If you’re watching your weight, don’t even think about skipping breakfast. When you don’t eat in the morning, chances are you’ll overeat at other meals and eventually put on pounds, not take them off.
In fact, according to research presented at the American Heart Association’s 2004 annual conference on cardiovascular health, the rates of obesity and insulin resistance among people who always eat breakfast are up to 50 percent lower than for those who frequently skip the morning meal.
Luckily, you don’t have to prepare an elaborate meal in the morning to get the necessary nutrition. Atkins Nutritionals Inc. suggests eating a protein-packed bar as a satisfying, on-the-go breakfast or snack.
Granola used to be considered a health food. However, most packaged brands are full of sugar and often trans fats. If you hanker for this crunchy treat but don’t want all the carbs, you’re in luck. Atkins Advantage Granola Bars are full of wholesome granola taste, without added sugar or trans fats.
These low-carb granola bars are portable and satisfying, and are great sources of protein, calcium and fiber. They come in a variety of flavors, including Wild Berry, Golden Oats, Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter.
The Advantage Granola Bars join Atkins’ established line of Advantage Bars, which come in flavors such as Chocolate Decadence, Pralines ‘N Creme and Almond Brownie. Over the past seven years, the Atkins Advantage brand has flourished, branching out from the ready-to-drink shakes and shake mixes that most weight-loss companies offer.
Another choice for breakfast on the run is Atkins Morning Start Breakfast Bars, which come in eight delicious flavors.
Atkins has always believed in providing low-carb enthusiasts with the products they most want and need. Its approach is a scientifically validated nutritional strategy for weight control and better health based on controlling carbohydrate consumption.
Today, Atkins continues to offer exciting new products, each one building on the brand’s rich history.
