Getting Ready For Myth Busting With Atkins

November 12, 2014

Hello! Did anyone end up making the Kale chips we talked about last week? And the Kale dip? I want to know whose came out the best.

How was your week? I had an absolutely fabulous time with the girls in New Orleans. Thank you to everyone who sent me restaurant suggestions! Between all of you and the mobile app, I found loads of smart options. There were shrimp, crawfish, and Oysters at practically every restaurant, and I even found a low-carb gumbo. Gumbo Ya-Ya they called it- smoky, spicy chicken and sausage that was simmered, not thickened, with the rice on the side.

For snacks they had gator on a stick (which is the body meat of the gator) and gator bites (made from tail meat), which I had blackened not fried.

Next week Atkins is coming to visit me here at “The Talk,”, and I can’t wait because we’re going to be myth-busting! I’ll be reading some common beliefs about weight loss and Atkins, the audience will vote on whether or not they think it’s true, and then Collette Heimowitz – VP of Nutrition and Education at Atkins, will be giving us the facts!

Atkins is also bringing lots of goodies for the audience members, which you can enter to win too! They are giving one goodie bag away in the Atkins community and one on their Facebook page, so be on the look out for details.

But back to the myth busting, do you have any dieting or Atkins myths you are curious about? Maybe Collete can help me answer your questions too.

All my love and support,
Sharon
