What Kind of Flour for Atkins Diet?

What Kind of Flour for Atkins Diet

Atkins-Friendly Flour

The ever-popular Atkins Diet is based on the idea of limiting carbohydrates and sugar from your diet and then gradually adding them back until you know your limit. Though it starts off with only 20 grams of carbs a day in vegetable form, once you find an acceptable amount of carbs to eat while still losing weight you can eat practically any food you want.

After you progress far enough into this diet, the Lee Household Flour Mill will be the perfect tool to have in your kitchen. All flour will be compatible with this diet, and though you’ll want to limit your carbs, it’s generally better to make your own food rather than reading labels to know how many carbs you are eating. Although not compatible with most electric flour mills, popular types of low carb flour for those on the Atkins diet include coconut flour and almond flour.
