calculator Calculating Net Atkins Count™


  • 8 spear, small (5" long or less) Asparagus
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 large Egg (Whole)
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Meal Flour
  • 1 tbsp Parmesan Cheese (Shredded)
  • 1/8 tsp Garlic
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.  Prepare a small oven safe casserole or 4-inch by 3-inch dish with a little bit of oil.  Set aside.
  2. Boil the asparagus spears for 2 minutes until tender-crisp.  Drain and run under cold water then pat dry.  Arrange in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Pour cream over the asparagus and then crack two eggs on top.
  4. In a small bowl blend together the almond meal, Parmesan cheese, garlic and black pepper.  Sprinkle over the eggs and place in the oven.  Cook for 5-10 minutes depending upon how you like your eggs cooked.  Longer time will result in a firmer yolk.  The cream will puff over the edges of the eggs and the topping should be golden brown and fragrant.

How we calculate the Net Atkins Count™

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fiber and polyols (such as glycerin and sugar alcohols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fiber and polyols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
