Atkins was talking about measuring out a cup, which has ounces.

The nutritional information you looked up is also based on ounces, but they're talking about the weight.

So, to make the two jibe, measure in your measuring cup to get the amount of food you're going to eat, and then weigh it to check out the carb content. You need to mix the two.

An example: A cup of zucchini and a cup of lettuce are going to have different weights because zucchini is more dense. They both fit in the same cup, but they weigh different amounts.
