14-Day Atkins Meal Plan: Day 5
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.

Also need to have:
Kick things off with a quick-and-easy frittata that tips the scale with 22g protein, not to mention a blast of nutrients including vitamin K, iron and potassium. Next up is a nice dose of bone-building calcium and more protein in your Greek yogurt snack, followed by a heat-and-eat lunch of those fantastic meatball zoodles from last night. Today wraps up with a steak fajita, minus the tortilla of course, but with all this meaty cheesy goodness you won’t miss it.
