are sugar-free cookies and other sweet snacks okay to eat during the induction phase of the atkins diet?

Possibly: Here is the rule you wanna abide by: eat no more than 20 grams a day of net carbs, 12 to 15 grams of them as foundation vegetables. This means you can eat approximately six loosely packed cups of salad and two cups of cooked vegetables per day. Remember, carb counts of various vegetables vary, so be sure to check them. So you can dedicate 5 extra grams of carbs to anything!

No: Sugar free cookies contain carbohydrates most sweet snacks also have carbohydrates. The Atkins diet illuminates carbohydrates from the diet.
