    No I don't think so. Some of the bars also state that they're not suitable for induction so don't forget to check!

    You must count them into your 20g a day or you will be going over your allowance.

    You have to count the net carbs in your 20g allowance. I'd also have to say I would advise against having two bars a day or even one every day. They have such a bad rep amongst Atkins users that a nutritionist recently had to defend them on Atkins uk forums because all newbies were being advised to avoid them entirely which is also my preference.

    I do use the RTD chocolate shakes though because they don't contain polyols.
