    Some people stall on one a week (that includes me). Otherwise I don't think there's a specific limit but they can cause toilet trouble so I wouldn't go over one per day.

    I loved them to start with, thought I'd discovered something fabulous whilst on a diet, had one bar every day for a week and lets just say (without being crude) couldnt leave the bathroom for two days and vowed to never eat them again-EVER!

    Atkins bars never stalled my weight loss but the 'bathroom' side effects are simply too horrific, dont do it, listen to people who have been there because regrettably I didnt!!! x

    Atkins brand bars don't have a laxative effect on me, but Thornton's diabetic chocolate bars have to be experienced to be believed! :eek:

    If you can do the diet without the bars you will lose much quicker - I went back to proper induction for the last two weeks to get into a dress and dropped a few pounds quick as anything. As soon as I go back on the bars (ie yesterday) :rolleyes: I gain.

    3 thorntons diabetic chocolate and 2 small bits of vanilla toffee = baaaaaad combination! lol!

    If I eat more than 1 or 2 tdc its game over for me!

    I'm good with the bars tho - no bathroom trouble with them. I have no doubt they slow my losses, but I'm not bothered as long as the scales are still moving in the right direction!

    today this bars saved me from getting off the diet again. i got a terrible sugar craving for 2 days, and today got only brekfast and went to the gym at 4 pm. after one hour work out, i absolutely felt like going to the nearest coffee shop and eat all brownies and whatever sweets available. then i thought about this atkings bar you mentioned here and got one indulge from nearby Boots. delicious!!!!!!!!!!!! and then, i am not proud, i try 2 advantage bars a s well. i know it was a greedy bit but comparing with what would have happened if i got a sneakers only.......then i would have s****d the whole idea of dieting for at least another 3 days.
    thanks
