Atkins Diet Recipes – Low Carb Bacon Beef Rolls (IF)

** Recipe included in my new low carb, gluten free cookbook, Low Carbing Among Friends. Please check it out at our website @ **
I wanted to make another Induction Friendly recipe, and what better way to extend one’s food budget than a meat loaf recipe. Most traditional meat loaf recipes have binders of bread crumb to hold it together and soak up some of the beef fat. They also can be a little dry on the outside as the center gets to the right temp.

This recipe attempts to fix both of those concerns. The binder in this recipe is the cheese (cheddar and the Parmesan). The Parmesan really performs the same function as the bread crumbs did. The coating of bacon also helps keep the top from over cooking.

This recipe is derived from a recipe at Linda’s Low Carb recipe site (

    This is in the oven as I type 🙂  I didn't use Ketchup I had some Chipolte Hot sauce I put on top instead.  I also crunched up some pork rinds as well to help it stay together.

    Kent, OMG lol. I made one of these last week. Now, I am out, and I will be making another one in the morning. You won me over with this one, my friend. We are impressed :)

    I am glad I could give you some real food options for what to switch to when your Nutrisystem meals run out. I know I would have similar sort of anxiety on how long I could continue to last on those pre-packaged meals especially when traveling. With Atkins even traveling on a cruise last week was no issue. Let me know if I can help or answer any questions you might have…

    Presently I'm on Nutrisystem. About 1 week into this I saw an Atkins commercial and then decided to call them and wondered if anyone was on YouTube on Atkins. I found you and your wonderful videos.
    I've lost weight with Nutrisystem but I can't see myself staying on it for life. However it has helped me lose some weight and I figure stick to it until the boxed food is finished then make the switch.
    Meanwhile my Atkins book called The New Atkins for a new you arrived as well as the cookbook.

    Wow Ken! This is a really good meatloaf! I fixed it for lunch today. It is really awesome! Its quick and its easy! I have never done this much cooking before! But after watching your videos and how quick and easy they are and how tasty they look, I am becoming quite the chef! Thanks again for all your videos! Rick

    Another great recipe! Just made it tonight and it was delicious. I wanted to use a meatloaf mix: beef, pork and veal but I couldn't find veal at my grocery store so I just used the beef and pork. Thanks for all the great videos you put on here-keep them coming.

    @budsa11 Good luck with the rest of your life and your video titled "Pissing on a nun" for I am done playing with Internet trolls. If you ever want to eat healthier, give Atkins a try.

  10. Kent Altena

    @budsa11 The fact that you are lambasting things and have no clue what you are talking is about par for the troll course. How the heck am I supposed to know what you find objectionable in your little mind? Give a clue or make a point.

    At the moment, you are doing neither.

  11. Kent Altena

    @budsa11 Are you seriously on drugs? What is the processed foods? The ketchup (tomato paste,spices, and vinegar)? The Bacon? The Worcestershire sauce?

    It is actually unbelievable that you could find something wrong with this recipe.

    What does make it healthy? The fact that eating a diet like this has promoted me to lose 211 pounds, have excellent blood workups, 50 pts lower cholesterol, zero heart risk factors, reversed hypertension, reversed sleep apnea, and got me to run marathons.

    @andyy25 For most the limit is only one's appetite. As the hunger passes, one should stop eating. That amount may be different for different people, so the general rule of thumb is when hungry eat. The rough Caloric ratios for someone in Induction phase are 65% Calories from Fat, 30% Protein, 5% Carbs.

    So can you overeat fat and Calories, yes, but it is typically more difficult to do than on other diets.

    @jadeisback "no need to jump the gun and get offended.."
    Reread my response and see who is jumping the gun. I simply said on a ketogenic diet – energy primarily comes from the fat you eat, and that in meat the flavor is in the fat. I also corrected the whole raise bp thing.

    If you never want to eat pork again, I am happy for you. For me and many, bacon is delicious and close to a gift from God. 🙂

    For health, pork has no negative impact. Sugar and refined carbs can't say the same thing.

    @turbaki2 Unless you want to count sport-related injuries related to running marathons and basketball like sprained ankles made possible only due to energy after starting Atkins; otherwise, no. I have had zero diet related health problems.

  15. Kent Altena

    @jadeisback Well being that Atkins is a low carb, ketogenic diet where 60-70% of your energy comes from fat, I am having a hard time trying to find the negative in that. The flavor in most foods is in the fats.

    As for raising your blood pressure, you do realize a high fat diet lowers one blood pressure and cures hyper tension in most people in a few weeks.

    @alkiller1992 Re: Ramadan
    I would view it as similar to IF (Intermittent Fasting), and there are a number of people that do that for success. While not ideal (eating at least every 6 hours is ideal), it does teach you something about your body and may help lose weight.

    As for Diet 7Up, if you can lose while drinking it (and the aspartame it contains), you can up to 3x per day. Make sure you are getting your water in as well. Check out my water video for tips how to help with that.

    @irishalpha Something as easy as this one is, it really is a good recipe. It is also very similar to my stuffed hamburger recipe too. (Chop up the bacon and patty). My kids love it that way the best as well.
