Grocery Taste Test: Atkins Milk Chocolate Nutrition Shakes

I have seen many advertisements for Atkins diet products during quarantine last year. In addition, I have been looking for a nutrition shake that is satisfying and good-tasting for a while. I mentioned previously that sometimes in the morning, I have an appetite for liquid food instead of a solid, fortifying breakfast. I decided to try the Atkins shake to see how I liked it.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

I adore the taste of chocolate, so I was pleased as punch to taste the shakes. I liked how it mentioned it was rich in protein and fiber, and low in carbs. I have a hormone disorder, so the fewer carbs I consume, the better. Protein and fiber are friendly for the disorder, as they keep my blood sugar and hunger in check.

PROS

These shakes are actually tasty! I was a little nervous about not liking them, I will be honest. When I first took a sip of the shake, however, I was impressed with how delicious they are. I also appreciate that they are rich in nutrients, so that I can feel healthy and energized. They also contain a bit of caffeine, so that I can wake up but not feel too caffeinated, if that makes any sense at all.

CONS

There is slightly less fiber and slightly more sodium than I would like. However, I did find a max protein version of the shakes that have two more grams of fiber than the regular version. In addition, it contains soy, and since I have a family history of breast cancer, soy is an ingredient I am not really supposed to consume if I can help it.

FINAL VERDICT

It’s a delicious shake, and it’s worth incorporating into a healthy diet. However, it’s important to consume them in moderation, and they should not frequently replace solid food meals. In addition, consume very sparingly if you have a family history of breast cancer, or any issues that can be negatively impacted by too much soy consumption.
