14-Day Atkins Meal Plan: Day 3
The Atkins diet is one of the most popular and debated low-carb diets, especially effective if your aim is to lose weight. The theory behind it is that you can eat as much protein and fats as you like, as long as you stay away from high-carb foods. That being said, our meal plan is for Atkins 40, which, as the name suggests, limits the carb intake to 40 grams a day.

This hearty, high-protein breakfast wrap is sure to keep you satisfied all morning, but just in case a yummy Atkins-friendly snack awaits later on, not to mention a savory lunch. You won’t miss the bread in your bacon-loaded BLT wrap, featuring lots of potassium, lycopene and vitamin A from the “LT” contingent. A lighter, Mediterranean inspired dinner finishes things off, with flaky white fish and a heaping portion of cancer-fighting cruciferous veggies.
