atkins bars give me diarrea how about you?
I dont know about anyone else but when ever I eat an atkins snack bar or treat bar, about 3-4hours later i have terrible stomach problems and diarrea. Does anyone else have this problem? I am beginning to think its the ingredient they use as their sweetner. I use stevia liquid and powder exculusivly to sweeten all my food and drinks. Anyone have the same issues? Or is it just me?

It's probably the sugar alcohols in all that stuff. I've never used any, but I know even chewing a lot of sugar free gum can cause same problem. Most people keep those products to bare minimum because they're noctorious for stalling them. Certain sugar alcohols still can have a fairly high affect on blood sugar.

For me it depends on the amount of sugar alcohols in any given bar, usually though I only get gas pains. I have in the past eaten several at a time and still no diarrhea, but severe gas pains!

Yes, the sugar alcohols they use to sweeten those bars can give you gas and diarrhea. It is one of those things that some people are just more susceptible to than others.
