Induction Diet For Adkins Weight Loss Plan

The induction diet is the start of the Adkins Weight Loss Plan.  The Adkins plan requires restriction of the consumption of carbohydrates.  During the induction phase of the diet, carbohydrates are kept to a bare minimum in order to start the ketosis process.

The induction diet is the most important phase of the Adkins diet.  Do not skip this part because the entire weight loss plan depends on successful implementation of induction.

The idea behind the Adkins diet is that if you replace carbohydrates with protein, you will burn fat rather than muscle.  It is a severe weight loss plan and requires that you follow the rules to the letter. This is especially true during the induction diet portion of the plan.

You will find that induction is the hardest part of the Adkins diet.  There are two reasons for this. First, you will miss your daily dose of carbohydrates the most when you first give them up.  Secondly, you have the fewest carbohydrates – only 12 carbohydrates a day – during this phase. For instance, nuts are allowed later on in the Adkins plan, but during the induction diet, they are prohibited.

During the induction phase, you can eat as much of specific foods as you want.  For instance, all fish, fowl, shellfish, meat, and eggs are allowed. You are also allowed a small amount of vegetables – up to 12 carbohydrates worth.

Because there are limited foods that you can eat during the induction diet, it is very important to have a book or computer program which gives you the amount of carbohydrates in all plant based foods. 

You should not eat any packaged foods during this phase of the Adkins diet.  Almost all packaged foods have a good deal of carbohydrates and are sure to be induction diet busters.

You should also plan your meals carefully to ensure that you are getting a wide variety of types of food.  If you do not plan ahead, you may find yourself becoming bored with the types of food you are allowed. This will lead to cheating.  After all, you do not want to eat bacon and eggs or steak at every meal.

Unlike other diets, if you fall off of the Adkins diet, you cannot simply start again the next day as if nothing had happened.  This is because the Adkins diet is all about conditioning your body to invoke ketosis. This is necessary to switch your body from just losing water weight to start burning fat.

You can stay on the induction diet portion of Adkins for as long as you want in order to maximize weight loss or fat burning.  However, the plan recommends that you stay on induction for at least two weeks.

After induction, you can begin to add more carbohydrates into your diet, but only in the form of vegetables.  Nuts are also allowed in small quantities after completing the induction diet.

Adkins is not an easy diet to follow.   Buy many people have experienced tremendous weight loss success on the plan.  You start Adkins with the induction diet and go from there.
