Sandwich buns, 2 net carbs
Bought the bun and roll mix from atkins.com and whipped up a batch just now. Each bun has 4 total carbs, 3 of which are fiber. 2 buns per sandwich, so 2 net carbs per sandwich. Tastes fantastic. You add 4 eggs and a stick of butter to the bun mix, which adds alot of flavor and moisture to the end product.

Yes limiting carbs is good for cutting but not to the extreme of atkins. You don't want to decrease to much, how will your body fill its glycogen stores it can't from fat. so where is your fuel for your muscles. Quick question how many of you have truely dieted for say a body building show(I have do 3 and my wife was a national level fitness competitor and body builder)? Extreme low carb diets are a bad idea(just my opinion). Its all about eating the correct carbs, protein, and fat.

Couple that with PWO Protein+Carb shakes and muscles keep their energy for lifting while the body burns more fat overall. For more information, check out www.c-k-d.com. While I'm not a competition level bodybuilder by any means, I've done extremely well on CKD. I've lost 33 lbs of fat in 10 weeks and added between 10 and 15% to ALL my lifts during that same time (without gear).

I caught that right away. This bread may be low on carbs, but is an artery clogger. I guess in moderation it would be okay. I wonder how many buns this mix made?Originally Posted by sage

You should read more about the scientific literature behind these diets, and more about the adaptive ways of the body.Originally Posted by jetset
In terms of glycogen stores....
1) You're right, the body can't make glycogen from fat, but it can oxidize protein to form it if absolutely necessary.
2) Even if you were eating a 0 carb a day diet, your body's glycogen stores would be around 50-60% of full capacity, which is sufficient for most training routines unless they are of the high volume nature.

Hey sheesh, I agree with number 2 and with what some people have said above but I am so sick of hearing about people running to Atkins for a quick fix.

I get them from my local natural food store. Plenty around in NYC. The company's name is The Baker. They have their regular line and their low carb line. Comes in bran and flax. Both nutritional sound and taste pretty decent.Originally Posted by hamper19
