Today I want to talk about cravings and how to handle them when you are on a diet. Everyone know that usually diets don’t allow the high calorie fattening food that everyone loves. Of course they wouldn’t then you wouldn’t be dieting! I have found three amazing products that are completely low carb snacks that you can have while on Atkins.
Quest Nutrition Protein Bars:
The first product I came across is Quest Nutrition Bars. This company makes many products from protein powder, protein bars, and even low carb potato chips! The only thing I have tried by this company so far is their protein bars. They have 19 different flavors of protein bars and my favorite so far is the chocolate chip cookie dough.
I feel like I am actually eating cookie dough! Before the Atkins diet I was eating a chocolate bar a day! I’m not even kidding so I have been having cravings for chocolate for the past two weeks! When I tried this bar it felt like I was having chocolate and it completely satisfied my craving! The best part about the protein bar is that it only has 4grams of net carbs so it is completely in this diet and the best snack after dinner!
Atkins Indulge Treats:
Another product that I found absolutely amazing was one of Atkins very own products. Atkins makes various products from their frozen meals to their snack bars. I never knew until just a few days ago that Atkins makes their very own chocolate treats. I got the Milk Chocolate Caramel Squares, and let me tell you they taste amazing.
You would think since these products are low carb that they wouldn’t taste good but they actually do it doesn’t taste like the fake sugar that some candies have. I absolutely loves the taste of them and I will definitely buy them again! They have so many different things to choose from too such as Fudge brownie, Chocolate covered almonds, Peanut butter cups, and much more so definitely try these if your craving sugar but you’re trying to be healthy.
Red bull Sugar Free:
Lastly I really am enjoying the red bull sugar free! I don’t really ever like sugar free drinks like this but I decided to give this one a try and I enjoy it very much. I have been getting the 12oz can and the whole can has only 4grams of carbs in it so if you’re an energy drink type person this will work for you on this diet.
I can take or leave energy drinks but I know some people need it so this would be a good alternative for you. I know most people like caffeine and most coffee you can have while on this diet but this is the first energy drink I have found that is very low carb. You need to be careful of caffeinated beverages because they can trigger insulin and stall weight loss. So keep that in mind but if you need an energy drink try this one.
