For those of you that eat Atkins bars
 
Walgreens has them on sale this week for $4.99 per box! I stocked up! :D

Great price, nice of you to pass this on!

Nice. I'm staying away from them until I get started more, but will stock up for later! Thanks.

I love their peanut butter cups...but if I stocked up I would probably eat them all lol. I might go up there and check it out though :)

Thanks for the tip! I don't eat them a whole lot, but DH likes them.

Awesome! Thanks! I have to eat them sparingly since they give me digestive upset but love having one every once in awhile as a treat

Do you guys lose weight while still eating the bars and shakes?

Everybody's different, but I definitely lose when I'm eating them. I have one for breakfast every day, and when I'm working during the day, I'll have one for lunch. Sometimes I'll have a snack size bar for dessert in the evenings with a cup of coffee. I always eat the 2 net grams bars. I don't drink the shakes.

Some people get stomach issues from them, but I've never noticed that with myself.

I have a shake every day for breakfast, and I lose fine. The shakes DO NOT contain sugar alcohols, which is a common misconception. The only contain sucralose and ace K for sweeteners.

I eat the bars only one or two times a month at most, as they contain malitiol which is pretty much the worst sugar alcohol you can eat. They don't stall me eating them at that frequency.

Wow, that is really good to know. I am going to buy some.

I have always loved the bars, but they give me awful GAS problems :( I just realized yesterday at the store that they now have Atkins M&M's and Peanut M&M's

I did this once. I then went back to the store for a bottle of Immodium.

Thanks--I've used them off & on, and have had a couple this past week when I started back on Atkins. They've never bothered me at all, & I always continue to lose with them. Off to Walgreens later today!

Thanks. Love the coconut/choc ones.

Were they in the same section as the bars? I'll have to watch for these! :D

They stall me and a lot of people like crazy, unfortunately. Maltitol is evil. I'm fine with the shakes, but I prefer to make my own with cocoa powder and soya milk
