You will do great, Pita! If nothing else, I have ALWAYS lost inches even on no pounds lost weeks. You'll be great!

Should see the loss next week then, hopefully.
It may take a little bit to catch up but, you will see it in your clothing. You are doing so well!! Averaging over 3.54 pounds per week is GREAT!

Are there lower carbs per pickles out there?

Sorry if this has been discussed already, but "miracle noodles" can we have those? and since they are zero carb and zero calories etc. can I eat them with veggies in a stir fry? Oh please say yes I am dying to order some.
Pickles!! Gotta love 'em! I didn't know about the splenda based sweet pickles so I will have to look for those! I use a brand I get from Sprouts or Whole Foods. They are called Bubbies. My coach recommended them. They are sugar free. Here is the nutritional link for several of there brands as found on

I haven't done the Miracle noodles yet but want to. I know Jordanna and a few others have ordered them. I am told that we can consider them part of our veggies.

Serving Size: 30g (one packet)
Calories: 110
Total Fat: 0g

Cholesterol: 0mg

Ingredients: Cold-processed cross-flow microfiltered whey protein isolate, natural flavor, xanthan gum, lecithin, stevia.

Looks good to me. What do you guys think?
I LOVE THIS PROTEIN POWDER!! It is my absolute favorite next to Pure Protein. The Jay Robb lines (whey or eggwhite) are both very clean, dissolve well, taste great, low carb, stevia sweetened, hormone free, fat free and a good serving of protein! AND, you can get them in the travel pack singles which is convenient.

I have also been looking for great vegan, gluten free, dairy free, soy free protein powders for my sister. This website offers some great things AND you can formulate your own, buy in small quantities at reasonable prices.
the above seemed great and was very inexpensive per pound. I set this up with a peach flavor, stevia sweetner, did the vitamin/mineral/electrolyte add on and asked for it to ship in a food grade bag as I have a container to use. The cost was under $5.00 per pound!! Here is the nutritional info!

Serving Size 30 g ( 1 scoop)
Servings Per Pound: 15
Total Calories 110 Total Fat .3g Sodium 25mg Carbohydrates .03g Dietary Fiber 0g Sugar 0g Protein 25.6g

Does this mean it's better TASTING or better NUTRITIONALLY?

Also, we are clearly referring to 2 very different products in the Muscle Milk line. The powdered protein I got at Costco is called Muscle Milk PROTEIN + and it's available in chocolate or vanilla. The nutritional analysis on the PROTEIN PLUS looks completely different than the Muscle Milk label you posted. Here is the info for the product I bought which is MM's PROTEIN PLUS
Nutrition Facts
Serving Size: 1 Level Scoop (34 g)
Amount per Serving
Calories 130 Calories from Fat 20
% Daily Value *
Total Fat 2g 3%
Saturated Fat 0.5g 2%
Cholesterol 20mg 7%
Sodium 135mg 6%
Potassium 100mg 3%
Total Carbohydrate 3g 1%
Dietary Fiber 0g 0%
Sugars 1g
Protein 26g 52%
Est. Percent of Calories from:
Fat 13.8% Carbs 9.2%
Protein 80.0%
I would read it to mean better nutritionally. Also, I still think the zero carb sounds better than the muscle milk protein plus. The MM's PROTEIN PLUS Has 2 g of fat which is similar to an IP pudding or ready made drink but there are sugars listed and carbs of 3. Again, definately a good fit as a substitute for an IP packet!! But, if you are adding an EXTRA that you only wanted to boost protein for I would skip this as an option.

You have to choose - eat how you want to look, or look how you want to eat...
