One of the challenges of successfully sticking to a diet is convenience. Fast-food options litter almost every street corner, and it doesn’t get much easier than having a pizza delivered to your door after a long day.
Because of all the temptations around us, sticking to a diet typically involves quite a bit of planning. When you’re trying to eat more of certain foods and less of others, planning your meals almost becomes a necessity.
While meals can be easy to plan because you usually have a general idea of when and where you will be eating, it can be harder to prepare for those moments throughout the day when you really need a snack.
It’s not always easy to find a guilt-free small snack when you are on the run. Luckily, Atkins has three new solutions to this problem that are acceptable during any phase of the diet:
These delicious, roasted almonds are coated in rich chocolate and only have 1.5 grams of carbs. Plus, they have a low-glycemic impact so you don’t have to worry about having a sugar crash.
With pretzels, chocolate and peanut butter, this sounds more like a candy bar than a snack. This great treat has 16 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbs and can take the place of an entire meal.
Yogurt bars have always been a great snack, and this one can be used as a meal. With 14 grams of protein and only 3 grams of sugar in each bar, you’ll have no trouble sticking to your Atkins diet.
Don’t let a lack of healthy options derail your dieting. Instead, let these low carb snacks hold you over until you can enjoy a great meal. The bars can occasionally take the place of one if you are on the go or short on time.
