Phase Two

Phase 2: Ongoing Weight Loss

The accelerated weight loss pace of Induction becomes slower and steady during the Ongoing Weight Loss (OWL) phase with the gradual addition of nutrient-rich carbs.

The expanded food options of the OWL phase of the Atkins Nutritional ApproachTM make this the right phase for anyone who only wants to slowly shed a few pounds, or for those who simply want to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

On OWL You Will:
Boost your body’s ability to burn fats.

Make better carbohydrate choices as you expand your taste for nutritious food

Understand your body better as you learn to recognize the amount of carbs you can consume and still lose weight or maintain your healthy weight.

Prepare yourself for permanent weight management.

What Happens in OWL

OWL gives the freedom to truly take weight loss into your own hands as you mix and match the most nutritious food to design your own weight-loss routine.

The Induction (Phase 1) limit of 20 Net Carbs a day is increased up to 25 Net Carbs daily in OWL. Gradually the daily carb tally is increased, in 5-carb increments, until weight loss slows.

Counting carbs is the key to successfully managing the added freedom of OWL. Your confidence will grow as you learn to successfully control carbohydrates in a way that is unique to your own body. Stick with OWL until you are within 5 to 10 pounds of your goal weight.

You’re Not Alone!

Make smart choices with Atkins products. They give you the nourishment you need, including protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and leave out the stuff you don’t want — added sugars, bleached white flour or manufactured trans fats.

Get smart and drop in for a free class or discussion group at Atkins University. You’ll find detailed guidelines and helpful tips for OWL as well as experts to answer your questions.
