Atkins Bar Pros And Cons

There are three different categories of Atkins bars available on the market today: Advantage, Day Break, and Endulge bars.

Atkins Diet Advantage Bars and Day Break Bars are perfect for breakfast or as a mid-morning snack.

Atkins Advantage is a perfect bar for the Atkins bar diet, it is deliciously satisfying, replaces many important vitamins and minerals that are eliminated during Atkins diet.

The Atkins Advantage and Day Break bars will serve as a great snack (if you like the taste) and will help keep you from feeling hungry all day long. However, those following the Atkins diet won’t have those sharp hunger pains very often, but it's always nice to have something in reach when it comes time to eat and it’s just not possible take the time to have a meal.

Atkins Endulge Bars are for your sweet cravings!

Atkins Endulge bars taste just like your favorite candy bars, but there’s only 1 gram of sugar – which means no guilt. It is another step closer to your goal!

Atkins Bar Pros:


Eating them is a great way to stay full for a few hours.

Bar is for a meal replacement and energy.

No sugar added, no hydrogenated oils, high in protein and fibre, packed with vitamins and minerals.

It is the lowest or one of the lowest bars you will find in terms of amount of carbohydrates with 2 - 7 g Net Carbs and 120-240 calories per bar.

It is very, very soft even after keeping it in the refrigerator.

One very noticeable quality of the Atkins Advantage Bar is their strong delicious smell.

The package opens very easily.

The bar is delicious! It is really, really good and if you are on the Atkins diet and haven’t had them you will want to buy them.

Great for Atkins diet, other low carb diets, low glycemic diets and diabetics.

Bars are suitable for all phases of Atkins diet.

Atkins Bar Cons:


They are very expensive.

I would not recommend these for children because of the high amount of fat unless you talk with your doctor first.

These bars are not really for those who don't follow the Atkins way of life.

Experts believe that claims made in the labelling of the products could mislead consumers over the carbohydrate content.
