2. What is the highest level of total carbohydrate intake permitted during the maintenance phase?

The major concept of Atkinsí diet is that in order to maintain your weight you must find your personal carbohydrate balance or Atkins Carbohydrate Equilibrium (ACE) i.e. the highest level of carbohydrate that will not allow you to regain weight or cause hunger and cravings. Each person has an individual ACE. Therefore, one cannot pinpoint at an exact ACE level, which is acceptable for everyone.

A person can continue with Atkins diet until the desired weight loss is achieved. The maintenance phase should be continued for lifetime. In case of any unwanted weight gain, the dieter can jump to the induction phase.
