Are you considering giving the Atkins Diet a try? The weight loss program is split into 4 phases with the first phase “induction” being the most restrictive and challenging. Many Atkins followers often find it extremely hard to survive the 2-week initial phase as they must seriously cut back on carbs and get most of their calories from protein and fat. However, it isn’t as terrible as you may think. Let’s kick start your weight-loss journey with the 7-day Atkins menu we are going to walk you through.
