The OWL phase is all about choice. The choices you make should focus on healthy and pleasurable additions, with a strong emphasis on foods that contribute both. As you add foods in roughly 5 gram carb increments, you can probably move beyond vegetables to other foods, such as nuts, berries and possibly grains. Although you will be eating primarily natural, unprocessed foods, you will find an increasing number of convenience foods created for people seeking to follow a controlled carbohydrate nutritional approach. Remember the mantra: Read the Label! (See "How to Read a Label" on page 241-245.)
There are also many inviting recipes in this book, some using unique products designed for the person following a controlled carbohydrate regimen. Also see Dr Atkins' Quick & Easy New Diet Cookbook and go to www.atkinscenter.com for even more recipes.
