Atkins Advantage Bars
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I'm just wondering if any of you have ever had, or have them regularly (Atkins Advantage Bars).

On the delphi list, they say they are gluten free, but there is no phone number, and there is also number on their website.

So, anything you know about these would be helpful because I would like to add them to my diet.

I looked at the ingredients, and it seems okay (except the maltodextrin) and on the warning label, it doesn't say anything about wheat products (or gluten).

Thanks!

I don't mean to be a brat, :P but has no one had these? I'm craving chocolate and I'm scared to just go by a gluten free list because I did that a few days ago and got glutened.

I don't mean to be pushy....... :rolleyes: but just a yes or no?

:D Well, I HAVE had them, but it was over a year ago and I wasn't gluten-free then so can't tell you about any reaction.

Well I hate to be a brat,:) :) :) but I tried them years before going gluten-free and realy did not like them , at all, so never checked if they were gluten-free. You'll probably have to contat them andask.

I looked up the ingredients b/c I was curious...and I know everyone's different - but for me, soy protein isolate, whey protein isolate (dairy), artificial flavors and Splenda are all things that make me feel sick, regardless of whether or not gluten is involved. (Sorry I can't help more). Have you tried Clif Nectar Bars? They satisfy the chocolate craving (the dark chocolate flavor is really good), they're all natural/organic and they even state on the package that they are manufactured in a gluten free environment!

I'm with Meredith on this one...first of all, Atkins chocolate could never satisfy my chocolate cravings, as i think they taste like fake chocolate... but i have not eaten them since gluten-free so i cant help you. I have, however, had clif nectar bars and they are very good, though i prefer to just pack trail mix. And for my chocolate cravings, i have a little bit of real chocolate, it satisfies me better anyway :) The stuff in protein bars tends to make me feel a little off no matter whether gluten is in them or not. (and i dont think its b/c of cross-contamination, i think its b/c low-carb products are packed w/ lots of crap that is hard for me to digest, like sugar free products are)

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
