I am a big fan of the Atkins shakes because as a busy mom of 3 kids I don’t always have the time to eat and prepare meals, even if meal prep is involved. While I’m running errands, driving around, taking the kids to after school activities or going to the gym it’s much easier to drink something than it is to eat with a fork or spoon. The Atkins Mocha Latte Shakes fit perfectly with my healthy lifestyle and help crave my sweet tooth. Each shake contains 15 grams of protein, 1 gram of sugar, 2 grams of fiber and only 160 calories. They are creamy and delicious. Perfect for that moment when I’m feeling hungry and just don’t have time to eat.

Choosing a low glycemic eating approach is beneficial to our health because the control of blood sugar and insulin levels is one of the keys to reducing our risk of heart disease and diabetes. This approach to eating is also useful for controlling your appetite – and for those interested in weight loss, it helps there too.
“Glycemic” means “relating to the sugar or glucose in the blood.” The glycemic load simply estimates how much a food will raise a person’s blood glucose level after eating it. The greater the glycemic impact of a food, the greater and more rapid its impact is on your blood sugar level—and that may cause your body to produce greater levels of insulin to return your blood sugar to a normal level.
Eating foods with a lower glycemic index not only can help you to live heart healthy, it may reduce the risk of developing diabetes and metabolic syndrome, which can increase your risk of having a heart attack or suffering a stroke.
