I have been watching my carb intake for a while now and it has been one of the weight loss programs that has worked for me. Cutting down on sugar and white carbs has really helped cut down on headaches, feeling of hunger and giving me extra energy. I do eat some carbs but the carbs that I eat have to be whole grains, vegetables and fruits.
Though I always try to make an effort to plain ahead with what I will be eating for the week there are always things that pop up. I try to prep my meals for the week and have them in the fridge or freezer but when you have a very socially active toddler, last minute events and play dates come up and I have to have something quick on hand. This way I don't pick up or eat things I am not supposed to.
On the days that I have to leave early and don't have time for breakfast I have the Atkins French Vanilla Shakes on hand. I love the taste of the French Vanilla because it is really creamy and flavorful. It is super easy to take one out of the fridge while it is super cold and drink away while I get ready to go out.
Before I go out I always make sure to throw in a couple of Atkins Bars into my purse. A lot of times there aren't low carb friendly places to eat so I like to have insurance in my purse on a snack that I can eat. I went to a conference months ago that only served bagels, pastries and orange juice so I was happy that I had already had a shake and had my snack bars waiting for me in my purse for lunch time.
When I am having all day events or we are stuck in major NYC traffic I get home so late that the last thing I want to do is cook in a hot kitchen. I always have a few Atkins Frozen Meals in the freezer for days like these. I just take it out of the box, and pop it in the microwave and in minutes I have a meal that is low carb, tasty and filling.
