15 Awesome Atkins Meal Plans

The Atkins diet has been around for decades now, and it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere soon. In the past, I’ve discussed the topic at length, detailing the strong support for Atkins, along with the opposition to it.

Because of the huge amount of information out there on the web, people seeking to try it for the health benefits it promises may be a little overwhelmed. And, since it’s carefully structured in four distinct phases, some people find it difficult to adapt to.

Realizing this, I knew that people needed a simpler way to understand Atkins. That’s why I’ve compiled these 15 awesome Atkins meal plans for the different phases of the diet so you can achieve weight loss success.

I don’t typically recommend extremely low-carb diets, as research generally supports a more moderate approach. However, if you have your heart set on trying this diet, the following are some helpful meal plans to make the process easier.

Induction Phase Meal Plans

During the first phase of Atkins, you’ll be consuming 4 to 6 ounces of protein at least three times a day, and will be cutting carb intake to a very low 20 grams per day.

Many of these recipes are calculated for multiple servings, so be advised against eating everything you make. They’re all so delicious that you may be tempted to.

Avocado, Prawn, and Fennel Salad

Avocado, Prawn, and Fennel Salad

This shrimp salad will provide you with an awesome 18 grams of protein, and can be eaten either as a main dish or as a side dish to another high-protein, low-carb main dish.


  • 4 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 50 grams fennel
  • 1 avocado
  • 200 grams large prawns
  • 3 spring onion
  • 100 grams rocket/argula leaves


  1. Make the dressing by mixing the oil and citrus juices together in a small bowl with some salt and pepper, then set aside.
  2. In a bowl, toss all the other ingredients, except the rocket, with half of the dressing.
  3. Scatter the rocket leaves into bowls, pile the salad into the center, then drizzle with the remaining dressing just before serving.

Roast Chicken Legs with Spicy Avocado-Tomatillo Salsa

Roast Chicken Legs with Spicy Avocado-Tomatillo Salsa

Warning: this recipe will be hot.

Serrano chiles are actually hotter than jalapenos, so use caution when preparing it. Try a taste of the salsa before adding too much of it to your chicken. But, if you’re like me and you can’t get enough of spicy foods, you’ll love it.



  • ¼ Hass avocado, pit removed
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh tomatillos
  • 2 ½ sprigs cilantro
  • ⅛ cup roasted garlic* (about 10 cloves)
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Serrano chiles, seeded and roughly chopped
  • ⅛ small red onion, diced
  • Salt, to taste


  • 1 small chicken legs with thighs, excess fat removed but skin intact
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
  • ¾ tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 1 sprigs cilantro


  1. Place the avocado, tomatillos, cilantro, roasted garlic, vinegar, water and chiles in a blender; purée just until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and fold in onion and salt. Set aside.
  2. Heat oven to 350˚F.
  3. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof sauté pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken legs with skin side down and sear for 1–2 minutes until golden-brown. Flip the chicken, transfer skillet to the oven and bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes until just done. (Juices will run clear.)
  5. Place one chicken leg on each plate and spoon one-quarter of the salsa around each plate and on the chicken. Garnish each with a sprig of cilantro.

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

Bacon Wrapped Scallops

I don’t need to tell you how much love the Atkins diet gets for including bacon among its list of acceptable foods. This recipe can make a full meal or a great snack. I mean, come on, it’s bacon.


  • 20 bacon (buy the best quality)
  • 20 large raw scallops
  • 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat the grill to medium. Sprinkle the prepared scallops with the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Stretch the bacon a little, then wrap one piece around each scallop. Run a toothpick through the bacon and scallop to keep the bacon in place.
  3. Cook under the grill for 5 minutes. Remove the scallops, turn, and cook for another 5 minutes or until cooked through.

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

I often consider the meatball. Not really anything particular about them. Not their shape, taste, or consistency, but their simplicity and how little I actually eat them. And how rarely I actually go out thinking: Today, I want some meatballs.

But on Atkins, meatballs are a sure way to get a lot of protein in one place.


  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce – divided
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan – grated
  • 3 Tbs. Italian flat leaf parsley – chopped
  • 1 Tbs. garlic – minced
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 3 oz. Mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, 2 Tbs. pizza sauce, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic salt, and black pepper.
  3. Form into 12 equal meatballs.  Bake for 25 minutes, on middle rack in an 8 x 11 baking dish.
  4. Remove from oven, spoon pizza sauce over top of each meatball and top with mozzarella cheese.
  5. Broil on top rack until cheese is melted and golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.

