From Atkins site: www.atkins.com/Program/Phase-1/How-t o- Do-Induction-Right.aspx 3. "Enjoy butter, olive oil, high-oleic safflower oil, canola oil, and seed and nut oils and mayonnaise (made from olive, canola, or high-oleic safflower oils). Aim for 1 tablespoon of oil on a salad or other vegetables, or a pat of butter. Cook foods in just enough oil to ensure that they donít burn. Or spritz the pan with a mist of olive oil."
