How the Atkins 100 Plan Works

Atkins 100 is a lifestyle approach, and you’ll begin the program by eating 100 grams of net carbs a day split between three meals and two snacks. As long as you are maintaining your weight, you do not need to adjust your carb intake. By offering flexible eating options and the widest variety of food choices from day one, this simple plan makes it easy to feel satisfied while still maintaining your weight and healthy lifestyle.  

Because no food is really off limits on Atkins 100, the Acceptable Foods list below is simply a guide to start you on your journey towards making smart, healthy choices. The acceptable foods list remains the same as long as you are maintaining your current weight; however, you will want to continue to avoid/limit sugar, refined carbs, and any other trigger foods that cause you to consume too many carbs. Net carbs represent the total carbohydrate content of the whole food minus the fiber content. This is the portion of carbohydrates that significantly impacts your blood sugar level.
