Motivation: Helping people find a way of eating with low carb that promotes robust health outcomes and sustainable weight loss and maintenance.
Favorite Atkins Friendly Food: Cashew Trail Mix Bar
Tips for Success: Read your labels. Watch out for hidden carbs; to calculate the grams of carbs that impact your blood sugar, subtract the number of grams of dietary fiber from the total number of carb grams. Also double-check serving sizes on labels; some foods and drinks are actually two or more servings, so you need to add in those extra carbs and calories.

Are you wracking your brain for great gift ideas for your friends and family? Here's a list of health-oriented, low-carb-friendly stocking stuffers for almost anyone in your life.

Go for gadgets. Fitness trackers from Fitbit and Jawbone can track daily steps, sleep habits and heart rate. Perfect for the active person in your life.
Get cooking. My cookbook, The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook, features 200 delicious low-carb recipes that can be made in 30 minutes of less.

There's an app for that. Download the free Atkins mobile app for your friends and family. The app will help them plan meals, count carbs, track progress and pick low-carb meal options when eating out.

The gift of water. Portable water bottles make great stocking stuffers.

Music to your ears. A pair of earbuds makes music easy to listen to.

More music. An iTunes gift card lets your friends and family download the latest tunes to motivate them doing exercise sessions and apps that may help them track their fitness and more.

Exercise tools. Portable resistance bands or workout DVDs means your gift recipients can squeeze a workout in anywhere.
