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

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

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.

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!

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

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
