14-Day Atkins Meal Plan: Day 8
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.
Cauliflower Breakfast Muffins (2 muffins) – 280 kcal
120g canned pumpkin topped with 6 Tbsp homemade whipped cream (no sugar added) – 177 kcal
Leftover Chicken Meatball Vegetable Soup from Day 6 dinner – 510 kcal
4 thin pear slices each wrapped in 1 thin slice prosciutto – 130 kcal
100g NY strip steak topped with 30g crumbled bleu cheese, served with 60g each carrots and broccoli roasted in 2 Tbsp olive oil – 592 kcal
Daily total: 1,689 kcal

The beauty of a breakfast muffin is that it can be made ahead and reheated for a grab-and-go type of breakfast, or else made to order and eaten in a leisurely fashion. Better yet, these particular muffins contain tons of protein, nutrient-rich spinach and almost zero carbs. Later on you’ll enjoy a sort of pumpkin pie a la mode, without all the guilt. And another special treat awaits you at the end of the day — a succulent steak dinner with roasted veggies.
