Meat and Poultry Carb Chart - Atkins
Meat consumption has always been important for women, to keep their iron levels up. The Atkins diet is perfect for meat lovers, since most meat is zero carb! Servings are 6oz.

Keep in mind that "meat products" often have sugars added into them to sweeten the taste, and that adds in carbs. That would include hot dogs and kielbasa.

Being on an Atkins or low carb diet is not a license to eat bacon every day and hotdogs every night. You still need to eat healthily!

Most low carb diets recommend only one serving of bacon a week, for salt and other reasons.

Most healthy diets of all styles recommend avoiding hotdogs because of the nitrate level in them. Excessive nitrates are linked to diabetes and other serious diseases.

Stores do now offer hot dots and sandwich meats in a nitrate free variety. I highly recommend you seek them out and use them if you want to keep eating these types of meats. It will be good for your health.

Seafood and fish is separate on its own page.
