to 15 grams of carbohydrates from vegetables from day one.
Fibre: Lots of fibre –particularly from leafy greens and foundation vegetables – helps moderate blood sugar and is filling, assisting with appetite control.
Protein from fish and meat: Adequate (but not unlimited!) protein helps you feel full and keeps your blood sugar on an even keel
Fat: Avoid trans fats and improve flavour and satiety with healthy fats from foods such as meat, dairy, nuts, olive oil, canola oil, avocado and olives Fruits, nuts and dairy: Enjoy an array of cheeses from day one, and introduce a wider range of dairy foods as well as nuts, seeds and fruits after Induction
