They're called "Swirl Stix" and you can have one of them for 3 grams of carbs--no sugar! Just go down your ice cream isle (I know it was hard for me, but I avoided my regular ice cream flavors) and look on the back of popsicle boxes or anything cold really, and if its sugar free, low carbs, go for it! You're allowed 20 a day!

Also, to help..do you often feel like you miss the crunchy sweet side that you don't get with Atkins? Try Bread and Butter flavored pickles! Crunchy and sweet for 1 carb a stick! Or try a diet, caffeine free soda. (Although, I like drinking decafeinated iced tea, sugar free)

The hardest part about Atkin's is not having foods on hand, except lunch meat and cheeses, the best tip I can offer (even though Im really not all that far along, though my family members have gone through it and have been successful) is to precook a lot of your meals and have them ready to snack on--bacon, sausage, hot dogs, etc.

"You're allowed 20 a day!"

I assume you mean 20 carbs, not 20 popsicles. Ha.

I agree, it's nice to have foods on hand. I keep a bunch of vegetables cut up in the fridge, so I just have to reach in to get some. Olives are good, cauliflower/broccoli, celery (stuff with cheese!), sprouts, a nice wedge of iceberg lettuce sprinkled with some seasonings (or just salt- it's delicious plain when really fresh!).

Sauerkraut is delicious, as well as pickles and other vinegary things.

Yum, so much to eat on Atkins!!
