I have been on the Atkins 40 plan for over 3 weeks now and am still loving the food I get to eat. It is pretty amazing when you lose 4 pounds in one week while still eating bacon, cheese and add a little cream in your coffee.
It is extremely easy for me to stay on track when I am home. I have all of my veggies and salads on hand to chop up whenever I need a meal or snack. I also have my Atkins frozen meals in the freezer when I don't feel like cooking or don't have the time to. The problem for me comes when I am on the go and will be away from home. When I don't have the right things available to me my bad cravings kick in and I tend to give in and have something I am not supposed to.
I got the opportunity to attend this amazing all day micro-conference. It began at 9 .AM. and ended at 5 P.M. It was chock full of learning sessions so I didn't want to miss any of them. When I was on my way out to the conference I threw in a couple of my Atkins meal bars in my purse just in case I didn't have any options.
As soon as I walked into the first session they directed me to enjoy some breakfast. It was the standard bagels, spreads and coffee. The bagels looked good but as a huge Atkins no-no I just thanked them, got myself a bottle of water and sat down. I whipped out my Atkins Blueberry Greek Yogurt Bar and thought it was a perfect breakfast with the yogurt, almonds and blueberries in it.
The Blueberry Greek Yogurt Bar is so good! First you get the taste of a rich, creamy and sweet yogurt. Then you get the crunch from the almonds with a burst of blueberry flavor. This bar has 14g protein, 3g sugar, 200 calories, and only 3g net carbs. All of that protein kept me satisfied until lunch time where I went out and got a salad. I was glad I was prepared with my atkins bar because I know hunger would have crept in and I would have given in to the bagels.
Atkins also makes a lot of other amazing flavors of meal bars like Cinnamon Bun Bar and Mudslide Bun! Yum!
