Snack Bar Overview
"Atkins" has become virtually synonymous with successful fat loss and Atkins Advanage Bars are used by millions of people to help keep weight loss on track. The Atkins approach is actually very simple; eat a healthy varied diet, keeping carbs to a bare minimum while emphasizing protein and moderate amounts of fat. The greatest thing about this Atkins approach is, it works. The not-so-great thing is that we don't really live in an Atkins-friendly world and it's hard finding healthy foods that fit neatly into the Atkins program.
Nutrition bars are a great example. You can read label after label trying to find the right ratio of protein, fats and carbs without ever really finding the perfect balance. So it's easy to end up settling for a bar with too many carbs or too little protein. We hope you'll give the Atkins Advantage® bars a try. Of course each Atkins Advantage® bar has an Atkins-oriented nutritional profile, so they are the perfect between-meal snack for dieters or those trying to lean up. Advantage® bar fans include busy professionals, dieters, working parents, athletes and trainers who all appreciate their great taste, choice of flavors, and convenience. Advantage® bars utilize the highest-quality protein sources like casein, whey isolate and soy. This combination of fast-absorbing whey and slow-absorbing casein is a good idea, since it makes the Advantage® bar more satisfying than some other bars. Advantage® bars also supply fiber, which helps to fill you up but without adding any additional calories.
The protein content of the Advantage® bar is about 19 grams. To put that into perspective, 19 grams is a little more than you'd get by eating 3 whole eggs. The Advantage® bars have only a tiny fraction of the cholesterol in 3 eggs, however. Atkins balances the protein content with a lower amount of fat and almost no carbs or sugars (1g). This ratio of high protein, moderate fats and low or no carbs and sugars is key to the success people have had with the Atkins' approach. Keep a few Advantage® bars in your desk at work, and pack a few into your bags or briefcase; you'll always have a convenient and healthy snack handy and won't have to resort to fast food or convenience foods.
