I would stay away from the Atkins bars during Induction.
The Atkins shakes are ok, but use them cautiously. They stall some people. Also, they aren ' t as filling as the same amount of real meat, poultry, eggs, cheese and vegetables. Of course, you should not have any of the shakes that have more than one or two carbs per serving ( like most of the SlimFast and Certify shakes ).
It ' s best to eat the most unprocessed foods possible.
However, I often drink Atkins shakes for breakfast on work days and they don ' t seem to affect me badly.

I am ending this discussion.
Atkins shakes - Acceptable even on induction.
Atkins bars. - Not acceptable, I dont care who says diverse. I am right, they are wrong. Period.

lol kyp.
I have had both the shakes and the bars.
I do believe the bars have stalled my weightloss, that combined with the lack of my water intake.
The shakes don ' t really do much, they are tasty and are a good quick breakfast if you don ' t want to cook.
I would say stay away from the bars. I was bad and bought a box of them last night. They are addicting, so just save yourself the trouble and don ' t buy them, that way there ' s no temptation. I ' m regretting buying the box I did last night.

Dear Supportive Group..
Thanks for your support on providing the information to those that responded in a supportive way.
Question? Does this forum allow members to " end a discussion? ". Possibly it is just a stylistic approach but it is helpful to those of us to field supported in our discussions rather that blocked.
Your knowledge and support is the benchmark of these discussion boards and I thank those that provide that.
Take care,

This is my first post here and I don ' t want to re - ignite what appears to have been debated much in the past. However I thought I should share that I have been eating 2 Atkins bars each day of my ongoing induction and so far I have lost 20. 6lbs in 25 days. My starting weight was 231 and I have been counting the bar net carbs as printed on the box. For me, the bars have made the process much easier to follow. I have one for breakfast in the morning and another for a mid - afternoon snack.
I don ' t mean to doubt that for some people the bars can stall weightloss but I wanted to share that has not been the case for me. It ' s possible of course that I would be losing weight even faster without the bars but I ' m pretty happy with my progress so far. Just my 2 cents.

once in a while i have one of the EAS low carb bars ( usually the one w / 2 net carbs ) or the 1 carb atkins day break cinnamon bun bars. I think you just have to listen to your body and how it responds to them as far as weightloss and stalls. I seem to be ok with them until I decide I want the whole box ( AH! ).
Don ' t you love how the " new look " atkins brand bars and boxes no longer include the warning that having more than 2 a day can cause a laxative effect? Why would they take that off the labels when they still have that same laxative effect, lol.10 октября 2008 г.
