It is costly, buying the IP foods and drinks. Wondering if anyone has tried the Atkins Bars? I have been using them for a week now and I am on target and losing like I was when using the IP items exclusively.

Can anyone give me their opinion on this? Do you think I am making a mistake?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
Atkins products generally do NOT mirror the IP products... They are higher in calories, way too high in fat, higher carbs and protein.

Atkins eating is low carb, but not specifically low calorie, also high protein and allows way more fat than IP.

Do you have the nutritional statistics to follow when selecting IP comparable alternative products?

There are so many alternatives that mirror IP, I would stay away from Atkins. You may nit be able to keep up the level of losses for long.