Balance Phase Meal Plans

In the second phase of Atkins, you’ll start slowly incorporating more carbs into your diet. Some people choose to increase this to around 80 grams a day, or maybe stick to a low 30 grams. It really depends entirely on your weight loss goals, and what the appropriate balance is for you.

Salmon Fillet with Cucumber Ribbons

Salmon Fillet with Cucumber Ribbons

Salmon is pretty amazing in a lot of ways. It can provide you with fantastic omega-3 benefits and has plenty of protein.


  • ½ small seedless (English) cucumbers, cut into ribbons
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt, plus additional for seasoning fish
  • 1⁄16 teaspoon ground black pepper, plus additional for seasoning fish
  • ½ tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
  • ¼ tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 1 center-cut salmon fillets, 2-inches thick (about 1½ pounds)
  • ½ teaspoon white or rice-wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh tarragon, chopped
  • ⅛ teaspoon granular sugar substitute


  1. In a large bowl, toss the cucumber ribbons with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat half the butter and all the oil. Season fish with salt and pepper, to taste. Place fish flesh side down in skillet and sauté until crisp and brown, about 4 minutes. Flip carefully and sauté for an additional 4 minutes, until just cooked through. Keep fish warm. Wipe out skillet with a paper towel.
  3. Heat remaining butter over medium-high heat. Add cucumber to skillet and sauté stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar, tarragon and sugar substitute.
  4. Divide cucumber on four individual serving plates; top each with a piece of salmon.

Cauliflower Faux Mashed Potatoes

Cauliflower Faux Mashed Potatoes

The carb count is starting to grow a little higher here, while still providing a nice protein punch.

This is preferably a side dish to a main course with a higher protein content, but you could still mix and match or add your own toppings like sliced chicken or bacon. Remember, this recipe is for four servings of the dish.


  • Cauliflower, raw, 1 head, medium (5-6″ dia)
  • Sour cream, 1/4 cup
  • Butter, salted, 2 tbsp


  • Steam cauliflower until soft.
  • Place cooked cauliflower in a pot and heat to remove excess moisture.
  • Puree cauliflower in food processor and add butter and sour cream.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Goat Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Whoa. That’s what I said when I first saw this recipe title. I’ll let the ingredients do the talking.


  • 1/3 C sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 C chopped shallots, divided
  • 1 tsp Splenda
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  2. Combine chopped tomatoes, shallot mixture, cheese, basil, and 1/4 tsp salt, stirring well.
  3. Cut a horizontal slit through thickest portion of each chicken breast half to form a pocket. Stuff about 2 T cheese mixture into each pocket. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/2 tsp salt and black pepper.
  4. Heat 1 tsp oil in pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan; cover and keep warm. Add broth, remaining shallots, 2 T vinegar, and thyme; bring to a boil. Cook 1 minute or until sauce is slightly thick, stirring constantly. Serve sauce over chicken.

Atkins Style Low Carb Cheeseburger Soup

This recipe is one of those prime examples of what makes the Atkins diet so popular among people who want to be able to still enjoy their food.

Fine Tuning Phase Meal Plans

During the third phase of Atkins, you’ll be learning to maintain the weight loss you’ve reached through the other two stages. You’ll be steadily increasing your carb intake in small increments and adding more variety of foods to your diet.

Asian Beef Salad with Edamame

Asian Beef Salad with Edamame

Thanks to the beef, this meal provides a whopping 37.5 grams of protein. And, because of the way you’ve been steadily increasing your carb intake, the 15.4 grams of carbs you’ll eat in this dish should fit fine within your diet structure.

Pork and Squash Stew

Pork and Squash Stew

At 24 grams of protein and 19 grams of carbs, you might want to watch to make sure you only get a single serving (the recipe makes four servings), but if you play your cards right, this recipe will fit easily within your phase 3 days.

Bacon, Avocado, and Jack Cheese Omelets with Fresh Salsa

Bacon, Avocado, and Jack Cheese Omelets with Fresh Salsa

I don’t know about you, but just reading that title makes my mouth water. For an awesome Atkins breakfast, this omelet is a phenomenal way to start your day with a startling 33 grams of protein and only 6.4 carbs.


  • 1/2 fruit without skin and seed California avocados

Sauteed Chard with Garlic, Pepitas, and Pumpkin Seed Oil

Because of the nature of the 4th and final phase of Atkins, many recipes will work for multiple phases.

