How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 0 1/4 lb Cabbage
  • 2 tbsp Real Mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Sour Cream (Cultured)
  • 0 1/4 tbsp Vinegar (Cider)
  • 0 1/2 teaspoon Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 0 1/8 tsp Celery Seed
  • 0 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 6 ounce Ground Beef (80% Lean / 20% Fat)
  • 1 slice (1 oz) Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 fruit without skin and seeds California Avocados
  • 2 slice, thick/large (1/2" thick) Red Tomatoes


  1. Cut cabbage into halves, core and thinly slice 1/4 of the head.  Transfer to a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar substitute (add a pinch then add more to taste), celery seed and salt. Pour dressing over cabbage.  Mix until thoroughly combined and refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving for flavors to blend.  
  3. Preheat grill or broiler.  Form ground beef into a patty and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Cook until desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side.  Top with Cheddar during last minute of cooking to melt the cheese.  Add avocado and tomato to the burger and serve immediately with the coleslaw.
