It’s basically, a low-carb, high-protein diet focused on counting carbohydrates instead of calories. It’s also broken up into four phases: Phase one allows 20 grams of net carbs a day, and it increases with each phase after that.

While you can eat a wide range of things on Atkins—as long as it stays within the carb limitations—Atkins also has their own line of low-carb foods made specifically for the diet.

These Atkins-approved foods made following the plan even easier. I knew if I was having a hard time figuring out what to have for dinner or a snack, Atkins had my back.

Here’s what a typical day on the Atkins diet looked like:

  • Breakfast: a few slices of bacon and two eggs sprinkled with low-carb cheese.
  • Lunch: a salad with lots of veggies and homemade ranch dressing (a mix of mayo and low-carb powder seasoning).
  • Dinner: chicken with a big mix of veggies like mushrooms, peppers, and onions.
  • Snacks: cheese sticks or Atkins candies.
