Your net carbs don't have to come from leafy greens only. Atkins is chiefly a high fat diet. If you eat meat then you will have both. i would concentrate on the food lists and if you eat from them your numbers will fall into place.

I don't believe there is a protein/fat ratio. I had tuna salad last night. I don't measure or even think about the amount of mayo I add.
From Atkins site:
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."

So I read my Atkins book again and yes, its full of great info but I need some advice!
I know how to count Net Carbs, I know that in induction you should have 20 new carbs from leafy greens.
The part I'm confused on is protein to fat. Should I get more protein then fat or more fat then protein? I only ask because I'm confused by the wording in the book and I need to clarify things.
