Copy for my fast counting I thank you DairyQueen

HERE is the Atkins Quick Start list of Induction Foods. Nothing else is allowed for the first two weeks. You are partly shocking your body and brain into submission (haha) but also ensuring that you go into ketosis – make sure that you don’t eat more than 20 grams of carbohydrates a day, and those carbs really should be from leafy green vegetables. Broccoli is your best friend during these first two weeks.

Use a set of measuring cups for measuring your vegetables and a small scale (food or mail scale) to measure your meats. Don’t worry about anything else—just eat these foods. You don’t have to drink so much water that you’re getting up in the middle of the night.

If you have something you want to eat and it is not on this list, don't eat it (for the two weeks). Then ask! GOOD LUCK!!! you are motivated and you are going to LOSE WEIGHT!

Most fish, poultry and meat don't contain carbs so you can feel free to enjoy them, but be sure you're also getting your 12 to 15 grams of net carbs in vegetables as well.
All fish including:
• Flounder
• Herring
• Salmon
• Sardines
• Sole
• Tuna
• Trout
• Cod
• Halibut
• Don’t eat that fake crab stuff from Japan
All fowl including:
• Cornish hen
• Chicken
• Duck
• Goose
• Pheasant
• Quail
• Turkey
• Ostrich
All shellfish including:
• Clams
• Crabmeat
• Mussels*
• Oysters*
• Shrimp
• Squid
• Lobster
*Oysters and mussels are higher in carbs so limit to about 4 ounces per day.

All meat including:
• Bacon*
• Beef
• Ham*
• Lamb
• Pork
• Veal
• Venison
Some processed meat, bacon, and ham is cured with sugar, which will add to the carb count. Also steer clear of cold cuts and other meats with added nitrates.

You can eat Eggs, Eggs and more Eggs!!! Eggs are one of nature's most nutritious creations. And get creative with your eggs: Add mushrooms or a little cheese. Herbs are fine: basil, oregano, dill are all great.

Eggs in any style, including:
• Deviled
• Fried
• Hard-boiled
• Omelets
• Poached
• Scrambled
• Soft-boiled

CHEESE!! But keep in mind that cheese contains carbs, about 1 gram per ounce. You may have about 3 to 4 ounces of cheese per day. An ounce is about the size of an individually wrapped slice of American cheese or a 1" cube.


You should be eating approximately 12 to 15 grams of net carbs per day in the form of vegetables, which is equivalent to several cups depending on the actual carb content of the veggies you select.
Measure the following salad vegetables raw:
Vegetable Serving Size/Prep grams of net carbs
Alfalfa sprouts ½ cup/raw 0.2

The following vegetables are slightly higher in carbs than the salad vegetables listed above. They also provide important nutrients and add variety to your daily foods. Make sure you stay within the 12-15 grams of net carbs. Unless otherwise noted, measure these veggies after you cook them.

Fats and Oils

There are no carbs here, but keep in mind that the serving size is approximately 1 tablespoon.
1. Butter
2. Mayonnaise – make sure it has no added sugar
3. Olive oil
4. Vegetable oils – Those labeled “cold pressed” or “expeller pressed” are especially good and olive oil is one of the best.
o Canola*
o Walnut
o Soybean*
o Grape seed*
o Sesame
o Sunflower*
o Safflower*
*Do not allow any oils to reach overly high temperatures when cooking. Use olive oil for sautéing only. Use walnut or sesame oil to dress cooked veggies or salad, but not for cooking.

Artificial Sweeteners
• Splenda – one packet equals 1 gram of net carbs
• Clear broth/ bouillon (make sure it has no sugars added)
• Club soda
• Cream, heavy or light.
• Decaffeinated or regular coffee and tea*
• Diet soda (be sure to note the carb count)
• Flavored seltzer (must say no calories)
• Herb tea (without added barley or fruit sugar added)
• Unflavored soy/almond milk
• Water – at least eight 8-ounce glasses per day including...
o Filtered water
o Mineral water
o Spring water
o Tap water
* One to two cups of caffeinated tea or coffee is allowed as desired and tolerated by each individual. If you experience symptoms of hypoglycemia or cravings as a result, do not use caffeine. If you have a true caffeine addiction, it is best to break the habit during the induction phase.
* Limit lemon and lime juices to 3 T per day
