    One thing that I think most of us have found over the years is that it takes a lot of tinkering to find what works ideally for each of us, and that all these plans are simply a jumping off point. The real key is to find what works for you year after year. It's not enough to LOSE the weight; you have to LIVE the lifestyle for good.
    As you point out, Keto and Atkins are very similar in the first two weeks and then begin to diverge. But don't forget that the current Atkins plans are not all that similar to original Atkins '72. Here's what DADR 72 says comes after the one week induction phase:
    What Happens After The First Week’s Diet:
    Most diets are fixed formulas and are therefore short-termed and self-limiting. This diet is fixed only for a week. After that – because it must be a lifetime diet, it is, as variable as are individual tastes.
    I’ve labeled the additions of carbohydrate that follow’ second level’, ‘third level’, ‘fourth level’, ‘fifth level’, but in fact the additions are interchangeable and flexible. You can make any of these additions any week that you choose. I am so committed to making this a livable lifetime diet that I am letting you select your own variations, within the rules set up by your biological rulebook.
    Put back what you’ve missed the most: The idea is simply to gradually return to your diet first what you missed most. Custom-tailor the diet to suit your carbohydrate additions to suit your lifestyle. All that matters is that you add back to your diet a little carbohydrate at a time, and that you stop adding carbohydrate when you reach your CCL.
    How to know when to put back a little carbohydrate: Ask yourself: Are the keto-stix still turning purple? Am I still un-hungry? Have I stopped eating at night? Do I have more energy? Am I still losing weight or inches nicely?
    Remember, your tape measure is a lot better friend than your scale, not only more accurate, but better able to report on the actual fat (not just temporary water) losses this diet achieves.
    The Second Level: Cheesecake for dessert? At each level, remember you add approximately five to eight grams of carbohydrate daily for a week and analyze the results. Most people agree the best way to handle the second level is to add cottage cheese…
    The Diet Revolution Vegetables (not for level one): All of the above plus; Asparagus, Avocado, Bamboo Shoots, Bean Sprouts, Beet Greens, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Chard, Chinese Cabbage, eggplant, Kale, Kohlrabi, Mushrooms, Okra, Onions, Peppers, Pumpkins, Rhubarb, Sauerkraut, Snow Pea Pods, Spinach, String Beans, Summer Squash, Tomatoes, Turnips, Water Chestnuts, Wax Beans, Zucchini Squash

    Though Ketogenic and Atkins diet, both essentially work on the same principle of consuming low-carb foods, it's how they work and provide you benefits, where they differ.
    In the initial phase, both the diet plans are quite similar but in the later stages of Atkins, you may increase the number of carbs.
    Also, Atkins diet has been linked to some side effects that people were getting sick and over a longer period of time, it actually led to weight gain.

    I know you can eat quite a few green leafy vegetables and add virtually no carbs. I use kale, broccoli, arugala, swiss chard, any dark-leaf lettuce or spinach either raw or stir-fried in coconut oil with my meats. I like to make it spicy with hot sauce and also add sesame oil, garlic, turmeric and onions a lot. Very yummy.
