There’s a reason Atkins Nutritionals went into bankruptcy. Many low carbohydrate food choices are stupid food choices, and don’t help you lose weight. Both the calories and carbohydrates in many low carb snacks are way too high for weight loss. Starbucks sells small bags of glazed almonds and bags of glazed cashews. The calorie count is 220-240 per package, and the carbohydrate count is 15-18 grams. For the same roughly 200 calories and 20 grams of carbohydrate, you could eat a Dove chocolate bar. I don’t recommend either, except on your days off. The little bags of dry roasted almonds and dry roasted cashews from Starbucks are equaly bad, coming in around 240 calories and 7-15 grams of carbohydrate. That’s more calories than in a small Snicker’s bar. You’ve got to limit both calories and carbohydrates, if you want to lose weight. Watch out for most low carbohydrate snacks, as the calories are stupid. Also, multiply net carbs by 6, to get a closer approximation of the true carbohydrate count of any low carb bar or alleged low carbohydrate snack. If that low carb diet bar is labeled as containing 6 net carbs, itt could contain as many as 36 grams of carbohydrate.
