Hi DeWanna - Confusing, isn't it? Here are the basic conclusions I've come to:
1. There is Atkins the eating plan and Atkins the corporation. One is there to help you lose weight and get healthy, the other is there to make money off you. Do not confuse these two.
2. Keeping #1 in mind, there are also two different 'inductions'. The first one is the 2 weeks where you stick strictly to the list given by the book. The second one is after that where you can have other things, but still stay under 20 grams of carbs.
3. I warn everyone about relying on 'frankenfoods'. If you do that, you're defeating the purpose of this way of eating and you fall into the same fad trap that was created when low-fat became popular. Just eating low carb will not make you lose weight. It's about eating the right
low carb foods, exercising, and eating the right amount of calories.
There's my 2 cents
