Yes, less than 20g is fine but the 3 cups veg. also gives leeway for the incidental carbs in eggs, cream, cheeses, etc to stay around 20g total.
The Atkins induction plan with the 4oz of a list of certain cheese and other limits on a very specific food list was created so if you follow the plan as written, you do not need to calculate the carbs. The 20g carb total is "baked into" the plan.

I had a list like Thud proposed, and this is VERY helpful. Especially if you want to eat foods NOT on the permissable list, for variety. Knowing the counts on those will keep you in bounds of the 20 carb limit for induction, or the next level at 25 carbs....

I like the nutritional benefits of beets, so I do have these occassionally for health reasons. And I like pumpkin ---in cheesecake, a lowcarb version.

My suggestion is pick one way and live with it for a time until you learn it and understand it.

And remember your salt!!! Like a salty broth, or as I do salts straight up with a chaser--water. Or as one man suggests-- add 1/4 tsp to a bottle of water.


This a such good info. Thanks. Yes I like pumpkin too.
Making a list of my carbs to keep right in the kitchen.
Yes, I need to make sure I'm getting my broth in every day. It's easy enough.
Thanks again!

Right, the plan isn't hard to follow. I just overthink things
This was very helpful to me. Thanks.
