Congratulations on almost reaching your goal weight! If you’re within one stone of your goal you should be thinking of moving into Phase 2 of the New Atkins nutritional approach.
It's not advisable for you to switch back to eating a higher amount of carbs immediately, as this may lead to weight gain and water retention. Re-introducing carbs gradually will actually help you to continue to lose weight, while allowing you to assess your tolerance to carbs. It's very important to go through all four Phases of the New Atkins nutritional approach, until you've found your own New Atkins carbohydrate balance when you will be able to eat a variety of healthy foods and maintain your target weight.
If you’re one stone away from your goal weight and want to start adding more carbs into your diet, it's perfectly acceptable to go into Phase 2 and introduce 5 grams of carbs at a time. This means you'll be able to eat foods such as berries, pulses, nuts and seeds, as well as a greater variety of dairy foods, not to mention bars from the delicious Atkins Endulge range. When you’re within 10lbs (4.5 kg) of your goal weight, start adding carbs at 10 grams carbs a time and go into Phase 3 (Pre-Maintenance).
