Phase: Phase 4









How are Net Carbs Calculated?


  • 5 medium (2-3/4" dia) (approx 3 per lb) Apples (Without Skin)
  • 0.25 cup Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 0.75 tsp Cinnamon
  • 0.13 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)
  • 1 serving Atkins Cuisine Pie Crust
  • 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter Stick


  1. Prepare Atkins Cuisine Pie Crust (see recipe) and press evenly into a 10-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Freeze 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar substitute, cinnamon and nutmeg. Toss until apples are evenly coated. Spoon into crust; dot top with butter.
  3. Bake tart 30 minutes. Cover loosely with foil and bake 10 to 20 minutes more, until apples are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Cool tart on wire rack.
  4. Serve warm or at room temperature, with ice cream and praline sauce, if desired.

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In order to calculate Net Carbs of any whole food item, it's a simple calculation based on the Nutrition Facts panel:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber = (Equals) Net Carbs

For low carb products sweetened with sugar alcohols (ie: glycerin, maltitol, etc), refer to the Nutrition Facts panel of the product:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber - (Minus) Sugar alcohol = Net carbs

This reflects the fact that Dietary Fiber doesn't impact blood sugar levels. Sugar alcohols also have a negligible impact on blood sugar, they too are subtracted from total carbs to yield the Net Carb count.
