14-Day Atkins Meal Plan: Day 4
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.

2 chunks cantaloupe wrapped in thin slices of smoked salmon – 138 kcal

Talk about a lot of flavor and nutrition packed into less than 1,400 calories! Begin the day with a great Greek omelette followed by a unique sweet-and-salty snack full of beta carotene, protein and omega-3 fats. More tantalizing flavor combinations await at lunch, as shrimp, pumpkin seeds and pears all play atop this high fiber salad. Then for dinner, enjoy a twist on traditional spaghetti and meatballs with this leaner and more nutritious veggie version.
