I recently received my free Atkins Quick Start Kit in the mail and I was very surprised by what was sent as a free sample. It is 2 days after Halloween and since I got my candy fix from secretly taking some of my daughter’s candy, it’s time to start eating better and exercising before the holidays are here.
Like most free samples, I expected a small sample of one of their products but instead received the following:
- Atkins Quick-Start Guide with meal plans
- Pocket Carb Counter/Acceptable Foods List
- Atkins Chef Recipes
- 3 Atkins Bars: (1) Atkins Day Break Bar and (2) Atkins Advantage Bars
- Coupons for Atkins products
- Details about the new book, The New Atkins for a New You
This is what came in my kit…

It was really easy to do and my samples arrived super fast. My favorite Atkins bar was the Day Break Chocolate Chip Crisp Bar which is the perfect “Grab ‘n Go” breakfast or mid-morning snack. The two Advantage bars are great as a meal or snack any time of day. The two I received were Caramel Chocolate Peanut Nougat and Chocolate Peanut Butter bars.
Another great addition to the kit is the Atkins Carb Counter and Acceptable Food Lists booklet. I first went to the alcoholic beverages to check on beer and wine….
What is also nice is that they have a list of fast food and restaurant chains and options so you can carry the little booklet with you when you dine out.
I tried the Atkins diet years ago before they had these snack bars and still did well with losing a few pounds. Atkins states that you can lose up to 15 pounds in 2 weeks. I am going to continue to use the handy carb counting booklet as well as the coupons to buy more of the snack bars. Also, a nice walk with the baby in the park will help this afternoon.
