Low Carb Food List For Atkins Diet

Most people that are trying to lose weight are well acquainted with the famous Atkins Diet, which is nothing more than a low carb diet, so I decided to make a Low Carb Food List For The Atkins Diet readily available. Before I get into that list, I want to make sure that you understand the benefits of the Atkins diet.

A controlled carbohydrate way of eating provides you with nutrients that will stabilize your blood-sugar levels. A lot of critics will tell you that you cannot get enough nutrients while doing a low carb diet, like the Atkins diet, and this is just not true. The low carb food list I am going to supply you with are foods that are jam-packed with nutrients to ensure your dieting experience is a healthy one. Now, without further ado, here is your low carb food list.

The following foods are those that you can eat without restriction:

1. All chicken 
2. All fish 
3. All Shellfish 
4. All meat, including beef,  lamb, bacon, veal, ham, and venison.

It must be noted that some meats like ham, bacon, and salami are often cured in extra sugar and you must try to avoid these products if you can.

For the following seven cheeses, you can have 3-4 ounces daily:

1. Cheddar 
2. Cow, sheep, and goat cheese 
3. Cream cheese 
4. Gouda 
5. Mozzarella 
6. Roquefort and other blue cheeses 
7. Swiss

The following is a list of salad vegetables and you can have up to three cups a day:

Alfalfa sprouts, arugula, celery, chicory, chives, cucumber, daikon, endive, escarole, fennel, lettuce, mushrooms, parsley, peppers, radishes, romaine, sorrel

All of these salad vegetables are high in nutrients and provide an excellent source of fiber.

If your salad vegetables does not exceed two cups per day, you may have up to one cup of the following vegetables:

Artichoke hearts, asparagus, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, beet greens, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery root, chard, collard greens, dandelion greens, eggplant, hearts of palm, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, okra, onion, pumpkin, rhubarb, sauerkraut, scallions, snow peas, spaghetti squash, spinach, string or wax beans, summer squash, tomato, turnips, water chestnuts, zucchini

As far as beverages, water is always a winner although you can also drink club soda and decaffeinated tea and coffee as well.

Of course the Atkins diet is a lot more in-depth than this low carb food list, but this will give you an idea of what you can eat and, ultimately help you lose the weight you desire.
