Atkins advantage shakes are too high in fat to be used for IP replacement. They are also too high in calories - EVEN if you compare using Atkins shakes with using IP puddings as shakes.
IP Milk chocolate pudding (if you add extra water to use as shake:
110 calories, 5 cal from fat (well below 30% fat)
7g carb, 2g dietary fiber (5g net carb)
Atkins advantage milk chocolate shake:
160 calories, 80 cal from fat (50% calories from fat, way too high)
5g carb, 3g dietary fiber (2g net carb)
Remember that IP is NOT just about low carb. It is also low fat.
