Atkins Phase 1 : How To Follow It Right.

By Ken Wiseman

The Induction phase of the Atkins diet is one of the most important stepping-stones to successful weight loss. In addition to the list of acceptable foods, there are a few rules that are important to follow during this period of the diet.

During Induction, you need to eat three regular-sized meals per day or four to five smaller meals. If you find yourself jittery and hungry between meals, try breaking down your meals into smaller portions and eat more frequently. In order to stave off carbohydrate cravings, you’ll need to constantly keep your body running on the proteins and vegetables on the plan. Never skip meals and never go more than six waking hours without eating.

You can eat freely from the list of acceptable foods. Do not restrict your fats and proteins. Eat as much of them as you like. Remember, the Atkins diet is not a calorie-restricted diet. The only thing you need to worry about is your level of carbohydrate grams. Make sure to count your carbohydrate grams when you eat vegetables, cheese and beverages with Splenda. At least 12-15 grams of your allowed carbohydrates should be from your vegetable list. While it may be tempting to eat them all in cheese, vegetables are important to your digestive system (especially while on this diet).

In this phase, try to not eat vegetable like cauliflower or squash, pasta,fruit,grain and bread. Later on we will introduce these food in later phases. (pre-maintenance phase) If you are craving bean, know that they also contain carbohydrate and should be avoided. Keep your diet to a high fiber low-carbohydrate. Also eating grains products will slow losing weight.

Any other foods that is not listed on the acceptable food is strictly forbidden while on the Phase 1. Don’t mess up your program by saying “just a small piece” of whatever food you are craving ! You’ll going to eat the whole thing anyways, so don’t !

Remember to adjust the quantity of acceptable foods to suit your appetite. At the beginning of the Induction phase, you may find yourself eating much, much more than you will toward the end of the phase. As your body breaks its addiction to sugar and carbohydrates, you will be less hungry throughout the day. When this starts to happen, make sure to eat only what you need. Eat until you are satisfied and not overly stuffed.

As you’ll become more aware of what you are eating be careful of products claiming to be “carb free”. You should know that manufacturer can round off to “0″ if it’s less than 0,5 grams of carbs. So like a detective learn to find the hidden carbs on the packaging. The same apply when eating out, you will find some amount of carbs in salad dressings, sauce and gravie. what you could do is to eat your salad with Olive oil or vinegar and your meat plain without sauce.

Keep your body hydrated by drinking 8 glasses of water additionally to whatever you are drinking. This will also keep constipation away and eliminate by-products from fat burning.
