You're most welcome, of course Btw, I noticed on another thread where you posted your weight/height ... it sounds more than fine to me as it is I am shorter and I would be happy to see that number on my scale (I can't see any numbers at all at the moment as the batteries have gone Well, some things we're better off not knowing :p )

Cheepmunk I had no idea artificial sweeteners were so bad for you. Thanks for the heads-up article. Question though, I only use "Splenda" is that bad for me too? Thanks again for the awesome information
Sorry for the late reply. RL threw me for a loop last week. I hope everything is going well with weight watching, though.

While Splenda (sucralose) is similar to natural sugar (sucrose), by the time they're done processing it, it is nothing more than an artificial chemical sweetener.

As far as I know, the difference between sucralose and aspartame (aside from the structure) is that Splenda has a much longer half-life (floats around in the blood longer before being degraded), whereas aspartame breaks down very quickly. Despite this difference, the initial insulin spike when your body thinks it has consumed tons of sugar (but really hasn't) would still happen, I think, since the whole point of ALL artificial sweeteners is to mimic sugar.

So the short answer is, yes, it probably is just as bad.

Another article! (with more details)

frozen fruit is always a good filler. you can eat just a few pieces, but because it's frozen it takes longer to eat therefore you get full easier.

yogurt. yoplait is best in my opinion. 100 cal.

sugar free frozen fudge bars. 40 cal a piece.

steamed brocolli and green beans with spray butter. basically 0 cal.

soy cheese. under 70 or 80 cal for 2 slices.
sara lee delightful bread. (same cal. as the cheese)
150 cal sandwich.
i liked it with sliced tomato and basil.

luna bars. lots of fiber.

great advices everyone!
when i'm hungry i just go to the fridge and grab some veggies or a fruit.
a really good snack are veggies, such as carrot or celery. you can eat them with a lil bit of a sort of fat-free/low-fat cottage cheese. they're really filling cause you trick the stomach by chewing hard things..

First of all, I love my sweets. But I can't eat a bag of cookies, so those 100 calorie packs are great--they keep the calories and fat down and you still can indulge.
The fruit chew snacks are great at 100 calories.
I used to eat celery sticks with peanut butter for a healthy snack too.

Another really great thing when you really need some chocolate is Cadbury 100 calorie bars. They come in milk and dark chocolate and are soooo good! You can buy them in bulk at Costco and palces like that but they are sold seperately all over the place. Keep your eye out for them!

A favorite thing of mine for breakfast or snack or whatev is raspberries, strawberries and blueberries with danone silhouette yogurt and a little granola. The granola is high cal but really fills you up. McDonalds has a fruit and yogurt parfait similar to the one I make for only 150 calories. They also have a grilled chicken sandwich that is REALLY filling for only 380 calories. I don't know if you can get their utritional information anywhere but a friend of mine is the district manager of McD's and sent me the info. Let me know if you want to know about other menu items!

I checked out the website, and the price isnt too bad, 13.99 for 24 candy bars. But they want 11.99 for shipping to the US. Sheesh! Anywhere in the US they carry them?

Last time I had a sugar free one it was gross. I want to try those philly something or others someone mentioned.

Erin, a while ago you mentioned Vlasic had tabasco flavored pickles. I checked their website, and didnt see them. Are you sure they are Vlasic?

Icebreakers Sours. They are 0 calories and i got totally addicted to them. Be warned however, i found out the HARD way that just because they are sugarfree DOES NOT mean they are cavity free. I had 2 teeth drilled from my excessive eating of these little miracles. Two words:. MALIC ACID

I love rice cakes, especially with peanut butter. I'm also addicted to eating granola, I usually make my own because I find the store-bought kind way to sugary. Sugar-free popsicles are great too.
