How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 3 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 1 small Onions
  • 0 1/2 tsp Garlic
  • 2 medium whole (2-3/5" dia) Red Tomatoes
  • 3 tsp Ginger
  • 24 oz Mesclun (mixed salad greens), raw
  • 0 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/8 tsp Black Pepper


For the mixed greens you can use 2 pounds total of the following: arugula, chard, collard, dandelion, mustard, sorrel and turnips. For collard, mustard and turnip greens, you need to blanch them after chopping for the best flavor.
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add diced onion; cook 5 minutes, until softened. Add minced garlic and cook 1 minute more.
  2. Add chopped tomatoes and grated ginger and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in chopped greens (preferably blanched). Mix well, cover and cook 5 minutes, until wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
