Smile Atkins Bars & Muffins

Just started the Atkins diet. Purchased some bars and on the package, it says 2 net carbs. On the back it says 17 total carbs.

When keeping track, do I use 2 or 17. If on induction, 17 is way to much for a snack.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Use 2 NC, but you may want to save the bars for further along in the program. Learn to eat the 12-14 Net Carbs from vegetables and fill in the rest with cheeses, cream, and other foods from the induction list.

I started Atkins last week for the second time. It is best to not get into the habit of eating the snack bars in the first two weeks (phase 1). I thought about it but felt as though I was already trying to find some "cheats" to make the diet plan easier to follow. Phase 1 is only two weeks out of your life. Give it your best shot.

Default Modified Atkins Muffin in a Minute

Does anyone have a modfied recipe for the Atkins Muffin in a Minute? Atkins did not work for me because of the way too low carbs. I had real physical issues and have returned to a dietician ordered diet for my Diabetes. I, however, did love that muffin because of its easiness, taste, nutrition, and high fiber. I just have an issue w/the whole egg. Any suggestions for using egg substitute in the recipe?

If the recipe calls for one egg (which I believe it does) just use two egg whites instead. Should work.

Good luck with your diabetes.

CarbQuik and DiVinci mixed in basically even parts, then microwaved for about 1.5 to two minutes makes a great muffin bowl. Sometime I add a swirl of sugar free jelly as well. Adjust the consistency and cook time to get the texture you like best.
