I'm on Atkins and I get PLENTY of fiber daily and I don't get anywhere near 2600 calories per day.
My suggestion is that you reread the rules of Induction, if that's the level you're on and EAT MORE VEGETABLES!
I agree! I get at least 25g of fiber each day, and I don't eat that much butter. The New Atkins for a New You (NANY) give this example of a typical day's intake of fat:
- 2 TBS oil for salad dressing and cooking
- 1 TBS butter
- 1 ounce of cream
- 2 ounces of cheese
- 2-3 eggs
- 2-3 servings of meat, poultry, fish, or shellfish
- 10 olives OR 1/2 HAAS avocado
- 2 ounces of nuts or seeds (after the first 2 weeks of induction)
Nowhere on there to you see an over-abundance of fat/oil. It may be more than a person doing a low-fat diet wants to eat, but it is not 1,000 calories of butter or oil.
