No, you haven't ruined anything, don't panic. Atkins bars, whilst not ideal, are better than falling face first into a tub of Ben & Jerrys!

Put it behind you, move on, tomorrow is another day etc etc. You are in prime carb flu territory if youve been LCing for less than a week, so dont feel bad. Cravings hit all of us now and again. Before the next shopping trip, eat something fatty and satiating so you won't be tempted. And make yourself a fab and delicious LC meal tonight to remind you how much nicer it is to eat this food than processed crud.

Its the net carbs you need to worry about anyway, though UK labelling is net (its just the US who have total carbs). Avoid the bars though, they are full of crap!

Agree - steer well clear of anything thats pre packages as LC. the best thing you could do is buy a bar of Green and Blacks 80% chocolate and have 1 or 2 squares to get you through. It also make you feel less 'deprived' and it is yummy and very low on carbs. Plus lots of goodies in dark choccy too, so all is not lost. That got me through the dark times....
