Default anyone else heard the rumour

i have been told that atkins has gone out of business, bankrupt and the products may not be available for too much longer, is there any truth in this. I also noticed that woolworths were selling out the single serve shakes for $1.96 each. I bought about $100 worth!
Of course all those shakes could explain why i plateaud for a couple of months! lol But that vanilla shake was to die for!

Atkins has filed for bankruptcy under section 11, or something like that. See http://www.theage.com.au/news/Busin...l?oneclick=true

They are discontinuing many of their lines, due to low sales. They will still be providing the bars and shakes but that's about it. And for people like me, doesn't help a bit. I'm sticking to Empower for mine I think. Less additives anyway and chocolate is sooooooooooooo oooooo oooooooo good!!

For the other things that Atkins do and Empower don't (like the museli bars and the ranch dressing) I'd say go buy what you can if you see it. Ketogenics does a good sugar-free maple syrup though and they're not discontinuing it.