Braised Braciola with Celery Root Puree

Braised Braciola with Celery Root Puree

That’s a fancy name for you out there with culinary expertise to delightedly twirl your tiny mustaches to.

I’ve spoken before about the health benefits of cheese. This recipe incorporates sheep’s milk cheese, steak, and a delicious combination of celery and parsley that works for the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th phases of Atkins.

Frankly, the protein to carbohydrate ratio on this recipe is so crazy, I had to include it – 49 grams of protein to only 11 net grams of carbs.



  • 1 ½ pound flank steak
  • Salt, to taste
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • ¾ cup flat-leaf (Italian) parsley
  • 1 medium / large clove garlic
  • ½ cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup finely chopped celery
  • ¼ cup finely chopped carrot
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

Celery root puree:

  • 2 cups peeled celery root in small dice (about 1 pound)
  • ⅔ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • drizzle of truffle oil, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 300ºF.
  2. Season the meat with salt and pepper.
  3. In food processor, combine the parsley, Pecorino Roman and garlic. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, while pulsing slowly, until a paste forms.
  4. Add a thin layer of paste to the flank steak, leaving about an inch on all edges. Roll into a log and tie with butcher twine.
  5. In a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat, add remaining olive oil and sear the meat on all sides until brown. Remove meat from the pan.
  6. Add the onion to the pan and sauté until translucent; then add the carrot and celery. Add the tomato paste and let the mixture brown slightly. Slowly add the beef broth and bring to a boil.
  7. Transfer the meat to a deep casserole dish and add the braising liquid. Cover the casserole dish with foil and the lid to retain the steam. Place the dish in the oven and cook for 2 hours, or until the meat is fork-tender.
  8. Shortly before the meat is done, bring the water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Lower to a simmer, add the celery root and cook until fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain the celery root, reserving the liquid.
  9. Place the celery root and cream in a food processor and purée until smooth. If necessary, add reserved liquid to make a creamy consistency. Season to taste with salt and pepper and add a few drops of truffle oil (if using). Set aside and keep warm.
  10. Remove the meat from the casserole dish. Strain the remaining liquid, discarding the vegetables, and reduce the liquid over medium heat, stirring, until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.
  11. Remove the twine from the meat and slice into 1-inch-thick pieces.
  12. Divide the slices evenly among four serving plates. Spoon the sauce over the steak and serve alongside the purée.

Hopefully this list of awesome Atkins recipes will provide you with some great ideas for meal plans on every stage of your weight loss endeavor, whether you’re following Atkins or not.

There’s no reason you need to follow The Atkins Diet, as there are other methods that tend to get better long-term results. But, if this is something you want to try, these recipes will help.

Did you know that supplements can contain dangerously high levels of toxins like lead, arsenic, and cadmium?

That’s why we test every ingredient of every supplement we produce for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants and ensure they meet the strict purity standards set by the FDA.

Security Check

Some popular pre-workouts are all-natural. Some contain the right mix of high-quality ingredients. Some provide clinically effective doses. But only Pulse checks each of these boxes.

Pulse doesn’t just “contain natural ingredients''—every ingredient is naturally sourced from plants and animals. Pulse contains no artificial or synthetic substances of any kind.

Every serving of Pulse contains 14.9 grams of active ingredients that have been shown to be safe and effective in peer-reviewed scientific research.

Every active ingredient in Pulse is backed by published scientific studies that show benefits in healthy humans.

Pulse contains no harsh stimulants that wind you up and burn you out. Instead, it contains a 1:1 ratio of caffeine and L-theanine, which produces a smooth energy rush and comfortable comedown.

We carefully examined 508 pages of scientific research to find out exactly what should and shouldn’t be in a pre-workout drink.

Every bottle of Pulse is guaranteed to provide exactly what the label claims and nothing else—no heavy metals, microbes, allergens, or other contaminants.

While these types of chemicals may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of them may indeed be harmful to our health. And that’s why we don’t put any of them into our products.

Before you buy a sports supplement, you should know that it's clean, safe, and transparent. And that's exactly what Labdoor's third-party testing and certification means.

It's hard to know for sure, but this probably makes Pulse the most-popular all-natural pre-workout supplement in the world.

If you don’t absolutely love this product, just let us know, and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No forms or return necessary.

Analyzed for purity and potency in a state-of-the-art ISO 17025 accredited lab by Labdoor, the gold standard of third-party lab testing.
