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.

Don't eat three!

Yes, I forgot. The bars, so easy!
And I wasn't hungry that day, so had one for breakfast, one for lunch and
one snack bar after dinner....

I woke up around 3AM with terrible stomach cramps, I won't go into
detail, but it was horrible!
I ended up taking Emetrol, &UP and saltines (off LC, but
had to) and then on Monday remembered vinegar.
A couple of tablespoons of vinegar (cider with the "Mother" is best)
in a glass of warm water (as many ounces as you want, I don't dilute
it as much as I did the first time, because it works so well, I don't mind the taste!
It boosts the immune system, but in this case, it helps your digestive system work better.
After about an hour I felt better, and finally that evening, felt good enough to go out for dinner!

So from now own, like "sugar-free" candy, I only eat two. Three is BAD.

I hope Atkins is working on this, I know they change their foods from time to time. I need the bars for easy meals, so I will just be careful from now on.
