Morning Ladies.

As many of you know I ran out of food, should get it this morning. I bought Atkins shakes and bars for the two days I didn't have food, this got me thinking......

It cost me $5.99 each for 4 shakes and 4 bars If I use just shakes and for one month it would cost about $200 for one month. The nutritional equivalent is about the same, after taking away the fiber carbs the net carbs are less on the atkins food than the MF..

Has anybody considered this? or done this?..

I don't know about the nutrition values, but if you're going to spend the money on the plan my advice would be to just bite the bullet and commit 100%. I would *think* (but not sure) that it could slow your weight loss down. This would end up costing the same/more in the long run. If you want to try it be prepared to compare weekly losses before and after. I'd be curious to know the outcome. Good luck...

We count total carbs on MF, not net carbs...

Comment #2

Even Atkins recommends not having a lot of their shakes and bars because they are known stallers. Becareful and let us know!.

I love their products and find them much more filling then slim fast. The controlled sugar content is key for me!..

Comment #3

Im only doing this for two days till my Medifast order arrives. So far Medifast has been great for me...

My husband is a big Atkins lover. He uses the bars as treats while on the Atkins plan. I don't know if their shakes and bars are meant to be meal replacements like Medifast meals are or just supplemental treats. Check out the nutrition content for vitamins and minerals compared to MF.

Someone said EAS shakes are equivalent to Optifast which is a meal replacement similar to MF. Worth checking out as well until you get your food..

Good to know! I checked it optifast before I came here and they wanted $1000 a month for the food! No that wasn't a typo. 1 thousand!..
